Question about Akai LCT3201TD 32 in. LCD Television
I bought the LCT3201TD about a year ago, 3 days before the warranty expired it began this problem. I press the power, the indicator light turns green, the screen flashes the blue Akai screensaver screen, and then immediately shuts off (indicator light back to red). Its frustrating because the company refused to contact me until almost 3 months after I called and emailed them while the 3 days remained. Now they finally call me back and say there is nothing I can do. Any suggestions on repairing the television?
Take the unit into the service center - have the service center diagnosed the problem - they will order the part - but the parts are not available - DONT WAIT - The manufacturer must exchanged the unit because the the manufacturer must provide the parts for up to 5 years by law after the the tv is manufactured. Have the service center provide you with a workorder stating the television is not repairable because the parts are not available - then call 800-726-4405 - they will start hte process to exchange the televsion - LONG PROCESS to get an exchanged television

I've been able to get mine to turn on by unplugging it for 10+ seconds, plugging it back in, and then turning it on.

I gave up coming up against closed doors and boxed it up and bought a new Sony 32". Not good for the future sales and reputation of the Akai company. That's really bad you can't even replace the parts after only one year. I did not realize they were disposable TV's. The battery in my remote lasted longer than the TV. I'm happy now with my Sony although I miss the built in DVD.

I have same problem with my 32 inch model. Cause of problem is the power circuit board # E7802-005008 which is no longer manufactured. I am trying to work with AKAI at this time, but have not recieved any help as of yet. If anyone can find a supply of this board, please contact me. I think I could sell a couple of hundred.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.
Here was the problem.
My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of
course) and found four bulged capacitors.
Many electronics companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years
instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail
prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all
sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.
Here are some options for you.
1. Have it fixed by a professional
2. Open your TV and find PSB. Check
for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged
or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board.
3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.
Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself
it will save you hundreds.
I have a tip/tutorial
on this site that may also help. It
gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. It's
called: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem.
Hope this helps and Good luck.
