Question about Akai LCT3201TD 32 in. LCD Television

6 Answers

Powers on, screen flashes Akai screensaver and then shuts off

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?

    I have the same issue with my AKAI 27 in with built-in DVD. Does anyone know what the prognosis is for this issue??


  • Patti Fearon Mar 15, 2008

    Exact same problem, mine is a 27" LCD/TV/DVD combo-had it one year and the sensor light does not stay on, just started happening out of the blue. Ha, I even plugged the TV into another outlet and it worked! But I tried turning it on this morning and the sensor light crashed again. I know this is weird, but I plugged it once again into another plug-in (on the same bar) and it worked again. The remote control is not connecting at all with the TV. I guess I can never turn the TV screen off again? That's stange we have the same problem and they said there was nothing they could do?

    Similar problem with 27inch set. Can we wire directly to the ON/Off switch and bypass the power saver circuit? On mine, the screen never comes on.

    Same problem as everyone else!  TV will not turn on, sometimes red light will turn to green for a second, then back to red.  I plugged it into different outlet and it worked for a few minutes, then nothing again.  VERY frustrating as this TV is only 2 years old.

    Looks like I'm certainly not alone. I have had the same problem. The LCT3201TD is a year and a half old and when I called Akai was told the problem sounded like the power supply unit. I asked for a repair center in my area (upstate NY) but was told there wasn't one. I brought the unit to a local repair shop and was told I needed part # E7802-005008, but Akai told them it was no longer available. That diagnosis cost me $108.

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.

Hi We bought a Sony Bravia 40" 2 1/2 years ago. Model # KDL40EX400. After about 14 months we started to experience something very bizarre. The TV would turn itself off. No lights on the screen. Af

At some point you have to cut your losses, this is the reason I suggest getting an extended warranty with coverage (including the maker) of 3 years, 80 of the 140 sets in our shop are less than 3 years old, if this set had that they would have to fix or replace the set----One reason I choose to answer your question (I do this here for free) is this set ought to have a error buffer, when set fails it will count the event and that also indicates where the issue is.

Most of the Sony sets for the last decade with set off and using the Sony remote: Display, 5, vol down, and POWER will if set comes on bring up a display with a number of shortened items listed----they should all if the set has this be a zero. Any with a number indicates a issue and the number indicates the number of times this event has happened.

Did you closely inspect the sensors that "detect" a paper-jam?
The sensor could be stuck, and thus would be sending a FALSE signal.

Take the printer to a qualified technician, and explain the symptoms.

Less than a year into ownership camera would not turn on and is non-responsive to charging. Never dropped or abused. Replaced battery but still wont turn on or accept charge. i don"t know warranty...

Go here for warranty look up:

If by chance your warranty expired 10 days ago, try reasoning with Kodak about your issue and how the failure occurred 30 days ago and you just now got around to repairing the main unit, not battery. It happens to all of us, I'm sure they'll cut you some slack on the 10 days.

Now if your warranty expired months ago... :(

Same problem

It sounds like the classic "timer problem" that requires a "kit" (mostly capacitors) to repair it. To have someone do it (such as your service person) for you can be expensive and time consuming. Sets that are 5 or more years old usually have other problems too which, simply put, is a complete cleaning of all mirrors, fans, and filters.

Just as when the warranty expired. Ouch! Granting that the power cord is connected properly, the culprit here is a Power Supply Board gone bad. It's not a simple 'blown fuse' case. Repair can go upwards of $400. What I can recommend is to verify Sanyo's warranty terms. If it is in fact two years, you can call them (being polite helps) and request for a concession repair. It's like a courtesy one-time freebie repair for you. Build your case from the fact that the unit broke just as the warranty expired. Goodluck!

Power on problems

Having to press the power button multiple times before the set comes on is usually caused by low standby voltages in the power supply or bad connections on the printed circuit board. The "D" board is not your problem. Most likely there is bad capacitor in the 9 volt standby supply.
