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??



    Thanks

    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.

    Everytime I try to turn on the TV the green light comes on and then after

    a few soconds it goes off and the indicator shows red like it was turned off.

    Looking for someone to repair this unit.Having no luck.Help?

    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.

    My LG 55 TV went turned off and wont turn back on. No sound or pic , just a red light indicating is on but nothing. Im two months past my warranty. I called LG for service and the tech called and just said he ordered me a new motherboard and wont cost me anything. Im confused because its not under warranty anymore.

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.

Posted on Mar 29, 2008

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.

At first had picture but no sound. Now have nothing but white screen


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.

Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

The TV won't come on. This began a while ago, but the TV would eventually come on. Now it doesn't do anything. The TV is 3 years old. Any idea how much a repair would run?


Hi
please inspet the circuit board of your Tv...and chek whether any wire is broken which needs to get soldering .Resoldering the circuit will mend your problem or please check whether any fuse is needed to be repalced or not.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Flashing RED Light


Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to blink...got no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.
