Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television
I have just repaired one of these sets for the 2nd time. The problem is definitely the Capacitors on the Main Power Supply Board. If you are handy, you could replace them yourself, or You can send your board to me and I will make the repair for you. Akai initially used what I feel are sub-standard Capacitors on these boards, and I have found that by replacing most of them, this problem can be eliminated. My email address for repairs is Lakers4life42@yahoo.com

I have TWO AKAI LCT3201AD 32" flat screens televisions that went bad within two weeks of each other due to the power supply capacitors. What good is a television that produces no picture? Did they go bad because they were programmed to go bad, or because they are just junk that barely last past the warranty. Does it matter? I couldn't find any repair information that gave me confidence that these AKAI products were even worth fixing once a year. If anything, AKAI is now engraved in my mind as a product brand I want nothing more to do with. You get what you pay for at Best Buy, and it's my advice that quality matters more that price with electronic products.

I did finally reach an office to get my TV repaired where I won it from and they fixed it, the reason they told me it didn't work was because of the remote control and replaced it and it works. It didn't make sense to me but that is all I got.

I think the best option is to throw the LCT3201AD in the garbage can and tell all your friends not too buy any more AKAI Products.
I have read allot of posts on AKAI products that have failed an they all come down to one thing. They have had the television for just over the warranty and now it fails. If you have it repaired it will more than likely do the same thing in about another year. Go out and buy yourself a real LCD Television you will save money.

I know the service tech who fixed my tv power supply. his email is firstname.lastname@example.org but he stays in toronto, canada. only thing is you have to pull the power supply out and mail it to him.

Yes - - you need to have the power supply repaired. There are three or fiur caps in that unit that fail due to heat. In my opinion I think they were designed a little under rated as well. The SMPS is a plug and play repair - you just need to remove it and send it in for repair..

Hi. What is the part no. for this power supply and its approximate cost? Cost will have a lot to do with whether to repair it or not, I would think.
