Question about Akai LCT3201TD 32 in. LCD Television
I have an Akai 27" Wide-Screen LCD/TV/DVD Combo LCT2701AD and all of a sudden the sensor light in the remote does not connect with the sensor light in the TV. I have to manually turn on the Standby button on the TV and some times the sensors stays green and other times the senor response is very short and will turn red again and no TV. I changed the batteries in the remote, I changed plug-ins for the TV rechecked all connections were connected and still no communication with the remote. Does anyone know what I mean and what the problem means>? Thankyou
Some 1000uf electrolytic capacitors have failed on the power supply board (3x 16v & 2x 35v radial). You can get them at Radio Shack or your favorite parts house.
They are easy enough to replace if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not, bring the tv to a repair shop & tell them that you want the capacitors replaced on the power supply. It shouldn't be too expensive.
To get to the power supply, unplug the set from everything including power. Put the set face down on something soft that won't damage the screen. Remove all the screws from the rear cover, they have arrows pointing to them. When you get to the dvd player, care will be needed to get the cover off.
The power supply board is on the upper right side of the chassis and is not covered by anything. Look for the capacitors that are "bulging" on the top. These will need to be replaced. Good ones look flat on top.
Remove the bad capacitors noting there orientation (they are polarized). The "negitive" side will have a "band" printed on the capacitor. Go get the new ones & replace them carefully aligning the polarities correctly. Reassemble the case & you should be done.
Good luck. al
