The sound works ok but the picture does not. It used to flash on briefly but not anymore. I tried looking inside the tv, but is nearly impossible to take apart. I removed all the screws, but it seems to be held together anyway. I'm open to suggestions!
The problem is not in the tv. It is your power supply. This model had a bad design and it is common for it to start putting out a low voltage. I had this happen as well. The green light does not mean it is working properly. Replace the supply and you should be good to go!

Most likely you have a bad inverter PCB. The inverter lights the backlights so that the LCD portion can be viewed. Shine a bright flash light very close to the front of the set while it is on and look very closely for a picture around where the flash light is. If you can see any little bit of picture it is the inverter. If not the LCD panel is bad. Thanks for using fixya.
I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my
comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3
universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack
universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your
xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad
if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai
was 11676. Take care...
you can get these on ebay i know the power supplys are as cheap as 34 dollars. But the remote you can look for there to but i havent been successful finding one for mine probley cause i dont know what it looks like cause i bought this tv as a demo so they did not have a remote. Hope this helps.
Hi i have the same tv mine did the same thing, it seems it may need a new power supply or there may be a power issue with your tv which is inside of it if buying a power supply does not work then it is the tv and it is expensive to have it fixed. fortanitly mine was just the power cord but yours could be something more. You can buy a power supply off ebay for 34.99. Hope this helps.
I also have the akai PDP4273M1 tv with power and no picture and I looked at the power supply board inside and found 1 of the FMG26S chips blown and I am looking into replacing this to see if that does it and if not do a search for SANKEN PSC10165B M and for approx 170.00 you can get a whole new power supply for it and its easy to put in..
These power supplies are known to go bad. I just replaced mine. You can use a standard 12 volt DC 4 amp with positive tip. Confirm this on the back of your current power supply. You can find a replacement online or at Radio Shack. I happened to have an old power supply from my Comcast modem sitting around that worked fine.
This tv is kind of got a mind of its own the only time you can adjust it on mine is on cable that comes in stereo actually it usually switches by itsself after it reads the broadcasted sound. Hope this helps.
