    Rylee, I took the plug off from the dc adapter for the akai and plugged into another high def tv I have and it turns on that set. Apparently, the adapter box going to the Akai is goofy itself or it's like you say it's within the internal board itself that may require (removal/exchange of parts, etc.) something be done with it! I'm not at that level to do my own soldering nor do I have a tester or other electronic meters or soldering equipment to do work I once did 40 years ago with simple military radioes.



    How likelt is the Starmen AC adapter the likely cause of the problem and is there a way to check this out myself? thanks. Kia ~

    How likely is it that the Akai's external Starmen adapter itself is the actual cause of the tv light nor set from coming on at all? I think needing to open the set may possibly be the "eventual problem" but, is there a way to 'pre-check the parts (i.e. Starmen adapter) bring power to the Akai LCT2060 first before opening up the back panel or needing to take it out to the repair shop since I can't do w/o the needed tester or equipment? Tnx. Kia ~

    Taran,



    I like your explanation and follow it readily. I wish I had the multimeter to check but, I will now open the back of the unit and look for the "obvious stuff you mentioned." Thanks! And yest, if need be I will buy me the soldering gun, solder, caps and "what nots" (i.e., bulging stuff) if need be have do the replacements myself. I did this kind of work over 45 years ago for the army signal school in GA. So, it's something you've somehow encouraged me to pursue now! I am multi-disabled a veteran in a wheelchair, diapered and never go anywheres except to the docs or grocery stuff. Now, I have a real good reason to "start being more practical in that I can try to re"participate" in something I once taught at Fort Gordon US ARMY Signal school: Field Radio Repair!

    I let you know how it goes! You've given me the both the inspiration and words of counsel that I can still do "tons for myself" rather than whinning or bs'ng myself!



    Be well & May the World's best be with you always! Much Aloha ~ Kia!

    Thanks to you Taran! I'll try as you suggested. I sincerely would like to fix it! Didn't realize that Akai LCT2060 had this power supply board problem which I bought from Costco & didn't take out of the box for more than 2 years because I was undergoing cancer treatment. Still doing it! tnx again! Be Well ~ Aloha and will keep you posted on my progress! Respectfully, Kia ~

Hi,

I would like to Share Few Details with you. This is a Common Problem with most of the TV's. Akai is Popular for it's Power Supply Problems. In my whole experience, i hardly seen a Cord being at Fault. If the Cord is Damaged / Cut / have signs of Damage, then it is worth ordering a Cord.

If you have a Multimeter, you could do a Continuity Test.If the electrical outlet has power and your power cord passes the continuity test, then the fan is dead and the power supply must be Replaced / Repaired.

.According to me it is a power supply problem which is quite common part as far as failures are concerned. IF you TV is under warranty then you can get it checked and replace for free probably.

This is basically due to lack of sufficient power. This is basically due to capacitor failures or cold solder problems. You probably have lose solders or broken solders due to the move.

You need to Open the TV. Make sure it would be Unplugged. You need to Take all the Precautions. Locate the Power Supply Board. Remove the Connectors and Pull out the Board. Once you Pull out the Board, with the Help of Magnifying Glass, locate Cold Solder Joint. If Everything is OK, then you would Locate Bulged / Leaked / Swelled Caps. They would have Ammonia kind of Odor. You need to De-Solder them. You could take the same to Radio Shack / Fry's / Order Online. Once you get the New Caps, Solder them and it is all set.You also need to Check Fuses around that.

If the Problem Still Persists, get back to me so that we would Troubleshoot other Components.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    Let me know the Update.I am still in Discussion with Other Experts. Once you would Open the TV, do check the Fuse and the Caps. If those are Fine, then we need to use Multimeter to Check the Power entering in and out of Power Supply Board, Power Cord and Different Components which could Cause this. My First Reaction would be Bad Caps.

    Check and then let me know, so that we could Proceed further.

    I would be more than Happy to Assist you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is with the power board or the main board and we’ll need to check few things. When you open the unit up; take a look at the power board-the board where the power cords/plugs goes into. You might see some filter capacitors a little bulged up in the top-If this is the case-this is your defective part(you can try to replace them-but some soldering equipment is needed). If not, then probably the main board has gone bad. This is the other board-where all the inputs are going into. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components. Please note that the TV components consists high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

AKAI LCT 2060 was working well as a TV. Just hooked it up to my PC and the message on screen reads "No Signal" Checked monitor cable and it's good. checked old monitor and it works well. Why...


The display settings on your computer need to be turned down. Set it to 800x600 and move up from there, if the resolution is too high - the TV won't display it.
