Question about Akai LCT2060 Television
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 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.
