Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Red light means that the power is getting to the unit however, as its not working which means that the power board should be checked. To start with open the back of the unit and then check the power supply board for any bad (bulged/swollen) capacitors. Power supply board is the board where all the power cords/plugs goes into. After you have checked that also check the main board and if you can use a multimeter to test the components on these boards. However, from your earlier posts it seems to be the main board that is bad and should be replaced. All this should only be done if you have knowledge of internal circuitry of the unit as the 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

No sound, no picture


If by catscan sound you mean a high pitched whine? That usually indicates that the power section has had a part fail. The capacitors on the main board will cause this. You can take it to the shop but get an estimate first as the repair cost can be close to replacement as the prices keep falling. The repair parts are pretty cheap but the labour isn't.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.

Hitachi 32LD8700 - TV won't turn on although has power


The general problem with LCD type TV's is that the power supply fails. They are very sophisticated designs that are difficult to troubleshoot and generally best to just replace the module, but sometimes there is visible damage in some of the electrolytic capacitors (visibly bulged) and high voltage rated parts can be substituted.
Hope Ya Fix It
