Question about Akai LCT3285TA 32 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

I have a AKAI 32" LDC flatscreen with a built in DVD player and the other night while watching a show the screen went black and had a few verticle pinstripe lines going through it. I tried turning it off and on a couple times but the screen is still black. Do you have any remedies to fix this?

    Also the sounds still works so does this mean the whole tv is bad or just the screen.

It could very likely be a bad power supply best thing to do is take the back of the tv and inspect any and all capacitors. That is a very common fault in these lcd tv's and the first place to start. If you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

This set has a common problem w/ capacitors going bad on the power supply board. I've replaced bad caps in almost every brand for no picture or dead set. I always start by taking a look at all of the boards, after I get the back off, and take a quick look at all of the electrolytic capacitors to see if any are bulged or mushroomed on top. Any that are should be replaced.

The thing that worries me about your set is that you said it had the vertical lines which could be a bad panel(screen). If it is the panel it wouldn't be worth fixing. Normally the set will remain lit when this happens, and it will have lines that overlap parts of the picture.

If it has bad caps, a repair shop would probably charge $100 - $150 to fix it. If it needs a panel it would probably cost as much as a new set..

    I forgot to include that the sound still works so would your suggestion still remain to check the board inside? I will do this tonight and get back to you.

    Thank you.

DVD player not working, only used a few times AKAI lct32z4adp 32"lcd tv with built-in dvd player

Unfortunately they are a real bare to fix. Unless its a jammed disc it is probably a defective transport. If it is under warranty have it repaired otherwise get an external DVD player.

Sorry I don't know of any easy fix for the integrated units.

It may a built-up of dust.

My durabrand pdv 709 dvd player's screen went black and wont come

It sounds like you have a circuit overloading. But, is this one of the Durabrand models that have been recalled by Durabrand/Wal-Mart? They recalled most or all DVD players built since 2006 because they have a tendency to overheat and catch fire. Look into it by calling your local Wal-Mart.

Your problem could be a backlight problem. But the bulbs may not be the source of your problem, as both and sometimes 3 or 4 bulbs, depending on the set will not all go out at once. You most likely have an inverter problem with your set, that is the circuit that powers the backlights. Good Luck
