Question about Akai LCT2060 Television

1 Answer

Really dark (not usable) screen

After working initially, the screen on this LCD now seems totally black. On very close view, there is barely some output on screen, but very dark. I've used the cable in, as well as composite inputs. Sound is fine, but video is useless. Any ideas?

The backplane power supply, and or the backplane lamps are probably dead. In some models these parts are replaceable. In most of the models, the backplane lamps are an integral part of the screen unit, and cannot be replaced without changing the complete screen unit.

Call the manufacture tech support to find out where you can send the set for a proper service estimate.

My lightning got really dark and i can barely see anything,i have to put the frame really up close to see a little bit.im not sure why it got like that.need help


LCD screens have a backlight. When the backlight starts to dim it will eventually completely fail, causing the image to be really dark, barely viewable. You will need to replace the LCD screen, or replace the entire unit.

Good day!
LCD screens have very thin fluorescent light tubes. if you can barely make out an image its most likely that the Power inverter board that powers the lights is damaged.

Screen went almost completely dark, can barely see at all.


I had a similar problem with an HP DV2000 notebook computer. Here's the solution for the HP model DV2040TX: Problem identified and FIXED. Not the screen, not the screen power supply. The problem was the micro-switch within the right-hand-side screen hinge. This switch turns off the screen when you close the lid of the notebook - probably to prevent overheating. The switch had failed mechanically (technical term: "fallen to bits"). As a low-cost fix, I have unscrewed the main casing including the screws inside the battery compartment, removed the silver panel covering the speakers, flicked the switch "ON" using a jewellers' screwdriver, and removed the small metal tongue that is operated by a cam on the hinge. Thus, the switch is PERMANENTLY ON. Computer operates normally, shuts down normally using Windows. Just need to be aware not to close the lid without shutting down the computer beforehand. Hope this helps you. All the best, OzKluger

This is a hardware failure of the LCD back-light or a loose connection which requires partial disassembly to verify. Most likely it will require an LCD replacement. If you have an external monitor you can connect it to the video output so that you can see.
