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.

Tv wont turn on


does the light stay or blinking and how about the screen display totally black or a white screen. you can see in a dark room if their is a white screen. if totally black screen then with sound the cause is could be bad inverter board or screen back light. if a white screen it was the t-con board not working good.

Vizio lcd flatpanel tv with dark background


If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.

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.

Backlighting issues on tv set (I think). Screen goes extremely dark after about 30 min. of viewing. Does not return to orginial brightness unless unit is left off for a long period of time


Lcd tv sets are lit by small glass florescent tubes called cold cathodes and, are powered by: ballasts called inverters... these go out just like your office florescent lighting the parts can be purchased online from electronic parts houses and, are easily replaced

Black parts of screen looks light light is shining on it


Your LCD TV uses backlights and they can be slightly visible when viewing a letterbox movie.  However, if the light is really bleeding into the black, there could be a problem, but mosty this is common.

Dark screen


if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.

If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.
