I'm working on one now. So far, I've found two capacitors on the power supply board bad, both 1000uf/16V 105 degree caps location EC9 area. Still have mild interference on the screen which seems to change with the type of video being displayed.. Will look for C301 next, is it on the signal board?
Went to a cheap discount shop called reject shop and bought a i DIGITAL universal remote control, RM-810 model for $8 AUD ,put in code 1020 listed for AKIA and it worked. Didnt even think of looking in a cheapo shop for one
My tv is almost a year old also. Having the same problem as others with the squares. Sam's Club saids it's out of their hands. You paid that much for a tv somebody should be responsible for their workmenship lasting longer than a year.
I had the exact same problem already and my LCD is less than 8mo old. One of the techs from AKAI told me that its a known problem and many tv's were coming back "unserviceable". They now have a "supposed" fix for the problem. I only hope it really works and its not just a "carry-over" until the warranty ends. I am beginning to think its a quality issue and the units may just be defective. Thismay be thier way of doing a quick-fix vs. recalling all those tv's. This is what he gave me to as a solution to give the serviceman when he comes to fix the LCD.
AKAI model LCT42Z6TM: If there is no image or a badly distorted image with horizontalstatic lines, usually with four boxes in all four corners of the screen, there is a possible fix for this. There are four capacitors on the main board that have been identified as the primary cause of this symptom. Replace the capacitors at location numbers C280, C302, C320, C323 - 100UF 35 VOLTS [dxh]
