It might not be the same issue, but we had a blue square in the upper left hand corner of our hanspree. To fix it, either press the button headed 'pip' or go into menu, down to calibration and then uncheck the box titled 'pip' there. I hope this sorta yours as it did ours.
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?
In about 95% of the time when the TV is having a hard time turning ON or turns OFF by itself or needs to be unplug to make it work again; those are symptoms of dying or defective power supplies. I repair these power supplies, if you need further info write to firstname.lastname@example.org
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]
I have had on order since December 2007 the Akai replacement remote #WIR3500001-EQ01 the Akai TV/DVD combo model #CFTD2011. I called each month for 5 months, being told each time that it was on backorder. A few days ago, I received a letter in the mail stating that this remote is no longer made and is not available.
I too have tried universal remotes without any luck. If anyone has a resolution, it would be greatly appreciated.
