Akai 4290 power board

My akai 4290 has a power board aa98-00198aa that just went out and I can't find a repair part anywhere. Akai says they don't make that part any more. IEverthing inside is actually made by Samsung. Do you know how I can repair my TV?

    Thanks Jaime, but they have 0 available. I should have mentioned that I had already been to their site and emailed them as well. They responded with "sorry, can't help you". I also went to shopjimmy.com. Same answer there.

Yes, I'm sure the board is bad. I had the TV checked out by a local TV repair shop. I also opened the thing up to see if I could do anything with it and it's obvious that this is the board that has bitten the dust. The correct number for the board is AA98-00188A. I made a typo in the first post.

I HAVE AN AKAI HD TV DVB-T32W. When I started out first time, it autoscans but found no channel. press DTV or ATV, it,says "No channel. need to rescan". But nothing happens, thanks


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

How do I determine if it a power failure or if it is a faulty SC board (TNPA5335)?


That does nost sound normal. I would take a look at the output of the power supply. Look at your electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. Do they look like the top of them has popped up? If so you can get replacement capacitor kits from www.lcdalternatives.com
