Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Power Shuts off after 30-45 minutes

I replaced with a power supply purchased at Best Buy Parts Search. Unfortunately, it produced the same symptom, and that is the LCD TV will shut off after power will shut off after 30 minutes or less this time around. I question the ps board as the person at the other end said the ps board that I'm getting works with other Akai models. In any case, the new ps board did not change anything.

Is it possible for the main board (or mother board) to go defective somewhere. Do you know where I can purchase the parts for the Akai LCT3285A. Appreciate your response. Thanks.

I will say that the part that you bought could have been removed from another LCD and it might not be working properly due to components that become defective when they overheat.
It looks like there are not service parts or they are difficult to find.
Most power supplies I've repaired have components that failed after about 1500 hours of use.
The only way to get the LCD working is to repair the power supply to the component level instead of swapping it.
In about 95% of the time the power board is defective.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Samsung TV...Turn on tv, it operates for maybe a minute, then shuts itself off and has a consistant clicking pattern, like a relay switch. Sometimes turns itself back on


Not knowing the specific model for your Samsung TV and how old it is, I can only offer this possibility because I've encountered what sounds like the same problem. Certain models of Samsung HDTVs around 3-4 years back have a design problem with their power supplies - they put in the wrong size capacitors (aka "Caps"). After a few years, the capacitors fail, and the power supply also fails. I think it's possible to replace individual capacitors, but most likely you will have to replace the power supply. Unfortunately if it's out of warranty, it will cost several hundred dollars, especially for a home / onsite visit. There is a visible symptom - from 2-6 capacitors on the power supply board will bulge out, as shown in this pic:digizen.jpg
You might try calling Samsung customer service and tell them you are aware of problems with their power supply design, and try to get them to repair the TV for free, especially if you are just out of warranty.

My Samsung T5271F is taking about 5 minutes to turn on. The tv just makes a clicking sound and the power light keeps flashing until it finally turns on.


You have failing capacitors on the power supply board. This is a very common issue with these and others. If you know how to test capacitors and solder its not that tough to repair. Or you can just replace the power supply board which is part number BN44-00184A and runs around $100. You can purchase the board at many places on line. Just do a search in Google with the part number,,,,Good luck

My rca L26WD26D does not power on - using the remote or the direct power button brings about the same results. The green light comes on and clicking is heard, then the red light comes on. This cycle is...


The most common failures with LCD/ DVD combos is a failure in the DVD transport mechanism. The DVD transport mechanism is an easily replaced subassembly, that can be purchased for less than $200 in most cases. The best bet is t replace this mechanism ensuring that you purchase it from a vendor who will purchase it back if it dos not fix the problem for some reason.

In the event that the DVD player replacement does not solve the problem, the second most common problem is LCD's is the power supply module. Assuming that you do not want to have a shop repair this unit, search for a power supply module online and replace it yourself, ensuring you can return it if it doesn't resolve the problem.

There are other things that cause that symptom on LCD tvs that are beyond the scope of this discussion.
