Question about Akai LCT3285TA 32 in. LCD Television

Comment by Jaime867, posted on Aug 13, 2008

With reference to your response below on 8/13/08 on..."The reference designators for the defective capacitors are EC18, EC19 and EC20 (1000uF/16V) and EC12, EC15 (220uF/25V)." Amazon.com sells both capacitors, but they also sell the high temp ones for both as well. They're titled on Amazon.com as such, Radial Mini Electrolytic and High Temp Radial. Both are made by Xicon. Could you advise please on which one,either the Radial or the High Temp, Thanks.

    Thanks Jaime. I'll let you know the results after the capacitors are installed.

    With regards to my post on 8/17/08 on my Akai LCT3285TA, powering off after 30-45 minutes, I went ahead and soldered the required capacitors, per Jaime's suggestion. I did and I goofed on one of the capacitors and ended up sending the power supply board to Jaime. He cleaned up my soldering mess and corrected the one capacitor that was soldered in wrong. My Akai TV now stays on. The resolution was well worth the wait.

There are two types of capacitors, the radial and axial leads. The ones you need are radial and they should be high temperature, so when you order them just say that you need the radial type and high temperature.
Click here to see the radial type. For the axial type click here.

If you are looking for top design firms, you must look for some qualities that the company has. 1) Experience.

I WANT TO NO IS PANASONIC BETTER THEN SONY


As far as LCD TV's,they are about equivelant.When looking for an LCD TV,a couple of things you want to look for is a dynamic contrast ratio of between 50,000:1 and 150,000:1 and also 1080p.Any contrast ratio above is unnecessary and any ratio below will not be as good of a picture,but not by much.Some of the better brands are LG,Samsung,Vizio,Sony,and Panasonic.If you start looking at the 'off brands' because of a lower price,it is not worth it.Also,NEVER buy a floor model.For ANY discount they give you for one,it is not even close to being worth the savings because you have no idea what the TV has already endured.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

LCT2701TD t.v. will not turn on. There is only a flashing red light.


Most failures on this LCD are due to defective capacitors in the power supply board.
The defective capacitors are 1000uF/16v, the reference designators are EC18, EC19 & EC20 and since the light is flashing. Z3 a 27v 1w zener diode might be shorted and two 10 ohms surface mount resistors might also be defective.
If you are fixing it yourself, you can use 1000uF/25v or 35v as long they fit in the space provided by design. Radio shack should carry the capacitors and possibly the zener diode but not the 10 ohms surface mount resistors.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

1080p bush 42 inch tv only displaying 1366x768


1080p refers to the resolution you get when watching television. When you're using the TV as a computer monitor a different resolution scale applies. In other words, television resolution and computer resolution are measured differently.

Cracked glass, no picture


G'Day!

If your TV is an LCD or plasma, you will have to replace the whole thing. The screen of an LCD is called the panel and it actually costs more than what you paid for the TV retail. This is why when a panel develops a defect, 90% of the manufacturers out there will replace the TV instead of repairing it.

If you have a rear projection or DLP, you can contact the manufacturer regarding the replacement costs of the screen. Be prepared though. . . .the cost will not be slight.

PROBLEMS AS DESCRIPTION BELOW


Ajkill, a FixYa.com repairman, was the one who e-mailed my solution. He told me to go to the top buttons of the tv, the Volume (-) & Channel (-) buttons and press them simultaneous. I did this, not really knowing what to expect. I then got a menu. I scrolled down and across to select the tv setup I wanted, then the factory mode finally disappeared. The tv then started working with my remote control again. Thanks to Ajkill and the Good Lord.

P.S. I want to edit the sentence above, in green, where its stating: "It's always turned back on when turned off". I don't remember typing this. I meant to say there, that the tv turns itself back on, some times, when I turn it off. If anyone out has a solution fix for this, then, please let me know.
Thank you,

I would suggest to check the standby voltages as well. If the 5 volts are not present you will not get video or the TV will not operate properly.
