Your right there is no aerial connection to your tv I think that you should provide a cable converter with audio video out that is the only solution i think. Good day and best regards.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.

Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.

Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.

This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Check to see what input setting the tv is on. It could still be looking for a signal from the pc input connection and no pc is hooked up thus getting no signal. Have the device you are trying to display on the tv connected and turned on and cycle through the inputs on the tv until you get a signal.

Hello Lunhoo,
Your TV should still be in warranty. If so, yes you should take it in for repair. Even if it's not in Warranty, Akai may have a special warranty extension for your TV. Check it out.
Good luck.

Could be time for a replacement power board, if they are still available.

It's either a faulty power board, or a faulty switch board or an overheating issue and the set is going into protection mode. You need a television engineer to diagnose and fix https://www.fixya.com/support/r29790007-repairing_own_television ..

The applicable code(s) would be in the remote control, if it is compatible.

EHT or Extra High Tension is the power supplied to the final anode of the cathode ray tube. The EHT is traditionally generated by the line transformer from the flyback pulse of the line oscillator/amplifier. The generated high frequency high voltage current was from the outset rectified by a thermionic diode (eg. EY51, EY86) but by the late 1960s/early 1970s technology brought high voltage diodes and semiconductors rapidly replaced the old technology and the output from the line transformer then typically fed the anode via a semiconductor voltage doubler. The rectified EHT was originally smoothed by a high voltage oil-filled capacitor but that was soon deleted in favour of spraying the outside of the CRT with a metallic paint and grounding it. This became the high voltage smoothing capacitor with the glass of the CRT being the dielectric and the final anode the positive pole...

Check if the channel is off-the-air due to an issue at the transmitter. After a severe storms, some local stations lost their transmitter because the tower fell. More often, the transmitter hardware can fail. One station repeater near me had an interesting period where it didn't get the incoming signal from the primary transmitter. Check that your antenna hasn't shifted to point away from the transmitter. Reposition the antenna, if needed. If you have an amplifier on your antenna, check if that has been damaged. If it has been damaged, replace it. My household found that the antenna/splitter became a filter for one VHF channel when damaged by a lightning strike. The check was to connect the antenna to one TV without the amplifier. The other common issue is interference. Has there been construction in your area that added a large building between you and the transmitter? I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

First try checking the "auto off" function. I am not familiar with Akai TVs so this advice is very basic. Use the 'Menu' button and find Settings, (It might also be listed as Set Up). Go into this section of the settings. There should be a feature listed as 'Time' or 'Timer'. Set this to Off. Your other option, if it is a brand new TV is to contact the store you bought it from and ask their advice.

Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.
