If the service shops didn't charge people $200 to fix this I would not post.. But since they do - here's the $8 fix.

If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.

Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.

Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.

This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

We just repaired ours - same problems (did not replacc the 1000uF and 470uF Capacitors in secondary yet as ours were still OK, but the FET was killed by an arcing capacitor across a diode,
See the page we created for this with pictures.

Be careful - High voltage!

Power Supply burned up

Puff of smoke, nasty smell, won't come on even standby led is off. Opened case and found power supply board fried (burn marks). Unable to find anyone within 100 miles willing to fix it - the only two shops that even handle Akai are doing only warranty work because they have so much. Akai has the power supply (MLT-169A) but won't sell it to me because I am not an authorized servicer. MegMeet (manufactures power supply) so far has not answered my emails. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to buy a power supply? (I can easily put it in once I get it).

Won't turn on now

14 month old Akai LCT3201AD wouldn't turn off with remote yesterday until I got with in a few feet of sensor. Changed batteries now the TV won't turn on.

Unplugged it again for 30 minutes, back to green light coming on for a few seconds then back to red. Help, were do I take it? can it be fixed? Live in rural northern Minnesota.

I have just repaired one of these sets for the 2nd time. The problem is definitely the Capacitors on the Main Power Supply Board. If you are handy, you could replace them yourself, or You can send your board to me and I will make the repair for you. Akai initially used what I feel are sub-standard Capacitors on these boards, and I have found that by replacing most of them, this problem can be eliminated. My email address for repairs is [email protected]

Akai TV with Megmeet power supply

I have exactly the same tv and problem you had. I pulled the PS from the tv and checked the fuse. It was OK. So I guess it is the whole board. How did you order the power supply and how much was it?

Thanks.
