My wife had the above subject TV in one of her rental units. While the tenant was watching it the screen went black. She replaced it with a different model and brought the AKAI home. I examining it, I found the sound works (sounds great), the DVD player works but the display screen is black. Upon closer examination I can see a slight image on the sceen if the light is right and at the right angle.
Could it be the back lights? By replacing them could that fix the problem or is there other conditions that could exist for this problem? I have checked web sources and one site advertised the part costing around $100.00 Can the back lights be repaired or purchased cheaper etc. I don't wish to pour a great deal of money into this unit when a new set can be purchase for around $200.00
I am not an electronic tech but have built several kits over the last 30 years but weak experience in dianostic trobleshooting and testing.

Re: AKAI 20" TV w/ DVD Player Model # CFTD2052
Your problem could be a backlight problem. But the bulbs may not be the source of your problem, as both and sometimes 3 or 4 bulbs, depending on the set will not all go out at once. You most likely have an inverter problem with your set, that is the circuit that powers the backlights. Good Luck

You will have to remove the DVD player assembly and if you are lucky, you may be able to use a paper clip as a pin the push out the disks, just like you do with CD rom on your PC, but with two disks stuck inside the DVD player may have to be disassembled to get the disks out, estimate shop rate around $100.
i think your unit suffered what we call a surge current.it happens when sudden power out and on of the electricity.a large amount of current is flowing instantly when the power came back,like waves.so units which permanently plugged-in suffers.especially the tv etc.so if you can open your unit and check for blown-out fuse or any related incident you can find in your unit.its best to have a tech's help for that.i'm sure there is a defective part/parts in your unit.
Hmmm,sounds like you may have damaged the remote or maybe the batteries have run down where you where laying on it,try a fresh set of batteries in the remote or failing that try adjusting the tv manually by getting a chair,standing on it and pressing the buttons on the tv,also try another feed from another source just to make sure it is not the sattelite at fault.
