Question about Akai CTS2550 25" TV

2 Answers

TV Akai CT29X4AV

Since shifting Akai 29" colour TV into a cupboard it suddenly switches itself off and red sensor light flickers can't switch on again for an hour or so. Last week used the remote to switch on and off and behaved all week until today when it decided to switch off again. Managed to get it back on 3 hours later and is still going some 5 hours later. Very strange any suggestions have put new batteries in remote but problem seems to be in main switch (I think).Can't understand how it can suddenly switch itself off. Another TV in Lounge is OK and doesn't switch off so can't be aerial problem. Would be grateful for any advice.

    Took it out of cupboard checked all plugs everything ok going well put back in cupboard, went for several hours then switched off again.
    Got it going after couple of hours and still going. Maybe it doesn't like the cupboard !!
    Keeping fingers crossed it will stay on. Puss

    It is fixed husband by-passed standby switch and put new switch. Now just switch on or off and don't worry about standby, works perfectly.

Have tried checking if the Power Plug is fitting tightly in the Power socket? Could be that it is loose?

sounds lick you may have a dry joint in the powers or line o/p stage.

as a rare fault it could be the crt with an intermittant internal s/c. but you would notice the colour was tinted either red, green, or blue in the dark areas of the pic.

TV switch light flickers 11 times but no function


Hopefully it is only a board component that needs replacing and your dry joints that need re-doing. I would advise that you take it to a television repair shop as this type of repair can be very complex (replacing resistors and capacitors just to name a few).

TV suddenly shut off, blinking red light in power button


The TV's power supply capacitors probably went bad.

Check with a mobile tv repair co. to see if it is worth fixing.
