Question about Akai LCT3201AD 32 in. LCD Television

5 Answers

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).

    Unfortunately it is an internal board.

  • SteveInVa Oct 07, 2007

    I called and emailed a total of 15 online sources
    and more local shops than I can count. Funny I found
    four sources for the mainboard of the TV but the only
    place I found either an original PS or a replacement
    was Akai - see above.

    Burned out Power supply Akai LCT3201AD.

  • Anonymous May 24, 2008

    TV will not turn on.
    AS of today I found the following:
    The Part # for Power supply for AKAI LCT3201AD is
    1023327-N/A (MLT169A on Board)
    I found the part on
    This solved the problem of finding the power supply.
    Next step is to install it and make the TV turn on again.
    Will update when it does

    I have successfully repaired several dozen AKAI Power supplies from other users right here on as well as I even have an instructable there "AKAI LCT2715 Power Supply Removal" If you could please contact me with some clear pictures of the damaged area of the power supply I could try to let you know if this is something I can repair. Alterantively I could just have you send it to me and I could look at it first hand.

If this is an external PSU then you can buy a budget replacement via e-bay. Just be sure that the voltage is the same but buy one with more current rating otherwise it will run too hot.

    I just googled 'LCT3201AD PSU' there's lots of distributors i.e.

    Good luck!

Not good. Better have that car checked out asap by a qualified electrician since you have a nasty situation there. Smells like a massive short has invaded your car.

Electrical burning smell coming from control panel on westinghouse dishwasher

Had the same issue with a 903sa. Strong burning smell. Continued to run for a while then just died. Opened the control panel (4 screws holding the plastic part at the top of the door on - open the door to access).

Mains feed into the controller was totally fried. Case was all melted. Very nasty. There was nothing obvious on the Board other than a mains resistor that looked like it had been pretty hot at some stage. The three pin mains connector (at least I think it was 3 pins) was just a big, charred bit of goop.

When I woke up this morning, the light is off ofthe Lacie drive and it is not working. I have tried inplugging both to the power and also to the computer. Nothing seems to be happening.

first, check the power supply. If the light on it is of a bright stable green and there are no sound from it, the power supply should be healthy and we will turn toward the drive, else replacing it should fix your issue..
Sometimes, you can smell a "burn" smell near the connectors ar the back if things really went bad and the interface fried. If your drive operates on a smoking environment, you might not notice it as much. Opening the casing and doing a visual exam of the interface to look for cracked chips and black burnt marks would allow us to confirm or not that the interface fried. If it appears that it did fry, verify the hard drives electronic boards for the same signs. If they seem healthy, replacing the interface should get your drive running again.
If there are no sign that it fried, check the power switch to see if the soldering is loose or broken in some areas. Do the same verification with the power connector. If all is good on that side, replacing the power module or the whole interface card should bring power back to the drive.

I had the same problem you hear the click but it stays orange which is standby mode never went to red which is on, I also smelled a bit of a burning electrical smell, so I took off the back case and watched the main board sparking and smoking right in front of me, my power supply was fine, be careful before you order a new one. The trouble with mine is that's it's about 99.9% impossible to find a part for it.

Intel D865PERLL Motherboard will not power up

Hi nkda2000, this is as close as I could find for power schematics. Intel D865PERL

(There is no Intel D865PERLL board). Sure it's a typo. Have done searches for D865PERLL & found it (Not on Intle's web site) but when looking at the specs it's listed as D865PERL. (One L ) not two.

I hope the Technical Product Specification pdf can help you check the power on the motherboard.

TV wont power on, clicking noise and flashing standby led

Sounds pretty bad to me, I had a computer monitor that did a similar thing when plugged in after blowing, it's not a good thing. I didn't even bother to mess with it. You may have to replace the whole power board or at least have a whole handful of pieces to re-solder. It most likely isn't worth it unless your other tv's are under 30" and you don't have a lot of money ;)

When a power supply goes out the way yours did, it's going to fry the MB 99% of the time. So you're going to need a new MB. It's possible that you CPU is ok, but that could also go too. I would replace the MB first, then the CPU if that doesn't work.
