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).
I had a power supply issue with my TV too. I was able to repair it. But, during my research I cam across a store which does sale the power supply. The cost is $150 and can be purchase at fox international. Though it it is not listed on the online e-store, you can call and give them your TV model and let them know you are looking for a power supply board The web site is www.fox-international.com. Then click on the e-store link or call 1-800-321-6993.
I have fixed this problem before and would be willing to help anyone repair their board. You must be able to remove the board from your TV and ship it to me for repair. If interested, send me an email at [email protected] I charge $50

Ur power supply board,have burn capacitors,check for puff up caps,know how to solder?If not,no puff up caps,change the whole power supply board it somethings burning not notice, able to see in the power supply board.
Power Supply never burn fuse these day,they have so many transistors,ics,capacitors,resistors so small any thing could be burn,never find out almost impossible.The power supply board is dead,must replaced the whole board.
To see if power supply works unplug the psu from the motherboard and drives then plug the power cord into psu and wall the fan should come on letting you know that it works.
you can also get a multimeter and check each individual connector on the 20/24 pin connector to motherboard. check the psu docs for the correct voltages to each pin
If you smelled smoke then chances are that something may have gotten toasted. remove all expansion cards and try to turn on computer if nothing happens then the motherboard may have gotten toasted. Check the motherboard and expansion cards along with memory for shorts and burn spots.
It sounds like your motherboard has also fried. Whatever caused your power supply to burn up caused excessive voltage to go to your motherboard, and it will need to be replaced. There is a possibility that other things connected to your motherboard also fried such as the memory or cpu but you won't be able to determine that unless you replace the motherboard. In my professional opinion, it would be more cost effective to get a new computer at this point. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya, since it answered your question; even if the news isn't very good. Thanks!
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.
Well the say never answer a question with a question, so i will simply post 2 answers.
1. If you built the PC yourself, you may need to look at power requirements for this particular motherboard and perhaps transplant the board into a case with a larger power supply. (ie: 300, 350 watt power supply or better )
2. If this is an older PC and someone else built it for you, you may need to consider that power supply units do burn out in time and may need to be replaced.
The power LED simply means there is power coming to the light itself, but may not be enough to sustain an entire motherboard and components etc. This to me sounds very much like either the power supply is too small or burned out.
