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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
