Akai Television - With no repair man in site!
I worked for Akai tech support when it was still available over the phone. Now, they only have a website. The reason no one wants to repair the set is they have no idea how to obtain parts. During the end of their production run, Akai had a lot of problems with availability of replacement parts. Parts for the repair of your set are likely available from the company that distributed the TVs here in the U.S., however, the total cost of repair will cost you nearly or more than a new LCD. There is a circuirt board inside your TV that needs to be replaced. The cost of the part with labor added will bring the billl to at least $300. At walmart.com they have a 42" Viore selling for $578. They have a 32" Viore with DVD attached for $398, and a 32" 1080p for $349. There are other brands and selections for higher prices and other Viores as well, but I think you get the point. Do you want to spend a few hundred dollars repairing a TV that is out of warranty when the same amount of money will practically put you into a new set? If you decide you want to repair the one you have anyway, please post a comment with the model of the TV you have and I will help you obtain the part needed to complete the repair.
