I have a 32" HD AKAI TV that keeps turning itself off
If the service shops didn't charge people $200 to fix this I would not post.. But since they do - here's the $8 fix.
If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v
electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the
power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They
are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located
between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c
degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will
work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.
Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from
partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local
radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last
Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.
This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

Bout a post you made
on the power supply board if it has capacitors that are raised in the center and not flat then that is you problem.this can be an issue with any model flat screen tv. 80% of the time this is what's wrong.same for computer monitors also.

Hi, it seems your TV requires technical service, it's seems a internal power supply issue but it should be checked. You can also check if the ventilation holes are not obstructed or if it has correct ventilation to avoid overheating.
