-What is the model number for the television? (this can be found on the back of the unit)
-How old is the unit?

Please give me this information and I will be happy to assist you further.
Well heres the bad news......
You have either a bad power supply or main board, one of the two would need to be replaced. I looked them up to see what we were going to be looking at and found that both parts are not available. Meaning there is no way to repair the set because AKAI didn't make the spare parts for it.
I am sorry to give you this answer because I know you were hoping for a quick fix or easy answer but unfortunately the answers don't come much worse than this. I am sorry, if you have any more questions or would like more information please let me know, I am here to help!
If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!

I normally have solutions for problems as well but unfortunately the boards in your set are no longer available. However I did just think of one thing....Do you know how to solder?
There might be couple of bad capacitors in the power supply causing this problem that is about our only hope at this point. If you can take the back off the set and take a picture of the boards inside and post it to me I will look at the caps and see if any are bad. We might get lucky and have a fix yet.

Please let me know!
You will want to lay it down on its face on a soft surface (a bed is great) If it is on a stand, take the stand off by removing the screws near the bottom middle of the screen holding it on. Then take all the screws out of the back (most are around the edges) until it comes off. Once the back is off be careful you dont want to touch anything if you don't know what you are doing!
Let me know if you are having any problems, if you get stuck and cannot describe the problem you are having take a picture so I can see as well.
Let me know!
