We need to verify if the problem is in the preamp or poweramp sections. Hook up the powered PC speakers to the AUDIO Line out RCA jacks and verify that sound is OK there, if it is OK, The problem will be in the power amp sections that drive the speakers. If it sounds bad at the RCA jacks, the problem will be in the sound processor board which mean the main board will have to be replaced, same if the power amp is bad.

You can fix this TV very easily and inexpensively if you know how to use a soldering iron and aren't afraid of some intricate work....

It is your power supply Capactors that are blown...Remove the back of the tv and look at the power supply and look for the round capacitors that have blown (see the non-flat tops usually w/discoloration).....Usually it is 3 of the 1000uf 16v capacitors that need to be upgraded....(Shown in the first picture below)

Just pull use a soldering iron and remove the leaking/blown ones and replace with higher voltage ones....I used Panasonic ECA-1EHG102 25V 1000uf ones from Digi-Key (Digi-Key p/n P5544-ND)....

If it is the two larger ones that are leaking/blown (1000uf 35V as seen below one bulging and one blown/leaking) replace those with higher quality Panasonic ECA-1VHG102 ones as well (Digi-Key p/n P5555-ND)...Digi-Key is at www.digikey.com and they ship fast and offer great prices...

You need to go to TV channel scanning screen menu and select 'CABLE' and rescan it.

look for the SOURCE button

Does the TV function? I do not think so. This indicates that the power is reaching the power supply unit and thats all. It is not going any further. Your PSU seems to be defective. Take it to the Akai Service Center and have it replaced/rectified. Not a major defect.

See black light at the back.
If no back light, problem most likely come from power supply.
If has back light, need tech to check and figure out exact problem.

The failure with your LCD might be due to defective capacitors in the power supply. These parts become defective due to excessive heat and fail prematurely If you are able to DIY, you can check the picture to see how defective capacitors look like.901ae86.jpg

hello. I have a couple of recommendations for you. First, you may be able to find another TV on craigs list, or a local ad. If that fails, you could go to a site in the states that carries many Akai parts called www.shopjimmy.com either way, good luck with it.

Hi,
Please unplug/ replug connectors on power supply board and back light inverter boards at sides of TV.
LCD Controller board is also needs your attention, replug its connectors (be careful while handling flexible wires coming from LCD Panel) This board is located at top center of lcd panel rear side.
And if problem still unsolved, I would replace Back Light Master Inverter board because TV has 2 boards, one is master and second is Slave. Both are available in Shop Jimmy. Please click above links to have price info.
Thanks.

Capacitors come in all shapes and sizes from microscopic to as large as a small bottle. It depends on its use. It must be replaced with an exact match. Some common ones look like batteries with leads on each end or both on one end. They can hold a charge for weeks or longer. I removed one from a defective camera flash just for fun and was given a sharp jolt for my trouble. If you suspect a bad one have the device repaired by a professional. Good Luck

I very highly doubt that is merely a power supply problem,I would suspect that it is a small signal board (aka scaler board) or at the very least,have the inverter boards checked

Akai LCT2715 27... | Answered on Jul 16, 2009


Most likely a power supply problem.

Akai LCT2715 27... | Answered on Jul 15, 2009


If the TV fails to power ON, in about 90% of the time is due to a power supply failure. If you intend to DIY, I would suggest to visually inspect the capacitors in the power supply. Replacing them should correct the failure with the TV.

Akai LCT2715 27... | Answered on Jul 11, 2009


You most likely have low voltage power trouble. 5v line. This line feed the microprocessor. The power supply must be repaired or replaced.

Hi,
Akai is poor brand for after sale service and parts are really hard to get.
Luckily Shop Jimmy has main board, back light inverter board and power supply board in stock for Akai LCT2715 model
In your TV symptom of no-blue color shows problem with LCD controller board and current problem of blinking yellow light shows some thing wrong with back light inverter board.
Click Shop Jimmy to see circuit boards image and price info that will help you to decide repair it or not.
Thanks.
