Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Picture washed out, can't get it right

My Akai LCT2715 27" LCD had some sort of power supply problem, which caused the picture to gradually darken over the course of some weeks. While it was doing that, I coped by adjusting the brightness, contrast, and other picture settings until it just got too bad. I had the power supply problem fixed, but now I can't restore the picture. Whites seem really washed out, mainly, but adjusting contrast and brightness numbers don't so much fix the problem.

Are there default / factory values for picture settings? Can someone who likes their picture tell me what their values are for:

Contrast
Brightness
Back Light
Saturation
Hue
Sharpness
Color Temperature

Thanks very much.

Akai LCD tv model LCT3285TA will not respond to remote. Green and red lights at sensor are out


Hello,

The most common cause of this type of power issue is a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board. Below is a picture of the board with the faulty capacitors circled, there are 2 more under one of the big black heat sinks. The board can be repaired by replacing the bad capacitors. Below the picture is a link to a kit of the correct parts for the board repair if you want to do the job yourself.

Where can i find a replacement picture tube for my akai 42" LCD tv?


Due to residual electricity, replacing a TV's picture tube is very dangerous. I would NOT do it myself. Besides this, getting a new picture tube frequently costs almost as much as a new TV would.

You can contact a local repairman (if it's still under warranty just send it back), and get an estimate, but seriously consider getting a new TV.

Akai lct2715 power supply repair needed. Please respond. Failure appears to have occured over several days. First picture had distortion at edges. Then blue AKAI screen would light but picture was not in...


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

Lcd akai 2715 blinking red light


The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

TV ON STANDBY MODE


The blinking light on the front indicates a shorted part in the power supply. The power board will need to be replace or repair to restore the LCD functionality.
Let me know if you required further assistance.

Akai lct2721ad flashing red light


I would bet on the power supply....these (and other Akai LCD) are notorious for filter capacitors. Look for electrolytic capacitors with a dome-like bulge on the top of them. They are usually located at the top of the power supply board where the power output lines run out.

 

Hpe this helps you out....
