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.

Hitachi LCD M50VS810 -- picture gradually darkened up over the past 4 days and now picture won't come on. Replace bulb?


If it uses a lamp that is possible---sets with a lamp will often dim down just before the lamp fails in a total way.

Could be capacitors in the power supply leaking, they usually swell a little causing this sort of problem.

My akai dlp tv turns itself off then it flashes


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

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

With no picture but only sound on my Akai PDP 4294


Try replacing the Y-sustain board. Might have to replace buffers attached to it too. Have you had it diagnosed? My picture went out and I replaced the power supply board. Worked for 2 weeks then acted up again. Got a different power supply board. Same thing 2 weeks later. Was told it now was a bad Y-sustain board. Replaced y-sustain board. Worked OK for about 2 hours then started having picture issues. Not the same issues before power supply or y-sustain problem. Was told that you might have to replace buffers attached to y-sustain when you replace y-sustain. Tired of dealing with it and only watch a couple hours a day, so I don't always have the problem unless I watch the TV for a long time. Will eventually replace buffers to see if that works. I would definitely find a place that gives free estimates or close to free to get a technician diagnosis. Then you can decide if you are able to do the work yourself.

Akai lct2715 power supply


I charge $100 + return shipping. I do use high quality capacitors as replacements in all of my work. My turn around time is usually next day ship out from the day I receive the power supply and I have parts on hand to repair the unit. I will be in Las Vegas for the next week but I will be back at my shop on the 10th so if you ship it out this week it should be waiting for me when I get back and I should be able to have it out Monday the 12th. If you are interested in having me perform this service for you let me know.
