Question about Akai LCT2785TA 27 in. LCD Television
Red standby light goes off and right back on when you try to turn it on
This is probably due to damaged inverter board. The best thing to do will be to get a replacement part from sears or somewhere else. Also if you can get me the part number i can help you find a replacement online.. Just in case..

A job for the technician on this one. I have only worked on several flat screen before, on my last days as an electronic technicians. Half of the ones I worked on was the power supply inside ir the problem was like this. Instruction on how to fix them would require me to write many pages on electronic theory so, I am very sorry It is almost impossible for me to help you on that. Be carefull where you take that tv to. some shop can't fix those. You may have to search your local area for someone who specialize in flat sreen HDTV. Well I hope I have shed a little light on the problem. Thanx for posting the problem.

I own the same TV and had the same problem.
It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TV made by Funai corp. Emerson is made by them.
Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.
The most common thing to go out on flat panel TVs is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can'tactually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom. I'm willing to bet you have the same problem like mine. One of six Inverter Transformers when bad on my Power/Backlight Inverter Supply Board. I replaced it and it works fine again.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual at Tvtechcenter.com; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $6. And most cases the new part cost less than $15. The service manual at the site is under LC320EM82S.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
