TV turns itself off after turning on. TV screen goes black.
My AkAI lct2721ad27 is giving me problems for the past few weeks. TV turns on and then immediately turns itself back off. It just started doing this. Before that the screen would fade to black until there was no picture. DVD player refuses to eject discs on the first try, prior to that it would pop the disk out after using the eject button. I have directtv service for my HDTV but DirectTV does not service AKAI tv's. I have to use the AKAI tv remote to turn tv on and off and to use the volume button. I havent't had this tv for more than a year and I paid a pretty penny for it but I am experiencing problems my less than better tvs haven't given me. DTV thinks it's a signal problem, that my signals are scrambled and they believe it has to do with having that looked at. They don't believe the tv is broken. I don't either but something is very wrong. Please help.
Re: TV turns itself off after turning on. TV screen goes...
Based on what I have read AKAI has reoccurring problems with power supply and bad DVD sound. The problem you have is caused by the DVD player trying to start. Never leave a disk in when you shut it off or you will have the same symptom you are describing.

Oh Dear. I had the same problem!! The Akai televisons are not well engineered-meaning that they tried to put too much in a little package. The problem is that the power supply is malfunctioning"supposedly". But I believe that the sad truth is that the whole motherboard is malfunctioning. I can suggest a few TEMPORARY solutions but they too are not guaranteed to work!
1. Bring the tv to a repair shop and tell them to check the power supply. If it is faulty -have it exchanged and it will work for <2 weeks.
2. Literally "bend" the television in multiple directions to find a sweet spot where the screen turns on.( wait for the diode tu tur green before doing this) this will slightly bend the motherboard in hopes of agitating it to turn the screen/bulbs on.
I am terribly sorry that you too have this ridiculous problem!!!!!! :-(
Good Luck!!! I am crossing my fingers for you!!
My 42 inch Akai is about 6 months old,, and is showing green where black should be..
BUt there is help for you all.. Call Verizon, sign up for their "Expert Care" program. it's $10.00 a month, and active after the third month.
with a $75.00 deductable. THey will fix or Replace (give you choice of three alternate models/brands).
Free services under this plan are adjustments, and One FREE remote per year!.
i recomend you sign up for this program, and after 90 days. call for service. They more than likely will replace your TV's.
This is what they did with mine..
it doesn't matter how old your TV is, the plan is applicable to all TV's in your household. So one plan, one monthly payment of $10.00, covers all the TV's you own!!
It will burn into the screen overtime. The Akai units have a resistor on the address board that feeds the PDP that usually has a crack in the solder on one or both ends of it. There are about 4 address boards that are right below the panel itself and the suspect one is the board right below the line that is appearing. Have someone with solder skills repair it.
