Question about Akai LCT2721AD 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

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.

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.

Akai lct2701td, flat screen tv won't turn on.


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!!

I have an Akai LCT2721AD27. I think its a power problem. My TV turns off as soon as it comes on. The screen is scrambled with all kinds of crazy colors displayed but no picture. Then it turns itself off....


The way your LCD is behaving is because the power supply is not providing enough voltage to the circuitry due to dying capacitors.

Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 32" TV problem


This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.
