Question about Akai Projection Televisions

1 Answer

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. This tv is and HDTV with DVD included. The DVD is acting up too. Disc won't eject without a few tries. I tried using another outlet but all my outlets run on the same circuit. I don't want to spend a lot of money having to bring it to a shop but don't know what else to do. At my wits end! Need help.

    I have the same tv, after it has been turned off it won't come back on until you unplug it, replug it and the turn it on with the remote. ??? Don't have a clue?? I have tried turning it on from the side panel stand by swith but that doesnt work either. If you figure it out let me know. My husband was reading about the convergence board for anothe model of Akia tv. Perhaps it is the same problem.

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

Screen is scrambled. Working fine until I unpluged the TV one day. Is it a fuse?


If it looks 3d or warped its a convergence problem

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

Samsung HLP5063W 51 inch DLP is 4 years old. Screen scrambled?


there is a complete section in the tv that translate the different resolutions from the different out side video sources you normally use to the TV native resolution. That area has to be replaced. Is a module repair needed. Don't get scare. now days this kind of repair is normal and has to be included in the repair price to see if is economical to repair.
