My two-year old 27 " Akai LCT2715 screen freezes now and then (and now with increasing frequency). The TV action would stay on but was going to light blue at first for a long time (maybe a year). It's now breaking up into several big vertical sections of different colors. Less often, it goes to black with a number of multi-colored thin lines running vertically. In all cases, the sound stays on. I can turn the TV off with the remote, but can't turn it on again unless toggle the power switch off (and then on) the set itself and only then can I use the remote to turn the TV on. So what could it be?
It is possible that it is due to the power supply since you said "I can turn the TV off with the remote, but can't turn it on again unless toggle the power switch off (and then on) the set itself and only then can I use the remote to turn the TV on"
The power supply could be failing which could cause that symptom. Otherwise if it was not the Power supply it would likely be the main video board that is failing. In any case I would probably take a look at the power supply first as it seems to be a common fail point of the Akai LCT2715.
If it is the power supply you can have it replaced by a TV repair service. They usually do not bother repairing them which ends up 1) costing you more 2) being unnecessary. I offer to repair these Power Supplies if they are indeed faulty. I charge $100 + Return Shipping for the repair.

Both power supplies are supplying the same voltages to the circuits but in order to use the one from the NS-27LCD 27" you will need to change the wiring configurations to make it work for the LCT2715..
I could repair the power supply from the LCT2715 for under $90.00 including parts, labor and shipping it back to you.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
you need to inspect the board, most of the time you can trace the problem according to a deformed component.... bulged capacitor, burnt component (black dust on component and board) or if it's an IC crack or chipped ...
For him to have only replaced 3 resistors and charge you $269 is ridiculous. All be it I can say he would be justified in charging for in home service $200 for 3 resistors is just wow... I have not had a AKAI LCT2715 in my shop that had this issue but if I had I would probably start by checking out the power supply which not only provides power to the TV's main board but filters it and this if failing could cause other issues or even damage keeping in mind that this is a primary fail point on these TV's. My suggestion is to take it to a more reputable repair center and get a quote on repairs. If you would like me to take a look at the power supply I can and if it needed repaired I perform this service for $100 + Return shipping and I do accept paypal so you can pay after I have examined the unit and determined if it even needs to be repaired. If you need to know how to remove the power supply I have created an instructable to help those who need it. You can find it here http://www.instructables.com/id/AKAI_LCT2715_Power_Supply_Removal/
I don't know if I solved the problem. I find though if I turn the TV off and unplug it and then plug back in when I want to watch it - it works. I don't know why but it does. My remote still does not connect to the LCD but I have cable HDTV so chanel changes work from that control.
I am pretty ********** that it is only a year old and this has happened but what can you do? We live in a disposable world.
I was trying to get to your Premium assistance Plan from where I wrote my issue but I don't know where to pay or what to do on your site it keeps taking me all over.
