Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television
Hi, When I turn my Akai LCT2715 TV on power indicator blinks red briefly and then turns off. No sign of life. I replaced all power board caps...still no dice. Any ideas ....switch transformer, transistors, etc? I poked around w/ a multimeter - everything downstream (I have no diagram) of transformers has no conductivity to main power in. How do I test for a bad transformer? Thanks in advance. Peter
I have a different thread going, but saw yours and had a question. Is your light blinking steady and then off? or is it a blinking erraticly or even flickering? My bad caps (15 of them) were all on the secondary side of the PSU. I have been told (thanks to Jaimie Hernandez) if you have a steady blinking, then it is very likely that you have a bad zener diode Z3(27v/1Watt) shorted in the primary side of the power board. If that diode is shorted, it's very likely that 2 10 ohms resistors might be open, these resistors are connected to the cathode of Z3. Also check for bad caps on the Primary side.
I had a huge incentive to fix the TV, it is my wife's TV and she has been in my Man Cave since it died. How about that incentive.
