Check the capacitors on the power board if the tops of any caps appears slightly puffed up on top its bad and will need replacement.

SOURCE: Blinking red lights

The failure of a blinking light is from a defective power supply. It could be a zener diode that is faulty, rectifier and a few capacitors as well.
I repair these power supplies. If you need more info send me an email to jah2mil@hotmail.com

SOURCE: 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!!

SOURCE: lct2701td akai brand, plugged in, flashing red

Sounds like it started "Protection Mode" because of a failed electronic part inside the TV. When this happens, the TV will keep turning itself OFF or will not turn ON at all. This keeps the other part inside from being damaged. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The common part to go bad for flat panel screens circuit board that powers the screen. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can again try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, purchase a Service Manual over the internet at Nodevice.com; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

SOURCE: LCT2701TD t.v. will not turn on. There is only a

Most failures on this LCD are due to defective capacitors in the power supply board.
The defective capacitors are 1000uF/16v, the reference designators are EC18, EC19 & EC20 and since the light is flashing. Z3 a 27v 1w zener diode might be shorted and two 10 ohms surface mount resistors might also be defective.
If you are fixing it yourself, you can use 1000uF/25v or 35v as long they fit in the space provided by design. Radio shack should carry the capacitors and possibly the zener diode but not the 10 ohms surface mount resistors.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

AKAI LCT2701TD no power, no flashing light? Would the problem be the same as those with a flashing light or do I look for something different?


Hi
The flashing light is actually a code indicating an area that may be defective. With no light at all, I would assume something is wrong in the primary of the power supply or a major component has completely shorted thus causing the primary to stop working. Find a reputable repair person. Good luck

Read the info from the link below to troubleshoot the failure with your LCD. Try not for force the LCD to work because for the time being it might only need the capacitors listed in the link but if the lights is blinking red, then the failure is a bit more complex to repair.

Red power indicator light is blinking


The flashing light indicates a short circuit inside the power supply circuitry. This type of repair is not a DIY without a multimeter, desoldering iron and hand soldering skills. I repair these power supplies, if you need further info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

Akai LCT 2701 TD - Red Blinking lIngt


The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

Flashing RED Light


Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to blink...got no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.
