This series of TVs has a famous issue with the power board (part number MLT166A or similar). Several capacitors and zener diodes burn out causing some resistors to burn as well. If you are capable of doing component level repairs check capacitors on the board and zeners Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5 and resistors around them. If you prefer to spend hundred bucks and simply buy the working power board for it - ebay is your answer.
The power supply is defective if the TV fails to power up or the front light just blinks, common failure on these LCDs with MLT166A power supplies.
I repair these power supplies, if you need further assistance write to email@example.com
On my Akai LCT2715---- Ok, I had the same problem with locating USER MODE (even called Akai service HELP and that person didn't know anything)!!! even tho we looked through manual just got TV back from putting $184 in Capacitors repair (PUT IN NEW NICHICON CAPACITORS) from the standby button not woking just flashing from the Power Supply gone bad plus 2 main capacitors other than power supply that were bad. Works great now. For the USER MODE look on the remote in the bottom black area repeatedly push the P.MODE. You should have full function to adjust all in menu list WE DID.
