I have the same problem as the one on the ad "I have the problem posted by another AKAI victim. The TV's power indicator is red, then green when the power is initiated but it immediately turns back red and the TV never turns on. What can I do to resolve this? The TV isn't 2 years old."

Check the wall outlet, make sure there is power at the wall. If not, check the breaker panel. If there is power at the wall, check the TV for a manual on/off switch. If you have a power switch on the TV, turn it off, wait 10 seconds, then turn it on. If no power switch on the TV, unplug the TV for 10 seconds, then plug in again. Use the remote to turn the TV on. Check for a fuse or circuit breaker on the TV, usually near where the power cord enters the TV.
Make sure you have good batteries in the remote. If all this fails, then something may be damaged inside your TV, as a result of a power spike before the power went out, or when it came back on.
Take it to a repair shop.
The power shut off because it has been a power surge - the voltage on the line grew very high for a fraction of a second. When that happened the protection system at the power station that powers your house disconected the mains, shutting everything down. Unfortunately it hasn't acted fast enough and the power source of the tv has been fried by the surge. To fix that you will have to dismantle the tv and replace the power source with an original one. If you don't know ho to do it then the only thing left for you to do is to take the tv to a certified repair shop. It will be expensive, so be prepared .
Less power output from the internal SMPS; usually 110v, may less. Horizontal output capacitor may leaky. Horizontal output transistor fault may occur. In rare cases deflection yoke assembley fault.
If the picture is stamped size; suspect the power supply. If the picture is less in width, suspect the above said capacitor, and the lenearity coil fitted on the main board.
depending on where you bought the tv. almost all companys keep electronic data on who bought what from them and when. simply for this one reason. in case you loose your warranty. check with the retail shop you bought it from they should have you on there computer

First locate your warranty card: which you got when you purchased your tv. Fill up the details like date of purchase and model or identification number. It may also be required to present the proof and place of purchase along with the signature of the dealer. Next pack the tv in the original packing along with all the accessories you received out of the box. Write a letter to the manufacturer about the problem. Add all the details like when the problem appears and what the tv does. Send it to the designated address (located on the warranty card or the manual). An alternative way is to directly go to the place of purchase and your dealer will do the rest.
Try 1234, or 0000. Those are usually the ones that come factory installed. Good luck! If not, try searching password for (insert brand) online. It might be a common installed password. If all else fails, call the company.
Sounds like the power supply may be going out, or check and see if there is a circuit breaker button on the back. Otherwise there may e a blown fuse that is internal. Don't open the back unless you have training on what is safe to touch as the picture tube can maintain a HUGE electrical charge that can stop your heart if you accidently touch the wrong thing. Sounds like a weak power supply tho. Jay
