Intermittent problem with "heatsink" on an AKAI LCT2701TD TV

For the second time, my tv has "quit" while on and I was not able to restart it at that time. I contacted FIXYA after the first time. I "blew out" the back of my TV on both occassions, waited about 5 hours and my TV would work again. They indicated that the problem may be with the heatsink. I live in rural Costa Rica. There is a repair shop for TVs in a neighboring community. I need to know what part I need to order to replace the "heatsink for this TV so I can have one here if the problem happens again and I can't get the TV going again. By the way, this is the rain forest and it is quite humid. There was a one month interval between the first episode of quitting and this one. Thank you.

Cleaning out the guts of a plasma TV is beneficial if temporary. Accumulations of dust that tends to hold moisture are not good for any device that uses higher voltages.
A heatsink is not a working part, it is a device to dissipate hate caused by and active component such as a transistor or high powered diode or integrated circuit. They are generally made of extruded aluminum and can be of about any shape as long as there is radiating surface available.
Your climate is not an easy one for many different kinds of electronics and it may be necessary to position a fan behind your set if it is consistently running too hot. There isn't much else you can do if it is a heat related problem.

MY 4YEARS AKAI LCD TV IS BLINKING ORANGE LIGHT BUT


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.

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!!

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.

Sound quality - Akai LCT2701TD


I don't have any problem with sound when I plug my cable wire directly into the TV's coaxial port. It sounds like there is a problem with the speakers or the sound board in the TV. I don't think the cable box would even help. If the TV is still under warranty, maybe you could borrow a cable box from someone else to see if it will work, and if it doesn't, contact Akai tech support again and demand repairs.
