Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television

Blinking red light

The LCT2715 is over 2 years old. It hasn't been used that much until recently. Last night, the TV's picture went blank and was making an awful sound. Unplugged to make it stop. Plugged in the power cord again, nothing. Only a blinking red light. You can used the power switch to turn the blinking light off and then back on again. This light used to be either solid red when off or green when on. So what does this blinking red light mean. Is the power supply bad?

    I have the same problem except I can hear the speakers popping with the blinking light.

  • Anonymous Nov 24, 2008

    Yes! Same problem. Popping in speakers and will not even come on anymore. So this $600 three year old AKAI junk sits in the corner in the bedroom while we watch our 14 year old $99 Sharp. Not funny.

I have experienced this also, 5 times red led blinking when turned on, its a tube flat tv. i think this is all about power supply of the screen, all i did is to adjust the plyback supply and the tv goes ok now.

It appears in all cases that the power supply needs to be service. The blinking light might indicate that there are shorted parts or the voltage is low or a combination of both.
The 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

LG LED TV has sound but no picture. Went out all of a sudden. Image shows with flashlight. Flashes for split second on power up and power down.


Your screens back light has most likely failed and or the voltage controller for the back light, both should be replaced.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

Black screen, green light on the bottom is on, electric plug is on house plug, no picture, was working fine last night, now only black screen!


Do a hard reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help you, check and replace its main digital board. It will be faulty.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

I have a lg tv 60 inch tv ln5600 when powering on red stand by light blinks 3 time then no light pic or sound not backlight and no image when using flashlight treid replacing power board does same


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!
