Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television

3 Answers

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.

Problem with a Sony KLV-26HG2 LCD tv switching on for 2 secs then switching off/ flashing standby light


These 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

Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on


That blinking led is an error code for the audio standby board in the set. It should not go out this soon and yes it should last longer.

1 Answer

No picture ; no sound


the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.
