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.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

Have an old sony HDTV proj tv, and the picture went out last night. I heard sort of a "pop" then no picture


Pop sound shows that some thing went wrong inside TV and most probably any part got busted.
