Open Question

Power-up, but no picture

Have been using this new LCD TV (AKAI2016) for two weeks. All of a sudden, no red-light indicator is showing, and no AKAI logo on start-up. Just a blank (white) screen. Then screen goes off in about a minute. Picture won't appear. Batteries okay in remote. Using cable TV system. Troubleshooting section in TV manual does not address this problem. Stumped!

Lcd akai 2715 blinking red light

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

The blinking light on the front indicates a shorted part in the power supply. The power board will need to be replace or repair to restore the LCD functionality.
Let me know if you required further assistance.

Akai PT5598HDX/SMS won't turn on

Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.

Akai TV troubleshooting

I have the same problem. My Akai 27" flat screen shuts off inconsistantly. Sometimes it will stay on for hours and then we have to turn in on every 2 minutes. It seems to be getting worse. Is there anyone who has found a way to fix this?
