Question about Akai LCT2701TD Television

1 Answer


Just bought a new AKAI LCT2701TD. Problem is the TV will display MONO - SAP on the screen about every 5 to 10 minutes. I can't figure out why it's doing this nor can I figure out how to get it to stop. The remote doesn't have a SAP button.

In the audio menu, you should be able to select stereo or turn off sAP -- you may have to unplug the set for about 20 seconds and restore power to reset it, or return it if the problem doesn't go away. If you end up replacing the set, try for a JVC, Panasonic or Toshiba if you can switch. I think they will last longer for you.

No sound on some channels, other channels fine

Your SAP/MTS function is most likely turned on. This feature has 3 modes: Stereo, Mono and SAP. Stereo and Mono are easy to understand, it's the SAP that can get you. SAP stands for Second Audio Production. It is used to provide weather, information or an additional language translation of a program. Some broadcasters simply transmit the mono audio over the SAP audio channel when the are not using it for other purposes. Other broadcasters simply do not use it, which does not give you any audio. Look on your remote for a SAP or MTS button. If you do not see one, look in your TV user menu for this feature. If you are using a cable box, look in the audio menu of the cable box. You are looking for something set to SAP... just change it to STEREO. I hope this was helpful.

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!!

Sharp Aquos LC-32D44U stuck in ""Mono"

I dont know if this will work for you, but its worth a try. I had the same problem.

1. I changed to a station that was having the problem (an analog station with MONO displayed on the screen).
2. I unplugged the TV for about 15-20 minutes. (I was thinking maybe something needed to refresh, so thats why i unplugged the tv.)
3. I plugged the tv back in and voila. The station showed up as MONO then immediately swtiched to STEREO.

After that, i was able to use the AUDIO feature on the remote to actually change from MONO to SAP, etc.

Ive had my Sharp for about 5 months now, and thats the first time its happend to me. Luckily, i solved the problem...this time.

Hope it helps.

Flashing RED Light

Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to 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.
