Sound quality - Akai LCT2701TD

My Akai 27" lcd's sound quality is very bad. The vendor told me it could not be repaired, because it was an internal problem. The Akai technical staff seemed to confirm this when they told me I'd need a cable box (for a cable-ready tv) to get the sound to work properly. Is there anything else I could do? I don't have room for a cable box, now that I have a larger tv. Thanks

Re: Sound quality - Akai LCT2701TD

I don't have any problem with sound when I plug my cable wire directly into the TV's coaxial port. It sounds like there is a problem with the speakers or the sound board in the TV. I don't think the cable box would even help. If the TV is still under warranty, maybe you could borrow a cable box from someone else to see if it will work, and if it doesn't, contact Akai tech support again and demand repairs.

Read the info from the link below to troubleshoot the failure with your LCD. Try not for force the LCD to work because for the time being it might only need the capacitors listed in the link but if the lights is blinking red, then the failure is a bit more complex to repair.

My akai lcd tv model lct2721ad sound will not work.

We need to verify if the problem is in the preamp or poweramp sections. Hook up the powered PC speakers to the AUDIO Line out RCA jacks and verify that sound is OK there, if it is OK, The problem will be in the power amp sections that drive the speakers. If it sounds bad at the RCA jacks, the problem will be in the sound processor board which mean the main board will have to be replaced, same if the power amp is bad.

Will not power on, blinking red "power on" light

The power supply might have a shorted/defective diode(s), blown resistors, capacitors if the light is blinking on the front of the LCD.
I repair these power supplies, write to if you need further assistance.
