Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television

TV will not turn on from Stand By mode

When TV is in Stand By mode a little red light is on and the TV makes a god awful hissing sound.  This morning the TV would not turn on from stand by, the light turned green but the TV screen never turned on.
I tried unplugging it and that worked for a while, once I turned it off again for almost an hour, it did not come back on.  Sometimes the power light goes from red to orange to red and a bad popping sound comes out of the speakers.
I bought it at Sams Club in late 2005, they probably used very substandard parts so they could get the set in the store at such a low price.
Any advice on what I should do

If you are comfortable taking the back cover off, do it and visually inspect a cylindrical shaped components on the power supply unit... if you can send a picture please do s69joe@hotmail.com

HI, MY NAME IS S. A. ANSARI, I HAVE A SHARP AQUOS LC-32A66M LCD TV. ONE DAY SUDDENLY GOES INTO STAND BY MODE. NOW WHENEVER WE TRIED TO TURNED IT ON, IT ON FOR 30 SECOND I.E. WE CAN SEE PICTURE, HEAR SOUND...


Hi Ansari
It sounds like a main board problem. The control voltage that goes to back-light inverter board; from the main board, goes down. Contact any service technician. This is not a user repairable fault. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

What if the tv is off and the red stand by light is not on what does that mean


The red "stand by" light shows power is getting to the TV. If it is off, you may have no house power being connected. If you can get the red light to come on but your TV still does not turn on the power supply may have failed

When i turn it on i hear it click inside the tv but no picture or sound i do see a little red light come oninside the tv


What about at the front of the TV... Is the stand by light on? It's the red light...

If the stand by light is on, then you can try removing the back cover and clean/vacuum especially the fan... disconnect the connectors to the main power supply ( it's the one on top and in the middle). Reconnect after a few minutes.

If the problem is not solved then you might have a faulty power supply board.

Good luck.

Note: Make sure that you unplugged the TV power cable first before you remove the cover. And also while you're vacuuming, you have to hold the metal frame to dissipate the static electricity created by the vacuum (motor).
Good luck.

Swicthed on tv and its a blank screen..now it wont switch off.


Can you see the menus on the screen?
Can you hear audio (sound)?
If you can hear sound but no menu we need to check the backlight.
Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, look very closely at the screen.
Do you see a video image?

Let me know what happens, I can assist further.

No picture on TV with powerlight on


If you press the power button *on* your TV (rather than using the RC), does the power light still stay on red rather than turn green?
