No picture 27" Akai LCD

I turned on my 27" Akai DVD Combo, it was working fine, left the room for a minute when I came back there is sound and just red and gold with a slight picture in the background. The same when I put in a DVD.

Re: No picture 27" Akai LCD

If you can solder, you can fix this television. open the back there is one visible board with three bulging caps on it. the other board under the aluminum screen is usually fine leave it alone for now. On the board withe the bulging caps (three in a row 16v1000mf) you will need to remove the problematic caps. Use a desoldering iron or if you are very brave you can use a dremel (not advisable as you would have to remove the solder from the joint and then remove the caps with pliers). You can get 24v1000mf caps at radio shack for next to nothing jsut solder them in and rplace the board in the unit. viola if it doesn't work then you need to replace the MLT168a/b board you were jsut working on with a MLT169c from Replacing the caps did it for me though

those akai flat panel tvs had several capacitors fail on the mainboard and the power supply board. you can see them vented on the top or bottom they will look like they are exploding.

My AKAI tv/dvd combo - DVD quit working.

Most times it's video read issue such as a dirty lens on the laser.If you smoke in the house or use a fireplace there is a lot of airborn stuff to leave a slight haze on the lens making reading the disk impossible.Try a standard cd or dvd lens cleaner.The on that looks like a cd and uses alcohol on one of the cleaning brushes on the disk you've got a 50 50 chance.

good luck

The message you are seeing means that the tv is not receiving a signal from the source. Try hooking up a different source such as a DVD player or a Cable Box to that same input on the tv. If you have picture and sound then the problem is with the original source. If that does not work then you have a bad Main bd.

The power supply most likely failed on your LCD.
How old is your LCD?

Akai LCT2701AD - 27' LCD TV/DVD Player Combo

I don't know if I solved the problem. I find though if I turn the TV off and unplug it and then plug back in when I want to watch it - it works. I don't know why but it does. My remote still does not connect to the LCD but I have cable HDTV so chanel changes work from that control.

I am pretty ********** that it is only a year old and this has happened but what can you do? We live in a disposable world.

I was trying to get to your Premium assistance Plan from where I wrote my issue but I don't know where to pay or what to do on your site it keeps taking me all over.

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?
