I just recieved a possible solution from you about my tv not being able to turn on. I have only had the TV for 18 months and this should not happen to such a new TV. i really intend to take it back to where i purchsed it and see what they cando for me on this matter. If i did choose to send it to oyu, whats to say that you wont jsut keep the part and leave me SOL. I really am new to this whaole process and have no reason to think that i should jsut send it to you in good faith that you'll return the correct part needed. I really am not trying to be difficult, i guess what i really am asking you... How does this process go?
Completely understandable concern. I have fixed 9 AKAI LCT2715 power supplies for other people who have contacted me through fixya.com and 2 through my instructable on instructables.com.
I did notice that you posted this under AKAI LCT3201 TD 32in. LCD Television TV/DVD Combo troubleshooting... I do not remember posting to anything other than the problems concerning AKAI LCT 2715 27in TV's. But in any case this could be the same issue for you as I have noticed a common failure point on AKAI TV's is due to the poor power supply components they use.
As far as trust is concerned I can not really say anything more other than I do keep in contact via email about the parts that are shipped to me to let the customer know when it arrives as well as discussing payment options up front so you know what to expect. I also offer paypal as a payment option and I send an invoice via paypal when the power supply is ready to ship.
Thank you for your question and I hope this helps you understand how this general process works for more cases.

i have one of these akai 27 inch with dvd, i had a similar issue i found a power supply at auction and exchanged it and it works fine now, normally with this symptom your power supply is fualty. if the light goes green and you have no picture then you know other boards are fualty
Ur tv power supply board it dead,that the board where the power a/c cord plug into it.Replaced the power supply board.Ur tv will return to normal,the tv power up will be stable and work again.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
Power surges are extremely unpredictable, they can damage everything inside the tv, from the power supply printed circuit board, to the main printed circuit board. Normally the power supply takes alot of the damage from these things, so check over the power supply for any damaged components, any burnt out parts on printed circuit board, and also check the fuse. Good luck.
We just repaired ours - same problems (did not replacc the 1000uF and 470uF Capacitors in secondary yet as ours were still OK, but the FET was killed by an arcing capacitor across a diode,
See the page we created for this with pictures.
Most failures on this TV are due to defective power supplies. If the TV does not turn ON, you should replace the power supply. Check this website to buy the power supply adapter and hopefully that should fix the TV.
Its possible that it is the power supply. If you wanted me to take a loot at it I could but you would need to remove the power supply from the TV and ship it to me. The power supply has been a common fail point of TV's, VCR's and other home electronics in the past several years. Let me know if this is something you would like to discuss further. I just need contact info.
Hello, I can repair your power supply which is most likely the reason for this failure. I charge a flat rate of $100 + return shipping to recondition the power supply.
I have created an Instructable located here http://www.instructables.com/id/AKAI_LCT2715_Power_Supply_Removal/ which will guild you through the removal of the power supply from the TV. Once you have the power supply removed you can ship it to me for repair. E-Mail me at (twizted at dragonmodz dot net) for shipping address and to discuss any other questions you may have.
It is possible that it is due to the power supply since you said "I can turn the TV off with the remote, but can't turn it on again unless toggle the power switch off (and then on) the set itself and only then can I use the remote to turn the TV on"
The power supply could be failing which could cause that symptom. Otherwise if it was not the Power supply it would likely be the main video board that is failing. In any case I would probably take a look at the power supply first as it seems to be a common fail point of the Akai LCT2715.
If it is the power supply you can have it replaced by a TV repair service. They usually do not bother repairing them which ends up 1) costing you more 2) being unnecessary. I offer to repair these Power Supplies if they are indeed faulty. I charge $100 + Return Shipping for the repair.
