    I was watching atv show and all of a sudden tv went off with orange blinking light and speaker had crackling sound.

  • Anonymous Aug 03, 2008

    I have two TV and both TV's went bad within 1 month of one another. This happened during their 13 or 14 month, so the warranty had lapsed.



    Where can I get a power supply?

  • pinchine Aug 24, 2008

    Can anyone tell me where can I buy the power supply, everywhere I call, they tell me it has been discontinued.

  • nicolanikkie Mar 01, 2009

    Hope someone would help! I too have the Akai LCT2715 Power supply is bad and I know I can fix it with the instructions I got off Instructables Power Supply Removal BUT I have checked with MarVac-Badcaps-and DigiKey and cannot get the capacitors stated in forums that I need.

There are about 16 to 17 capacitors that are a common fail point on this TV. I can repair your power supply board with new high quality capacitors and recondition the board to work like new for $100 + S/H, you simply have to send me the power supply module and turn around is approx 2 days from the time I receive the package to the time its out the door. Approx 8 business days according to the delivery carrier you use.

I found Radio Shack carries 1000 uf 35v caps and 470 uf 35v caps. Frys carries the 1000 uf 16v and 470 uf 16v caps. I replaced the 25v caps with 35v caps and did not need to replace the main caps. Understand that you can go a little higher on the voltage specs even 50v if needed and you wont have any problems.Also, if you dont have either of these stores near you . You can get them from Newark Electronics Online.

Alright, I have all the capacitors taken off the power source (just at the one end), but now, I don't have the ability to get them soldered on - the working space is so tiny!

Twizted, how do I contact you for your service?

I too have an Akai LCT2715 27" and this afternoon while watching TV I too lost my screen and got the same strange popping in my speakers. After over an hour on hold I was put on the phone with a Customer Service Manager who informed me that because I have owned this TV for 4 months past the year mark I am on my own and Akai will not do anything to help me. They also let me know that if I wanted I could bring my television to thier service center 45min from my home, but that too would be my responsibility because as they had pointed out before I was 4 months over my 1 year warranty.

My akai television won't turn on


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

AKAI LCT2715 will not turn on gives blinking


This series of TVs has a famous issue with the power board (part number MLT166A or similar). Several capacitors and zener diodes burn out causing some resistors to burn as well. If you are capable of doing component level repairs check capacitors on the board and zeners Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5 and resistors around them. If you prefer to spend hundred bucks and simply buy the working power board for it - ebay is your answer.

Hello Will,       The price is indeed $100 + Return Shipping for the repair/reconditioning of the power supply for your TV. I am willing to extend a 30 day warranty on the repair and PayPal is acceptable and I can invoice you after I have made the repairs. I have replied to you via e-mail with shipping instructions.

Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.
