I charge $100 + return shipping. I do use high quality capacitors as replacements in all of my work. My turn around time is usually next day ship out from the day I receive the power supply and I have parts on hand to repair the unit. I will be in Las Vegas for the next week but I will be back at my shop on the 10th so if you ship it out this week it should be waiting for me when I get back and I should be able to have it out Monday the 12th. If you are interested in having me perform this service for you let me know.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

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.
On my Akai LCT2715---- Ok, I had the same problem with locating USER MODE (even called Akai service HELP and that person didn't know anything)!!! even tho we looked through manual just got TV back from putting $184 in Capacitors repair (PUT IN NEW NICHICON CAPACITORS) from the standby button not woking just flashing from the Power Supply gone bad plus 2 main capacitors other than power supply that were bad. Works great now. For the USER MODE look on the remote in the bottom black area repeatedly push the P.MODE. You should have full function to adjust all in menu list WE DID.
Did you use the same as original replacement capacitors? I have repaired many of these power supplies for others and never had an issue. It is possible that the failing capacitors could have caused more damage to the power supply but I have never seen it in over 50 repaired AKAI power supplies. Also, make sure you replaced the capacitors with the proper polarity.
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.
