Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television
My set started acting strange about 20 days ago. When I turn it on it showed streaks of color. Then when I turned it on the red light would go to orange/yellow immediately. I had to turn off and then turn back on befor the green light came on and TV worked. NOW when I turn it on the red light blinks very fast and it makes a loud buzzing/clicking sound. I have reserched this and it seam to be a very common problem after 2 years of owner ship. Is this a re-call issue? If not, then who do I contact at AKAI to get this resolved.
You are right that this is a common problem for plasmas regardless of the brand. They all have similar boards on the inside that do the same thing and usually it is after a couple years of use. If your set has quiet cooling fans on the back, they after time attract alot of lint and dust and moisture from the ambient air that causes alot of y-sus and z-sus boards to fail. I would at least take the back cover off and blow out all that dust that has accumulated. If it is out of warranty as I am sure it probably is after 2 years, you certainly will not hurt anything. Call tech support at AKAI, I am sure you will not be the first to log in this complaint. Those tvs are suppose to last through 60,000 hours of use (20 years). Be firm with them and they may just give you a replacement. Some people have been successful at pleading their case after the 2 years are up on the warranty.. I hope this helped. God bless and good luck.
