Re: akai tv 27"

This model is notorious for power supply problems (mainly bad filter capacitors). They are large electrolytic capacitors located at the top of the switch mode power supply (SMPS) board. Most of the time they are easily spotted (the tops are pushed out in a dome shape rather than the flat top they are supposed to have) but it could be something that is not so easily detected. At any rate, the power supply is probably to blame, and unless you have knowledge in electronics repair, it will have to be serviced by a repair tech...


Hope this helps you out....

The tv will not turn on by remote or manually.... the small red light on front is just

If the TV fails to power ON, in about 90% of the time is due to a power supply failure. If you intend to DIY, I would suggest to visually inspect the capacitors in the power supply. Replacing them should correct the failure with the TV.

Will not power on, blinking red "power on" light

The power supply might have a shorted/defective diode(s), blown resistors, capacitors if the light is blinking on the front of the LCD.

Akai LCT2715 No Power

I have a different thread going, but saw yours and had a question. Is your light blinking steady and then off? or is it a blinking erraticly or even flickering? My bad caps (15 of them) were all on the secondary side of the PSU. I have been told (thanks to Jaimie Hernandez) if you have a steady blinking, then it is very likely that you have a bad zener diode Z3(27v/1Watt) shorted in the primary side of the power board. If that diode is shorted, it's very likely that 2 10 ohms resistors might be open, these resistors are connected to the cathode of Z3. Also check for bad caps on the Primary side.

I had a huge incentive to fix the TV, it is my wife's TV and she has been in my Man Cave since it died. How about that incentive.

Good luck
