Scott lct32sha No red stand by light Wont power on anymore

Well, I had an Akai 27" that seem to have the same problem, took it to AKAI in Van Nuys and they gave me this unit for another $100. That was 18 months back and now same thing has happened.
Unit start shutting off to stand by, I would pull the plug, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. It would power up again. Now...nothing. When I would try to switch it on, red stand by light would briefly blink on...then nothing. Is it a power supply problem? If it is, I found a place on ebay that will do a refurb on my power board :
Would this be ok to do? Is replacing the board something I can do myself. I'm no good at soldering but can monkey with some electronics. Thanks much in advance!

    Oh...and how much would this fix be (about) if I take it to a TV repair shop? Is there a "better" power supply they can swap in to avoid (or at least prolong) its life?

Akai lct2721ad wont turn on red light in on

Whn you try to power it up does it attempt to power on before going red or does it just stay red? If it just stays red then its definitely a case of faulty power supply board. The easies way to resolve this problem would be to replace the power supply board, which can be obtained for about 50-75$ from So let me know if you wish to fix it yourself

Akai LCT2721AD TV just has a red light on. it wont power up at all.

I had the same problem with mine. I took the back off of it and found 3 blown 1000uF capacitators in the power supply. I replaced them and now it works fine. Cost me about $1 compared to $100 at the shop.

TV constantly goes off at any given time.

these sets have some bad capacitors in the power supply, if you look at them they are usually puffed up on the top.

I have a 1.5 yr old Scott LCT32SHA 32" LCD HDTV and the thing goes off by itself constantly and sometimes goes to static and have to disconnect power to turn it off. I think it is the power supply, but...

These power supplies are not longer manufactured or hard to find.
I repair them for a reasonable price. If you need further assistance, write to

Scott lcd tv does not turn on

This sounds like a proble with the unit's power supply in which case you could find a local tv repair shop and see how much they would charge to diagnose the issue.

Scott lcd tv does not turn on

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.

Be careful - High voltage!
