Question about Akai LCT2716 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Akai television We have a 27" Akai flat screen t.v. that is about 2 years old. One night it was working great and the next day the standby light is quickly flashing yellow and there is no sound or picture. We cannot even use the VCR or DVD. It has no print on the screen either (ie: VGA, Component 1 etc.) We attempted to unplug it for a while to see if it changed anything but nothing happened. Help!

    Decided to take to repair shop and the power supply was the problem.  They thought maybe it was a surge at some point but all the other electronic devices on the surge protector bar still worked.  At least if it happens again I will know the exact problem.  Thenkyou very much for your input.

    I have a 27" Akai TV/DVD combo that I bought about 2 years ago. The red light is flashing on the front of TV and nothing works. I read this may be the power supply. Does anyone know where to purchase this part and the cost or if Akai is taking care of this problem since it is obviously a manufacturer defect?

 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 will have to be serviced by a repair tech...


Hope this helps you out....

If its a 27 inch and older than 2 years it may be cheaper to replace than repair it.

Standby is on so main fuse is good.

someone needs to open it and follow power cord to power supply inside the set---some voltage tests will confirm if power supply is working or not.

If power supply checks good next would be following the voltages to see if one suddenly is missing.

Let me know if you have quesions

AKAI LCT 2715:

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.
