Model LCT2721AD problem showed 5/11/09 about 24 hours ago. TV will not turn on with or without remote. It won't turn on with start button on the side of the unit. If I pull the power plug from the house current then plug back in everything works ok. I can shut it off a few seconds and turn it back on. If I wait say an hour and try it again no dice got to pull plug again.Not sure when I bought this set I am guessing 2 years. Thanks in advance. William Ash- Morristown,NJ

My Samsung TV, model LN26A450, would not turn on. The red light would flicker a little when I pressed the power button, but that is all. It was obviously a border line problem, because when the room warmed up, the TV would work, but when the room was cold, the TV was dead.


As a lot of people have pointed out, the problem was a capacitor in the power supply. There was a 2200uf, 10v, 105c capacitor that had a slight bulge on the top. Interestingly, this one capacitor was a lighter shade of blue than the rest.


The TV was easy to take apart, and it was easy to remove the power supply. It took some close examination to find the capacitor with the bulge. The next step was replacing that capacitor.


Luckily, replacement capacitors are available on Amazon. I found mine here.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0044JL9T4

There are also kits available that include all the capacitors on the power supply.


To replace the capacitor, you will need a soldering iron and some thin solder.


Remove the bad capacitor(s) using the soldering iron. Be sure to note the polarity before you pull it out. Cut the leads on the new capacitor so that they are the same length as the old one. Then insert the new capacitor using the right polarity. It might be necessary to melt the existing solder to insert the leads. Once the leads are inserted, melt a little bit of new solder into the holes to ensure good contact.


Hope this helps.

Switch off the TV from remote, then switch off the on/off button on the TV, remove the plug pin from the power outlet. Cool off for 48 hours and then retry. If nothing works, better refer it to a qualified service technician.

This LCD is using a power supply number: MLT168A. The common failure is with defective capacitors in the secondary side and you do not need schematics for this repair. Use the picture below as a reference to find the defective capacitors that show signs of bulging. You might also need to replace 2 capacitors under HS4.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

When I turn the tv on, it comes on in DVD mode and won't change over to the tv mode.


You have two ways to change it to TV Mode.
1 - remote control (source button) -cycle through the options.
2 - side of the unit (source button) -cycle through the options.

If the remote doesn't work, try using the button on the TV to change the source mode.
If this doesn't work, you have a problem with the TV.

Another option is to check your inputs. If you have the input for the DVD in the wrong place, that may also be causing you the inability to change from DVD mode.

TV will not start easily. Akai LCT2721AD


You only have to unplug it for 30 seconds. Also, make sure it does not have a DVD in it when you turn it off as the TV will try to default to the DVD all the time. Resetting the power (I use a surge protector) allows it to turn back on normally. Based on the comments I've seen this TV has terrible sound with DVD, doesn't want to turn on, and is hard to mount on a wall.

Tv will not turn on with or without remote


The power supply is broken. You need to replace the capacitors that are bulging inside. I did and now it works fine. I don't have any experience but I did it. Follow what this guy did. http://www.fixya.com/support/t1661054-akai_lcd_tv_power_light_stays_red_turn

AKAI LCT2721AD On/Off Problem


My Philips LCD TV had the same problem. If your Voltage system is 110 AC till 127 AC and no transformator, then it is probably caused by one of the 4 main transistors, which are likely not originalfrom AKAI, but made in Malaysia or closeby there.
My TV works perfectly after 1. Replacing the burned or semi-burend transistors (in the back panel) 2. After repair (=US 60 plug the TV in a outlet from transformator set to 100 V.Good Luck!

Try this: On the Tivo remote press and hold the TV Power button and the Directv/TIVO button at the same time. Hold both buttons down for about 4 seconds or until remote light stays red. Then press the channel up button until the tv turns off. You may press the button over 100 times. You need to go slow. When the TV turns off press the enter button (or select button).
