Question about Akai LCT2715 27 in. LCD Television
Help! I was just watching television and it shut off suddenly. The on/off light just blinks red but the tv won't turn back on. I've had it for less than 6 months.
What do you think this might be?
I have the same problem. My Akai 27" flat screen shuts off inconsistantly. Sometimes it will stay on for hours and then we have to turn in on every 2 minutes. It seems to be getting worse. Is there anyone who has found a way to fix this?

I had to take my tv to a repairman. He told me it was the power supply. Once he rebuild it the tv has worked great.

It should be under warranty if you bought it new 6months ago so exercise your right to repair under warranty. The problem could be a dry joint somewhere or in the power supply or horizontal oscillator/driver or EHT section. It may be hard to accept, but the youthfulness of any piece of electronic equipment is no guarantee against failure at any moment! That is why even the manufacturer has to put a warranty on it, becuse they can't predict or prevent that happening. The Warranty you get is part of the sales pitch that tries to get you to believe that you are in some way immune to this affecting you for the warranty period. I have had to repair many failed consumer goods before they even made it from the warehouse to the shop floor, let alone your own lounge room!
I hope you feel at least enlightened although I do not doubt you remain displeased.

I may have found it! For all of you with an AKAI, and it is shutting off on you, or won't turn on, try this. I decided to take the "small" panel off in the back (not the whole back). There is a small trigger that can be pushed back and forth - it gets pushed back when you put the panel back on (or it should). I found when I put the panel back on, the trigger wasn't getting pushed back all the way. You will notice that if you push the trigger in the whole way, and get another person to turn the tv on in the front, it should stay on, then let go, you will see that the tv will turn off. Basically all I did was tape this trigger so that it is all the way back, put the panel back on, and watch tv without the damn thing turning off! As well I did notice that there was a piece of black plastic left over that I can't seem to find where it goes - maybe it was part of the panel that pushed this trigger the whole way back - not sure. All I know is that the tv has not shut off yet - could it be that easy? Hopefully - good luck. I definitely will not go with AKAI again, will have to spend the extra dollar next time.

I found an Akai TV on the side of the road. On the first day of fidgeting with it, I noticed that every time I flick the switch that is under the TV in the lower left corner, the little light in the lower right corner blinks an orange color. I only got it working once by flicking the switch under the TV off so the orange blinking light turned red. Before the light went black, I flicked the switch back on and the red light stayed. I then pressed the "Stand By On" button and it came on and I was able to watch a movie! I tried it again the next day and day after that, but nothing happened (when I made the red light stay and pressed the Stand By On button, it just kept blinking an orange color). I would suggest not buying an AKAI TV to any one. These TVs are junk and now I have to go in the terrible process of trying to fix the darn thing!!

DON'T BUY AN AKAI PRODUCT! I PURCHASED A 42" FLAT PANEL HD T.V. FROM eCOST.COM. THE PICTURE WENT OUT COMPLETELY! eCOST WOULD NOT STAND BEHIND IT AND AKAI DID NOTHING BUT GIVE ME THE RUN AROUND.

The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to email@example.com
