Question about Akai LCT2785TA 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

No signal After repairing the power supply due to only getting the red light it now powers on shows the AKAI splash screen then goes to a blue screen in "svideo" mode and a "no signal" in the upper right side. Also it shows a volume level at 0 and the 0 pulsates. I'm unable to power the t.v. on or off with the button on the t.v., I can turn it on with the remote but it will not respond to turn it off with either the remote or button. I've disconnected the button control panel on the t.v. and it responds the same. If I hold any buttons (except for the volume down) on the t.v. for 3 seconds the volume level will disappear until release it. It appears to be stuck, I can't change inputs or anything. I hook up a Svideo source and it still shows "no signal". I also tried a known working power supply without any change in t.v. operation. Any ideas?

I very highly doubt that is merely a power supply problem,I would suspect that it is a small signal board (aka scaler board) or at the very least,have the inverter boards checked

Actually the most likely not heat. At least heat is not likely what is causing the current issue your describing. The power supply in these and for that matter most AKAI televisions were very poorly manufactured. But the symptoms you are describing sound more like a common capacitor issue that the AKAI brand TV's are known for. Basically several of the capacitors on the secondary side of the board become bad and can bulge or leak and sometimes, they do not even show signs of going bad but still are not performing up to spec which is what causes the problem you are discribing. In some cases you may have other components tht have failed also but about 80-90% of the time it is due to bad capacitors around the board. There are several options online for repairing your power supply and some repair shops will work on them altough most will just want you to buy a new power supply. I repair LCD power supplies on the side and once repaired with better quality capacitors you should be able to get several more years out of your LCD.

Akai lct 2070 tv switch does not turn on tv-no sound-no tv


Most failures on this TV are due to defective power supplies. If the TV does not turn ON, you should replace the power supply.
Check this website to buy the power supply adapter and hopefully that should fix the TV.

If Z3 was shorted, there are 2 surface mount resistors that were damaged when Z3 became shorted and they have to be replace as well. The reference designator for the resistors is R65A and R65B, their value is 10 ohms and 1206 is the body size of the resistors.

This is a mean problem, and I feel for anyone who has it.

This can be caused by a bad power board, a bad main board or a lcd LCD panel.

An authorized repair shop would be able to substitute the main and power boards to find the source of the fault, but you don't have that luxury.

Unless you want to risk paying for an expensive part you don't need, I would suggest you take it to an Akai repair shop.

It is possible that it is due to the power supply since you said "I can turn the TV off with the remote, but can't turn it on again unless toggle the power switch off (and then on) the set itself and only then can I use the remote to turn the TV on"

The power supply could be failing which could cause that symptom. Otherwise if it was not the Power supply it would likely be the main video board that is failing. In any case I would probably take a look at the power supply first as it seems to be a common fail point of the Akai LCT2715.

If it is the power supply you can have it replaced by a TV repair service. They usually do not bother repairing them which ends up 1) costing you more 2) being unnecessary. I offer to repair these Power Supplies if they are indeed faulty. I charge $100 + Return Shipping for the repair.

Akai LCT3701AD refuses to leave STANDBY mode.


The power supply on your LCD is defective. It does not provide the power needed to all the circuitry due to defective capacitors or other components.
You will need to replace the power supply or get it repair because these service parts are not longer being manufactured.
Good Luck.

Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds


Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.
