Power light is flashing red on my tv and will not power on...

I disconnected the power cord from the tv and the wall, waited 15 minutes and reconnected. Same problem, any help resolving this would be really appreciated... light flashes red but will not turn on will never turn on with standby - must use power switch on back to turn off - then back on after several minutes. Sometines it can be over an hour before a solid red light appears and then i can turn on with remote. this unit is not more than a year old.

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.

Hi I am Vortash this sounds like an component heating problem that is , the component gets hot the set goes into standby no further function is possible .It may be on the power supply or it could be on the remote circuit but whatever it is this will need an engineer to do voltage readings on the board with the aid of a circuit diagram to determine the area of fault .. sorry not to able to give you better news but it looks like you need a service department is the unit still covered by Guarantee most are two years now ?.. regards Vortash

We had a power outage, now pixma Mx410 won't come on, any ideas?


Is pinter plugged into a power strip? Try plugging directly into wall. Make sure wall outlet is working correctly, try another item in plug in. Does printer have a power module or brick that is plugged into printer? That power module is there to protect your printer during a power surge, it may need to be reset. Is there a light on that brick or power module? If so, does it light up? If not, could be a bad power module. There is no such thing as "reset" button, so don't look there...It will have to be reset in a series of ways for an "external" module.
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, disconnect the cord from the power module.
  4. Wait 15 seconds.
  5. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, reconnect the power cord to the power module.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  7. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  8. Check to see if the power module or the power cord has an indicator light and if it is on
For an internal module:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. Wait 15 seconds.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  5. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  6. Check to see if the power module has an indicator light.
Not sure if this will help you..but worth a try.....

It sounds that your TVs' timer function is set to 'ON' for 15 minutes time. Check it, and make it 'Off'. Refer its user manual for details.

Power box light is blinking orange and sometime a steady red and console want come on.


Green Indicator Light:

The default indicator light is green. When the Xbox 360 power supply light is green it means that there are no problems with your power supply. However, if you are having problems and the power supply light is green, this means that the console is faulty and you need to contact Xbox 360 support.

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one.

Red Indicator Light:

If the xbox 360 power supply light is red, then there is something wrong with the power supply connection. If this is the case, try the same solution as listed above of unplugging the power supply from the console, unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and unplugging the power supply from the power cord. Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If the indicator lights are still red, then there is a fault with the power supply. If this is the case, contact customer support about getting a new one.

No Indicator Light:

If the XBox 360 power supply light is not illuminating at all, this usually means that the Xbox power supply is not connected to the wall outlet correctly. On the other hand, it might also be a fault with the power supply or the power cord.

Either way, try the same solution as listed above for the red indicator lights. If you still don't see any lights illuminated after unplugging and then reconnecting everything, you'll need to contact customer support about getting a new power supply.

Green and Orange Indicator Light:

If the indicator light is flashing green and orange, this may mean that the console does not detect the AV Pack.

Disconnect and then reconnect the Xbox AV Pack. Make sure the connections are firmly connected. Turn your Xbox back on.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, try another AV pack if one is available.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, you'll need to contact Miscrosoft Customer support.

Flashing Orange Indicator Light:

If your Xbox console's indicator light flashes orange, this means the internal components have overheated and the Xbox has automatically shut down to prevent damage.

Turn off the console and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.

To prevent the Xbox from overheating in the future, make sure that it's not placed in a closed cabinet or on carpet. It's best to get the Xbox elevated off the ground where the PSU can have maximum heat release.

You'll also want to make sure the Xbox is not located near a heat source like the back side of a television, computer, monitor, or other electrical device.

Please follow the below troubleshooting steps: 1. If the Television is plugged into a surge protector, remove it from the surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. 2. Try connecting the TV to a different AC wall outlet. 3. Try power resetting the TV. To Reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power ON the TV. 4. If the issue still persists, TV will require service.

Tv turns off after 15 minutes of use


For bobby11 and luis, it is the power supply. Part Number EAY34797001 in the 42" and EAY34796801 in the 32". This is a known problem, and somebody should start a Class Action against LG over this one. Part is available online and easy to swap out for anyone with the most basic knowledge.
