Rollo, broken solder connections either in low voltage or sweep section of the board, probably in the horizontal out put area but could be anywhere. If you want to attempt the fix the board has to come out and you`ll need a bright light as well as a good magnifying glass to find the broken joints and then re-solder them, Be certain your tv`s AC cord is removed from the wall outlet before doing any soldering, good luck, BMW Rider

I have had some issues with high ESR readings in the capacitors in the scaler circuits in those units. Do you have an ESR meter to check the caps in circuit?

LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously

I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.

This is usually caused by damaged capacitors (Akai uses very cheap components) on the power supply board. There are nine large electrolytic caps that have to be replaced. Hope this helps you out.

Pulsating power LED. No picture. No sound

Either the main smoothing capacitor or the voltage regulator are faulty. You may find that the power LED will stay on after pulsating for several minutes, at which time you can switch the TV on.
