AKAI LCT2662 I have a 26 inch AKAI LCT2662 and it won't turn on, but a little red light will flash on the bottom right of the TV. Do you know what could be wrong?

    I had the same problem. When I looked at the power supply, I could tell by the rounded tops of the caps, that was the problem. I replace 19 caps in the power supply 4) 3300uf/35v, 8) 2200uf/25v, 6) 1000uf/10v, 1) 1000uf/16v

    I purchased them by mail from All Electronics. Now my TV works great.

    I have the same problem and another one I live in Gainesville, Fl and there is no one to fixit

    Generally speaking, should I assume that the capacitors that are slightly rounded on top to be bad and the ones that are flat good? Thanks for the help. Jan

Thanks for the advice, premtech. My LCT 2662 finally died from power supply problems after about two and a half years of use (it started giving us problems about six months ago). After reading the fixya.com recommendations to replace the capacitors on the power board, I decided to give it a try. I took the back off and was grateful to find the power board to be easily accessible. It was immediately apparent that several of the 2200uf capacitors had all bled out. There was crusty brown dielectric everywhere! The 1000uf appeared to be in good shape, but I ordered a new set of those anyway, along with the 2200uf/25v caps as well. I replaced all of the 2200uf caps first, since they were pretty much all fried, and tried the set out. The red power light came on, but when turning the unit on, I would just get a momentary flicker of the main screen, then nothing. After poking around the power board some more, I noticed that the four 3300uf caps also look to have melted out. So it was back to the Jameco website to order more parts. After replacing those four caps, the tv mercifully came back to life and has worked like new for about an hour now. I did not have to replace any of the 1000uf caps, but who knows how long the original ones will last. Oh well, I have to parts and know how to fix them if they do burn out. Thanks to all those who suggested the fixes. You sure know your stuff!

Power supply most likely... It's a common problem with this particular model and we've seen quite a number of them for exactly what you're describing.
You need to replace 19 caps in the power supply 4) 3300uf/35v, 8) 2200uf/25v, 6) 1000uf/10v, 1) 1000uf/16v and you can go a little higher in the voltage of each cap for greater reliability.
It's best to have an ESR meter also and test the remaining caps as well.

TV won't turn on


It sounds that, the memory IC to your TV has damaged. This IC can be located very near to main system control IC. A very small one, with 8 solder terminals. Even though it is very small, function of it while the TV works is great. The work is a semi-skilled one, and you must have some knowledge in electronics to proceed.

Our tv will not turn on


Our AKAI was just 14 months old. A few days ago, it died also. Blank screen, no sound, but the timer light will flash on a couple of times when you try to power it up. It even sounds like it wants to turn on. I paid a tech to come to my house $65 and it turns out to be the power supply $385. I checked other chat boards and many people are having this same problem with their AKAI 42" (PT4298HD) televsion. A real piece of junk this model! Sorry for the bad news!
