The Tv turns off automatically after a couple minutes (LCT2785TA

The model is LCT2785TA and it turns off automatically after I turn it on for a couple minutes. I am using a receiver from Directv, so I was originally using RCA cables, then I tried the S-video cable from the receiver to the TV, and it worked perfectly for some hours, then I turned it off, and when I turned it on again, the same problem happened. Thanks for your ideas

    I wasn't using a surge protector, but I just bought one and it really didn't change anything, now that I see your solution I'm figuring out that I didn't really need one, but I'm just exploring possibilities. I also didn't mention that when the TV is on, but the source is not connected, and you can only see the blue screen, it could stay on for hours, it is just when the source is connected that it automatically shuts off, any other suggestions that you could give me ?

Sounds like the power supply is going out. Could have been shorted when there was a power surge. You using a power conditioner or surge protector???

Could be be due to overheating as well. Try to clean the outside casing and the inside using a can or compressed air. I don't think it is overheating but you never know and many home electronics turn have to avoid being damaged once they get hot enough.

Let me know any additional info and we can try to figure it out..

Thanks and hope to get you watching TV again soon!!!

    Have you tried any other input?? how is the DirecTV box working???

    The reasons why I ask about the surge protector is that if you had a power (lightening,power drop and sudden reset) it could have fried the power supply but this is unlikely since it is only when you connect to S-Video but still a possibility.

    Its still a good thing to keep use so the purchase is not bad but sorry if you did not want it.

    Are you confident with opening the TV?? this may be something a tech has to see. Let me know about what other inputs on it and how they are working. It could be a short in the video and may only be on the S-Video so you may be able to go around paying a tech or opening it yourself if its the case

AKAI 27 Model #LCT2785TA


The message you are seeing means that the tv is not receiving a signal from the source. Try hooking up a different source such as a DVD player or a Cable Box to that same input on the tv. If you have picture and sound then the problem is with the original source. If that does not work then you have a bad Main bd.

Need setup codes for Akai KC01-B2 to run with comcast remote


I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

I need help tv lcd akai model lct2785ta


You do know that this model TV takes about 5-10 seconds to come on after you press the on button, right?

Press it once to get the green LED, then wait. If it doesn't display the blue AKAI splash screen within 15 seconds, the TV is not working as it should.

Also remember that this model has two RF input jacks. As seen from the back of the TV, the jack on the far right is the one to use for analog TV, analog cable, coax out to TV from a cable box, or rf out from a vcr.

Don't use the one on the far left. It is for input to the ATSC OTA DTV tuner only.

Most likely there is a real problem with your TV, but in the video, you are pressing the on/off button in rapid succession. That will never work with this model.
