The led is blinking due to fault in power supply board.
On the power supply board there are some capacitors and ICs .if any of those gets short or faulty the power supply board will create problems and the red light will start blinking. The components on the board needs to be checked with the help of multimeter and continuity tester.And the faulty components needs to be replaced with the help of soldering iron. the procedure to check the power supply board is as follows:---- 1) You are going to need a Phillips ( X ) Screwdriver for this procedure. The first thing you will want to do is find a suitable location to disassemble the TV. Try to find somewhere with plenty of space to work and preferably somewhere you will not have any hazards such as static (like carpet)
Lay the TV Flat on its face (picture side down) and remove the 4 screws from the back of the TV holding the base on.
Next you will want to process to remove the screws around the back cover. There are 12 screws you will need to remove (refer to picture for locations).
Carefully remove the back panel of the TV. It may snag on the coaxial connector so be careful.

2) Once you have the back off of the TV you can see the Main board and power supply covers.You will now need to remove the left (right side from the back) speaker cover to allow access to two of the screws holding the Power Supply Cover in place. This is easy and pretty straight forward and has 8 screws around the perimeter.
Once you have the speaker cover off you should be able to access the screws on the side and you will also want to remove the other screws from around the sides of the cover. Some TV's I have worked on only had 6 where others had 7 or 8. Just make sure to remove all of the screws before trying to remove the cover.
Once you have the cover removed you will see the Power supply. Remove the wiring harnesses from the power supply board. You will have 4 cables at the top of the power supply and one main power input at the bottom. The main power input may have some glue securing it in place. Simply cut this with a knife or pull it loose.
Once you have the cables off of the power supply you can remove it from the TV via the screws on the 4 corners. Be careful not to damage anything as you remove these screws. You now have the Power Supply removed from the TV.
you can now get the power supply repaired from any local tv repair technician.or get new replacement power supply from the service center.or from online stores like : www.partstore.com or from www.shopjimmy.com
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

My akai television won't turn on


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

NEVER!... Never, ever junk it.

AKAI LCT2715 will not turn on gives blinking


This series of TVs has a famous issue with the power board (part number MLT166A or similar). Several capacitors and zener diodes burn out causing some resistors to burn as well. If you are capable of doing component level repairs check capacitors on the board and zeners Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5 and resistors around them. If you prefer to spend hundred bucks and simply buy the working power board for it - ebay is your answer.

Lcd akai 2715 blinking red light


The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

Akai LCT2715 No Power


I have a different thread going, but saw yours and had a question. Is your light blinking steady and then off? or is it a blinking erraticly or even flickering? My bad caps (15 of them) were all on the secondary side of the PSU. I have been told (thanks to Jaimie Hernandez) if you have a steady blinking, then it is very likely that you have a bad zener diode Z3(27v/1Watt) shorted in the primary side of the power board. If that diode is shorted, it's very likely that 2 10 ohms resistors might be open, these resistors are connected to the cathode of Z3. Also check for bad caps on the Primary side.

I had a huge incentive to fix the TV, it is my wife's TV and she has been in my Man Cave since it died. How about that incentive.

Good luck

Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.
