Question about Akai LCT2701TD Television

Flashing RED Light

The TV was working fine and then lost the all functions. The Red/Green ready/standby light is now flashing red. I have unplugged the TV, replugged to a different outlet...and of course the TV is out of warranty.

HELP
I live in San Diego and don't even know where to call for a service on the LCT2701TD AKAI

    I'm having the same exact problem watching TV and it just went out and the red light is just blinking. Please inform when you come up with a solution.

    I also bought the AKAI LCT2701TD from a Costco in San Diego (Carlsbad) about 2+ yrs ago. Today, May 14, 2008 the set stopped working and the red light is flashing. I also tried unplugging and powering on/off from the toggle on back of the set, but with no success. It's very odd that 3 of us have had this same problem at the same time. I hope there's a simple solution as this set was not cheap.

    This is VERY coincidental! I live in San Diego as well. When I came home this afternoon (MAY 16th), and my LCT2701TD was exhibiting the same symptoms, Flashing red light, and no power to the TV. I bought my TV at COSTCO in La Mesa. I also have ever had any previous problems.

    I am having the exact same probelm with Akai LCT2701TD. Also bought 2 years ago at Costco (boston). Stopped working today with red light blinking. Couldn't turn it back on. Tried unplug and plug. Didn't work.

    I have the exact same problem too. The TV was on and then just shut off and I noticed the blinking red lights on the front lower panel. I to tried unplugging and replugging. It happened 6-12-08. Our TV was purchased at Costco in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We actually purchased two of them so I bet our other will have the same problem very soon. Hope we can find a cheap fix for it.

    yes same problem red flashinglight no power up

  • stevelee Oct 31, 2008

    I have exactly the same problem.  And yes, my TV was also purchased from Costco.  Can we go back to Costco; surely this is a manufacturer's defect.  There is too much coincidence to suggest otherwise.  Anyone care to comment?  Did anyone find a way out of this; either returning or got a replacement?


    I am going to check with Costco.

  • joe_breshear Nov 19, 2008

    I also have the blinking RED LIGHTS !! Is it true AKAI doesnt sell parts for this model anymore?? Maybe the company knows that theres a design flaw and they aint worth fixing!! Please let me know if anyone finds a fix. I use to really like Akai products but I dont think I will ever buy anything with AKAI on it if they cant come up with a FIX for this!

  • peteflagg Nov 21, 2008

    I have the same problem - has anybody had any luck going back to Costco ? I got mine in March 2006 and it just died ! The blinking red light !! No one seems to have an answer ?

Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to blink...got no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...


Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.

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.

TV not turning on.


Mine was doing that and I ordered a replacement power supply board for it and now it work. It's fairly easy to replace.
