If the standby indicator flickers,there may proberbly be a faulty carbon resistor in the power supply board.

Most likely your convergence board is bad. If you have any electronic repair experience, you should be able to locate the convergence driver board. There will be two large black IC's mounted to a metal plate and they will start with the letters STK. Disconnect this board and if the set starts up, it is bad. There should be a number on the board. This will be a Samsung Number. Go to and enter the part number into the right box and see if it is still available. If it is not, you could always go to, get their telephone number and call them about rebuilding your board. Good Luck!

Akai TV remote is not working correctly

I don't think the Akai remote is designed to work with cable or satellite service. I have to use both remotes & I have Direct TV.

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes then plug it in and try the remote again. I had the same problem shortly before my Akai LCT2721AD quit working altogether. Three 1000uF capacitors blew in the power supply. Bought 3 new ones and replaced the blown ones myself rather than pay over $100 for a new power supply. Works fine now.

Power surge, TV will not turn on

Power surges are extremely unpredictable, they can damage everything inside the tv, from the power supply printed circuit board, to the main printed circuit board. Normally the power supply takes alot of the damage from these things, so check over the power supply for any damaged components, any burnt out parts on printed circuit board, and also check the fuse. Good luck.
