I bought one of these tv's at a thrift store and it had the same problem, orange light blinking and static sound coming out of the speakers, no video at all.
The problem was the power supply board, this power supply has multiple outputs that feed the circuitry, 12V, 24v, 5V.
There was nine electrolitic capacitors I had to replace to fix it, all of them were bulged they are easy to spot, I measure one of them that was supposed to measure 1000uF but measured only 65uF. you can buy these from digikey for about 50 cents each, they need to be rated at 105 deg c and the profile has to be below the heat sink otherwise they will hit the top of the heat sink, the spacing between the leads has to be 5mm so they fit in the pcb. I replaced 3 1000uF/25v, 3 470uF/16v and 3 1000uF/16v and that fixed the problem, I bought this tv broken for 100 bucks fixed it with 6 bucks.
Good luck, don't perform repair if you are not familiar with dangerous AC voltage inside the TV.

    This is a great solution! I got an AKAI TV on the side of the road and the light blinks orange and the speakers pop really loudly. My TV only worked once (the first day I found it).
    Did you really only pay 6$ for your repair???
    Please send any additional info....
    I'd REALLY like it if you would tell me step-by-step how you repaired your TV!!
    If you did that, you'd be a life saver!!!!
    Thanks!

These TV's are prone to power supply failure. I can fix the power supply on this TV for approx $100 +s/h.... Contact me and all you have to do is remove the power supply and send it to me and I will repair it with high quality parts. Reinstall and you TV will be good as new...

What does a orange not blinking indcator light mean?


For your TV the power light will be red when the TV is turned off using the power button on the top of the TV. Press the power button on top of the TV if that does not work then try turning the power off at the power switch on the bottom of the TV then turn it back on after a minute ior so and see if you can turn it on using the power button.

MY 4YEARS AKAI LCD TV IS BLINKING ORANGE LIGHT BUT


Read the info from the link below to troubleshoot the failure with your LCD. Try not for force the LCD to work because for the time being it might only need the capacitors listed in the link but if the lights is blinking red, then the failure is a bit more complex to repair.
