    Mine has not worked for a year, possibly two; think it may need system reset, and can not find reset for system listed on outside of case; think I have to pull back to get to system reset button, or need to know how to reset system from outside without killing power

    I have the same exact problem and am mad as hell. This TV is less than 2 yrs old. Have you gotten any response from the manufacturer? What does Costco say? I am very frustrated with the lack of response.'\

The only 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 lct 2070 tv switch does not turn on tv-no sound-no tv


Most failures on this TV are due to defective power supplies. If the TV does not turn ON, you should replace the power supply.
Check this website to buy the power supply adapter and hopefully that should fix the TV.

Blinking red lights


The failure of a blinking light is from a defective power supply. It could be a zener diode that is faulty, rectifier and a few capacitors as well.
I repair these power supplies. If you need more info send me an email to jah2mil@hotmail.com

Flashing RED Light


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.

No picture ; no sound


the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.

I bought my Tv at Costco and all I did was take it back! without a box and a receipt, but they did check my Costco member card after all was done they gave me store credit. Then I bought a better brand and I really hope it will last me more then TWO YEARS!!!! Good Luck...

AKAI LCT2701td TV No Picture


I had the same problem; the blinking light problem is caused by a bad power supply. It try’s to power up but senses a failure so it shuts down and just keeps repeating this process. I troubleshot the problem and found that zener diode Z3 (27volt 1 watt) was shorted and zener resistor forgot designation (2 surface mount 10 ohm resistors in parallel) were open. The zener is under a heat sink so it is hard to see. Also there were 4 1000uf capacitors that were bulging so I changed them as well. I got the parts from digikey for 20 bucks and its now working fine. This was a lower cost TV at the time of purchase so it seem the manufacture used low quality parts and I would suggest trying to return the TV to Costco before fixing it. Good luck.
