    Same problem here...just died and only a red led light blinking to show power. POS. No way to know if a fan is out or why it would refuse to turn on. Clueless.

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.

Will not power on, blinking red "power on" light


The power supply might have a shorted/defective diode(s), blown resistors, capacitors if the light is blinking on the front of the LCD.

Akai lct2701td, flat screen tv won't turn on.


Oh Dear. I had the same problem!! The Akai televisons are not well engineered-meaning that they tried to put too much in a little package. The problem is that the power supply is malfunctioning"supposedly". But I believe that the sad truth is that the whole motherboard is malfunctioning. I can suggest a few TEMPORARY solutions but they too are not guaranteed to work!
1. Bring the tv to a repair shop and tell them to check the power supply. If it is faulty -have it exchanged and it will work for <2 weeks.
2. Literally "bend" the television in multiple directions to find a sweet spot where the screen turns on.( wait for the diode tu tur green before doing this) this will slightly bend the motherboard in hopes of agitating it to turn the screen/bulbs on.

I am terribly sorry that you too have this ridiculous problem!!!!!! :-(
Good Luck!!! I am crossing my fingers for you!!

Red power indicator light is blinking


The flashing light indicates a short circuit inside the power supply circuitry. This type of repair is not a DIY without a multimeter, desoldering iron and hand soldering skills. I repair these power supplies, if you need further info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com

No Picture or operation


The red blinking light indicates a shorted part inside the TV. It normally happens when the power supply is trying to compensate the demand for proper or clean power to the rest of the boards. Most of these power supplies have defective capacitors and shorted zener diode(s) as well open surface mount resistors.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


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 LCT2701TD Won't turn on. Red light in front blinks.


There is a high power supply failure rate on these LCDs. The power boards are not longer being manufactured or not easy to find.

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.

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.
