Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.

    If you know electronics you can try to fix it, but if not, you risk severe injury.

AKAI LCT2715 will not turn on gives blinking


This series of TVs has a famous issue with the power board (part number MLT166A or similar). Several capacitors and zener diodes burn out causing some resistors to burn as well. If you are capable of doing component level repairs check capacitors on the board and zeners Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5 and resistors around them. If you prefer to spend hundred bucks and simply buy the working power board for it - ebay is your answer.

Once you have the power supply removed you can ship it to me for repair. E-Mail me at (twizted at dragonmodz dot net) for shipping address and to discuss any other questions you may have.

Lcd akai 2715 blinking red light


The 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 LCT2716 Flat Panel TV


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.

Power light blinks red - tv will not come on


to let you all know that Im having the same problem with my tv.. amber then red red red red... and popping sounds from speakers... Its because they use cheap parts there are 19 capacitors in the power supply (DONT RECOMMEND FOR NON EXPERIENCED PEOPLE) the 2 main filter capacitors are 100uf450v the ones in mine are just fine then there are 3x 1000uf16v, 2x 470uf16v, 3x 470uf25v, 2x 1000uf25v, 6x 1000uf35v, and 1x 470uf35v... Im in the process of replacing those capacitors. about half of them are leaking and 1 is blown... very dangerous for anyone messing around back there.. just thought i would let everyone know that its a 20 dollar repair if you know what you are doing i got my caps at marvac.com

any other questions email pfctmitsubishi@yahoo.com
