    I was watching atv show and all of a sudden tv went off with orange blinking light and speaker had crackling sound.

  • Anonymous Aug 03, 2008

    I have two TV and both TV's went bad within 1 month of one another. This happened during their 13 or 14 month, so the warranty had lapsed.



    Where can I get a power supply?

  • pinchine Aug 24, 2008

There are about 16 to 17 capacitors that are a common fail point on this TV. I can repair your power supply board with new high quality capacitors and recondition the board to work like new for $100 + S/H, you simply have to send me the power supply module and turn around is approx 2 days from the time I receive the package to the time its out the door. Approx 8 business days according to the delivery carrier you use.

I found Radio Shack carries 1000 uf 35v caps and 470 uf 35v caps. Frys carries the 1000 uf 16v and 470 uf 16v caps. I replaced the 25v caps with 35v caps and did not need to replace the main caps. Understand that you can go a little higher on the voltage specs even 50v if needed and you wont have any problems.Also, if you dont have either of these stores near you . You can get them from Newark Electronics Online.

Alright, I have all the capacitors taken off the power source (just at the one end), but now, I don't have the ability to get them soldered on - the working space is so tiny!

Twizted, how do I contact you for your service?

I too have an Akai LCT2715 27" and this afternoon while watching TV I too lost my screen and got the same strange popping in my speakers. After over an hour on hold I was put on the phone with a Customer Service Manager who informed me that because I have owned this TV for 4 months past the year mark I am on my own and Akai will not do anything to help me. They also let me know that if I wanted I could bring my television to thier service center 45min from my home, but that too would be my responsibility because as they had pointed out before I was 4 months over my 1 year warranty.

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.

Akai lct2715 power supply repair needed. Please respond. Failure appears to have occured over several days. First picture had distortion at edges. Then blue AKAI screen would light but picture was not in...

I very highly doubt that is merely a power supply problem,I would suspect that it is a small signal board (aka scaler board) or at the very least,have the inverter boards checked

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
