Changing input source on AKai PT50DL14

How do you change the input source on the above named TV. My TV is the one listed above NOT what is in the Product Line. This is TV is connected to DISH network. While trouble shooting the receiver with Dish the input source got changed and I cannot find in the book how to change it back. I can get to Input on the TV; I can highlight the Input area BUT cannot change the input source from TV to AV receiver where it always has been and should be again. Therefore I have no picture. Dish was helpful enough to get me into this mess but does not know how to get it back to its original state. There should be a way to change the input source - I can find it, but not change it. The different input are gray indicating you cannot enter those areas..
Thanks
Suzanne

SOURCE: TV projects a pink/green shadow

Logically proceed one source at a time = disconnect all,
then hook-up one at a time or hook-up seperately.FYI, the
RF coax , composite and s-video inputs all share the same
circuitry, whereas component is a whole seperate video
processing circuit, with another difference between 480P and
1080 I . Sounds like you have a 1080 I problem, which might
be a little sister board..............................T.

Let me know..............Thanks.

Pt50dl14 i changed the lamp turned tv on. bulb lit then shut down within seconds. now the lamp and stand by/ temp. are flashing and tv will not turn on?


If Akai brand that is Samsung (they own the name).

I have a simple suggestion-----remove the lamp with cartridge (set unplugged) and look where the lamp faces-----the color wheel this model uses fails--I will attach a photo.

What you are looking for is: are any segments missing or the wheel even shattered?

These fail often and the set if wheel (turns at over 8,000 rpm) slows down, shattered, or missing pieces the set will detect that and turn the lamp off almost instantly.

This Akai TV is actually built by Samsung. You need to count the blinking lights on the front panel.This indicates an error code.With the code I can tell you what circuit has failed in the TV.

AKAI DLP PT50DL14, NO VISUAL OR AUDIO , SOME KIND OF GRINDING NOISE WHERE THE LAMP IS.. I HAVE TURNED IT OFF FOR 5 MINUTES AND STILL THE SAME PROBLEM


This is your color wheel bad it is a moving part please do not use you will damage it more. to fix this you will have to hire a tv repair shop. cost if only color wheel is around 450.00. and in some cases you have to replace the light engine which would be around 950.. to fix.

The screen is blue and says VIEDO 1 on it I have removed the batteries in the remote and unplugged the tv and unplugged the cable and I still can't get it to work???


You have to change the input / source setting on the TV. Samsung generally call this "source". Look for a button for that name on the remote, or on the front panel. Press it until it's set to "TV" or "CATV" or "ANT" and the picture returns. You may have to pause briefly while changing sources.

If you still can't change the source, please provide the model number.
