AKAI MX 150 - connection with DVD

I am trying to connect a DVD player to my Akai MX 150 TV. I have the AV cables in and the DVD player does power up and the display indicates that the DVD is playing (the numbers show on the display); however the picture does not appear on the TV screen. Do I need to have my TV tuned to a certain channel or is there another cable that I need to connect? Hope somebody can help. Thanks.

SOURCE: Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.

I think your Video Drum needs to be replaced since it's bad. You can get replacement Video Drums on the Internet.

SOURCE: how do i tune tv channels?

I am afraid thatyou need the original remote to access tuning universal remotes will not give you this option. An original remote will probably be very expensive check with your local TV dealer.

ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark

Can I use an Akai AD163x just as a DVD?


No! the DVD player is hard wired into your Tv combo and requires the DVD circuits to run the set making it a critical addition.

It is a general question just try my idea to connect to the DVD player channel.
In the remote you may find any of the below button, press it.
1. DTH 2. DVD 3. VIDEO
If not just call the customer care help line to assist through online..
(Before that remember one thing you have to connect the dvd player wire in the TV to activate the DVD channel)
Thank you.

I have a Akai DVDrw125. I've never been able to connect it between the cable signal in and the TV. It has S-Video in and S-Video out. The manual is worthless. I shouldn't have to switch the S-video cable...


The way I have it set up - cable box out to AKAI cable in, video and audio out of AKAI into TV via RCA. AKAI on channel 3, tv on RCA input. Change channels on Cable box, works fine. To watch a video, just put it in an hit play. Might have to change sources on AKAI if this is not working for u.

NO sound and NO cable signals


Is your tv connected to your cable box through HDMI, AV, or component?
_____________________________

If its through HDMI then your cable carrier needs to load updated frimware in your box to communicate properly with your 2005 tv. The firmware loaded in your cable box needs to be "reverse compatible" for first generation HDMI from your 2005 tv. If your using AV or component hook-up and there's no sound then re-check all of your audio settings within the tv's menu. Also recheck the cable-wire your using and proper input/output ports.



ON your dvd player, is your tv connected through component, AV(rca) or HDMI?

If its through "component" then you need an extra audio cable to and from the DVD and tv.

Progressive scan


Approach 1: Try unplugging the DVD player from the wall for an hour, then plug it back in. It may or may not reset to the factory default settings, which might put it back to "interlaced" output.

Approach 2: When a DVD player is switched to progressive scan, it uses outputs different from the coax cable "TV out" and the COMPOSITE outputs (often yellow, white and red RCA jacks. If you have the proper cables, you can connect them to both the DVD player and the TV, then cycle through the AKAI TV's "source" settings to switch the TV to the new cable input location.

For example, if the DVD player has "component" outputs (marked Y, Pb, and Pr) hook up RCA plug cables between those jacks and the AKAI TV's Y, Pb, and Pr jacks. Connect the Y to Y, the Pb to Pb, and the Pr to Pr, of course. The LCT3285TA has two sets of these jacks. Either will do, but note if you use YPbPr1 or YPbPr2. Once this is done, push the source button on the side of the TV (or on the TV's original remote) until it shows YPbPr1 or (...2 if that's what you connected). If the DVD player is on, you should now see the DVD menu or the picture from the DVD. Now you can use the DVD remote to switch back from progressive to interlaced video. The picture may go blank at this step.

Now push the TV's source button again until you see "3" or whatever channel you had been using in the upper left of the TV screen. You should see the DVD output picture (menu) again. Back to normal.

If your DVD player doesn't have YPbPr connections, it may have a HDMI or DVI jack.
The AKAI TV also has a HDMI input, you *could* get and HDMI cable (or DVI to HDMI cable if the DVD player doesn't have HDMI), hook it up, then cycle through the TV's source inputs until you see the HDMI in the upper left... in the manner I've just described.

Final Note: The progressive scan output of your DVD will actually give you a much better picture on your AKAI TV than its interlaced output. To take advantage of that, you'll have to hook up YPbPr or HDMI cables between player and TV and switch sources when you want to watch DVDs instead of TV programs. You may need additional cables to send the stereo audio output from the player to the TV for the progressive source hookup.
