Question about Akai PDP42Z5TA 42 in. Plasma Television

Open Question

The volume button seems to be stuck down, on the tv itself, not the remote. Every time I turn the volume up, the volume decreases to zero as soon as i release the volume up button. Any suggestions.

SOURCE: I have a 32" HD AKAI TV that keeps turning itself off

If the service shops didn't charge people $200 to fix this I would not post.. But since they do - here's the $8 fix.

If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.

Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.

Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.

This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

SOURCE: Volume Control

check the up volume button on the set. it sounds like it is stuck in the on position. You can open the back and disconnect the wire harness to the control buttons. This will verify if the volume up button is the problem.

SOURCE: Volume turns up or down on its own

yes direct into the buttons the WD40 is the best thing i've ever seen, that will not damage anything you can spray it without fear and then try to activate the buttons a few times, of course with the tv off.

Bush lcd42f1080p100hz remote will not turn tv on


I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!

When i turn the tv. on, the volume line appears all the way to zero. if i turn the volume up, it goes up but when i release the up button the volume goes down all by itself.


It sounds like one of the volume down buttons is stuck in the activate position. The same as if you were holding the down volume button continuously. It could be either the volume down button on the TV or the remote. I would try remove the batteries of the remote then adjust the volume by the TV buttons.


If the volume doesn't go back down then the remote is the problem. In order to fix the remote you may need to take it apart. This is normally easy to do just locate any screws that may be holding the remote together. If you don't see any screws then you will need to pry the two sections apart. Separate the circuit board and rubber buttons and clean them both with some rubbing alcohol and reassemble it. If it still has the volume issue you may need to replace it.

If the problem persists with the remote deactivated then it's the volume button located on the TV. That is a little more difficult. You can try wiggling the button or some canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to blow it clean. However it may need to be disassembled to gain access to the switches for proper cleaning.
Hope this helps.

Volume decreasing to zero by itself


Have you looked to see if the Button on the tv itself is stuck in. Press it and you might be able to feel for it sticking. If this is the case you may want to try a baby wipe or something similar to try and sort this out. (dont use a sopping wet cloth)

hope you get this sorted.

No volume without holding remote button


The volume on either on your Remote or Tv is stuck down. This can be caused by spilling Liquid onto the remote (we all do it) you can test which one it is.

take the battery's out of the remote and turn the volume up via the Tv volume button on the telly. If this stays at the required Volume Then this means that the - volume button is stuck down on the remote. Try and clean it with something like a baby wipe or something similar (not a sopping wet cloth) If this does not work then you may need a new remote.

Hope this Helps

TV Volume turns down by itself - Philips 29PT8319 Matchline 27"


Most likely the volume down button on the front of the TV or the switch that it activates is sticking. Should be an easy fix otherwise.
