Can't get anything on the screen

I was watchin TV and started to change over to watching a DVD when I lost everything on the screen. I disconnected everything and rehooked it all up again... still no picture... could the bulb be gone... if so wouldn't I still get a signal and sound... I get nothing... I hear it click on and see the green light on the front, but not picture and no sound. Did the bulb go? Gene Summers

Unplug the power cord from the TV set and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes. Plug the power cord back into the TV and turn it on. It should work. This is not an uncommon problem for the Akai line.

That does ring some bells. Does the tv ever do this when you are watching anything else on the HDMI input or any other inputs, apart from the DVD player as the input source?

Can't play dvd player on JVC tv; I don't have a JVC remote.


I hooked up a Pioneer DVD player to my TV and when I play a DVD the volume cannot be controlled by the TV. It just plays at one level and on the louder side. When I'm watching regular TV and the DVD player is on and playing a disc I start to hear the DVD soundtrack at the same time as the whatever I'm watching on TV. I should not be able to hear anything until I switch over to Video 1. Any suggestions?
