You do not mention if you have unpluged the tv from the wall,is the easiest thing to try,if the set resets and still does not open the tray you can still force it open it manually but very carefully just to remove the dvd,if you can not force it open by pulling evenly in both extremes of the tray and you feel the dvd still is not coming out even with the tray open,dont go further and get help from a servicer,we do not want to break the mechanism.(set should be unplug )You can also remove the back cover and see if the main conector to the dvd player can be unplug,if it does you can leave it unplug and try turning the set on.This information might help you make a decision but the best solution will be to disassembly the dvd and remove the stuck dvd without forcing anything.The set is faily new and is worthed the repair.Let Us know how it goes.

I need a solution to my problem, can u help me please?


1) Always post the brand and hopefully the model number in a hardware query.

2) I suspect you have changed the "source" and are not looking at a Digital TV signal. By source, I am referring to AV, Digital,
Component, etc.. The TV would not be responding to the Remote possibly because you have set the remote to not work with a TV but with the video player. Press "TV" on the remote while pointing it at the TV, then try to change the channel.

3) The "Making Life Easy" has to be connected with a brand of either the TV or the DVD player (or accessory device). If it is the logo of the player, you simply do not have the TV set up to receive a digital TV signal but rather the signal from the player.

I do not know if this is because you have cabled the two together wrongly or done what I refer to in my second point above. If it is because the cables are in the wrong sockets, your setup manual may help (or just give you a headache.)

4) At some point, I might have tried to see if just running the outside TV cable to the TV, not through a DVD player or device, would make a difference IF I disconnected all the cables to the DVD player first. That might eliminate the TV as the source of the problem.

5) the Good news is that this sounds likely either a wrong setting or misplaced cables, both which are fixable.

6) IF you do not have the setup or user manuals, you can go to the brand site on the web and search for using the model number and the site may have manuals which can be downloaded. If not, the manuals may be googled for using the brand name and model number and "user manual" in a single search. The brand site may even have some additional support service.

How do I program for playing DVD's on the TV?


If the tv has a built in dvd player, you should simply be able to put a dvd in the drive and the tv will auto-switch to the dvd player.

If you have an external dvd player, ensure it is plugged into the tv.
On the remote you should have a button that says either "Source" or "Video"
Press this button until the video input your dvd player is plugged into is highlighted, then press "OK" or "enter" (some tv remotes have one button that highlights and also selects the input)
You may also press the "Menu" button and check in the "video" section if your tv supports "Auto input switching" This will allow your tv to automatically switch to whichever device (dvd player, game console) is turned on while the tv is on.

Please provide make / model of tv and possibly dvd player for further help.

Video Does not work on New Magnavox TV


Hi, it sounds like your problem is that you've selected the wrong "video input" for your DVD player. Your new television most likely has at least 3-4 (sometimes 6-7) different inputs for video. With your DVD player connected and turned on, press the "Source" button on your TV to cycle through the different inputs. Be sure to wait 2-4 seconds between selections to give your TV enough time to switch inputs. If your DVD player has "color coded" output cables, it's most likely a "component" video connection. See if one of your video inputs on the TV is called "Component". Some other video types are Video, DTV, HDMI, SVideo, Component, Composite, RGB, PC Input, etc...

It is not picking up the channels , i have cable and no channnels are working at all,not even the local channels.when am changing the channel it starts at DTV then TV,then CADTV,and then CATV


Sounds like you may have a stuck button on the tv causing uncontrolled selection or the Main bd is bad. Try hooking up a different source such as a DVD player to the same input on the tv. If the tv works ok you might have a bad cable Box as well.

No picture on tview dvd70ts


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

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.
