When I'm getting ready to turn on my AKAI LCD TV first thing in the morning using my remote control it will not come on. I have to unplug the TV, wait a few seconds, then plug it back. The TV will now come on using the remote control.
Re: TV will not come on by using the remote control
I think I have an answer. This comes from someone from the Geek Squad. She said that somehow the TV was turned off at the TV and not the remote and that has reset the system . Try pushing the "STAND BY' button and everything should work as normal. I will find out for myself in the morning. Good luck to us both !

Universal remote controls (like the one for your comcast cable box in which it allows you to control other devices) have "the most popular" IR codes programmed inside of it. When you type in the numbers "10812,10702, etc" you are telling the remote to use that particular IR code within its "database"
The key thing to know is that universal remotes do not have every code, just the most popular. If you have tried all of the codes listed in the manual for you model TV there's not much you can do.
Try searching for a code. Some brand names, such as "Akai" may have other manufacturers parts inside of it, Searching usually is done by going through certain key-presses on the remote to try all of the codes available.
Buy another Universal remote, not all remotes are created equal as some have mode IR codes built in than others, if you have an odd brand TV, it may be more difficult to come across one that works.
Buy a learning universal remote, although usually more expensive these remotes will allow you to "learn" the IR codes from your old remote to the universal remote.
I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my
comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3
universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack
universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your
xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad
if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai
was 11676. Take care...
Go to Tigerdirect.com order Logitech Harmony 520 universal remote it is compatible with your AKAI CFTD2011 same as mine. Phone number is 800-800-8300. I also called logitech that makes this remote and it is compatible..........finally a remote that works.............
