    I also need to know if the AKAI model CFTD2085 has a digital tuner or an analog tuner. The owners manual does not say. Nor in the specifications section does it say that it is ATSC. If it is, then it is a digital tuner.

If connected to cable or satellite your tv will work after digital conversion occurs. If using an antenna, look up a local TV station to see if they're already broadcasting in digital. Most are. Enter that DIGITAL channel # using your remote. If you get a picture, you don't need a converter box.

I have a toshiba tv model md20q41 that I bought in aug, 2005 - do I need a converter box to get digital? I f so - where can I get one cheap


Yes, you will need a digital converter box for this model. There are some available on amazon.com for about $50, or you can pick one up at your local electronics store like Best Buy for about the same price or slightly higher.
Here is the official government website about digital conversion, which should answer any more questions you have: http://www.dtv.gov/buyconverter.html

Akai cftd 2088 TV comes on . goes off after about 5 min, won't come on again for some period (an hour maybe?) - is this likely to be an overheating part, or what?


You're might correct that your unit goes to overheating which produce an out of regulation on the supply. This is mostly caused of the ff:
1. Leaky filter capacitor on the regulator section - this will affect the regulation of supply which causes subsequent shutdown 2. Leaky volt regulator IC - it will overheat fast. 3. Leaky filter capacitor on the system supply.
Diagnosing the faulty parts is not diy so i've advice you to look for a qualified tech to do the job.

Digital converter


If you recieve your signal on this TV over the Air (Rabbit Ears) then Yes you will need a digital Converter for this TV. If you are hooked up to Cable or a Satalite Dish, your TV will continue to work without the converter box.

Can you help me here?


Near as I can tell, this set does NOT have a digital broadcase tuner. You will need a converter for the new over-air broadcasts.
