Do you have any kind of anteanna? Go into the user menu and choose channel, then choose air or cable then do a auto programming this will pull in all the channels that is available and save them to the memory

Hi Jim, your nearly there, all you need to do is go into the tv menu and move from DTV to the old type channel numbers and then find the bit where you can manually tune the tv to channel 68.
Have a sky menu picture running and you will see it come in.

Some channels are really shadowed at a angle

it's normal.

That's the bad part about LCD monitors, you have to be dead on eye level for the best picture.

Plasmas are better, but more expensive.

Akai pdp4273m1 has sound but no picture

I also have the akai PDP4273M1 tv with power and no picture and I looked at the power supply board inside and found 1 of the FMG26S chips blown and I am looking into replacing this to see if that does it and if not do a search for SANKEN PSC10165B M and for approx 170.00 you can get a whole new power supply for it and its easy to put in..

Yes, I seem to have fixed the problem on my Akai using some creative google finds. One of two things worked - not sure which:

1. Leave the set unplugged overnight - it must let the electronics reset when the residual charges clear
2. For my Akai (remotes and models vary), hit in remote's sequence quickly - brightness, freeze, menu, enter - this places you in some screen that offers a hard reset option. That didn't work right away, but i did it before the option above and then the set worked again.

My problem was really odd because it worked for the component inputs and you could see the video and TV signals inside the PIP windows, but not full screen as primary input. Why the TV could 'see' the signals in a PIP windows but not detect them as primary I have no idea.

Hello drifter,The design of the tv enables the auto search to detect any input signal you have selected. It could be TV (off air, video signals etc) so just switch on whatever inputs to the akai plasma befote you switch the Akai plasma on and let it do the work for you. just relax and watch the tv. recap 1. switch on the input eg video deck, DVD, VCD, or satellite dish. 2. switch on your AKAI PLASMA and 3. wait for the akai to search for your input signals. TRy this simple procedure and if it doesnt work just post back the message. The DON

Did you do a auto programming on it, also a $20.00 dollar anteanna would get you more channels also, go into the user menu and choose channel, choose either air or cable and do a auto programming on it, this will save all the channels that you can pull from using rabit ears

Check the cables that run from the main board to the switches and the manual buttons on the set, sounds like a cable needs to be reseated, or could be pinched or crimped
