    Folks, this person is telling the truth. My first PDP4225M died in January 2008. When I wnet to turn it off, it shocked me, and then no loger turned on. It took me 6 months and 1 - 2 phone calls PER WEEK to get them to give me a new set. No fooling. My replacement did the same thing 3 weeks ago in March 2009. However you can no longer call Akai AND they do not return emails. I love this monitor, but DO NOT BUY ONE!



    Thanks,

    Eben

the fact that you got shock is because something is not right inside the tv. You need to have that tv check because a manufacturer will not fabricated a tv that can electrocute anyone, specially when you turn the volume. Static electricity is always present in front of any tv that might be the cause of why you got shock. By removing your coat, and touch some metallic object you may get electrocuted, because of static electricity. Please, I want you to have that tv check, I can check that tv for you. I felt something is wrong inside the tv, and something is loose inside like pennies and toys objects. That's my impression. My e-mail address Stevebuy31@hotmail.com

Volume automatically goes to maximum on TCL TV


The volume (+) button on the TV is stuck or soiled if the volume automatically increases when the TV is turned on. To find out:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Press and hold the volume (-) button on the TV then turn it on.
  3. If the volume doesn't automatically increase, you have a stuck button.
  4. If it does increase, you have a faulty key control board.
  5. In either case, you have to replace the key control board.
To find it out further:
Warning: Beware of electric shock.Please do not proceed if you do not have the skill to do the following.
  1. Unplug the TV.
  2. Let it stand for 15 minutes to allow voltages to drain completely to avoid the risk of electric shock.
  3. Remove the screws securing the TV's back cover and pull it off.
  4. Disconnect the cable that runs from the main board to the control key board.
  5. Turn the TV on using the remote.
  6. In this manner you can use the remote control to run the TV while waiting for the control key replacement board.
To do a hard reset of the TV, unplug it and let it sit for 2 hours or long enough to completely drain the internal voltages.

Hello Blindrid,
What I would suggest you do is Press your MENU button on the tv remote, Then down to SOUND and then Turn the AUTO VOLUME to OFF. Then come out of the menu screen.
Just to check that it has all work correctly. turn you volume upto a certain number for example 25
Then turn your TV off the turn it back on. Wait until it is displaying a picture then press the volume button Once either up or down and you should see that it will go to 24 or 26 depending on what button you pressed for the volume. This will keep your volume set to whatever you had it on before you turned the tv off.

Hope this Helps Please leave a thumbs up.

Cheers

,,always unplug the set from AC,leave off a few minutes,,then re-plug back in,,that resets the micro--also,it could be the volume up button stuck-that would kill the other keys from working--you could try with a tooth pick to pull VOL UP back----THIS IS DANGEROUS --SHOCK HAZZARD!!! if someone is technically incline,with the back of the tv off,,turn set on and unplug the keyboard plug from the main circuit board while the set is playing--then use the remote and see if the fuctions returned-THIS IS DANGEROUS-SHOCK HAZARD---I REPEAT -DANGEROUS!!!! PLEASE BE CARFULL,if that cures the problem-you have a bad keyboard-you can just leave it unplugged and use the remote----JUST BE CARFULLLLLLL
