You don't mention using your SOURCE button to select HDMI.You have to put your akai in the right source selection by using the source button on the remote or the source button on the right side of the TV. I hope this helps. SW

1. You cannot get and HDMI and component on one cable. One is anaglod, and HDMI is digital. Use the component, the difference isnt. They are both HDTV compatible signals. S-Video is terrible, its really no better than the old-fashioned coaxial cable. After you connect the two, be sure you go into the settings on your home theater and set the output to component, progressive scan, and the the resolution your TV supports. The resolution is clearly stated in the user manual and on the box. It is probably 720p or 1080i. (Dont worry, most HD devices will revert back to the settings if they dont work. So if it goes blank or you see undesired picture, just wait up to 15 seconds and it will revert your settings. Once you are successful, the menu will ask you if you can see the picture, use the remote to select yes.)

2. The remote came possibly with an auto scanning feature, but at least has a code entry mode to program 
your brand of tv to work with your remote. Look at the list of codes based on category and brand in the documentation for the home theater system. Use all the codes available for your brand unil the tv responds to the code you entered. This is very brief but the manual has very specific instructions on what to press, step by step.

And the last question is absolutely yes, the picture is about 6x better than the regular tv standard which is 480i

480i is an interlaced picture, and its 320x480 dots of color to display your picture, interlacing is basically using one horizontal line to act as 2 by quicly alternating what it draws twice per frame. Thats why standard tv seems to "jiggle" in place
 Progressive Scan has a solid image, every time, that automatically doubles your quality. Definitely, you want your resolution to be as high as the tv supports and you will be satisfied.

SOURCE: HDMi ( no signal, not supported) doesn't work with Dmr-Ez47v

Any HDMI cable manufactured in the last couple of years should all be HDMI 1.1 compliant, your problem is most likely the logic board in the TV itself or the HDMI connector on the logic board has a bad connection..

Have you tried hooking-up a standard DB15 VGA cable to the AKAI TV and your laptop?

If this works your problem is in the TV and will most likely have to be repaired to receive the HDMI signal since your Panasonic DVR and your laptop are not recognized by the HDMI input on the TV.

Good luck!

How much experience do you have with electronics repair? I have repaired mine from this problem but the solution would be difficult to describe here. If you a patient I may be able to help but I'm afraid to write this here for fear of injury to somebody.

Pdp4295ed will not turn on. I can hear a bump thru the right speaker but nothing else


This is the "Akai PDP4295ED - 42" plasma TV", that we're talking about?.. Has is 'fallen off of the back of a truck', or had you -actually- purchased it?! What is their support saying, in that case? :)

Maybe get a starting point... From where you can search for a manual, or support, such as:

Trying to connect a sony home theatre system so that the akai television plays through the home teatre speakers. I used an hdmi cable, but the tv still only plays threough the tv.


The HDMI jacks on the TV are HDMI in. Thus to get the theater system to play the sound, you use the HDMI out from your set top box to the HDMI in of the Sony theater system and then the HDMI out of the theater system to the TV. (Connecting the HDMI in of the TV to the HDMI in of the home theater system will not work.)

If you are watching OTA TV or a direct coax cable connection, you need to hook up the TV audio out to the home theater system audio in to use these speakers with the TV. Then you probably need to set the TV to use the external speakers. This will probably be in the Menu under Audio. (Toggle external speakers on/off)

The Akai LCT2785TA has RCA audio out (1/4" red and white jacks). If your home theater system has RCA audio in, just get a patch cable (MM ends on each side of the cable). If your home theater system only has digital audio inputs, you will need a converter. http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/audio-converters-extenders/analog-to-digital-digital-to-analog/1t-ap-216/prod1TAP216.html is a link to one appropriate converter.

I hope this helps.

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

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.
