Hi, what happens when the DVD is not inserted and you switch to DVD mode ?
Since, its built in, you can open the TV and try disconnecting the DVD player unit and see how the response is. This will let us know if the problem is with the DVD player unit.

Unplug the unit for a couple of hours, that should reset the internal CPU. I would guess that there was a short duration spike that confused the system. A complete reset may take care of it.

    I believe that the problem may reside inside the DVD at the receiver.
    If you can open up the unit, you should see where the remote receiver
    resides on the front panel board. It will either be a small metal can
    with an opening in the front or what appears to be a dark LED. Try
    resoldering teh connections for that receiver. There are times when
    the receiver connections have a high enough resistance to prevent clear
    reading of the infra-red flashes.

    You have failure of the main power supply. THis could be a simple
    component failure or something further down the line that is preventing
    the pwoer suply from working properly.

  • mohammed marika thambi

    Even when off, the SCART port should be allowing the signals to pass.
    the DVD when off originally, remains in the
    mode where it controls the output port. I'd be looking at the default
    DVD settings for the SCART ports. .

  • mohammed marika thambi

    All electronics are somewhat sensitive to power surges or dropouts. It
    is possible that you had a slight drop in power at your house that
    caused the internal 5V power line to drop to 4.2V or so. Once that
    level is reached, some CPUs have a tough time differentiating between 0
    and 1. Basically your set entered the state of confusion and the
    digital processing section was generating some bad analog info.
    Anytime this happens, a hard reset (unplugging long enough to drain
    the internal battery) will often cure the problem.

Will not power on, blinking red "power on" light


The power supply might have a shorted/defective diode(s), blown resistors, capacitors if the light is blinking on the front of the LCD.
I repair these power supplies, write to jah2mil@hotmail.com if you need further assistance.

I have a Akai DVDrw125. I've never been able to connect it between the cable signal in and the TV. It has S-Video in and S-Video out. The manual is worthless. I shouldn't have to switch the S-video cable...


The way I have it set up - cable box out to AKAI cable in, video and audio out of AKAI into TV via RCA. AKAI on channel 3, tv on RCA input. Change channels on Cable box, works fine. To watch a video, just put it in an hit play. Might have to change sources on AKAI if this is not working for u.

TV ON STANDBY MODE


The blinking light on the front indicates a shorted part in the power supply. The power board will need to be replace or repair to restore the LCD functionality.
Let me know if you required further assistance.

Mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume


Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

Red blinking light on a Magnavox Plasma TV


Here is the solution. For less that 100$ your Magnavox Plasma TV. Model # 50MF2310/37 will be running like a champ.

Issue:

Magnavox Plasma TV. Model # 50MF2310/37 screen has no picture. There is no sound, TV comes on and then after a few seconds clicks and screen remains blank.

Cause:

On the main power circuit board to Capacitors are prone to failure from over load. The caps are 3300uf 10v 105+c capacitors located to the left of the AC power input.

Service:

Magnavox will refer you to a service center. They will advise $$$ for an inspection. They will also want to charge upwards of 500$ to replace the entire board.

Solution:

1. Unplug your TV
2. Disconnect all connections from your TV
3. With assistance lay your TV on its face on a non-scratching service
4. Remove the back panel screws.
5. Lift back panel off
6. The central board is your main power board.
7. Remove all wire harnesses from the main board.
8. Remove all screws that are holding the main board in place.
9. Lift the main board out and carefully place it into a non electromagnetic pouch.
10. Take the board to a Circuit Board repair shop.
11. Have them replace the the above mentioned Caps.
12. Re-install the board in your TV.

NOTE: Replace the caps with 3300uf 16v 105+ high temp caps(preferrably Japanese caps)

This fix cost me 80$ and my time to search for other who had the same issue. Try searching for Magnavox Plasma TV. Model # 50MF2310/37 bad circuit board or Magnavox Plasma TV bad capacitors or Magnavox Plasma TV bad ciruit board.

Hope this all help, Magnavox is should take ownership for this problem and recall any tv's that have these caps in them. The worst part about this is that teh **** from the repair center that was paid 100$ to check the TV, stripped out the screw holes and damaged the case for the TV.

Portland Laptop Repair was awesome. They repaired the board and it looked like new. Check them out at http://www.laptopportland.com/

Won't turn on


If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).

Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.

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
