Question about Akai PT5492S 54" Rear Projection Television

Akai TV volume control stuck on 100%

While dusting our 3 yo Akai TV there was a spark as I rubbed over the lower TV control panel. The volume control is now stuck on high. The TV screen constantly shows the volume setting at 100%. The channel changer for TV won't work for changing channels, volume or mute. We are using our cable box and VCR to change channels. I put tape over the front TV speakers so that the sound could be muted somewhat. Any suggestions as to what to do? I am afraid that a service call will cost more than the TV is worth.

Try leaving the set unplugged for several hours, this will reset it to factory settings. If this does not work you need service.

VOLUME CONTROL APPEARS ON T.V. OCCASIONALY


Hi,

the volume control is apprearing on the TV because the volume button on the TV is partially stuck in, that is why its coming up occationally. This same thing may also happen to the remote control of the TV.

Use your find to rub the buttons on the buttons on the TV, espcially the volume control button. Do same on the remote and most definately problem should be solved.

Please give me a feedback if solution does not work for you.

Yours sincerely.

Volume won't turn down


Try the setup program. When you get to the main setup screen, look for a reset all to standard setting. That may solve the problem. If it doesn't then the sound module may need to be replaced inside the TV.

Volume Control


check the up volume button on the set. it sounds like it is stuck in the on position. You can open the back and disconnect the wire harness to the control buttons. This will verify if the volume up button is the problem.

Is sounds more like a button got stuck or you could have a main board failure since the TV is powering up normal; but it could also be a power supply not providing the proper voltages to the main board circuitry and the microprcessor does not know what to do.

Something like this Id have someone who knows there way around electronics, a qualified tech or someone you trust really well :-) Does the crackling affect the TV picture at all ? My first guess would be dust and or dampness on the audio components. Sometimes this can conduct electricity across small pc chips and reak all sorts of havoc. I had an old Tomas electric organ once, and it actually caught fire because two speaker wires were rubbing together and eventually wore thru the insulation and shorted out, but it was also making alot of crackling and static noises. Try raising and lowering the volume low to high and high to low and see if the crackling noises gets worse. Some audio amplifiers put out quite a bit of power, so I wouldnt trust leaving the TV on without a fire extinguisher handy.
