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.

replace the main board. You can get the replacement main board from www.tvcircuitboards most likley if they dont have it listed I would send a email as they only list boards that they have more than one of single boards are not always listed.
The 2 suspects are possible but there is a way to find it..try to get the control board and remove the vol+ button on it..then back the controller then power it on again try to push vol- on remote or TV..if no help you have faulty main board..
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.
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.
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.
Akai TV's are knwon for various issues, this is one of the ones i have had to deal with repairs for many times now, first jsut pwoer reset it, unplug it for 3-5 minutes and try another outlet, try a dvd player as well jsut o insure there is no sound, akai has no tech support as they ahve gone out of bussiness, i suggest calling the local television repair center or returning it
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.
How old is your TV?
sounds to me that the remote control's volume button is wedged in there. try to jimmy it loose with a paperclip. It could also be stuck ont he tv at the bottom. are you wall mounted, stand, or just laying on carpet? the volume is at the bottom of the tv. hope this helps...cheers.
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.
