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

"NO SIGNAL "is displayed on a blue screen

You have selected an input on the display that is not getting any signal that the display can recognize. Press the source button either on the set or on the remote until you get a signal.

I have an Akai / Scott LCT32SHA LCD television. When I turn it on I get a blue screen and nothing else I have tried changing inputs and unplugging it, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly...

Try and see if the AUX input works if you apply a signal to the input - DVD- and select LINE IN /AUX.
If so the TV mains sections are in good condition as the suspected area of fault can be in the front end RF section , possible in the tuner and VIF/SIF sections.
If not the main board can be faulty.

Try selecting a different input, or checking the device which you are receiving the signal from. A blue screen typically indicates that there is no signal.

Yes, I seem to have fixed the problem on my Akai using some creative google finds. One of two things worked - not sure which:

1. Leave the set unplugged overnight - it must let the electronics reset when the residual charges clear
2. For my Akai (remotes and models vary), hit in remote's sequence quickly - brightness, freeze, menu, enter - this places you in some screen that offers a hard reset option. That didn't work right away, but i did it before the option above and then the set worked again.

My problem was really odd because it worked for the component inputs and you could see the video and TV signals inside the PIP windows, but not full screen as primary input. Why the TV could 'see' the signals in a PIP windows but not detect them as primary I have no idea.
