Question about Akai PDP42Z5TA 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Remote quit working!

I don't know how it happened ... call it having 2 daughters in the house under 4 that like to play with the remotes ... but somehow my 42z5ta remote has stopped working. I need to know what the procedures are for reprogramming it and what the default code is for the television. Does any one know? I couldn't find anything about it in the instruction manual.

Help! It wouldn't be so bad, except I've never been able to get any other universal remote to control the Akai. It must have some bizarre unique codes that it uses.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shackRemote quit working! - 2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

Most of the remotes at the top inside have either one or two led's that send the signal--quite likely the remote may have been dropped and one has come loose from the circuit board in the remote--have a shop take it apart---we fix a lot of these for under 20 dollars.

Polaroid tdac-02212 remote quit working


should be under warranty but the remote itself can be tested by any shop--also some digital cameras when remote pointed at them in a dim room will react on their display screen with a flash when remote pointed at camera and buttons pressed on the remote.

Trying to program a direct tv remote to work with my 46" lcd, Vizio tv. Have tried the codes provided, but they don't show when I type them...not sure if actually being entered. Or, maybe have...



1 Vizio tv.code 0864 OR 10885 OR 11756OR 10178

Unable to Find Correct Code
If you were unable to find the code for your brand of TV or component, you can try a code search. This process may take up to 30 minutes.
1. Turn on the TV or component. Insert a tape or disk if applicable.
2. Slide the MODE switch to the TV, AV1 or AV2 position, as desired.
3. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the selected switch position flashes twice, then release both keys.
4. Enter 9-9-1 followed by one of the following four digits:
Satellite - 0
TV - 1
VCR/DVD - 2
Stereo Receiver/Stereo Amplifier - 3
5. Press PWR, or other functions (e.g. PLAY for VCR) you want to use.
6. Point the remote at the TV or component and press CHAN+. Repeatedly press CHAN+ until the TV or component turns off.
NOTE: Every time CHAN+ is pressed the remote advances to the next code and power is transmitted to the component.
7. Use the CHAN- key to step back a code.
8. When the TV or component turns off, stop pressing the CHAN+ key. Then, press and release the SELECT key.
NOTE: If the light flashes 3 times before the TV or component responds, you've cycled through all codes and the code you need is not available. You must use the remote that came with your TV or component.

Verifying the Codes
Once you have set up the DIRECTV Universal Remote Control using the above steps, use the following instructions to find out the 5-digit code to which your component responded:
1. Slide the MODE switch to the appropriate position.
2. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the selected switch position flashes twice, then release both keys.
3. Enter 9-9-0. (The green light under the selected switch position flashes twice.)
4. To view the first digit in the code, Press and release then number 1 key. Wait three seconds, and count the number of times the green light flashes. Write this number down.
5. Repeat step 4 four more times for the remaining digits; i.e., press number 2 for the second digit, 3 for the third digit, 4 for the fourth digit and 5 for the final digit.\


Depending on how you set up your remote, the VOL and MUTE may control the volume only on your TV, regardless of the position of the MODE switch. This remote can be set up so that the VOL and MUTE keys work only with the component selected by the MODE switch. To enable this feature, perform the following steps:
1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice, then release both keys.
2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.)
3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light flashes 4 times.)
Now the VOL and MUTE keys will work only for the component selected by the MODE switch position.

To Lock Volume to AV1, AV2 or TV
1. Slide the MODE switch to the AV1, AV2 or TV position to lock the volume.
2. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the selected switch flashes twice and release both keys.
3. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light flashes twice.)
4. Press and release the SELECT key. (The green light flashes twice.)

If the buttons on the case are working but the buttons on the remote don't then it's clearly a fault with the remote.
Each button in the remote is made out of 2 wires on the electronics board that are joined by a small patch of conductive paint situated on the rear of the rubber button. If something gets in there, like water or dirt or the patch flakes out, the contact is no longer made and the button no longer works. The remote will have to be dismantled by popping the clips on the periphery with a sharp tool, the rubber strip holding the buttons will have to be washed and the board wiped clean. If the buttons still don't work after that then the remote is dead, you will have to get another one.

How do I get my att&t u-verse remote control to recognize my 51 inch samsung TV?


The remote can't recognize the tv, it doesn't have that capability. If you want to use it to command that tv you must program it accordingly. Basically you must introduce the code that corresponds to the set of commands that your tv uses - if they are present in the remote.
This is the programming procedure:
1 - hold down the TV button on the Uverse remote. As you are holding the TV button, press and release the OK button. You know you have done this right when all the mode keys flash twice.
2 - Find the 4 digit code for your device in the User guide that was given you when the Uverse was set up, or online at

https://www.att.com/support_media/images/pdf/uverse/set-up-code-list.pdf


3 - At this point, the TV mode button should flash three times. Try to turn the TV off by pushing the power button. If it does not turn off, try a different code. If it turns off then turn it on with the remote and test the other buttons. If they don't work then try a new code.There are a lot of codes for Samsung in there, try them all until you find the one that has the best compatibility - most buttons that can be used.
4 - If none of the codes for your device work, try manually searching for a code. Go back and repeat steps 1 and 2. Then enter 922. Hold play as the remote cycles through various codes. When your TV turns off, push enter to memorize it. This generic code will provide just a basic control, if you really need full control then you will need another remote.

Fix my tv


The main power supply or one of the scan amplifiiers was most likely on the verge of failing, and it finaly did. The set would have to be properly troubleshooted to determine the failed components.
