    I have the same problem, one thing I did find, if when the AKAI logo comes on, if you use the remote and hit enter, the unit will stay on. holding any button on the unit, you can use the remote as normal, as long as you finish with hitting the enter button while holding any key on tv.

I had the exact same problem. Googled and fond someone had gotten the tv to stay on by hitting "enter" on the remote as soon as they saw "AKAI" logo onscreen. That didn't work for me, but it got me holding other buttons down on the remote, all tried no go. So I then decided to tinker with buttons on the tv itself and VOILA! If I hold down the MENU button on the tv, the damn thing works perfectly! Every function still works from the remote too. So I taped the MENU button ON THE TV down, and all is well. After having the tv sit for 6 months, tripping over it during a move... now I have it back and no repair bill. Hope it works for you guys.

No charge... ;)

Tv come on but cant clear the picture from turning red and black how can I get a clear picture?


Without knowing anything about your Tv make or model this is hard; but there should be a reset button in your menues to restore all settings to factory default. Find and use that. However I am suspicious and think the set needs reapir.

Garbage disposal electrical shock.


Are you sure it wasn't a static electric shock, rather than AC? If you live in a dry climate, or in a cold climate without a humidifier, and you may have walked across a carpet, it could have been a spark of static electricity. Especially if it hasn't reoccured.

I just received the crosley keepsake usb turntable and after plugging in the unit and turning it on I found that it was receiving no power. I tried several different outlets and even tried a different ac...


If you just received it? I would return it. You have done everything i would have done. If its brandnew? I would deffinately return it. You don't want to void warranty.

I touch the on/off button on the Prima TV to turn


I am sure you had some strong static electricity. The static spark arced to inside of the TV in to the circuit board. Many of the low cost TV sets have poor static electricity protection.
In most cases there is damaged caused by static shock to electronic devices.
Just for curiosity, you can try unplugging the set from the AC mins and plugging it back in to do a simple reset, in case there is no damage and some logic device became hung up.
Last year I picked up my mobile phone and got a static shock from it. I had to get a new phone. This phone never worked again!

TV won't turn on.


Stevenson

the fact that you got shock is because something is not right inside the tv. You need to have that tv check because a manufacturer will not fabricated a tv that can electrocute anyone, specially when you turn the volume. Static electricity is always present in front of any tv that might be the cause of why you got shock. By removing your coat, and touch some metallic object you may get electrocuted, because of static electricity. Please, I want you to have that tv check, I can check that tv for you. I felt something is wrong inside the tv, and something is loose inside like pennies and toys objects. That's my impression. My e-mail address Stevebuy31@hotmail.com
