SOURCE: poor picture quality in new Akai plasma TV

Try putting a fan on the back of the tv to see if it is getting better. If it does then you probally have a board that is overheating. If that is the case then CAREFULLY !!! remove the back and place where you can turn on and safely access the open back NO TOUCHING STUFF !!! Mabey lay it face down on a glass table or lay it on a table with 25% hanging over the edge to see the screen. Then take a COLD blow dryer and blow it on the boards to find out which one makes it get better. If one does then it will probally be your problem board. Make extremely sure that is the one before removing it by blowing from all angles on the boards around it without air hitting the suposed problem board. Then try a little hot air to see if that starts the problem on that board so you can be sure. Of course check the surrounding and offending board several times to be sure before removing.

Unplug your TV for a while and see fi you are getting the same issues after you plug it in. If it works after, then you have an overheating issue with the power supply or main board.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: TV has shadowing double images/colors are uneven

It sounds like the problem one can have from a weak signal. This kind of problem is normally associated with the use of an antenna which is receiving the primary signal, then a secondary one that is being reflected to you from a distance; an echo. The first signal is the one you are seeing best, then from some distance, the same signal is being sent back to you with a time delay of a few microseconds causing a shift in the images. A repositioning of the antenna orientation is the only solution.
If you are on cable, you will need to call them and holler about the signal quality. Thinking this through, I don't think this can happen when receiving satellite signals since the antenna is pointed toward the sky and the chances of any noticeable reflection are close to nil.

SOURCE: I have lost the red

Hi, well yes you are off to the repair shop, most likely you have lost your Red "Drive" or indeed a "Gun" may have faulted or the driving circuit, or the PSU. I have seen this many times in my shop, but issues like this simply must be troubleshot to identify the exact cause as many symptoms appear the same but have differing faults and causes..
Below is a link for your user manual. http://www.retrevo.com/support/Akai-LCT3285TA-TVs-manual/id/741bh147/t/2/
now to get the best deal with a repair, and is my professional recommendation, what you should do is get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Akai, in your case. Now, when you get the information you want, from them, Akai, and you get the "Quote" well, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have original parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and sometimes, rarely, the repair may be subsided or even free.

I hooked up my cable box up to my sceptre tv and it had sounds but the picture is black and white I even went and bought the blue and green cords but still only black and white


With the blue/green/red cords (Component) you need to get a very good bright light on the connectors so you get the plugged into the correct COMPONENT connectors on the TV. Note, there are white and red AUDIO plugs right near the COMPONENT input so you need to be VERY careful. If you get it wrong, the colors on screen are often off and even black&white.

How is your cable box connected to the TV? Screw on "COAXIAL", Yellow, Red, White "RCA", single flat connector "HDMI" or 5 colored plugs 2 X Red, 1 X White, 1 X Blue, 1 X Green "COMPONENT"

OK, here is the breakdown on whet you are doing wrong.

Video 1 - Composite -
Video - Yellow
White - Audio In - Right
Red - Audio in - Left

Video 2 - Components - HD - RGB = Red, Green, Blue
Video -
Red - Red Colors
Green - Green Colors
Blue - Blue Colors
White - Audio In - Right
Red - Audio in - Left

Your GameCube will only work on Video 1, unless you buy an HD (Component cable). You will need to buy HD cables for your device connected to Video 1 to work on video 2. I will assume it is a DVD player. This is a high definition cable to produce a better picture. Let me know if you do not completely understand

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

First you need a component cable to solve your problem.Since you have not mentioned what device you are connecting to your TV, I''ll assume its a DVD player or a settop box.There is a Red and White audio sockets + Red / Green / Blue component video socket. Just make sure you connect the corresponding two sets of jacks at both end of your TV & DVD player and everything will work. bobhifi_21.jpg

The red whit and yellow connectors are for the Component connectors, your cable is for Composite connection - incompatible one to each other.
Your tv also has that yellow red and white connectors somewhere on it - probably on the side. Plug the cable there and respect the color coding or it will not work.

Hi,
This would be 5 pins, red-white is for audio and rest of 3 pins red-green-blue for video signal, it calls component video.
Find out red-green-blue jacks at back of TV that would be label as Y, Yr, Yb
Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.

White has turned pinkish


sounds like the linear adjustment is out of whack.....most projection type tvs, projection, lcd, plasma, have to be correctly aligned so that the color grids overlap each other to properly display the correct hue being created. you'd need the service code to re-adjust it, or have it serviced. also possible that one of the color grids is bad, but if you have all three (red,blue,green) colors showing on the entire screen area i would doubt it

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
