Question about Akai CFTD2052 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Polaroid LCD TV TLA-4641C

The menu keeps flashing on and off. I cannot access anything with the remote or on the TV. When I press the input button on the TV it will stop the menu from flashing but I can only access the screen it freezes on, the picture screen.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

How can i hook up a dvd player to a Sylvain tv with no remote


Ok the brand of the tv is not as relevant as the particular model number as each set varies. generically speaking without having to ask you for more information, some tv set allow you to access auxiliary inputs without a remote by pressing a combination of buttons or repeatedly pressing the channel up or down button until the inputs are cycled. A lot of set also allow you to navigate through inputs by the menu, a menu is often accessible by buttons on the set. If none of these options are avaliable try contacting your tv manufactor and asking how to navigate the inputs Witout the remote, which keep in mind is highly possible that you may not be able to do so. Consider replacing the remote with a universal remote.
good luck and thanks

I accidentally changed the settings on my remote control using the on screen menu from dvd1 to dvd2


I'm not sure the question - perhaps your TV is set to the DVD2 input and it's not a DVD issue.
If so, using your TV remote, push the "input" button until you reach your desired input.

Hi all please help, I have an LG 32ld450 with no remote so I'm using my sky+hd remote. The problem I have is that I've tried to set up a magic eye in my room but I can't get off DTV to get the right...


Your TV has menu buttons on the side. When you go in to the menus then the normal thing is for the Volume and channel keys to act as Up/Down and Left/Right. I can't tell you which will do what function; you'll have to try it, but they should work. The TV also has an OK/Select/Enter button on it so you can activate a sub menu as you navigate through.

From the side menu it should be possible to access the tuning menu. Once in there you can set up the TV's analogue tuner to receive the Sky box RF2 out signal.

As for how you change between the analogue and DTV tuners, that could be a tougher nut to crack. There's a little trick with a Sky remote that allows one to program the Help key to bring up a TV's input menu:

On your Sky remote, press TV
Now hold down Green and Select together until the red LED flashes twice.
Now press the help key
Now press Select

Now, when you press TV and then the Help button the TV should display its input menu. Pressing help repeatedly will cycle through the inputs.

Of course,m the above only really helps if the TV lists the analogue and DTV tuners individually. If it doesn't, and there's now way of accessing it through the TV's menu navigation, then you might have to just bite the bullet and go to a supermarket and buy a cheap universal remote. Check it has the TV/Radio or TV/DTV function before you buy.

Checking your remote can be done with any digital camera since they can 'see' the infrared light from them but I suspect the remote is working; generally, if they are emitting anything, it will be sending correct correct pulse trains.
Having the camera 'live' you will be able to see that the remote is working by aiming the remote at the camera's lens and pressing any button while watching the camera's LCD display. The output of the remote will appear as white or near white blinking lights.
> I've tried to reset to factory settings but when I've got into the service menu I can't input anything?
Often the service settings require entering some code (password) sequence to access factory settings and it may not be possible to enter the code if one or the other end of the IR system isn't functioning.
Summary; I think the remote transmitter is OK but the receiver in the set is not decoding the received signal despite it indicating that something was received.
I think the set itself is a fault and you will need a tech on site on in the shop to search for the right board to replace since the IR receiver may be part of the main board (expensive) or a separate assembly (somewhat less expensive).

Original remote lost. have universal remote. cannot program TV


On the right hand side of this television there are panel buttons. It appears that your son in law knocked the tv out of the correct input. Press the input button in order to cycle through the 5 inputs. Typically pressing the input button on the side panel of a television and pressing it again and again and again will make it change inputs. Universally the buttons on the tv panel function as follows: Channel up moves the cursor up. Channel down moves the cursor down. Volume + moves the cursor right. Volume - moves the cursor left.
Hope this helps
