Can't play dvd--wrong region

Commercial DVDs are released with region codes that restricts in which part of the world they can be played. Consumer DVD players sold in those regions are pre-configured with the correct region code for the given sales area. The United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. territories are region 1. Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), The Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland and region 2.

I bought a DVD from the U.K., but it's not working on my DVD at home. I live in the U.S. I need some help. How do you make a foreign DVD work on our models?

The answer is generally you cannot. The recording industry refused to produce DVDs until the DVD player manufacturers agreed to a regional system, whereby DVD players sold in a particular region could only play DVDs marked for that region or marked "Universal" or "Region Code 0" (this is supposedly to discourage illegal copying). Your best bet is to use a computer DVD player set up for Region 2 (US is Region 1), then connect the video output of the computer to the monitor input of the TV if your TV has one (either VGA or DVI), or just watch it on your computer.

Earlier models of DVD players would allow you to change the region up to five times, but would permanently lock in the region set on the fifth change. Newer models don't even have that option because it was relatively easy to hack the region change counter. There is an "under-the-counter" DVD player hacking industry in Europe, but there is little demand for that in the US - partly because US recording industry lawyers can be even more bothersome and expensive to deal with than European bureaucrats, and partly because few people here obtain out-of-region discs.

Akai lct2701td, flat screen tv won't turn on.

Oh Dear. I had the same problem!! The Akai televisons are not well engineered-meaning that they tried to put too much in a little package. The problem is that the power supply is malfunctioning"supposedly". But I believe that the sad truth is that the whole motherboard is malfunctioning. I can suggest a few TEMPORARY solutions but they too are not guaranteed to work!
1. Bring the tv to a repair shop and tell them to check the power supply. If it is faulty -have it exchanged and it will work for <2 weeks.
2. Literally "bend" the television in multiple directions to find a sweet spot where the screen turns on.( wait for the diode tu tur green before doing this) this will slightly bend the motherboard in hopes of agitating it to turn the screen/bulbs on.

I am terribly sorry that you too have this ridiculous problem!!!!!! :-(
Good Luck!!! I am crossing my fingers for you!!

Flashing RED Light

Our AKAI also shut off & the red light started to no help from AKAI, but did from COSTCO. We bought the set before the 90 day warranty they have in place now, so they referred us to COSTCO Concierge Services: 1-866-861-0450. We were referred to a repair service & after discovering what the problem was found out that AKAI not longer has parts for this model. COSTCO replaced our TV---talk about satisfaction guaranteed.

DVD slot loading drive blocked by plastic tabs?

The Tabs you see are part of the DVD loading mechanism; they are there to prevent insertion of a DVD while there is already a DVD inside. If you cannot eject the DVD, then odds are the DVD drive is jammed or has "locked up" due to interface issues; on these models, sometimes it is the DVD drive which fails, & sometimes it is the control portion of the mainboard.

Good luck,

Could be the audio format for some movies to enhance surround sound, but could also be a mixer problem on the audio portion of the TV input...accordianman
