Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Volume turns up or down on its own

Sometimes my TV will just increase the volume or decrease by its self.

I have noticed that if I increase the volume and hit the guide button it will cause the volume to increase or conversely if I had used the volume down then guide it will go down, but then again sometimes it will just go either up or down when we have not touched the remote for a while. It is almost like someone is sitting on the remote when it goes crazy, but no one is any where near the remote.

I am not using the remote that came with the TV I am using the one that came with my cable box (M/N:1056b01).

Any Ideas?

    My exact TV M/N is PDP4249G but it was not in the database so I picked something I thought was close to get my post through.

    The only liquid I can think of could have come from the glass cleaner I have used to clean the TV. But I will give it a shot, should I spray directly onto the button or can I spray it into a towel and rub it on the buttons?

    let ask you a question. did you spray any liquid on the buttons panel? because if you did, the liquid is what causing all this trouble, just spray some kind of lubricant like WD40 but not too much and let see what happens.

Yes direct into the buttons the WD40 is the best thing i've ever seen, that will not damage anything you can spray it without fear and then try to activate the buttons a few times, of course with the tv off.

The cause of the problem is that the switch of your tv is dirty when cleaning it you must be familiar to the unit and the parts you will remove to prevent any damage you can use a contact cleaner, when applying a contact cleaner you must only spray it to the switch. Consult a expert technician to do it for you actual.

Dont know how to control the volume, i cannot find my manual


Most of the time their are multiple ways to do this.

1. On the speaker in the lower right hand corner left click and a volume bar appears. Slide it up and down. It should be adjust to 75% IMO.

2. On your keys there should be symbols that look like speakers that should match the color of you "fn" key. Press and hold the fn key and then press the corresponding speaker key to increase or decrease the volume.

3. There may be a rotary volume control on the front of the laptop case. It's as simple as turning it to increase or decrease it.

On the volume bar in windows verify that the muted in unchecked.

Toshiba volume increases by itself


yesterda i ve repaired a laptop with the sam problem. i hav done all reinstallation of windows and drivers.
but this is very funny when i found that the inbuilt key of laptop volume control was pressed automatically so when i try to decrease volume it increases automatically.

How do I increase the volume on my Nokia 1661?


There are 2 types of volume in your nokia phone that you can increase or decrease.

The first one is the ring tone volume. You can either increase or decrease your ring tone volume by pressing the menu key then go to settings, go to profile, select any desired profile go to personalise go to ringing volume, then increase or decrease by using the navigation button to the right or left.

The second way is to increase or decrease the volume of the speaker of your phone which i think is the cause of your question (this volume enables you to hear clear and loud the person on the other phone). You increase or decrease the volume by making a call, as soon as the call starts ringing, press the navigation key to right to increase the volume or to the left to decrease the volume.

Volume and menu does not display


I had this problem on my Aquos (LC-46D62U). It was NOT a hardware problem. I recommend turning off the television. Next unplug the television for 5 to 10 seconds. This resets something for the television. Plug it back in and turn on the television. You should now be able to get your volume and other on-screen displays.
