SOURCE: subtitles disappear below bottom of screen

Check to see, what format the television set that widescreen etc. this may be all that's wrong with your set. If the problem persists the vertical height needs to be adjusted.  Most likely through the service menu, if units under warranty you can call Akai.  For further structures.

SOURCE: TV No Picture

My 32D40U would turn on for 5-10 seconds (Please Wait would appear) and the screen would go black. Sound Normal. It would also sometimes do this after running 5-10 minutes. I read somewhere that the inverter board would come loose and lose proper ground. I took the set apart, removed the board, and cleaned up the grounding points. I reassembled using some copper paste on the ground points and LockTite on the screws. I used some contact cleaner on all the connectors going to the board. I noticed two cables that are covered with copper shield tape where too tight at their connectors and repositioned the tape to give them some slack. The problem hasn't occurred since the fix.

SOURCE: Akai pdp4273m1 has sound but no picture

I also have the akai PDP4273M1 tv with power and no picture and I looked at the power supply board inside and found 1 of the FMG26S chips blown and I am looking into replacing this to see if that does it and if not do a search for SANKEN PSC10165B M and for approx 170.00 you can get a whole new power supply for it and its easy to put in..

Its a backlight problem. Common with this model. Under warranty? If not, then its a service shop repair.

SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA volume problem

I had this same issue, and solved it by putting the TV in "Theater Mode', which can be acheived by hitting the "Theater" button on the remote.

SOURCE: LG LCD tv screen went white? Still have sound and

White screen may be caused by failed T-CON board or it is not getting the 12vdc or signals from the main board. Check the fuse on the T-CON board first, T-CON board is mounted under the metal shield.

Remote operation for Akai remote and Uverse-remote hooked to Akai

iF you tried to unplug sets and or boxes connected only a few reasons remain: if remote works when first on or when very close to set the issue may be the infrared receiver==the remote itself can easily be tested but does not sound like the problem although it could be.

If the set is not usable and over a certain age, I would go replace it.

HD ready?

It was not a problem. It is just a question. Is it HD ready or not without a converter box or cable?
I will go to a store and ask a tech if you can not answer.

Sony 37" Flat Panel Bravia--cant change from channel 2?


On the original Sony remote control, try typing in a channel manually. Try pressing the numbers "0-4" or "0-5," and waiting for a moment. If the channel changes, then the TV needs to be autoprogrammed. Using the SOny remote control, go into the MENU (or HOME on some Sony remotes), and look for the initial setup screen. It will walk you through the process. The process is also in the original users manual, available on the website.

Hope this helps you....

Panel buttons and remote controls are both erratic

Problem seems in panel board having bad switches. You probably need to replace the (control) panle board. Check out this Weblink having info for Akai TV parts.

Tv want show

Look at the back of your TV.  Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)

Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs.  Wait one second between pushes.  You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen.  It should show a number, for the current channel number.

If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4.  If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one.  If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active).  Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.
