Question about Akai CFTD2011 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television
My dog ate the factory remote for my Akai CFTD-2011. I bought a universal remote at Target but it doesn't work... apparently no codes for the Akai TV/DVD player on the list! A new one is $100... Does anyone have any idea how to make a $8.00 universal remote work with this thing? I'm not sure if it's a new code that's needed or if I have to trash teh whoel TV just for this problem! Thanks! You can email me solutions to email@example.com.
JUST SPOKE WITH AKAI REP @ 216-454-0866.
MODEL CFTD2011 IS NOT SET UP TO WORK WITH ANY UNIVERSAL REMOTE.
YOU WILL HAVE TO ORDER AN ORIGNIAL REMOTE IF YOU NEED AN EXTRA.

I have had on order since December 2007 the Akai replacement remote #WIR3500001-EQ01 the Akai TV/DVD combo model #CFTD2011. I called each month for 5 months, being told each time that it was on backorder. A few days ago, I received a letter in the mail stating that this remote is no longer made and is not available.
I too have tried universal remotes without any luck. If anyone has a resolution, it would be greatly appreciated.

I just spoke with a guy at Akai tech support. He said that Akai television are designed not to work with ANY universal remote, and haven't been for years. (They were in the past, which explains why new uni remotes still claim to be able to control an Akai -- the new remotes just use the old codes, which of course are now kaput.)

AKIA TV CODE: 801
AKIA VCR CODES: 027,235,335,424,524,624,724,924 One of these will work.
AKIA DVD CODE: 141
I FOUND THESE CODES ON A LIST ON THE INTERNET AND WROTE THEM DOWN. I LOST MY REMOTE FOR AN AKIA 20" TV/VCR/DVD MODEL CFTD2085 3WAY TV. AND PROBABLY WILL NEED TO BUY A UNIVERSAL REMOTE.

Here's a little known secret in the industry... Techs have been using these for some time because they access EVERYTHIG including service menus for the units they're prescribed for and they're not that expensive.
Hope this helps!
