Akai 1080i hdtv 54in

T.v. abruptly shut off tried to turn it back on and it didn't make the usual tones indicating that the set was on instead it made a sickening sound like a dying baby bird. tried unplugging it unhooking all other devices but it still made the same sound. this set is only 2 years old. thank you for your assistance.

Sounds like a regulator problem, possibly the low voltage side of the regulator. Could be the the regulator itself has shorted which in this unit is a STRF6628. If you're trying to attempt repairs yourself take a look at C834 100uf/25v next to the regulator and see if it's possibly open. If so replace it and see if the unit will power-up and let me know..

Fuzzy picture on tv 54in

Check your coaxial cable connection and inspect it wiggle it while the set is on if the problem clears replace the cable. Check to see if the male connector that sticks out the back of the set isint loose to the point where it moves when you touch it. If it does you need to have it looked at by a tech usually this problem can be solved with a little soldering but could get more complicated. Depending on the age of the set the fluid in the CRT's gets old and cloudy and light cant shine through it makeing your picture appear fuzzy. Your local tech should be able to change the oil in your set. Finally you could have some bad filter caps but I doubt it.

Only reddish hue color for entire screen

In most cases these CRT projection sets made by Samsung for Akai are notorious for fouled cooling liquid in one or more of the CRT's. The CRT's in most cases are no longer available.

Akai hdtv 1080i no picture

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

    Changing resolution settings

    Change the resolution through your Cable / Satellite box - Go into the menu. Most of the Akai tv sets do not have an option to change the resolution.
