    I have the same problem with my Akai LCT42Z6TM TV as well. So far I found no solution to the problem. I am trying to get an answer directly from AKAI but haven't had much luck getting through to them. These lines are white scrambled vertical lines that appear all the time, even when I play Wii on it. I even tried to hook up an HDTV converter and that didn't help either. When I go into the menu, it is scrambled with color horizontal lines making it difficult to read. If anyone has similar trouble with this model or know of a fix for it ,please respond.

I finally got an answer from Akai customer service center. Because the TV is only 6 months old and I have proof of purchase, it will be repaired from a local Akai repair shop all under warranty. They told me it was a faulty modular chip that has happened to several of these models and had to be repaired in the shop due to some internal soldering needing to be done. I am waiting for the repair center to call me and will let you all know when the repair is completed.

I mis placed the 1-800 number but you can email them at akai@fox-international.com. They are located in Cleveland. Ohio.

I hooked up the dvd but I get a picture but no sound


audio cables need to be hooked up as well not just a video cable.
usually red and white and clearly colored on the output side of the dvd player and the tv. input is on the tv output is on the dvd, also if you are using a fiber connection (optical sound) you will need a fiber cable from the dvd to the tv.

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

I have determined that mine had a problem with the composite input board. I was able to unhook the connections to this board inside the TV, after Akai, and the local repair guys couldn't figure it out....


The problem hasn't come back in a while, and since my setup is all HDMI/Component ins, I didn't affect me at all.

It looked like there was slight heat damage to the board, but not enough that it was caused by a design flaw, more like a manufacturing "accident".
