depending on if the dvd player has functions such as video input , but not likely

SOURCE: HD ready?

Your TV will be able to pick up the OTA channels by installing an outdoor antenna. After installing the antenna you will need to do a channel scan.
It is hdtv compatible, no need for a converter box but if you have cable TV or satellite, you still need to subscribe for the HD channels.
Hope this helps.

Change the capacitors located on the power (center) circuit board towards the top. They are C523 and C524 on the board.

Digikey has them for $6. .022 X 400V poly caps.

Try the power button on the tv. Your remote may have dead batteries. If no luck still, it sounds like your power supply unit has gone south. Check for warranty before attempting to repair.

What type of cords do I need to hook up a akia PDP4273m1 to my cable box


Which cable box are you trying to connect to the PDP4273m1? The best choice of cable will depend on the outputs available on the cable box. If your cable box has HDMI (looks like a rectangle with small cutouts on one long side) out, get an HDMI (type A on both sides) video cable and connect it between that port and the TV's HDMI in. (This connection doesn't require an extra audio cable.) If your cable box has a DVI (out, get a DVI to HDMI adapter and the HDMI cable (or a DVI to HDMI cable). Connect the DVI side to the cable box and then the HDMI cable to the TV Then get an RCA audio cable (two male ends on each side, usually red and white). Connect this to the audio out jacks on the cable box and to the DVI audio in ports on the TV.

If you do not have either of those outputs, check for a component video/audio output. Get the component video cable (with 3 RCA plugs on each end - red, blue and green) and an RCA audio cable. Match the colors on each side as you connect the devices.

If those aren't available, the S-video or composite video cables will work. The composite video cable comes with the audio connectors (red, white, yellow RCA plugs). They aren't part of the S-video cable and must be obtained separately. These are limited to standard video (no HD) so they are not the best choices with your tv.

If your cable box has SCART out, you will need an adapter for that. Most provide composite or S-video out. See http://www.svideo.com/scart2.html for one of these. Note: you will need to match the adapter to the CART output or get a converter.

The connections should be from the left side: serial port (RS-232 for service), HDMI, digital audio out (for connecting to a home theater receiver), DVI audio In, two component video and audio in, a composite video/audio in and out and an S-video with audio in. The manual for the PDP4273M1 is available from Retrevo here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Akai-PDP4273M1-TVs-manual/id/741bh140/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the manual.

i hope this helps. Please add a comment with your cable box make/model/provider if you want more help.

(very few TVs come with the A/V cables these days. Some set-top boxes will come with the composite video cables.)

How to connect the cable to my Akai tv set without a cable input? I don't have a cable box.


If you get a cable box that has audio/video outputs on the rear connect them to a identical input on the rear of the set----direct connection and bypasses the coax fitting most sets have.

Go to the input you hooked to and leave set there--change channels via the box with its remote or manual buttons.

How do i get a picture thru component 2 so i can get 1080i quality. i only get a picture thru component 1.


You would need to unplug the input cables in the TV and move them to component 2 on the back. Assuming your input is at 1080i in the first place (ie, the cable box or digital satelite signal is coming in at the proper resolution). One way to check is to connect an external DVD player to the component 1 input and see if the picture is higher quality than the signal from the Cable/Satelite. Not sure changing to component 2 is going to make a difference. Good luck and let me know what happens!

On the back of your box you should have Video and Audio output jacks. If you are using those now then you will have to go Best Buy ect.... and get ( 2 ) RCA Y adapters. ( single male, double female ) The single male will plug into the L audio out and the other single male into the R audio out. The cables that used to be in those will plug into 1 each of the female end. Now take your audio cables from you surround sound and plug them into the other female ends, then connect the cable to your surround sound Audio In and that's it. OH, don't do anything with the video cable.

If your not using the jacks on the back of the box then just plug your surround sound cables into the Left and Right audio Out of the box and your done. Don't forget, what ever station your watching on the box is what you'll hear from the surround snd.

I have a Akai DVDrw125. I've never been able to connect it between the cable signal in and the TV. It has S-Video in and S-Video out. The manual is worthless. I shouldn't have to switch the S-video cable...


The way I have it set up - cable box out to AKAI cable in, video and audio out of AKAI into TV via RCA. AKAI on channel 3, tv on RCA input. Change channels on Cable box, works fine. To watch a video, just put it in an hit play. Might have to change sources on AKAI if this is not working for u.

42" Sharp Aquous audio; Mono vs. Stereo


no. that is not true. the person you spoke to obviously didn't know what they were talking about. you mean to tell me that everyone that has a cable or satellite box with a stereo or hd tv is not going to receive stereo sound? really,think about it. you only need a cable box( for now ) if you have premium channels (hbo,showtime etc). you can connect the cable line right into the tv if you only have basic cable. look at the back of your cable box. if you have a red, white, & yellow audio/video output, then the box is stereo.connect these outputs to your tv. this connection however is not hd.you will need a hd box with a hdmi cable for hd .To put the tv on stereo mode, there should be a way via the menu and/or the audio button on the remote to get it off mono and put it on stereo. your manual should at least show you around the settings of your tv.
