Akai TV Stuck in Video Menu Page

My TV is stuck in the Video Menu page. Pressing any key on the remote will only cycle between a blue screen and the video menu. Also, the power button the TV will not turn the TV on, but it will turn the TV off. In contrast, the power button the TV will turn the TV on, but when it is on, the power button, like all the others on the remote, will only cycle between the blue screen and the video menu page.

Unplug TV for about 2(two) hours, while the TV is unpluged press the on\off button on the TV every once in a while. Replug electricity and try to turn the TV without the r\c, use the on\off button only...If that does not work...u need a tech to look inside..

TCL Blue Screen "No Media"

I have this tv, just had this exact problem and just fixed it. All this screen means is that you have pushed the "media" button on your remote and it's telling you that nothing is plugged in to your usb drive on the tv. If you plug in a usb key with pictures or video on it, you'll be able to view those from this screen. Otherwise, to exit this elusive "no media" screen, grab your remote and hit the button that says "tv" to get back to the blue screen that says "no signal" and from there, you should be able to hit the "input" button on the remote and switch between your inputs of choice. My favorite input is my apple tv plugged into hdmi 2. yay!

I have an akai 52, it just happen, the screen looks to big for tv and its like its stuck in a panorama mode can it adjust this? i have tried everything with the menu button and nothing seems to...

Check for a button that says 'pic size' or 'zoom' or 'aspect' or something similar on your remote. Most newer TV's have this funvtion but it's almost always controlled by the remote, not the TV menus.

LG 32lc7d lcd tv the work find for about 5min. Then the on screen menu comes on the screen then it gos off the remote will not work what board is it ?

Maybe the remote has some keys that are stuck together on the membrane pad. Take the batteries out of the remote, then turn the TV on again see if the menu problem is still happening. Also check the menu button on the TV see if it is stuck by pressing it a few times.......

If all seems ok but still have the same problem, then the the keypad board in the TV needs to be checked for intermittent shorts or opens. If the keypad board is good then the main board needs troubleshooting. This seems like an EEPROM problem, you may want to test that first on the main board.

any questions please ask....

The picture on my LTV-19w3 WH tv just shows a blue, black, or green screen with about a 4" sq. plaid patch in the upper right hand corner. Sometimes the sounds works other times it does not. Can anyone...

While the TV is on do the following:

1. Press the "Right Arrow" button on the remote.
2. Press the "Left Arrow" button on the remote
3. press the number keys in order, 1-9

I believe you are in the TV's service menu and the Blue/Green/Black are just test patters. If so, pressing these keys will eventually change the pattern..

Get to the main page of the service menu and press the [power] button on the remote.

Help! Pressed a button now only a blue screen!

Hmmm,sounds like you may have damaged the remote or maybe the batteries have run down where you where laying on it,try a fresh set of batteries in the remote or failing that try adjusting the tv manually by getting a chair,standing on it and pressing the buttons on the tv,also try another feed from another source just to make sure it is not the sattelite at fault.

Yes, I seem to have fixed the problem on my Akai using some creative google finds. One of two things worked - not sure which:

1. Leave the set unplugged overnight - it must let the electronics reset when the residual charges clear
2. For my Akai (remotes and models vary), hit in remote's sequence quickly - brightness, freeze, menu, enter - this places you in some screen that offers a hard reset option. That didn't work right away, but i did it before the option above and then the set worked again.

My problem was really odd because it worked for the component inputs and you could see the video and TV signals inside the PIP windows, but not full screen as primary input. Why the TV could 'see' the signals in a PIP windows but not detect them as primary I have no idea.

AKAI LCT3285TA seems to be stuck in "Standby"


We own a small TV repair shop in Ohio and have ran into similar problems with this TV.

To fix this problem we replaced 3 caps near and in the powersuppy of the TV.

This TV is very sensitive to electrical problems ( more then most if that's possible) so check the caps near the PSU.

Over all this TV is a fairly decent product.

Blue Vertical Line- Akai PDP4298ED

I have an Akai PDP4273M that developed the same problem. Checking around some of the av forums, I found a couple of threads that indicated it could be dust or bad contact around the ribbon cable connections on the video control board. I removed the back, loosened the ribbon cables on the board and used my small compressor with an air gun to blow out the dust all around the board and the ribbon connectors. Reconnected everything, turned on tv and stripe did not come back. Problem fixed! Nice and cheap solution.
