My tv remote doesnt work?

Make sure Batteries are good. Even if they are new they still can be drained and bad. Make sure they are in the right way. make sure the connectors inside the remote are not dirty. Clen them with A very fine sand paper.

My remote for my akai pdp42z5ta stopped working


Yes, I can help you either fix the original or get you a brand new one. By the way, did you change the batteries. I know you did, but this procedure is the first step. If you change the batteries and the remote doesn't work, the problem can be inside the remote, specially if it happen to be dropped. Or the sensor in front the tv may be bad if does not respond to the remote. The best way to check the remote control is with infrared checker, an special equipment I have at the shop. I can ckeck it with that for you and fix it as well. Please e-mail me at

Remote that came with tv wont work

I stumbled across this page while the owner's manual for my remote was lost. I've now found the manual (after not having any luck finding the solution on the web)!

The AKAI KC02-D2 remote operates my AKAI PDP42Z5TA 42" Plasma HD Television. It may work with others as well, but that's the TV I use it for. If the batteries are removed (or dead) for a while, it will lose its programming. Here's how to reprogram it.

AKAI = 231, 218, 221, 222, 225, 226, 227, 228

1. Turn on the Device you want to program. The remote can be programmed by pressing the 3 Digit Brand Code number listed in the code table of this programming guide. If multiple codes are listed, you may have to enter several codes to complete the steps below. (Note: For programming the VCR, a tape must be loaded/inserted first.) If your Brand is not listed, please use the Manual Search menthod or Auto Search method (Section C & D below).

2. Press and hold the SET button for about 3 seconds until the current Device LED lights (TV, VCR, DVD, STB.), then release the SET button.

3. Press the device button you want to program (TV, VCR, DVD, STB.) then the selected Device LED will light on.

4. Enter the 3 Digit Brand Code for the desired Device. For example, enter "2" "1" "8" for AKAI TV. When entering each digit, the Device LED will flash one time. After all 3 digit numbers are entered, the Device LED will turn off. If the code is not valid, the Device LED will flash three times then turn off. Check the code list and repeat from the above step 2.

(*The manual contains a huge list of 3-digit codes for various devices. If you're looking for a specific one, just ask.)

Akai 42 plasma controller can not be programed tried every code

i just had this same problem with my 42" akai plasma and after getting no help no where i finally figured it out on my own. The model i have is a PDP42Z5TA but my guess it will work with yours also.if your remote is like mine there should be a "set" button somewhere up at the the top.hold this down till the "tv" button goes solid red. with the tv on or off keep pressing the power button till the tv turns on or off( dont go too fast) or you can pass it up easily cause when the tv does turn on or off you have to hit enter to lock it in.

Remote won't work

Is it a multi-device remote at all?
This set is probably a rebranded Samsung so you might try their codes or check Samsung's website for a code listing for that model.
