Question about Akira EPM-420A 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Akira Plasma not working anymore!

Help please. I bought the set from a store that was closing. I checked in the store and even watched a DVD on it. I brought it home with me and now it doesn't work. The standby light turns onto green the screen blinks then the standby light turns red and the screen goes black! I have tried plugging it into different outlets thinking maybe it wasn't getting enough power but that doesn't work. Do all plasma TV's have fuses? Could it possibly be a fuse that has blown? Please post reply at your earliest convenience. Thank-you!

I bought a DVD from the U.K., but it's not working on my DVD at home. I live in the U.S. I need some help. How do you make a foreign DVD work on our models?


The answer is generally you cannot. The recording industry refused to produce DVDs until the DVD player manufacturers agreed to a regional system, whereby DVD players sold in a particular region could only play DVDs marked for that region or marked "Universal" or "Region Code 0" (this is supposedly to discourage illegal copying). Your best bet is to use a computer DVD player set up for Region 2 (US is Region 1), then connect the video output of the computer to the monitor input of the TV if your TV has one (either VGA or DVI), or just watch it on your computer.

Earlier models of DVD players would allow you to change the region up to five times, but would permanently lock in the region set on the fifth change. Newer models don't even have that option because it was relatively easy to hack the region change counter. There is an "under-the-counter" DVD player hacking industry in Europe, but there is little demand for that in the US - partly because US recording industry lawyers can be even more bothersome and expensive to deal with than European bureaucrats, and partly because few people here obtain out-of-region discs.

I can not get the picture to show on my television from the dvd from my home theather system i just bought. any suggestions as to what i need to do. I can get the sound just no picture from the...


on the remote for thetelevision there will be a signal input switch or button. Check to see where or which input the DVD/CD player is pluged into. As an example: when you watch TV the input would be 'TV'. When you want to watch a DVD the switch should be changed to the corresponding input #. All the inputs are labled on the back of the TV. The TV audio out should go the audio in on the home theater system.

If your TV remote can be programmed control the Theater system, do that and try to use as few remotes as possible to avoid getting confused. You will need the home theater brand and look in the TV's manual for the input code. There are probably more than one so be patient.

Music on DVDs is louder than the dialogue.


In the Audio set up menu, see if there is a setting to turn off surround sound. I believe it's in your owners manual also. LMK

Picture is fuzzy


Do you have a HIGH DEFINITION satellite / cable SERVICE? Unless you are specifically set up to receive HD - your picture will still be back around 400 lines - and both LCD and Plasma HD units are notorious for looking WORSE when viewing NON-HD PROGRAMMING.

Unless your DVD is capable up converting up to (pseudo) HD, don't expect much there either.

Not sure how the INSIGNIA is set up for inputs, but good old Wal*Mart sells a FANTASTIC UNIVERSAL REMOTE called AVEX that is an absolute JOY to program and work with - and it's only about $20!

Put a DVD in your player and turn it on and let it play. I doubt that you are actually looking for a "CHANNEL" - but instead an *input* that is electronically controlled by your tv.

Go to the "TV" position on your remote and find the "INPUT" button. Pressing it should bring up a menu of different inputs that your tv has. Use your center UP/DOWN button to switch inputs until you see your DVD playing through one of them.
