Question about Akai DHT300 System

1 Answer

Akai DHT300 I have an Akai DHT300 which has worked perfectly for almost four years now. Lately, it's been playing intermitently, stops playing a DVD after a while like the DVD is dirty. I have to unplug the power cord and start the dvd from the beginning and it gets going. However, the same problem persists after a while. I really want to find out if this is something that can be fixed before I invest in another system. Thanks

Hi blossomp, does it play up on other DVD disc...playing intermitently? If it does, then the dvd loader assembly needs servicing. Could be dirt and smudge accumulated on the tiny gears not forgetting the Collimating lense. cotton bud and glass cleaner will do the tricks on your lense...don't rub too much. disassembly of the dvd loader is easier than on DVD ROM of your PC.
Good Luck.

How to use a surround sound with tv not just dvd


If you have cable/FiOS TV/SATV,than you will have to connect a digital(fiber optic SPIDF or RCA type) form the set-top box to the suuround-sound system to get TRUE surround sound.I haven't come across a TV with this ouput,but not sure if some do.(If you use RCA analog audio cords from the ouput of theTV itself to an input of the sound system it will work,but it will be a glorified stereo sound,not true surround sound.

Connecting TV


If your tv has line out jacks, run cables to the "play" jacks in the back of the 300. If your running satelite, run the sound cables to the player instead of the tv. If your running a vcr player seperate, you can run those sound cable to the back ot the 300. The video cable would go straight to the tv.

Hope this helps.

I Can't Use DTS


hey... just reading the manual.. p28 "enjoying the sound effects" note says that "this machine is not equipped with dts digital surround decoder. when you select digital sound, sound is not output during playback disc with dts." not sure of the implications of this, but sounds like the problem you spoke of

Akai DHT300 screen rolling


The picture is rolling because there is no sync signal in the composite output. Are you using the RCA jack or the S-video output? Is there another small TV you could hook up for a test to see if the problem appears there? If it does, then the Akai has the issue and needs to be examined further. If not, the TV input may have an issue. You didn't say what the TV is but there is the possibility the video input is looking for external sync from the DVD but that's a bit of a stretch. Can you feed a different source into the video input of the TV to see if you get the same result? Hope this helps.

DVD power on


I think that there is overloads on that specific socket that you're using try to change the socket. Or see if you have connected the rca cable properly because if the sound is connected to the video of the dvd output it might cause overload on the dvd which makes it turn off for safety reasons. Good luck with it!!
