    Well after digging around, it looks like AKAI, ILO, and SCOTT are all owned by emerson, which makes it hard to find support. It seems that diffrent retailers carry the diffrent brands, ie ILO seems to be exclusive to walmart. This allows the manufacture to make the same tv and slap a diffrent name on it so they can broaden there consumer base. I would suggest contacting local retailers that carry these brands as they should have direct contact information.

    Hope this helps

Where can i get the manuel for my akai television ctd1390

That is going to likely be hard---Akai has sites in Europe but I have looked in North America etc and they have none---at one time they were owned or part of Samsung but that seems to be a dead end also.

Best chance is Google the model number with "manual" after it to see what you can find.

Key with Google it the search word used which is what this site uses to attract people to ask here.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

I have an akai 27 lcd tv which shut down while watching. No sound no picture but the power switch is flashing red.I don;t know if it is a power supply problem or a burnt out backlight.I haven't opened the...

I would suggest to start by measuring the voltages from the power supply to the main/back light circuitry. If the voltages are low or jumping up and down, that means a defective power supply.
If the red light is blinking, the power supply has a shorted component.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

The only place you will find any ILO parts are onsites like or ebay. There are no new Parts available for Ilo or polaroid . Your only hope is to find used parts.
