-Sensor light does not stay on; unit is not corresponding with remote.
-I changed the batteries in remote-did not help.
-Odd-but when I plug the TV plug into a different plug-in the sensor comes on and stays on-still does not work with remote.
-Once I power off at the TV side bar-it will not sensor up again
By searching this site it seems to be a common Akai issue? We have maybe had the TV a year
I don't know if I solved the problem. I find though if I turn the TV off and unplug it and then plug back in when I want to watch it - it works. I don't know why but it does. My remote still does not connect to the LCD but I have cable HDTV so chanel changes work from that control.
I am pretty ********** that it is only a year old and this has happened but what can you do? We live in a disposable world.
I was trying to get to your Premium assistance Plan from where I wrote my issue but I don't know where to pay or what to do on your site it keeps taking me all over.

Change input device to some other like a DVD player and see. Look for any loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable or socket. Look for any jammed buttons on remote or on control panel. Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.
Most times it's video read issue such as a dirty lens on the laser.If you smoke in the house or use a fireplace there is a lot of airborn stuff to leave a slight haze on the lens making reading the disk impossible.Try a standard cd or dvd lens cleaner.The on that looks like a cd and uses alcohol on one of the cleaning brushes on the disk you've got a 50 50 chance.
The power supply might have a shorted/defective diode(s), blown resistors, capacitors if the light is blinking on the front of the LCD.

The power supply is defective if the TV fails to power up or the front light just blinks, common failure on these LCDs with MLT166A power supplies.

i cannot find the model # to my akai tv/dvd combo where is it? AND ALSO I DO NOT HAVE THE REMOTE TO IT LOST IT DURING MY MOVE. HOW CAN I PURCHASE I NEW REMOTE OR WHICE UNIVERSAL ONE SHOULD I BUY! PLEASE HELP
Some 1000uf electrolytic capacitors have failed on the power supply board (3x 16v & 2x 35v radial). You can get them at Radio Shack or your favorite parts house. They are easy enough to replace if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not, bring the tv to a repair shop & tell them that you want the capacitors replaced on the power supply. It shouldn't be too expensive.
To get to the power supply, unplug the set from everything including power. Put the set face down on something soft that won't damage the screen. Remove all the screws from the rear cover, they have arrows pointing to them. When you get to the dvd player, care will be needed to get the cover off.
The power supply board is on the upper right side of the chassis and is not covered by anything. Look for the capacitors that are "bulging" on the top. These will need to be replaced. Good ones look flat on top.
Remove the bad capacitors noting there orientation (they are polarized). The "negitive" side will have a "band" printed on the capacitor. Go get the new ones & replace them carefully aligning the polarities correctly. Reassemble the case & you should be done.
it would seem the akai remote codes you have are not programed in the remote you should wright to akai and tell them 1000s of people you have chatted to have the same problem is there any way you could send me a replacement please or could you give me the codes and i will program them my self thank you hope you get this email or letter or phone call what have you to lose.
