Well, the initial password is "0000" if this does not allow you into change the parental control settings... you need to contact Akai for further assistance. Support for this TV can be found on this website: http://www.akai.com/contact.asp. Best wishes, I hope this was helpful.

    The only known phone number is the Singapore number listed on their website Tel : (65) 6476 6686. I am in US EST timezone... they are 12 hours ahead of us here. Try calling them after 9am, their local time.

I believe you are referring to blacked channels. If I am wrong let me know.

Go into your settings and scroll to where the parental settings/V-Chip setting is. It depends on what exact model you Akaia TV is but it should be under the first TV settings screen.

This input your password(if prompt to do so) and it will come up with options to change it. Go and chang it to what you desire to have it at. Some differ from other depending on what year the TV was made as they have changed the ratings system a few times in the past 10 years or so.

Let me know if you have questions or if you need a walkthrough.

Take it easy and I hope I could help!

42 inch flat screen shows v-chip block tv-14 lsv what does that mean? tv fades tremendously turns blue then shuts off


V-chip Block
TV- 14 - this is a rating for movies and TV programs. Basically means PG-13 like the old movie theater rating.

lsv- means, language, ***, violence.

You TV can be set to block these programs.
In you menu look for a catagory called "locks" or "ratings"

there you will find the options of what can be veiwed and what will be blocked.
if you everything to be available, just disable all settings.
if you want to choose different things to be allowed, just click on the icons and they become blocked.

LCD projector shuts off durning use


u have not mentioned how long u have been using this projector. either the lamp life is low or the circuitry protecting the lamp temperature is defective or even the air intake of the fan is inadequate, a filter is fitted for air flow if this is clogged or blocked, lamp temp will rise and unit shuts down. if lamp indicator is yellow or red it is time to change the lamp. if it is red - lamp is totally out, if u turn on the unit four times without replacing lamp, the unit simply wont turn on. one other possibility is power cable and power connections. check power cable too.

Program Blocked errors


I was having the same problem with the constant blue screen appearing with different error codes. Here is how I fixed the problem on my Elements 19": I did a channel search. I found there were 68 analog channels and 274 digital channels. On a hunch, I went into Skip Channels and checked off all the digital channels since I have basic cable. Although the tv is HD and did pick up the basic HD channels, I choose to skip those two since I do not have a cable box on that tv and only the basic channels were in HD (about 8). I watched my tv for two hours and blue screen appeared once every 30 minutes, but the next day it did not appear at all.

I concluded that those error messages are because those channels are blocked and we have not checked them off to be skipped. When checking the Skip Channels, as you highlight each channel it will either come in or it will not. You will find the "Blocked Program" errors are coming from channels that do not come in and you will need to skip those channels.

I hope you can understand how I solved my blue screen problem on my Elements tv. Good luck!

I have a AKAI CFTD 2085 model tv. Is it digital or do I need a converter box?


If connected to cable or satellite your tv will work after digital conversion occurs. If using an antenna, look up a local TV station to see if they're already broadcasting in digital. Most are. Enter that DIGITAL channel # using your remote. If you get a picture, you don't need a converter box.

HDTV?


HD ready?? NO - - Compatible? Yes but you'll need the converter.. The US post office will be giving away coupons for the converter. Google search the HD converter issue and you'll have a wealth of information.
