Volume control stuck on max AKAI CT2716

Received a shock from the control buttons while cleaning the screen. Now the volume is stuck on max. The indicator bar that shows when you are controlling volume stays on the screen. The remote does not solve the problem. The indicator light, next to the power button is flashing. Is this an easy fix? Is it more cost effective to try to get it fixed, or just buy a new TV?

It seems that you most likely allowed some liquid to flow down to the circuit board. I can probably gaurantee that there is damage done to the control circuits for the uPC or the uPC itself.

You will have to give the set out for service. You may be lucky and it is only the control board including its electonics that has to be replaced. If the damage was done to the uPC or if there is a damaged buffer IC on the main circuit board between the uPC and the control panel this repair will be very costly compared to just replacing the control panel cirucuit board.

When cleaning a TV screen use a very soft lint free tissue paper. Use only some light spray of a very weak or diluted glass cleaner, or just water on to the tissue paper. Never put enough liquid that there is a possiblity of some of it dripping down in to the circuit board.

I personal use a light spray of water on a soft tissue. This is safe, and will not remove the optical coating on the screen surface.

The volume stuck on max volume and will not respond to remorol or side panels


Some buttons on remote or on control panel is stuck. Look for it and try releasing them. Remove batteries from Remote and try adjustment from control panel. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Tv volume stuck on max, volume + signal stuck, button is fine.


The problem is on the board with the controls----if remote receiver is not on same board disconnect that board--if it is unsolder the vol and channel buttons--the front buttons have priority over the remote--buttons will look fine but the switch under each will be your problem---better hope it is as only other cause is a microprocessor gone mad.

If you have a Ohm meter I can tell you how to prove this--going to have to get at the buttons--if you want to prove it is or is not a issue with the micro switches you are going to have to unsolder or test them.

Volume Control


check the up volume button on the set. it sounds like it is stuck in the on position. You can open the back and disconnect the wire harness to the control buttons. This will verify if the volume up button is the problem.

Volume stuck maxed out


the intrenal switch that controls the volume up is shorted. you need to have it replaced. the short of the switch doesn't allow any other buttons on the set to work because the micro is recieving the volume up command. it's as if there is an invisible finger pushing the volume up button. the switch is a tachtile switch which is very inexpencive to repair about $50.00 total. if you want to do the repair yourself be aware there are voltages that remain in the set that can be harmful. 50% of the time the cause of these switches shorting is improper screen cleaning. some people spray glass cleaner directly on the screen, this is bad. the cleaner drips into the set and lands on the PC board where the buttons are housed. but I've seen the other 50% also which is hummidity, dust(not anyones fault this just happens), and simple switch failure. so becareful repairing it your self
