    yes I do, I bought it this afternoon

  • Punkin59 Jun 11, 2008

    "Bring the menu display up on the TV screen and switch to Parental mode. It should ask you for that password. Enter it and unlock the set.." The TV is in Parental Mode and asks for a pass code that's why I need help I tried the F button & mute and the red key did go away but I still need a pass code or a way to reset it, Thanks

  • Punkin59 Jun 11, 2008

    The TV does not have a reset button is there anyway to reset the pass code without going inside the TV and finding the backup battery?

  • Punkin59 Jun 12, 2008

    The pass code is 6688 I tried calling Akai first but they were already closed before I went to Google and found FixYa you ought to name it FuckYa I wish I would have waited to talk to Akai before my ******** gave you $9.99 for **** I already knew...hell that's 2 gallons of gas and a coke..............

Do u own the unit

    i ask it just for a verification.

    do u own the unit?
    (because often kids at home ask this when they dont know what the pass code is set by their parents) :)


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 11, 2008

    Bring the menu display up on the TV screen and switch to Parental mode.
    It should ask you for that password. Enter it and unlock the set..

    Another
    way which I wouldn't recommend unless you know your way around the
    innards of a TV set. Would be to find the battery backup inside the
    set, Remove it, go hqave a cup of coffee and then come back and
    reinsert the battery. You may have to retune the set but the parental
    control should be off.

    Does your set have a reset button somewhere on the back. If it does then it will do the same as removing the battery.

    As a last resort contact the manufacturer and ask them how to disable the problem.


    For all AKAI direct view sets: hold down "F" button on remote (top left
    button), and press mute. This removes the little red key from the OSD. so that too.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 11, 2008

    first try is f and mute button.

    second will be a reset button if available.

    third will be a back up battery removal option.

    these are the three kinds.

    if first try is norking for you you wil get fixed by the third one surely.

    WARNING: for trying the third fix u must be experienced in electronics. else there is a risk of shock.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 11, 2008

    dont forget to accept the solution if u go by it.

I have a 32" tv... I must have press a button... bcuz now my tv showing blue screen with a small picture in red of a key... can u plz help me how to remove this and get my regular cable tv back on...


Hi msvkam

To answer your question;
You probably have the parental lock on,
Here`s the procedure and factory default code to unlock it:

Pass Code Menu
This menu allows you to change the access code for the Parental Guide
functions of the TV set. Pressing the .Menu. key when Pass Code
Control is highlighted. This will turn on or off the Pass Code function. With
the Pass Code function ON, you can also change the Pass Code. Use
the down arrow key to highlight .Pass Code,. then enter the new Pass
Code using the numeric keypad. Press the left arrow key when finished.
1. The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case you forget your new pass code.

Hope this help,
Cheers

Want to use only the cable remote, can't find the code


I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

Need setup codes for Akai KC01-B2 to run with comcast remote


I have an Akai 42"lct & had the same problem. I bought an universal remote URC R6 at walmart for $19. I can now control the tv, u-vrerse cable, panasonic surround system & still have the aux open. You must use the "learn" method but I can control channels, volume, record, menues for all devices as well as setup, record for dvr & more. I hope this helps.........

Remote wont work


Our experience is that most "Universal" remotes do not support the menus used to adjust Akai product. I don't know who the US distributers of Akai are but if the original remote is still available this is usually the best way to access the menus & adjust the set. Some operating instructions may be available as PDF files online & it might be worth searching for them to get the best results.
