Question about Akai Televison & Video

3 Answers

AKAI MODEL CT3216. SET COMES ON AT PLUG-IN. PIC COMES ON AT 10SEC. NO PIC PROBLEM. SET HAS POOR AUDIO WITH NO CONTROL FROM CUSTOMER CONTROLS. SET CUTS OFF IN ABOUT 15 SEC. LEAVE PLUGGED IN AND IT COMES BACK ON IN ABOUT 25 SEC. NO CONTROL FROM FRONT PANEL, THOUGH HIGH-PITCHED SQUEAL WHEN CHANNEL (PROGRAM) BUTTON IS DEPRESSED. I WONDER IF FRONT PANEL IS SOMEHOW INVOLVED, BUT NO MENU COMES ON SCREEN, AND NO OBVIOUS PROBLEM WITH PIC, AND NO DIALOG BOX ON SCREEN.

    Earlier suggestions did not work. I think there was a bit of a misunderstanding: I did not mean I had trouble with the menu; I meant that the menu was not jumping on screen to indicate some trouble. There is no menu at all. Help.

Akai are known as "throw away" tv's. Rather then waste your time with costly repairs. You would be much better served purchasing a new unit. I would recommend a name brand like sony, panasonic, hitachi. It will have a brand new factory warranty. Also the money you save on the cheaper tv's is not worth it because this is the end result. I would check out your local circuit city, or best buy. So you can shop around for a comparable unit.
Thanks,
Lee

It seems problem is in microprocessor IC ,the function of this IC is controlling the system,that's command the menu on screen, volume indicator on the screen, no channel program on the screen and cannot control the control panel button and to the audio also,.
First to do is to checked the all parts sorrounding or associated to this IC,for leaky or dry capacitor ,change value resistor or open and shorted or open transistor,and checked also the solder joint for crack ,brittle or cold. If all of this are in good condition then i decided that microprocessor IC is depected, change that IC so the performance will be better again..or find a technician to do repair for you in order to avoid high voltage shock....

    Akai MODEL CT3216






    We just had the same problem.
    Picture-only went out for days and only returned in flashes. One mechanic
    over the phone said it likely was the power supply. Replace tv because it's
    too expensive to replace the power supply, he said. 2nd mechanic on phone said
    it likely was the bulb. Replace the tv because it's too expensive to replace
    a bulb and Akai is a lousy company from which to get parts. Third guy came
    over to look at it. Miraculously, the tv picture came on when he (only)
    turned it on, and hasn't gone off since. If it happens again, he suggested,
    unplug the power cord for 20 minutes--that's the black cord on the left side
    of the rear panel--left, assuming you're facing the TV screen front-on. Like
    a computer, he says, sometimes these things just need to be rebooted. It's
    not the power supply, he said. Otherwise, we'd have no picture OR sound. It's
    not the bulb, he said. Otherwise, we wouldn't get flashes of picture. Hope
    this helps somebody save money, and experience the joy we just experienced
    this week when we learned we didn't have to replace our 1 1/2-year-old LCD
    TV. In the meantime, we're keeping our fingers crossed!

I have a AKAI LCT3701AD 37 inch TV don't have the original remote control but bought a universal remote control but is not working Why?


YOU WILL STILL NEED TO PROGRAM THE NEW REMOTE FROM THE MANUAL THAT CAME WITH THE REMOTE. NORMALLY THIER ARE TWO WAYS TO PROGRAM A REMOTE EITHER MANUALLY OR TO DO IT AUTOMATICALLY. YES THE ORIGIONAL REMOTE IS ALREADY SET UP FOR YOUR MODEL OF TV BUT WITH THAT SAID TRY TO PROGRAM IT BY BOTH PARTS OF THE MANUAL. i AM USING A 55 INCH SMART TV AND HAVE DONE THIS AND ON OTHER SMART TV'S. ALSO YOU CAN GO TO THE WEBSITE OF THE REMOTE THAT YOU PURCHASE AND LOOK FOR VIDEOS ON HOW TO SET IT UP. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP LET SOMEONE HERE KNOW. GOOD LUCK.

NO PICTURE, ONLY AUDIO IS AVAILABLE


Try this site. http://electronics.ebest.in/tv/akai/akai-50pw7/12/2/2717.html But 50PW7 denotes only the model number of the set. What is the part number of the damaged board? Search with part number by internet. You can get it from anywhere. Part number will be printed on the PCB itself.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Aai have the following AKAI Audio Stereo System and no Idea how to connect them. Please help Akai Model AP-D210 turntable Akai model CS-F14 Stereo cassette deck Akai model AT-K110 Fm Am Tuner Akai...


In general, outs to ins.

If nothing else, get the manuals for the preamp and the EQ. You'll probably have to pay for them.

Google it.

Akai PR-A04 preamplifier << This is the control center and where everything comes together.

Akai AP-D210 turntable (ONLY to jacks that say "PHONO"
Akai EA-G40 Stereo Graphic Equalizer (in the Tape 1 Out/In set)
Akai CS-F14 Stereo cassette deck (in the Tape Out/In set of the EQUALIZER) *
Akai AT-K110 Fm Am Tuner (to the Tuner inputs)
Akai DT-100 Audio Tuner (to the Aux inputs)
Akai PA-W04 Amplfier (to the amp outputs)

* This will allow you to Equalize the Tape on the Record or the Playback side.

Read some audio magazines or websites. Get to understand Tape Monitor Loops.

Don't use excessive EQ.

Poor sound cqality on a Samsung DLP TV


If you are receving your HD via a cablebox, check the volume and audio settings in the box's menu. Some boxes have internal volume controls. If the level coming out of the box is below a certain level, you may experience low or poor sound quality. You can also check the audio settings to assure that they are set to the original settings.
