Question about Akai Televison & Video

3 Answers

The DVD player on my AKAI CFTD2085 model TV won't read a DVD, it just makes a whirring noise. I tried to connect another DVD to the TV via the inputs (yellow, red, white) in the back. The DVD player works but there is a buzzing side noise along with the regular audio. I've tried turning them on/off, disconnecting/reconnecting the leads, pressing the 369 keys, etc. Is there a way to get rid of the side noise?

    I should have stated that there's three issues in one: 1) what could be causing the TV DVD player to make the whirring noise? 2) the manual for the unit mentioned attaching a VCR player but not a DVD so is it not recommended? and 3) if it's not the RCA (which is new), what would be another probable cause? Thanks!

Try increasing the volume level from your other DVD player.
Do you have that buzzing noise when watching any other video from cable or satellite?

    When the earth cable is missing from the metal body then you normally get a buzzing sound

Pioneer dv-2010 dvd player makes a whirring noise


That's because the lazer on the tray is trying to read the disc. Does this happen to other discs? When the lazer can't read the file, the drive spins up the disc to help it read it.

My AKAI tv/dvd combo - DVD quit working.


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.

good luck

These units have particularly bad reliability and generally fail far before the usual ten year life of regular TV's. You don't say how old this unit is but judging by the model number and nature of the problem (power supply trouble) I would not recommend spending money on repairing this unit.

Borken remote; universal remote doesn't work!


I have had on order since December 2007 the Akai replacement remote #WIR3500001-EQ01 the Akai TV/DVD combo model #CFTD2011. I called each month for 5 months, being told each time that it was on backorder. A few days ago, I received a letter in the mail stating that this remote is no longer made and is not available.

I too have tried universal remotes without any luck. If anyone has a resolution, it would be greatly appreciated.
