At first the power would come on and the DVD would spin and be identified as akai on the TV. Then it stopped. After a couple of retries I smelled amonia (odd - I thought). Then it would power up and down more quickly. Now it turns itself off within a few seconds and never gets to the load DVD step. Smell no longer evident. I unhooked the system and tried the player by itself - same results. Seems like a power supply problem to me but I'm not Tech.
I have a samsung 42" plasma tv that will randomly power off, then restart. Does not seem to be temperature related, checked voltages and adjusted. I have a directtv with dvr as input?

You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.
Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.
If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.
Sounds like your TV has lost the DVD channel. Turn off TV and make sure the DVD player is connected to TV and is playing a DVD. Now put you TV on and press the SOURCE or AV button on your TV remote until you can see the DVD channel. In older TVs you may need select channel and tune it manually using the TV setup.
Hi blossomp, does it play up on other DVD disc...playing intermitently? If it does, then the dvd loader assembly needs servicing. Could be dirt and smudge accumulated on the tiny gears not forgetting the Collimating lense. cotton bud and glass cleaner will do the tricks on your lense...don't rub too much. disassembly of the dvd loader is easier than on DVD ROM of your PC. Good Luck.
Wow , with the unit sitting for two years, you could have all sorts of problems now. Most likely back when the unit stopped working, the spindle motor was bad, as that was the problem on almost all of these types of CD players. Now though, if the power supply capacitors are not shot, the laser assembly could also be bad. My best advice on this unit? Can it and start out with new equipment. Good Luck
If your tv has line out jacks, run cables to the "play" jacks in the back of the 300. If your running satelite, run the sound cables to the player instead of the tv. If your running a vcr player seperate, you can run those sound cable to the back ot the 300. The video cable would go straight to the tv.
The picture is rolling because there is no sync signal in the composite output. Are you using the RCA jack or the S-video output? Is there another small TV you could hook up for a test to see if the problem appears there? If it does, then the Akai has the issue and needs to be examined further.
If not, the TV input may have an issue. You didn't say what the TV is but there is the possibility the video input is looking for external sync from the DVD but that's a bit of a stretch. Can you feed a different source into the video input of the TV to see if you get the same result?
Hope this helps.
well maybe you should learn as thats a great call on that one!!! sounds like something over heated and burned up now your missing a voltage ro somewhere you could call and get a print if you feel brave but I myself would leave this one for a pro.
I think that there is overloads on that specific socket that you're using try to change the socket. Or see if you have connected the rca cable properly because if the sound is connected to the video of the dvd output it might cause overload on the dvd which makes it turn off for safety reasons.
Good luck with it!!
