20 Most Recent Akai CFTD2085V 20" TV/VCR/DVD Questions & Answers

You're might correct that your unit goes to overheating which produce an out of regulation on the supply. This is mostly caused of the ff:
1. Leaky filter capacitor on the regulator section - this will affect the regulation of supply which causes subsequent shutdown 2. Leaky volt regulator IC - it will overheat fast. 3. Leaky filter capacitor on the system supply.
Diagnosing the faulty parts is not diy so i've advice you to look for a qualified tech to do the job.
Have a nice day! Thanks for using fixya.

Unfortunately they are a real bare to fix. Unless its a jammed disc it is probably a defective transport. If it is under warranty have it repaired otherwise get an external DVD player.

Sorry I don't know of any easy fix for the integrated units.

If connected to cable or satellite your tv will work after digital conversion occurs. If using an antenna, look up a local TV station to see if they're already broadcasting in digital. Most are. Enter that DIGITAL channel # using your remote. If you get a picture, you don't need a converter box.

It's either a faulty power board, or a faulty switch board or an overheating issue and the set is going into protection mode.

You need a television engineer to diagnose and fix

The applicable code(s) would be in the remote control, if it is compatible.

Attach the antenna to the appropriate connector on the rear

EHT or Extra High Tension is the power supplied to the final anode of the cathode ray tube.

The EHT is traditionally generated by the line transformer from the flyback pulse of the line oscillator/amplifier.
The generated high frequency high voltage current was from the outset rectified by a thermionic diode (eg. EY51, EY86) but by the late 1960s/early 1970s technology brought high voltage diodes and semiconductors rapidly replaced the old technology and the output from the line transformer then typically fed the anode via a semiconductor voltage doubler.

The rectified EHT was originally smoothed by a high voltage oil-filled capacitor but that was soon deleted in favour of spraying the outside of the CRT with a metallic paint and grounding it. This became the high voltage smoothing capacitor with the glass of the CRT being the dielectric and the final anode the positive pole...

Check if the channel is off-the-air due to an issue at the transmitter. After a severe storms, some local stations lost their transmitter because the tower fell. More often, the transmitter hardware can fail. One station repeater near me had an interesting period where it didn't get the incoming signal from the primary transmitter.

Check that your antenna hasn't shifted to point away from the transmitter. Reposition the antenna, if needed. If you have an amplifier on your antenna, check if that has been damaged. If it has been damaged, replace it. My household found that the antenna/splitter became a filter for one VHF channel when damaged by a lightning strike. The check was to connect the antenna to one TV without the amplifier.

The other common issue is interference. Has there been construction in your area that added a large building between you and the transmitter?

I hope this helps.

First try checking the "auto off" function. I am not familiar with Akai TVs so this advice is very basic. Use the 'Menu' button and find Settings, (It might also be listed as Set Up). Go into this section of the settings. There should be a feature listed as 'Time' or 'Timer'. Set this to Off.
Your other option, if it is a brand new TV is to contact the store you bought it from and ask their advice.
