I've just been given an Akai vs-j200ea without a remote. I've tuned the tv to the video and I get a picture but it there is an icon with a speaker crossed out coming up on the tv screen - I'm guessing somehow the mute option was activated via the remote control last time the video was played and somehow its been saved - how do I remove the mute issue (I have no remote control - is there any kind of reset button inside?) or fix the problem if its not a mute problem?

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.
I have had a look at the Curry's Partmaster website. The have a lot of Akai Remotes which seem to be priced around £14.99. You could take a look. If you still have the manual it might tell you the model number of the remote. For instance RC81024. The remotes on this site all have numbers like the above all starting with RC. If you find the remote number it will help chase down the correct remote.
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 shack
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 Akai
was 11676. Take care...
If you are sure, that there's no way to do it manually on the TV, there are only two solutions: buy a new remote controlaccording to your TV set model (sometimes it's hard to find) or buy a universal remote control
I am afraid thatyou need the original remote to access tuning universal remotes will not give you this option. An original remote will probably be very expensive check with your local TV dealer.
I hope this helps, these unit were made by akai: here is the akai fix for this problem. Hold down the "F" button on the remote (top left button) and press the mute button. This should make the key go away. Thanks
