Whenever I play a DVD in the player, the screen rolls (as if the vertical hold is wrong). Watching anything else on the TV is fine, so it's not the vertical hold. It looks like the picture would be fine, and the sound is fine also, we just can't get the screen to stop rolling.
I really don't have a clue what to do.
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.

rolling tv screens is an indication of a vertical hold problem
if there is a tab in the onscreen menu , use it to remove the sensitivity of the signal input from the dvd unit
if there is no such adjustment available then the problem may be the first signs of a tv problem so talk with a repair shop
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.
does it roll on normal tv viewing?
This is what we call a vertical fault. I don't believe it was because of what happened but U never know. The vertical IC or a faulty cap can also cause this problem. If it rolls on your regular tv programs then it is a fault in the vertical section of the TV
