LCD TV/DVD Combo image washout

Help! We bought an Akai Tv/DVD Combo about a year ago (can't remember the model #).... I works great - sometimes. More often than not, the first time you load the DVD (we use it for slide shows) the images are totally washed out. Nothing you can do with the adjustments seems to help, oddly enough, it seems to only correct after ejecting and reloading the DVD multiple times. Any ideas? I contacted Akai via e-mail and they never replied.

Instead of reloading the DVD multiple times, when the set is doing this try jaring it with the palm of your hand on a corner near where the DVD goes in. If it clears up when you tap it, maybe you just have a bad connection inside that needs repairing.

I have a AKAI LCT3701AD 37 inch TV don't have the original remote control but bought a universal remote control but is not working Why?

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.

Akai 32" wide screen lcd tv/dvd combo LCT3201AD

This may be an instance were the idea was great but the execution wasn't thought out. I've heard of several related problems that may be related. Both the TV and the DVD player tend to produce heat, not in great abundance, but together a sizable amount of heat. The power supply may have been ample for the TV at first but with the addition of the DVD player was not able to handle the extra load. If still under warranty you're all set. If not you might call Akai and see what they might be able to do for you.

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

My remote broke and I can't find a replacement that will work.

I crushed my AKAI remote a week after I got it and I purchased a Logitech Harmony remote. It's kind of expensive (100.00) but you install the software in your computer and connect the remote to your computer. A screen comes up and you can type in an unlimited number of devices. All you do is put in the brand and model number and the computer will program the remote for that device. I have at least 10 different devices programmed into mine and works perfectly. Actually the price isn't bad because they wanted 85.00 to replace the remote just for the TV.

Voire lcd20v31 tv dvd combo

Wow - unbelievable - they should be sued. I just bought a floor model that had been returned. The returnee did not return the remote or the manual, so it appeared to be a great buy. Now i believe they bought it purposely for the purpose of taking out the remote and manual and then returning the pc for a refund. Got on here and saw your post, because we too could not find a remote that would work on this tv/vcr combo. - RIDICULOUS!!!

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.

AKAI 20" TV w/ DVD Player Model # CFTD2052

Your problem could be a backlight problem. But the bulbs may not be the source of your problem, as both and sometimes 3 or 4 bulbs, depending on the set will not all go out at once. You most likely have an inverter problem with your set, that is the circuit that powers the backlights. Good Luck
