Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
No longer have remote and need to change input source using buttons on front. Source button works, used channel button to move down to desired input, but don't know how to "enter".
Normally you HAVE to use the remote. If it is on the television, there is normally a 4 arrow button and there is a button in the centre which is enter.
Remotes are easily sourced and a authentic copies of the original. Google

SOURCE: Volume stuck in 100% flashing
Since this is a digital LCD TV, there is no question of any button being "stuck". It is most likely an issue with the circuitry. You can try a hard reset first, which is the basic step. Unplug everything, including cables and power supply, wait about 1/2 hour and replug everything. Should the hard reset work, well and good. If not, you will have to take the TV in for servicing. I do not recommend a DIY if you have no prior experience, as there are very sensitive parts within.
However, if you would like to try a DIY, you will first need to get your hands on a service manual. I recommend the following site:
They also help you procure the needed parts and provide free diagnostics and help while you repair the set online (provided you buy the manual from them, of course)
Hope that helps! If there is anything further I can assist you with, please let me know. If you are satisfied with my response, kindly take a moment to "ACCEPT" my solution.

SOURCE: hdmi receiver to hd plasma tv
1. You cannot get and HDMI and component on one cable. One is anaglod, and HDMI is digital. Use the component, the difference isnt. They are both HDTV compatible signals. S-Video is terrible, its really no better than the old-fashioned coaxial cable. After you connect the two, be sure you go into the settings on your home theater and set the output to component, progressive scan, and the the resolution your TV supports. The resolution is clearly stated in the user manual and on the box. It is probably 720p or 1080i. (Dont worry, most HD devices will revert back to the settings if they dont work. So if it goes blank or you see undesired picture, just wait up to 15 seconds and it will revert your settings. Once you are successful, the menu will ask you if you can see the picture, use the remote to select yes.)
2. The remote came possibly with an auto scanning feature, but at least has a code entry mode to program
your brand of tv to work with your remote. Look at the list of codes based on category and brand in the documentation for the home theater system. Use all the codes available for your brand unil the tv responds to the code you entered. This is very brief but the manual has very specific instructions on what to press, step by step.
And the last question is absolutely yes, the picture is about 6x better than the regular tv standard which is 480i
480i is an interlaced picture, and its 320x480 dots of color to display your picture, interlacing is basically using one horizontal line to act as 2 by quicly alternating what it draws twice per frame. Thats why standard tv seems to "jiggle" in place
Progressive Scan has a solid image, every time, that automatically doubles your quality. Definitely, you want your resolution to be as high as the tv supports and you will be satisfied.

Are there not enough ports? You can buy port splitters to add more connections to your tv. Also, some surround sound receivers have port switchers too.
