HELLO. JUST GOT MY TV TODAY...HOOKED S-CABLE AND OTHER CONNECTIONS UP TO MY DVD PLAYER. I HAVE PIC AND AUDIO BUT I GET A BUNCH OF SLANTED LINES ALL OVER THE PICTURE. WHEN I TRY TO HIT THE MENU BUTTON THE WORDS THAT COME UP ARE ALL GARBLED AND HARD TO READ...BUT IF I CROSS MY EYES AND TURN MY HEAD JUST RIGHT I CAN USUALLY MAKE OUT SOME OF THE WORDS..... MY HUBBY IS AT WORK SO HE IS NO HELP!! CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY HELP????
I finally got an answer from Akai customer service center. Because the TV is only 6 months old and I have proof of purchase, it will be repaired from a local Akai repair shop all under warranty. They told me it was a faulty modular chip that has happened to several of these models and had to be repaired in the shop due to some internal soldering needing to be done. I am waiting for the repair center to call me and will let you all know when the repair is completed.
I mis placed the 1-800 number but you can email them at [email protected]. They are located in Cleveland. Ohio.

Connect yellow video output on DVD player to yellow video input on TV using RCA cable. Connect white audio output on DVD player to white audio input on TV next to yellow. Connect red audio output on DVD (next to white) to red audio input on TV using RCA cable. Select on the TV using remote, the proper input for DVD player connection.
audio cables need to be hooked up as well not just a video cable. usually red and white and clearly colored on the output side of the dvd player and the tv. input is on the tv output is on the dvd, also if you are using a fiber connection (optical sound) you will need a fiber cable from the dvd to the tv.
Tries use a RCA cable plug 2 connections ports holes red,white audio out input connected ur DVD player,connnect the other side the RCA to TV audio in input.Use a S-Video cable for video connection to get video.If u have the new version of a DVD player just use a HDMI cable plug one end to the DVD player the other to the TV.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
Purchased a newer HDMI DVD player,(Sony)as well as found that I do need the video cables.Also found that I need to change the input to component on the DVD player by using a regular coxial to at least get a display from the DVD player had I kept the older one.
I have determined that mine had a problem with the composite input board. I was able to unhook the connections to this board inside the TV, after Akai, and the local repair guys couldn't figure it out....
The problem hasn't come back in a while, and since my setup is all HDMI/Component ins, I didn't affect me at all.
It looked like there was slight heat damage to the board, but not enough that it was caused by a design flaw, more like a manufacturing "accident".
