Akai dlp tv does not have any power going to it, I just changed the bulb. What else could it be?


If you plug it in and no lights come on at all then it is your power supply board. If it has lights on it could be your main board that needs to be replaced. Just search online repair shops and give one a call they should be able to get you a new board for cheap and replacement is super easy.

The tv vision is red, green, yellow, orange, very very blurry, and it is not possible to watch the television. How could I fix it?


Please do us a favor and rate this solution after reading.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

My tv has a lot of red color in the picture


Tt might be the problem with he color circuit board, bring it to the repair shop for repair, or if you can do it do re-soldering to any visual crack at the soldered lead terminal of the components on the circuit board and then try put on to check if the problem goes away?

"NO Picture" 54" AKAI model PT5492S


I just had that problem. Check the terminal board that is on the left if you open the back of the TV. There is a thing in there with the number aa93-something. If you check under that board there should be some solders that have come loose. I just fixed this problem last night!!

This could be one of many different issues. Main flaw with these units are as follows:

Blue picture tube leaks coolant onto neck board and mainboard causing problems.

AKAI PT5598HDI No picture


Dave,
Without a doubt it's worth the repair. The convergence amps have most likely failed and taken with them the +/- 30v line. Your unit takes two STK392-040 Sanyo built Ics at board location Icz103 and Icz104 and usually one or more pico fuses and some low ohm resistors. F1018 sometimes opens due to stress but generally it's just the two 6.3 amp pico fuses and if they have opened I strongly recommend replacing them with a 6.3 amp slo-blo pico.
The low ohm resistors at RZ147, RZ146 usually show signs of heat stress and may even be burned beyond recognition. Testing at that point is almost unnecessary but will confirm their change in value. Almost always they need to be replaced.
A quality shop will have this unit back on its feet in no time - faster if they have the parts in-stock, which you might ask about when you shop around for a good repair facility.
Have a great day!
Bill

42'' projection tv timer led light blinks


Mine does the same freaking thing, and Akai Has zero customer support. The manual is utterly useless. I would be happy with 50 fewer features and a reliable TV. Why throw all that stuff in if it means more things can go wrong? I will never buy Akai. I am going to take it to a TV repair shop and see how ridiculous the cost is to fix it.
