Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My TV doesn't show the image/picture

I believe somebody just had the same problem. For some reason my TV suddenly stopped showing picture. When I switch on the TV, small red light blinks for few secs and then stops thats all. I went to Circuit City and asked what could cause the problem and one of the salesman told me the projection bulb must have been burnt. Can somebody help me in resolving this. I would like to find out how much would be the cost to fix it or if it is fixable at all. (Akai PT 4298HD, usage 2.5 years ; bought in Circuit City)

If you are convinced you did not switch the camera to manual settings, and the blur stays, please contact the nearest Canon certified service centre close to you. But before check the settings on the camera and start putting it on automatic.

Picture size


This is the same problem I have (the picture being cut off on the edges). On your computer, you need to change to a native display.

For instance, 1920x1080 usually cuts an inch off of all sides, but it's meant more for videos where a little cropping isn't a big deal; not general screen use.

I believe the reason this happens is because with those other resolutions, 1920x1080 for instance, they are not your laptop's "native resolution", so in order to avoid scaling and stretching the image (which would degrade quality) they show its exact size, point by point, which is bigger than the number of pixels on your TV display.

Some TVs, like mine, have a TV option called "100% scale" that forces the picture to exactly fit to the screen. But this causes stretching and distortion if the aspect ratio of your resolution and the TV's whole screen are different.

Try something like 1366x768 or 1360x768 (some have both, some have only one of those). You should be able to find one or two resolutions like this that show the entire screen with full sharp clarity. It may even look better than 1920x1080 depending on your computer; find the best one that shows sharpness.

Hello,

I believe the thermal fuse is blown. That by far is the leading cause of a dryer not running,this tip i wrote will show ya how to check the thermal fuse.

only difference from what i wrote in that tip is that the apperence of the thermal fuse on your brand is slighly different and may look like this on in this picture below as opposed to the one shown in the tip.

Screen is Blank..Nothing shows up


Hey mneeth,
I would first try formatting the memory card, but remember when you do this it will erase all the images on your memory card so upload your images to your computer first. If this doesn't work I would try resetting the camera to its factory settings which can be done from the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
