Question about Akai PT5598HD 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Picture moved up and to the right

I have had my Akai PT5598HD 55 in for over 4 years now and I love it. Just recently though I input for the DVD and when I swithed back the picture was moved over the right and up a little. What I can see of the picture is crystal clear as it always has been. I have tried the convergence thing but that seems to only apply to color. Does anyone have any suggestion or ideas of what to do here? Thanks

I know this is an old post, but it was never replied to and I just joined the site. Does the image only show the shift when on the DVD input? It is possible that the DVD player is the one shifting the image and not the TV. Try another device on that input and see if it goes away. Kenneth

Akai PT5598HD 55 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television tv looks like it is now 3d model with red out by about a half inch. will not adjust on converage settings

sounds like your convergence board has failed ...there may be a kit at you can search your model number for a convergence repair will need to have someone with electronics repair experience install the parts if you do not know how yourself...these kits range from 40.00 to 100.00 and usually come with a cd or dvd to aide in installing these components.

I just got this tv free and it will stay on for 15-30 minutes and then turn off. Some times it will stay on all day, though, so its kind of weird. I have the 5499HD
