Do not panic! Do not throw your TV away like I wanted to! Here is what may be the solution for most of the members who have posted their complaints here recently. I am not an expert, but I followed all blogs from various websites and forums, and the conclusion was the same;replace the convergence board for this model. I purchased it from www.partstore.com and since this Akai is the same model as a comparable Samsung Model, buy the Samsung comparable Convergence board for $77. It came to about $85 after shipping. Call them if you need the exact model #. The Convergence board has two black STK ICs and two colors of wires, a gray kind and a blue kind,all which have 'pins' and can easily be unplugged from the circuit board in the TV. It is basically a complete system that takes less than30 minutes to install. It is a simple swap procedure, with no soldering.You only need the new board and a screwdriver! Remove the lower backboard of your TV where the cables are plugged in (do not unscrew all the screws for the screen, as it is unnecessary, and might just damage your screen if you are not careful.) It has a u-like shape and comes off easy. Detach the gray wires connecting your old board to the rest of the circuitry, and detach the blue wires connecting the old board to the circuitry. On the old board, there are connectors marked,from left, blue, green and red. Detach those from the old board, and mark the wires so that you may connect the correct the wires to the new board. You then unscrew the only screw connecting the board to the TV,and unhook the board from the TV. Hook the new board to the hooks which held the old board, and screw the lone screw to the board. Plug the gray cables from the new board to the connectors where the gray cables from the old board were,and do so for the blue cables. Connect the multicolored cables to the blue, green and red, just as was done on the old board. Reattach the cover and test the TV. Please do not replace the two STK ICs only. When I removed my old board, I realized that there was a burn mark, where the ICs were, but maybe it was a fuse.You may replace the ICs only to discover that it was another problem.Good luck, and I wish you all the best in the repairs. I just saved about$100 for a repairman just to show up.

TV won't screen won't come on. You can hear it


Are you getting a soild red light and a blinking green, or both green and red blinking, that indicates your blub is toast. Time for a new lamp, I'm in the process of doing just that as mine bit the dust this morning. Up here in the great white North the blub costs $220.00. I your lucky and your down South you will pay about half that.

I've had this set since 05 and I am on my second lamp Toshiba paid for the first one not it's my turn, great set otherwise.

Check your manual to see how to reset the lamp timer. When it reaches the limit it will not turn on till it's reset. With most units it is a combonation of button pushes.
