Question about Akai PT46DL10 46" HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Can't reach AKAI about replacing lamp cartridge.

My AKAI Rear Projection front panel indicator indicates that I need to replace the lamp cartridge. The picture appears fine but it says the lamp operation exceeds its rated lifetime.
The manual says it should only be replaced by a qualified technical service and to contact AKAI. The phone number in the book is not a working number but I found another number and I cannot get a response by either phone or e-mail. They answer this new phone number but I am cut off each time before I can reach an operator. Is there someone else besides AKAI that can replace this cartridge for me?
My TV is a Rear Projection Model AKAI PT 46DL10.
Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
P. Leonard

The bulb is not the original bulb. you need to purchase a 9 pin RS-232 connector cable and reset the lamp life counter on the bios of the tv if the picture is still fine on the TV. (make sure the cable has a male end and a female end and attach it to your computer and the data port on the back of your tv beside the pc input, there should be a male end on your computer that looks like a monitor input but backwards)
Then I downloaded the service manual from www.nodevice.com (under service manual, click on akai and then scroll to the bottom of the page where the model number of the TV appears; there in the manual they have all the codes to reset your tv, adjust all settings, do a diagnostic of your tv to find problems etc.

The cable only costs 5-10 dollars at most computer stores in your city

Hope this helps

    for this model I recommend www.nextdaydlp.com make sure your serial number on the back ends in J or Z (it makes a difference when getting a new lamp, and a couple bucks difference aswell) the serial number is on the back of the tv in the middle.

Test the lamp


Lamps can't be tested. All you can do is replace it or try your old lamp in the exact same TV model. in most cases though your TV will have a lamp indicator light on the front panel that will come on when the lamp needs replacing.

Panasonic TV pt-50lc13 bulb replacement


Take the bulb out, there should be a access panel in the front, power the set on,(be sure to have the lamp door closed) if you hear a rapid ticking noise from the set, the Ballast is trying to fire the lamp, this is a good indication that the set is functional but the lamp needs to be replaced. If not, the ballast is not getting the voltage needed to start the lamp.
