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.

Okay, so my Panasonic PT-43LC14 went black in mid show last night. The bulb is approximately 18 months old. The LED indicators upon Power On are; Power LED blinks green for approximately 70 seconds; Then...


Check the bulb again and look at the root of where the main stem comes out inside and be sure you don't see any bubble like appearence around the stem at the bottom there. If you do see this then the bulb is bad. Otherwise try this: Hold volume down on front of unit and pip on remote for about 5 seconds. Message will come on screen that timer has been reset to zero. This sets the lamp timer to 0

I need to change the bulb in my WD65731 dlp tv. I have taken the cartridge out. How do I get to the bulb. I repleced my lamp and still have no picture. Am still getting a "blinking" lamp light on front...


The blinking lamp light refers to the lamp door not being closed. There is a little lever behind the main panel and if that's not shut, the lever won't be pressed in and therefore the light blinks. If it's a failed lamp, the lamp indicator light will be a solid, not blinking.
