My 52 inch akai i bought used at a lawn sale now when i turned it on and went to menu to adjust the color i seen that it is eather red or green you cant adjust it to make people and things look normal...

If it is simply a matter of the colors not lining up it may just need the convergence adjusted, but if one color is missing altogether (sounds like maybe blue is gone) one of the CRTs might be faulty. If this is the case then it will be more expensive to fix than it is worth. Even though Akai made high quality audio products in the 70s and continues to make quality recording anf musical equipment the fact is that their TVs are very low quality I am afraid.

Where can i get a convergence chip for PT4799HD akai tv?

I'm fairly certain that particular Akai model contains Samsung parts. You can contact Samsung at 1-800-726-7864 to check pricing and availability of the part you seek.
