Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have an AKAI TV...Model Code #PT4250AX/SMS - Rear Projection TV. The TV was being used and a pop sound was heard and then the tv was black (no audio, no video). Now when you turn on the power the red light goes on and blinks off and on, you also hear a high pitched whistle or humming.

My recommendation is to call a local svc co. Since you heard a pop, it could be anywhere in the set. It requires trouble shooting to isolate where the problem is. I hope this is help-full for you.

I heard a pop and screen wet black. red lamp


Lamp inside TV is broken and requires replacement. Pop sound was its breaking sound.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, pretty easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp.
Let me know if you need to download user manual copy.
Thanks.

One of your capacitors n the video board burnt out. You will have to use a multi-tester or capacitor tester with service manual to determine which capacitor it was that burnt out.

I was playing a game (PS3) and I heard a slight "pop" from the tv


User can't really fix this at all. Even a regular TV shop would have problem replacing individual components. What you can try to do is maybe order the board that has the burnt components, and raplace it yourself.

This is a convergence problem that can be as simple as poor solder connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you wish to attemp the repair yourself, please let me know and I'll look up the parts and provide additional details and instructions.
