SOURCE: 51' projection tv(Hitachi 51G500A)

The Hitachi part number for the screen assembly for the 51G500a is KR02844. You can call a Hitachi parts distributor and see for yourself how much those things cost, but I warn you they are not cheap!

SOURCE: Screen powers up then goes blank after 2 seconds

Hi, was there a resolution to this? I am experiencing the same problem with LCT3285TA purchased at Radio Shack in Media, PA. Radio Shack has refused to service the unit and has put me over to Akai for the manufacturer's warranty. I'd like to know what to expect and if this problem with the Logo coming up and the unit shutting off/restarting can be easily fixed, thanks.

SOURCE: Black line running horizontally across TV screen

A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.

Akai PT5499hd that has suddenly lost color alignment

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

No power up red light

The symptom you have should be addressed by a qualified -technician. However, the most common cause is either a convergence problem or fluid leaking onto the picture tube socket or the chassis. To check for a convergence problem remove the back of the TV. Typically on Akai the convergence board may be mounted above the chassis. Look for any big aluminum heat sink with a pair of large IC`s (STK-392-040) screwed to it. Mark and unplug the power connector to the board (the red molex connector). Plug the TV in and turn on the set. If the set comes on replace the convergence IC`s and check all the 3.9 ohm (orange,white, and gold stripes) resistors on the board. To check for a fluid leak remove the lower front panel of the set and look for any moisture on or around all three picture tube sockets and the main chassis. If there is moisture, it is necessary to repair or replace the seal, wash the board or chassis and repair any damage from corrosion.

Akai pt5499hd just shut down

If you are electrically inclined, there is a power deflector board that may need to be replaced. This deals with the high voltage part of the TV, so I am not responsible. The part number we had to but and replace was BP94-01289A or about $130.

PT5499HD Covergence Akai

Yes, you have a size problem you have horizontal and vertical size. Either its' in the service mode or somewhere on the set, with this set it's probably in menu. Must be set too high. I will look for menu codes! Is this an Akai or Panasonic set?
