Akai pt 5598

I turned my akai pt 5598 off last night and this morning it would not turn on. The led power lamp only lights when I turn on the tv with the remote in the vcr setting. Either case there is no blue screen and I can't pull up the menu. I am not technically adept but I can effect a repair if it is unplug and replace. Thank you for any assistance.

    This particular unit does not have a single projector lamp. It has three independent tubes red yellow and green. Now the led lamp does not light when you turn power on.

  • eneg Oct 05, 2007

    I don't know that. The unit does not power up. There is absolutly no indication of power anywhere. The led power indicator does not even light.

    sounds like a job for a qualified tech

    The problem is who can you trust to give you the honest solution and the right price. The mainboard of this unit is over $400.00 dollars not including the labor

Ok so your problem is power right? check the power section in un reguated power supply, and the secondary power in hot side! os maybe you have abnormal power oscillations in oscillation circuit.

So the screen shows nothing, you just see an LED? It's likely just a burnt out bulb in the projector lamp. These should be easy to check and replace, it's really no different than changing a lightbulb in a lamp.

    So the yellow and green do light? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but it sounds like it's just the red tube that needs replaced then.

    I'm not sure we can help you with that question. One of the disadvantages of the internet - nobody's local.

Tv won't turn on

I had a similar problem when there was a power outage or the lights went briefly out. I unplugged the TV and left it for a few days/weeks and then plugged it in and the TV worked. I think newer TVs should be treated like a home computer and put them on surge protectors.

The Solution posted by "Guest" on March 18 2008 worked exactly as he said it would. The part was delayed a week or so due to back order, but it arrived yesterday and, once installed, fixed the problem for under $100. THANKS "GUEST"!!!

Turning on problem with Panasonic Viva PT-43LC14

Sounds as you have a bad ballest. The ballest is the power supply that turns your lamp on. You can check your lamp by removing it and it should be clear and no broken pieces of glass. With the lamp removed install the cover and turn it on you should hear no noise and when the power light turns red you should see a LAMP red led blink every 5 seconds. If no noise then the lamp is bad. If you do hear noise you have a bad ballist. Hope this helps. Frank
