Question about Akai PT5598HD 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I turned off the tv last night and this morning only the Red LED came on. I have done nothing to trouble shoot the problem. I saw a similar problem posted so I think that you may have the solution.
Found this part at tiger direct for $75.95 worked perfectly!

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"!!!

I second the post from Guest on march 18, 2008. I ran into this page and this was the exact problem i had. I thought, i should try this given the other solution, meaning calling in a professinal for 300 dollars. Anyways, the part Guest said to order worked perfectly. I installed it myself and it was easy. Took about 2 minutes. The works great now. And that website is really reliable. If the part you order ends up not working, you can return it for a full refund. Good job Guest, you just saved me about 300 dollars on repairs!!

I had the same problem with the same model i bought at an auction and it ended up being the convergence board it is the board that looking from the back of the tv its on the right and mounted with one screw and has two stk 040 black modules on it to see if this board is the problem unplug tv take lwr back off and unplug the red connector which is the pwr connector to the board it is located clear on the left side facing the back of the tv carefully plug your tv back in and try to turn it on if it comes on this is your problem ps never mess around anywhere inside your tv with it plugged in always unplug first. good luck if this is your problem you can get the part at partstore.com part#bp95-00142p for about $75.00 dollars
