PT5499HD Covergence Akai

I bought the TV needing repair. I just replaced the sdks on the tv as one was out. The tv seems ok now accept for the convergence. Here where the problem comes in. I used the mute 1 8 3 to enter the convergence mode. All the colors will adjust satisfactorily with the remote, however it looks like the convergence picture is too large. The convergence cursor for the grids will move off the screen for the outermost grid points on all sides. The picture size just seems large. I have no cable or antenna connected to it at the moment. When I use the normal operational user menu, part of it is hanging off the left side of the screen. I have perfromed manual convergences on other tv's with no problem. On this tv I can align the colors and all adjustments work fine,the picture just seems large. Even when I select the factory settings on the remote during convergence the grid is very similar in size and adjustment. Any suggestions? Thanks

    This is an Akai. Thanks

    I also entered the service menu. mute 182 power. That menu also hangs off the left side of the screen. Also when going into one selection, the items extend off of the top and the bottom of the screen. Thanks

    I found the v amp setting and reduced it. That reduced things enough so that I can now see the mute 182 menu top to bottom. The is no h amp or h size setting just an "h ew" . That has limited effect. I did some convergence and brought the horizontal area in where it all seems to appear on the screen. Then I found the 4:3 and wide seting. I have since reset the convergence to factory defaults and I am starting over with the convergence. The h position seems to have no effect. I was wondering if there was a problem, but I do have full control of the convergence. I have made some progress. What is the "h ew"?

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?

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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png

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.
