Question about Akai PT46DL10 46" HDTV-Ready Television
the bulb is not the original bulb. you need to purchase a 9 pin RS-232 connector cable and reset the lamp life counter on the bios of the tv if the picture is still fine on the TV. (make sure the cable has a male end and a female end and attach it to your computer and the data port on the back of your tv beside the pc input, there should be a male end on your computer that looks like a monitor input but backwards)
Then I downloaded the service manual from www.nodevice.com (under service manual, click on akai and then scroll to the bottom of the page where the model number of the TV appears; there in the manual they have all the codes to reset your tv, adjust all settings, do a diagnostic of your tv to find problems etc.
The cable only costs 5-10 dollars at most computer stores in your city
Hope this helps
