Panel on the back of tv, opposite side of inputs. 6 screws takes a special screwdriver. I used needle nose plyers. once in the back, unscrew 2 stainless steel screws to take out black housing. www.nextdaydlp.com has your bulb. make sure you have the serial number off the back of your TV at the end of your serial number you will find either a Z or J. DONT GET THE WRONG BULB! taking the bulb out of the housing is different. you can either take a drill with a small bit to get the nuts out, or purchase the screwdriver called a T-8 TROX screwdriver.

Hi I have TV AKAI start projecting a red


rear projection tv can be crt or dlp, if crt, try to adjust red color using the customer convergence feature, you will find it in the customer menu usually under advance feature or video settings, some tvs will just give the convergence caption right on the menu listing. If this does not help then the tv might be in need of some convergence circuit repair, probably one of the power outs is damages and needs to be replaced. If it is a dlp if the red shade extends all over the screen or located in a certain area of the screen then i would have the tech check for light engine trouble, this is a common problem on some dlp systems.if i answered your question satisfactorily please leave your positive feed back. thanks

Good sound no picture


I have the same TV. On the back of the TV there is a square panel. Unscrew the six screws (the panel is on the opposite side of the inputs, I used needle nose plyers) after you take the panel off (make sure the tv is unplugged) you will see a black "housing" with two stainless steel screws. Unsrew those two screws and pull out the housing. there will be 4 screws to take off (uses a special tool called a T-8 TROX screwdriver and replace bulb. BE CAREFUL for this TV there is 2 different bulbs. If your serial number ends in a J you need a different bulb then if it ends in a Z (serial number is on the back of the tv in the middle) I recommend shopping www.nextdaydlp.com as they clearly label there bulbs, plus they are cheap!
