Akai (PTH5498) 54" rear projection TV with red and green ghosting and large curve in the picture at the top and bottom of the screen. Unable to fix using manual convergence. Thinking it must be the...


Yes is is your convergence IC's. One has gone bad, but consider replacing both of them because if one has gone bad then the other is not far behind. They are located on the middle board of your set. They are mounted on a large heatsink, the part # should be STK-392-040. Replace these and your set will work fine again.

Red and blue ghosting,

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

I have what I believe is a convergence problem. The red line curves down at the sides on the adjustment screen and when I am viewing TV the picture has a red ghost curving up at the sides of the picture....

Hi, this is a convergence chip failure and it can only be corrected by replacing the entire convergence board in this unit. This Board regulates and collaborates the RGB streams. if there is an apparent malfunction, it will become impossible to correct the issues you are experiencing at this time.

Simply replacing the convergence board or chip set will fix this issue.

Green convergance wont adjust, bowed screen

Green really shouldn't be adjusted, you adjust red and blue to the green. When a color is bowed that indicates that a part or two are bad, probably the convergence output IC's and possibly a fuse or fusible resister. You may need a tech to come adjust it for you because after replacing IC's the adjustments should be done in the servicers menus not just in the consumers menus.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.
