Its a DLP that uses a lamp, lamp is possible but I would also look to see if fans are on and running, a fan stopping or even slowing down can trigger the set off also.

Average lamp life is 2000 hours or two years and set if lamp a bit dim may shut set off.

I need a lamp for Akai Model PT50DL24X/sms Lamp Code BP96-01472A (P132W) I need to find this lamp can you help? Akai does not answer e-mails & the phone is blocked ,Thanks

The bp96-01472 tells me the set was made by Samsung---lamp should be easy to find=============GOOGLE that number with the word lamp after it and you will find many places that sell it.

Two ways here, buy a generic "bulb", take the cartridge with the bulb apart etc, these generic lamps cost less but are no bargain as they usually have a shorter life span.

Get a lamp with the cartridge (bulb and housing) and your task will be easy.

Samsung bought the Akai name some years ago, all products with that name are Samsung.

When changing the lamp do not touch the glass face with your hands as any oil will cause the lamp to fail very quickly.

If you have any questions post a comment here and I will reply, the site will email me.

Akai model PT50DL24X/SMS when you turn on the set it makes a popping sound then there is no sound at all. the only way to get it back is to unplug it and let it reset.

the popping sound is generated in the audio output amplifier IC, change out the ic and any associated electrolytic capacitors this should restore normal operation good luck

Akai PT50DL24 50 in DLP Rear Projection TV-NO PIC OR SOUND

check for popped or raised tops on caps in power supply. also try unplugging set for 5 minutes and resetting it. How about does your color wheel spin up? if your color wheel don't startup then your tv will also shut down. also check all fans they all should be running at turn on. if all fails i would say its your light engine.
