Question about Akai PTH5498 54" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The picture is concave on the top and the bottoma dn the picture seems slightly fuzzy. Is this a convergence problem. Can a prt be ordered to fix it. Can I fix this myself easily if I order a part?
I just picked up the same tv for free, and have the same problem.
but mine also has shadows of blue and red everywhere. but yes, it is in fact a convergence problem.
you can buy the part to repair it yourself, but its not as easy as just plugging it in. you have to solder it, plus a resistor(if that blew too), and a fuse(again, if that blew as well).
tvrepairkits.com claims they can make a kit for any tv, i sent them an email to see if they can make one for the akai.
here is the part number for the convergence ic's STK392-040 if youd like to find them on your own.
