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.

Sounds like a problem in the vertical sweep circuit. Check voltages to your convergence ICs. If they are  not to spec then look for bad fuses and capacitors on the power board. These will throw off the DC voltage to the convergence chips causing the bow effect. I've had a single bad pico fuse ($1) cause this symptom.

Picture is concave on top and bottom. With ed and green ghosts.Worked fine, turn set off and on about 15 minutes later and picture was as described. Help!


The convergence chips in your tv have gone out. They control the three picture tubes and align them so that they create one picture on your screen. I recomend having a qualified technican replace them and realign you convergence. Thanks.
