Question about Akai PTH5498 54" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
This model TV has several know areas that will cause this problem. The hyper board and the line processor. The line processor is likely the main problem since the wave lines change when the screen is changed. Akai also has problems with the capacitors. Pay attention to the caps in the areas mentioned above and in the power supply. Heat is the number one enemy of electronics and these sets operate hot. This model of TV has over 3,000 parts which includes millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. Over time the capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. This will cause other components to become defective. This can have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again since if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. For a proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment and the skills to use the test equipment.
