Question about Akai PT5492S 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My picture went out on my Akai PT5492S, which had a burning smell. I opened the back and saw no burnt componets, but the timer light flashes when I turn the set on. Is the flashing timer light a error code?

Chances are real good that coolant fluid has leaked onto the Main bd or the Power Supply/Deflection bd or both shorting them out. The coolant can leak from one to all three CRT's.

I have no pic or sound except a chirping noise , sounds like a cricket , LOL , timer light stays red , there was a odor , like a burnt smell


Hello. The chirping probably indicates a shorted transistor or diode, and the burnt smell usually indicates a blown capacitor or a burnt resistor, or multiple damaged parts. I would have to see the TV to be of any further assistance. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Good luck.

There is a burnt capacitor somewhere in the unit. Look for any burnt or swelled up capacitors. You can also usually locate a bad cap if there is burn marks on the system board. Also test power supply with voltmmeter to make sure it is a constant volt reading.

"NO Picture" 54" AKAI model PT5492S


I just had that problem. Check the terminal board that is on the left if you open the back of the TV. There is a thing in there with the number aa93-something. If you check under that board there should be some solders that have come loose. I just fixed this problem last night!!
