    common to all rear projection TV's, the repair is as I described .

    Has nothing to do with contaminated coolant..............T.

You need to turn down the voltage on all 3 crt's. You have a red one, a blue one and a green one. Slowly adjust the knob down until you don't see the shadow any more. Then adjust your color in the user menu.

Akai PT5598HDI Rear Screen Projection TV With Blue Shadowing


If the ghosting is like a 3D effect its your convergence ICs , but if its like a blue Halo around objects that usually means your CRT coolant has congealed and will need replacement. The blue is the first tube to congeal for some reason, followed by green. Red seems to be not quite as prone to this. It is a normal occurrence n sets about 4 years old to need the coolant changed.

Picture has shadows with different colors (red, yellow, green)


Sounds like the convergence needs adjustment. You can do this through the menu-follow the on screen instructions. The idea is to line up the red, green, & blue.

I have the akai model # ptf492s and the white colors are yellow


I'm almost positive the problem is you have fungus in the CRTs. I know this sounds strange, but it's true. Basically there is coolant fluid in the lamps that develops fungus over time and turns yellow. It should be clear. If you take the back off the television, you will see the 3 lenses (red, green, blue) Each of the lens is held on with 3 screws. Remove the adjustable lens and look at each CRT. Shine a flashlight in they should look white. From what I've read, blue develops the problem first, then green. You can replace the fluid. Look up TV coolant replacement online. It's not to difficult, but you cannot get any of the fluid on the circuit boards or it will ruin it. Mine had a lot of fungus in the blue CRT and a little in the green. The picture looks 100% better now. Good Luck.

Your green gun in our tv is misagligned/out of focus. Your tv uses red, green and blue guns that layer in different shades and mix to create the different colors. Your green is a little off so the colors aren't mixing right which explains the green haze and the shadows. A tv repair man can fix this problem pretty easily and it isnt expenisve.

White colors schemes seem off white color or brownish color and blue has green tint or baby blue color. .


Check the coolant in all three crt's as chances are it is contaminated (should be crystal clear). If brown (beer color), replace coolant in all three crt's and perform convergence adjust. Picture should be like new!!!

Good Luck!!!

Akai rear projection has 3 colors blue green yellow.


Problem is not adjustable = convergence mis-alignment is caused by failure of STK392-040 IC's. Replace both with name
brand only = no generics.I use Panasonic with excellent results.
