Akai PT5598 rear projector TV

My tv, which has always worked great, suddenly lost its picture (as if the tv had been turned off). We have sound, can change channels with the remote, but simply don't have a picture. Any suggestions on what may be the problem?

    MY AKAI PT5598HD 55 IN REAR PROJECTION HDTV READY HAS NO PICTURE. HAS SOUND.THE LITTLE RED LIGHT ON THE POWER BUTTON FLASHES A FEW TIMES AND GO OFF

    Same problem--At just over two years old, my Akai PT5598HDIX suddenly lost the picture, but the sound is still functional. Customer service stepped me through the reset procedure (unplug for ten minutes then try it again). That didn't work so she told me to connect a DVD play to see if the television could display that image. No such luck. Next move was to try to order the service manual, but the web page warned that it wouldn't ship right away. I canceled the order pending a reply from customer service on how long they think it will take.

    My PT5598HDIX picture went out. A couple of wavy thin lines appeared for about 2 seconds and then lost the picture. I get the normal sound when I change channels still, but get no picture either through cable or antena. I unpluged it for overnight but that did nothing. I tried the menu and even the picture perfect but recieve no visual at all. I would like to repair it myself if I knew what it was. I feel it might be expensive to fix. Any help would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks,

Thanks for the response, Willtab. There are no unusual noises at all. I spoke with someone else with the same problem, and he determined that he had a bad zener diode on the power supply board which also took out a electrolytic capacitor in parallel with it, but replacing it didn't help and the new zener soon went bad. I checked the same components on my unit and no voltage on the 5.1V zerer. I'm guessing that if someone finds the root of this problem we will all be able to get our sets working again. It sure would be nice if Samsung would help.

Akai rear projection tv suddenly stopped working.


This set with Akai is actually made by Samsung (they own and use the Akai name).

If lamp light etc and you have heard a cracking sound it may be the color wheel.

You can remove the lamp and look where it faces--look and the wheel can be seen----is it shattered or missing plastic pieces?

The wheel commonly fails in this fashion and is turning at over 12,000 rpm. The set will detect if the wheel is stopped or moving too slow and just what you describe will happen.

Wheel is widely available and You Tube has video instructions for replacing them by model number.

AKAI Rear Projection 46"TV has a blank picture with sound only


Hello,


Is it a CRT or a DLP/LCD projector? If not a CRT, a worn-out projection lamp can cause this symptom. When it is a DLP projector, a faulty Colour Wheel sensor can be the additional problem. If it is a CRT projection unit the High Voltage and deflection circuit must be examined...

Please tell me more about your unit...

HD image has lost sharpness


You will need to replace the convergance IC's if the colors are no longer lined up and they won't line up using the tv's controls. Also, if the crt lenses have a lot of dust on them removing that will help the sharpness and brightness of the picture. Don't use canned air. Get a crt lens cloth.
