I just repaired a Hitchi with the same problem ( I had to do a full adjust on the convergence board via a remote control) I finally came up with a set of instructions to do the full converg. I don't know if these instructions would be helpful for you or somewhat match your set, but send me your fax number and I'll fax the instruction sheet to you ( as I received them).

I have a 55" Akai HD problem, double images.


the reason this is because the convergence needs set these tvs should be serviced ever 3 years or so this is definitely the problem i fix these all the time a good tv repair man will do it for under 120 pounds and its worth it your tv isn't broken don't worry the convergence settings are adjusted by dials in the back of the tv inside the case its not for a user to do it will just become worse id advise to have it done and it will be like new again and the person will provide a warranty and a good tip is maybe 2 years after give it a shake and hell have to fix it on warranty covering you for another 3 years of viewing if you don't believe me do a search and ull find out please make sure and make the payment for my help thanks and good luck any more questions don't hesitate in contacting me

HOW DO I RESET CONVERGENCE ON A AKIA PT5299HD


it will show you in your owners manual or in the menu portion on your TV. Remember you only have about 15% ability to do this and the tech has the rest in his ability to adjust.

Need convergence instructions foe akai pt5299hd


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

I had the same problem this week. I tried the convergence thing but it was impossible to fix. I still needed the repairman. He changed two convergence units ($325, parts and labor). Then the tv was still doing the same thing. We had to adjust the convergence and now everything is perfect. You will need your converter

CONVERGENCE


Solution for your tv problem
http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html

One last check and a quick dusting of the lenses and mirrors, then I powered it up for a "smoke test". It worked! I screwed the back on and reconnected all of my video sources and moved it back in place. I only had to do a minor on screen convergence adjustment and then it looked perfect again.

It took me about an hour and a half. The parts cost $5.99 each, expedited shipping was around $16. New soldering iron and bulb cost me about $25 and the heat sink compound was $5. So the repair cost me less than $60 (and would have been less without tools). Compared to a repair estimate of $500, I saved over $440!
