Picture is to big for the screen


This is a picture format setting. Some remotes has a button labled format. Press the button to change format options. Or select menu and go to picture settings and find picture format, and scroll through options to find a setting to your liking. Depending on you service provider (dishnetwork, directv, or cable) you may need to change the picture format setting on that device as well. Contact your service provider if your not sure how to access these settings on the service providers box (device).

PICTURE TO BIG AT THE SCREEN.CAN NOT SEE THE PICTERS MARGIN AT THE SCREEN.HOW TO ADJUST(REDUCING PICTURE SIZE ON SCREEN)?


1) Power your wide-screen TV on and turn to a channel that is displayed with bars on the side. You need to leave this channel on to ensure you have properly adjusted your wide-screen TV.

2)
Find in your TVs settings where you can "stretch" the picture. Refer to your wide-screen TVs owner's manual for specific instructions. Some TVs may not refer to this adjustment as "stretch." You will be able to find all the information your looking for in the owners manual.

3) Adjust settings back to normal if you want to watch a program shown in 16:9 format. Keeping the screen "stretched" will cause programs shown in 16:9 format appear zoomed in, making the picture look really different.

My akai tv is set on full screen


You should have a button on the remote that came with the TV labeled: format , ratio , wide , picture , somthing like that, different brands of TVs call it different things and I am not familiar with the Akai branded TVs, but when you find it just press it as many times as needed to make the picture look as you want it to.
Good luck !

Akai PT5499hd that has suddenly lost color alignment


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

The picture is bigger than the screen... Picture is cut off and when I unscrewed the back of the tv I could see that the picture was showing perfect but it was to big for the screen... There's not a way to...


Have you tried hitting the format picture button on your remote control. Seems the picture is in zoom mode. If you have a cable box for HD Channels then look on the remote for a button (format) or Screen size.

Subtitles disappear below bottom of screen


Check to see, what format the television set that widescreen etc. this may be all that's wrong with your set. If the problem persists the vertical height needs to be adjusted.  Most likely through the service menu, if units under warranty you can call Akai.  For further structures.

Picture off center


If you were in the technician menu then look for the HCENTER adjustment (horizontal centering) then move accordingly.
