Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

Open Question

AKAI PT5492 no power - only timer comes on

My AKAI PT5492 rear projection TV has been working fine since 2001 and yesterday, without warning, it would not turn on. The timer light did go on and will now not go off. In addition, there is a clicking sound every few seconds. I unplugged the unit until I can determine what to do. Thanks- -Fred

SOURCE: Akai PT50DL24 50 in DLP Rear Projection TV-NO PIC OR SOUND

check for popped or raised tops on caps in power supply. also try unplugging set for 5 minutes and resetting it. How about does your color wheel spin up? if your color wheel don't startup then your tv will also shut down. also check all fans they all should be running at turn on. if all fails i would say its your light engine.

I have a 56'' AKAI PT5492 projection screen i turn it on and have green bowed lines on top of screen


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com to get a repair kit with instructions.

Won't turn on


If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).
