Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red and green projection is separated

My Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection TV has been working fine for the past few years without a problem. Last night when I turned it on, it looks like the red and green projection is separated (blue is fine).

Also, the whole screen looks kind of warped. The top and bottom kind of push towards each other looking like it's trying to make the viewable area of the screen into a bowtie.

I tried "picture perfect". It blinks for something like a minute, stuck at 4%, and eventually gave up and nothing got changed.

I selected "convergence" and then selected "red". Out of the 15 pairs of red and green crosses I saw on the screen, only the center row left most ones almost coincided. I pressed 4 on the remote to select it. But then when I press the "menu" button on the remote, nothing got changed.

Is it fixable?

    Yes. Thanks for the information. I hope this is the problem! I guess I have to find a repairperson to open up the TV.

Hi,

It still can be fix, the unit need an immediate repair, a problem on the video output module has something to do with this, a burnt resistor or capacitor has to be replaced.

Hope this info helps

Tv picture shaped like hour glass


The link you posted has been deleted, so I cannot see the picture you posted. If the sides bow in like an hourglass and the red, green and blue colors are still aligned then there is a horizontal width or pincussion problem, but if the sides bow in and the 3 colors have separated and are no longer anywhere near aligned then you have a convergence problem, both of which should be serviced by someone with experience in servicing projection TV's.
