    TV automatically turns off. I turn it back on, and it turns off again. Happens every so often, and sometimes won't turn back on as well.

    My Akai PT5598HDTV is 4 years old. When I try to turn the set on there's no picture or sound, just a blinking red timer light. The timer blinks 9 times. Do you have any suggestions?

Just a thaught, I could be wrong, maybe a problem with the power button on the remote ? It might shut the TV off, and when you do keep pressing the remote button, the red light on the TV will keep flashing like that also. Ive seen this prob on a few other blogs, so seems to be pretty common. I know I like to keep the remote pointed at the TV all the time, maybe try pointing it away for a while, just to see.

    Id also try unpluggin the tv for a day.

    Or maybe the tv remote receiver is picking up an infared signal from another source or remote nearby.

    And my last shot in the dark would be the on/off button on the tv is sticking or defective.

    Otherwise Id say something major was wrong and the tv's tryin to tell us something.

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...

Akai PT5598HDX/SMS won't turn on


Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.

Akai Plasma TV's screen suddenly went blank -model PDP4294


Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.

Our tv will not turn on


Our AKAI was just 14 months old. A few days ago, it died also. Blank screen, no sound, but the timer light will flash on a couple of times when you try to power it up. It even sounds like it wants to turn on. I paid a tech to come to my house $65 and it turns out to be the power supply $385. I checked other chat boards and many people are having this same problem with their AKAI 42" (PT4298HD) televsion. A real piece of junk this model! Sorry for the bad news!
