Question about Projection Televisions
Hello, the problem that I am having with the akai pt46d10, on Dec 29/07 the projection bulb blew, made a pop noise no picture. pulled out bulb (broken filiment) replaced bulb jan 02/2008 had modify wiring differant bulb although same wattage and voltage. tv worked great. the following day tv would not turn back on, looked thru the grille at back could see illumination from bulb lasted approx 1 minute then went black, (turned off) now I am stumped do I try another bulb hoping that the first is defective? or are there any other checks, cooling fans do come on. tv is approx 21 months old thanks Doug
got mine working better unplugged the sound and wiggled the plastic coated wire above the large fan works but freezes maybe once in a day some days never have the sound running through the receiver (surround) I shut it off and it comes back on when it does freeze figure loose connection

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.

That unit has a couple of various problems that are common. The first, I would check the 2d comb filter for ring cracks. If you see any resoldering them should restore the picture,
