It jus depends on your electronic back ground and if you have multimeter and solder equipment. or a little easier ifnyou can confirm it is the power/deflection cba it is sold as an entire assemble in this model that does not require solder work to change. big board on the right looking at from rear with large black transformer on it with red wire coming from top. a company called vance baldwin sells these parts

Check for bad connections on your yoke plugs. Each pic tube has its own yoke and will go to the main pc board, It will be a 4 wire plug w red, blue, etc. Two for vertical two for horizontal.

I have blue ghosting in our TV picture

if the picture looks kinda 3-D
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} The best advice I can tell you at this point is to go to and order the complete convergence kit for your model of TV set, no need to search and order multiple parts from different sources and pay multiple shipping fees! The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC’S , not those cheap aftermarket or china made IC’S full pictorial directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most cases you may need to open the set and tell them what the STK numbers are on the chipsGOOD LUCK!!!

I have an AKAI TV...Model Code #PT4250AX/SMS - Rear Projection TV. The TV was being used and a pop sound was heard and then the tv was black (no audio, no video). Now when you turn on the power the red...

My recommendation is to call a local svc co. Since you heard a pop, it could be anywhere in the set. It requires trouble shooting to isolate where the problem is. I hope this is help-full for you.

Akai PT5598HDX/SMS won't turn on

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.
