Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

AKAI PT4298HD - Does not turn on

It has a red blinking timer light.

Picture was perfect before this so not sure its a convergence issue.

Internet research suggests a power supply board. what exactly is that, where do I get one, how can I be sure thats the issue?

Thanks,

Michael

    My set failed the same way.It worked just fine,then one night,my nine year old,turned it on.He said it made a hiss like noise,like normal,the screen flashed a second,then he heard a pop.Now all you get is a red flashing light,that responds to the remote.A very unprofesional repairman charged me $100 to tell me it needs a $360+ power supply.I don't wan't to give this guy more money.I am mechanically inclined and am willing to try this

Mine had the same symptoms. It was the convergence board. I replaced it and all is fine. the part number is BP95-00142E and is available from vancebaldwin.com. It's simple to replace...

you can check this before you buy the part. take off the lower back of the tv. Convergence board is on the right in about the middle of the tv - top of the lower part of the back. comes off with one screw. you can unplug the power (mine was a red plug), then plug the TV back in and it should come on. If it does, picture will be bad, (it can't converge the tubes, obviously), but you should see the picture.

good luck

Why won't my TV power on?!


Other than the power supply, it could be a cold solder joint on one of the PCBs. Easy to fix, but almost impossible to find.

Convergence issue, replaced convergence chips, now blinking red power light and no picture


Recheck all of your solder connections for bridging and cold solder joints. Check the large output resistors under the heat sink and the smaller ones to the left of them. Check all of the fuses on the power board. And make sure that you check all of your connectors carefully. Also check that you didn't pinch a wire somewhere.
I am not being mean by saying that if you could power up before then more than likely the power up issue was caused by something you did.

RED TIMER LIGHT BLINKS AND WILL NOT POWER UP HELP


Open back of TV, there will be two STK's (black boxes) unplug the harness connector from the power supply into the stk board and turn on. If you get some light to the screen, you know now to replace the two STK's and then replug the power supply to the convergence board. If that does not work, the power supply may also be bad.

No Picture, Not Convergence Board Problem


PVAT! Give a real close look at the signal pcb for evidence of coolant leak.That will pull down power circuits, giving all kinds of strange symptoms.

Powers Out and Power light blinks 3 times


If the picture turned yellow then that usually indicates a loss of blue. The blue CRT might have shorted out or the driver to it. The driver will be the lesser of cost in repairs.

Convergence


Your going to need to check the schematic and check the b+ going to the IC's as there maybe a bad capacitor. When the new IC's are installed it loads down the set or power supply. Its the bad power supply or the IC's are defective, but im thinking the power supply.
