Question about Akai PT5598HD 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My Akai PT5598HDIX rear projection TV has been working fine for the past 3+ years. I had it on this morning (it was fine), then turned it on again a few hours later, and the screen is now "bowed" (like a bow tie) and the convergence is off at everypoint but center. You can see the three images (Red, Blue and Green) of the same picture simultaneously offset and overlapping one another on all sides. [Icalled] The Customer Care Center suggests that I call the local TV Repair shop to have someone look at it, but I think there should be a way to fix it myself (remotely). I have retreived and recorded (on paper) all of the menu settings (using Mute, 1, 8, 2, power) and then tried the "reset" function with no success. Any ideas?
The problem is the EW cicuit of the deflection cicuit. this is a component level repair call a tech. the EW or East West correction is apart of the horizontal deflection. IC431 is the pin amp.
