    I have Akai authorized repair center coming this week - will notify all what they find - To find authorized repair center call Akai customer service 1-888-697-2247 . Their customer service seems pretty good and - THEY SPEAK ENGLISH !!!!! Repair people I spoke to said if he had to guess, it sounds like convergence module ($400 part - still cheaper than replacing entire tv) . Will post the final results.

If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).

I have a 55 inch Akai rear projection tv.When I turnit on,the red timer light blink,and that is all.I've heard about this problem on here before.No pic and no sound


on the main board of the tv there is a fuse located if that is faulty this can happen,there are also many other possibilities but check out the fuse first many a times replacing the fuse solves the problem as its very negligible to replace the fuse the cost of fuse is under $1.

Replace shorted Q431,can use a 2sc3998, open r448 .47ohm resistor. after you get set on beware of convergence ic's may have been shorted causing all the problems.Check r859 &r858 .47 ohm 1 wtt that supply - &+ 20 volts to convergence packs, if open replace packs & check low ohm resistors on convergence ,I found r2144 &r2145 open replaced & all systems go "good luck"
