Question about Akai PTH5498 54" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I'd say your convergence needs to be done. There is a user-level service convergence option, which will get your convergence good enough to be watchable. A really tight precision conversion requires a little more.
Also, turn off Scan Velocity Modulation. You probably need to go to the service menu for this.
DO NOT PLAY AROUND IN THE SERVICE MENU.
With your tv off, press mute, then one, then eight, then two, then power on. You should not be in the service menu. Using the channel down buttons (or volume down, I forget which) go down to the "video options" choice. There are four, and I think it's the second one. One of them has the option to set VM level. Select this with volume down, then when you can change it, set it to zero. Now, keep hitting the menu button until you are back to the first screen. Now press the mute button twice. Now turn your tv off and back on. Now switch it out of "dynamic" picture mode (never use it).
To properly calibrate your tv, buy a copy of Digital Video Essentials.
