AKAI Rear projection TV

Hey guys, I've been reading around this website looking for a similar problem but have yet to find one so here goes: Just moved. Hooked up the TV cable (don't have a digital box). Screen comes on, sound OK but picture flickers in greyish color. Looks as though 2 pictures are on at once. Turn the TV off. Wait until red lights off. Turn it back on. Same thing. Repeat. Same thing. Repeat. Same. After about 4 or 5 tries everything is fine. Realized the cable was going through a splitter and connected it directly from the wall. Worked immediately. Day later, same problem! Weird. Very frustrating seeing as how it takes about one minute between tries. Any ideas?

Try using different inputs besides the RF input. Connect your PS2 and DVD player using component inputs. With two component inputs, there's no reason in the world not to do this.

Akai projection tv has static in it but it goes in and out with the static sound and picture


If it does not do it via the rear audio and video jacks (a DVD etc) problem may be a bad tuner or even a bad connection on the cable wire or fitting at rear of set--move the cables at connection points with set on to see if a reaction.

If not from DVD etc there is a way around this issue.

How do I clean my projection TV?


They sell a cleaner in the electronics department at Wal-mart, Best Buy and similar stores that is made to clean these screens. I suggest Wal-mart becuase they only charge around $11.00 for this kit. Other places I've seen charges up around $20.00. The kit comes with a bottle of spray and a cloth. Make sure you use the cloth provided and follow the instructions that come with the kit.

Rear projection TV! HELP!


Try looking over the tuner solder joints as well as the pins where Input board feeds to the singal board. Sounds like a solder issue or a weak capacitor. Check the solder with a good quality magnifying glass. Let me know how you make out and I will try to help you through the process to nail it down.
