Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television
Picture looks 3d with double image. also bowed in center of screen.
With the indulgence of melnavz,
Your concern is a common problem with Akai, Samsung and some other rear projection TV units.
Normally this involves the Convergence ICs/circuitry and would require replacement. In some case, this would involve coolant fluid leak.
Repair of course would require that you be familiar with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM, a soldering iron and a service manual. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional. This might really be to your advantage since parts sourcing may be a bit of a problem as well as the alignment procedures after repair.
I doubt if the parts (if ever available) would be that expensive. It may be the service fees that would be of concern. In some instances the parts would only be available after some time (due to backlog of orders). With the downtime and repair time in mind as well as the total cost of repair, perhaps you may want to reconsider repair and simply purchase a new one to save you the trouble. I have to emphasize, the problem is repairable but other issues have to be considered.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Please try to unplug the power outlet to reset the setting automatically. and change the image setting of the TV. However, if this donot work. the projection of the TV maybe cause damage. On that case the error maybe in either in the horizontal or vertical setting of the tv. In this case you need a service tech to check the circuit inside. this needs a series of testing each parts of the TV. If the TV is less than a year then you can claim a warranty howver if this more than one year, service tech im sure it level on very reasonable cost same very cheap labor cost.
may this help, melnavz
