Question about Akai PT5598HD 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Akai 55 I have ghosting (mostly red) on my Akai 55" Projection TV, Model Number PT5598HD. The red is out of whack. I tried manual fix on the convergence and can''t get it straight. I have tried the direction in the users manuel, but the red doesn't move enough to line up. How can I fix this? Please help!

    I have the same problem. I have tried to adjust from inside but no matter what I do there is always a bluer. I believe if the colors would aline it would be OK.
    It is the worst at the bottom, you can hardly rear the text.

    I have the same problem. I used the "mute, 1, 8, 3" with the power on. I was able to line up the blue and the green grids, but the red grid will only adjust up and down. I need it to move left. I currently have a gap of almost 3 inches on the left side. If any one can help, I would appreciate it greatly!

This same problem just started on our TV this weekend. Did the Mute 183 thing, got the lines to align (kind of), but there is no "enter" button on the remote. maybe remotes are a little different. Where is "enter" button?

I used" Silerado 1st" solution. I have an Akai pt5598hdix/sms.
I had ghosting.Like 3 colors side by side.
Silerado said with TV off press "mute,1,8,2" then TV on.
I didn't see anything like a menu.He warned to write down any setting you saw before you change anything.But for me nothing came up. So as he said the next step try with TV "on" press "Mute,1,8,3" this is another set of adjustments for finer detail. I lined/overlapped all the lines up or down or side to side useing the channel and the volume buttons and then held the enter button down until the TV flashed 3 times.Then I shut it off and when I turned it back on It was perfect.

Akai rear projection tv...picture is not deformed....however there are images (Ghost image) in separated colors...like 3d


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

Akai projection tv ghosting


You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.
