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

1 Answer

Snowy Screen Good afternoon! I have Direct TV. I have had Direct TV for almost two years now and the picture was always not quite perfect. Recently, the picture just simply went out. Very, very snowy and you can even here that we don't have reception with a static noise. I have called Direct TV. They said that it was not them, that it is the TV. We have a HDTV TV but don't have a HDTV box for the satelite. They said all we have to do is lower the settings on the TV. Is this true? If, so can you help? One more thing. I don't have a control for the TV no more. If I need to purchase one to fix this, please tell me how. Thanks! Any help is appreciated!

Sounds to me like you using coax wire from your dtv. how about trying s-video and audio cables. if using coax, then your prob using the push on wire that came with the sat. these go bad all the time.

Sony 43"/projection (older) suddenly after 18 years has a snowy and less than perfect picture. It will "pop slightly" and the picture will come back to perfect. Any clue?


Your picture tubes are failing. There are no parts available for this TV and your money is better spent on a new flat panel. That is the grid guns starting to short out.

Hello, I have exactly the same problem with the exact same TV, white screen for about 15 minutes and than image appears perfect as if nothing happened. I have asked an ebayer which sells TV parts and he suggested it could be a main board or tcon board. I am quiet hesitant to fix my tv, but if the tcon board would fix it, i'd go for it. Did You manage to solve the problem yet?

One T.V. snowy on Sat., clear on local channels, others are fine?


if you recently got dishnetwork call the company that installed the system for a repair person, they HAVE to fix it. if you put it in yourself it sounds like the lnb is bad or the dishnetwork splitter is bad or not hooked up right. this kind of problem is a reminder that paying an extra $5 a month for service warranty is a good deal. if something is wrong with anything then, a phone call to dishnetwork will get new equipment sent to you or a service tech sent to fix it. i don't presently work for dish or direct or a cable co but i know that's how things work.

Picture


yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
