Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

DONT BUY AKAI

MY HD TELEVISION BROKE 4 MONTHS AFTER I BOUGHT IT, IT TOOK ME A FEW MONTHS TO FIND THE RECEIPT BECAUSE I HAD MOVED. THE TELEVISION GOT PICKED UP FOR REPAIR BY THE COMPANY AND ITS BEEN 5 MONTHS AND THEY KEEP SCREWING ME AROUND. I CALL EVERY TWO WEEKS AND THEY KEEP TELLING ME ANOTHER MONTH. WORST CUSTOMERS SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD. COMPLETELY UNSYMPATHETIC, THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND THE WORST CASE IS THAT YOU CANT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE A VERY EXPENSIVE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT OF YOURS. MY ADVICE IS TO GO TO COSTCO AND BUY A BRAND THAT WONT BREAK IN 4 MONTHS

I concur.
I find that the most durable HDTVs are made by LG or Samsung. For best image quality, Toshiba and Sony take the cake. It's always worth it to hold off and save up some extra cash - Your downtime will be much more vivid :) Good luck to you.

Ihave a 50 in lcd vizio its been 4 months that i bought it it doesnt turn on at all,i dont know where i left the receipt


It should have 1 year warranty---if paid by credit card etc you can use that with most major stores--most will work with you on this.

Also most warranty stations will "take it" under warranty--they want to get paid to fix the unit under warranty--we have done this in our shop.

Have the hd-56g647 model and has no sound the picture is good


I have the HD-56G657. When I first bought the TV, we did not know that you have to let it cool/shut down completely before trying to turn it on again. Plus: It was under warranty Minus: It took almost 6 months for them to finally fix the problem. (A sound board or something was fried) I think the part if you are not still covered under warranty is like $180 +labor.

Olympus FE 3010 screen is cracked :(


If you bought it online, your credit card company would have a record of the purchase. Also, the company you bought it from should have a record of the purchase. Speak to their customer service representative. If you received e-mail confirmation of the purchase, you might still have it if you save e-mails.

Buzzing


Mine has the buzzing. I even created this current one out of 2 damaged ones, the original internals did it as do the internals I took out the "new" one I got (it had a smashed screen). I noticed it stops completely when muted, but not when the volume is on 0. It also gets louder when the contrast is higher (just flick between the preset PICTURE MODE's). I think it's something to do with the internal speaker cables perhaps running too close to the display circuit or whatever (Im not sure what causes it, its normally electrical interferance being picked up by an unshielded cable). I'll no doubt get hacked off and reopen it soon to look about. I'll post back when I do, may be a few months though!

Broken screen on a 37 inch hd lcd


That may have been an expensive tantrum - I doubt if it will be repaired as a warranty item and the typical cost of replacement makes it a costly lesson.
I doubt if the LCD panel is priced under $6-700.

Video problems with my westinghouse LTV 32 W 3 HD


This seems to be associated with the overheating of some component. On my set I need to check that the backlight is set to a low level. On reset it automatically adjusts to a level above maximum and the green screen will appear in a few minutes. I took the back off and that helped some.

You may want to check the solid state fuse on the power suppy or which can be called the inverter. The fuse will blow and finding a fuse can be hard.

Power Supply


I have the same problem,

first poser supply lasted just over three years at 92-- foot elevation,  the next one lasted 3 months, just long enough to get past parts warranty, and NEC/local tech wants $800 to replace the power supply that took 3 months to get in before.

 

Nope, just bought a new HD Vizio and moved on.  Better picture and BIGGER picture.
