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.

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.

PT5299HD screen


I had the same problem trying to find a new screen. What I did was found a local plastics shop and had a piece of 1/8" plexy glass that has one side anti-glare. It was only $50, and its alot more durable.I had a few problems changing it though. First you have to pull the rear bottom panel lose, then the rear top. Once the screen is exposed (TAKE THIS ADVICE), put a small piece of tape on one of the top corners and mark its position. This has a two part screen and the inner one is a image magnifier and goes only one way. It took me 4 trys to reposition it right for a correct picture. Once you do this carefully unbolt the two side and top screen brackets. Make sure you dont mess with the four centering sensers. Only loosen the screws on the bottom screen bracket. Take the screen out and seperate the two screens by removing the tape around the edges. You will now discover that only the outer antiglare screen is craked. Clean the three inner sides with windex and a paper towel, then use a cotton rag or tee shirt to eliminate any particles left behind. Once you get the screen in place dont over tighten the screws they strip very easy. Since you have the tv apart you should go ahead and blow all the componits off with a keyboard cleaner, and clean the bulbs with a super soft cotton teeshirt with a small spray of the windex on it, dont spray the bulbs directly, and do the same with the mirror. Remeber that all streaks will show up on the image screen. Clean the out side of the screen after you put it back together. Oh yeah, make sure its unpluged first.
