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

1 Answer

Horizontal lines When the TV first turns on, a bunch of gray horizontal lines appear at variable positions.  After a short period of time, the screen usually clears up.  This also occurs when the channel is changed or when the video transition between different scenes rapidly.  What are the possible causes?  And how difficult would it be to resolve? Thanks, Toy

Check all caps in power suppy and vertical. but i would point to the power supply first. the last tv i seen with this problem, i ran it for 20 minutes, and turned it off and felt the tops of all caps, found one or more that was hot. there was the bad caps, without the headache of checking all of them on the cap checker. this might not work for you. not all bad caps get hot.

The problem here is heat related and can be as simple as poor solder connections at the vertical IC or a defective IC. If you can supply the make and model, more detailed information can be posted. If you can solder, there you may be able to fix this your self. Please update this with the make and model as well as whether or not you wish to attempt the repair and additional details and instructions will follow.

We had a blue cone on the screen. We have adjusted the sharpness, contrast, and cross hairs. The cone has almost completely disappeared, but we still have blue shadows. Could this mean a blown color tube?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Horizontal multicolored lines appearing


Open up the TV and unplug and re-plug the connectors to the circuit boards. This is most often caused by a poor connection of the circuit board connectors.

Your vertical output IC has stopped working. This is usually caused by the solder joints cracking loose and the IC will either short out inside or just stop working. Sometimes a small capacitor next to the IC, called the pump-up cap, will go bad and cause the IC to fail. In any case, the vertical output IC should be resoldered or replaced and all circuits checked by someone experienced in repairing TV's.
