Akai rear projection tv suddenly stopped working.


This set with Akai is actually made by Samsung (they own and use the Akai name).

If lamp light etc and you have heard a cracking sound it may be the color wheel.

You can remove the lamp and look where it faces--look and the wheel can be seen----is it shattered or missing plastic pieces?

The wheel commonly fails in this fashion and is turning at over 12,000 rpm. The set will detect if the wheel is stopped or moving too slow and just what you describe will happen.

Wheel is widely available and You Tube has video instructions for replacing them by model number.

Questions?

TV wont turn on


You can try unplugging it for 4 hours. Like I have said you have 2 options replacing the parts that are possibly bad. Which is common on these tv's. It will run 550-1000$. Your more economically viable solution is to replace the tv.
If you need further assistance please ask.
Thanks,
Lee

Won't turn on


If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).
