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

1 Answer

Guest you are the best, but I'm still lost!

Thank you so much 'guest'. I've been freaking out since I was told by a repairman that it would cost me $400 to fix, and I tried your little unplug routine and it worked. The t.v turned on, but the screen was all wonky. I now have to purchase the replacement part. The part number you supplied for comes up as two items. One is for akai and is $156, and the other is for samsung for $77. which one will work for my akai 55 projection t.v?

Hello creativeeye1,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: My best assessment for this problem would be that the fuse on the power supply board or the entire board, may have been gone bad. In either case, the cost to diagnose or repair this printer would cost you more than it is worth. The best recommendation is to purchase a $75.00 replacement instead of paying $80 to $125 to repair this one.

Have a good day!

I need a schematic or photos of the under carriage of a Babylock BL1556. No repairman will fix mine. I have it disassembled at this time, and all of the new parts have arrived. Now I need see how it is...

the lower shaft (hook) gears should be no problems for any trained tech to replace and should not need any shafts to be removed. the pattern selector is usually sold as a module and factory set which is why you are getting the high quote as there is no guages or info on these settings. if you have the parts now have you gone back to the original repairman as i assume you have already paid for some of the work and this would be cheepest option for you. the last option is to send it to babylock as they have a repair techs who would be able to sort it out for you

I was told by a repairman that my convergence module is bad on my ws 55511 or best buy model ws b55 was wondering what a convergence module cost. my power went off and when it came on the red images were...

Any shop with experience should be able to replace the convergence ICs which are the likely problem. This type of repair will cost less than the boaqrd replacment and won't require a conmplete reconvergence adjustment. The parts cost around $25-$40 each (there are 2).

I would look for someone that is able to change the ICs rather than the entire board.

I called sears recall dept 1 888-548- 1509 told to make a service call about F problem and if that is the cause your charge for service call will be refunded and a new control board installed at known charge.The 27082 is not on the recall list yet but sears is aware of this condition.Don't give up just keep calling and ask that a copy of your call and complaint be forward to your address ,sears receives numerous call's each day about F1 control boards.

Cal them your self now and see if they will do this repair 1 888-548- 1509

there are many reasons why a ref stops working, you have not given any symptoms of what happened before it stopped working. The best solution is to call Sears and purchase a "service smart agreement" which will cover repairs up to $500 per repair for a year. there are other details to the agreement. the cost is about $240, but it's the best thing going.
