Akai PT5492S 54" Rear Projection TV

I recently started to get blue ghosting around letters, figures, etc on my 54" projection TV. I also have some yellowing on the white background, especially near the bottom and left hand portion of the screen. How can I fix this, and is it worth fixing at this point??

    Akais TV is real fuzzy and has ghosting or shadowing around all the letters. Really hard to see.

Your set needs to have both Convergence ICs replaced they are Both STK392-010 you can get new ICs at the following link and they provide free step by step instructions with pics so you can do the job yourself which takes about 45 minutes. Heres the link.

Akai projection tv has static in it but it goes in and out with the static sound and picture


If it does not do it via the rear audio and video jacks (a DVD etc) problem may be a bad tuner or even a bad connection on the cable wire or fitting at rear of set--move the cables at connection points with set on to see if a reaction.

If not from DVD etc there is a way around this issue.

The convergence sensors either need to be re-initilized or one of them is bad. The service menus needs to be acsessed to re-initilize the sensors.
