The Samsung LN40B540P8F I would rate a 9. Only God is 10.

All the DLP sets, you can throw out

All the Older Projection sets you can throw out

I would take the rest for scrap parts.

I hope this is helpful.

Fuzzy picture on tv 54in


Check your coaxial cable connection and inspect it wiggle it while the set is on if the problem clears replace the cable. Check to see if the male connector that sticks out the back of the set isint loose to the point where it moves when you touch it. If it does you need to have it looked at by a tech usually this problem can be solved with a little soldering but could get more complicated. Depending on the age of the set the fluid in the CRT's gets old and cloudy and light cant shine through it makeing your picture appear fuzzy. Your local tech should be able to change the oil in your set. Finally you could have some bad filter caps but I doubt it.

Do the AKAI PTH 5498 TV's have replaceable lamps like you hear so much about for other rear projection TV's? And if so, any suggetions on where to find the lamps? I am hoping this can improve the sharpness...


No your model has three CRTs (picture Tubes) cleaning the mirror may help to restore the sharpness and brightness unless you have other issues. I would try cleaning the mirror first. Dont use windex, just a soft damp cloth with water then dry

Change CRT coolant in AKAI Pt5598HD


The CRTs in modern TVs do not hold a charge because the HV circuit shunts it to ground whenever you power down the TV. You can clean the lens of the CRTs but you can't change the coolant or should you even try. You'll notice that its sealed from the factory. If you suspect a problem with the coolant or that it has dried up or leaked out, you must replace that CRT.

Burning smell and distorted picture


One of the components in the horizonatl deflection circuit went bad like a capacitor,the price will depend on the actual part that went bad and your location,the service call in NY could be 300.00 but in pittsburgh might only be 150.00.I still belive is wort repairing.
