There are internal adjustments that may help or you could have component failure. Either way you should consult a qualified servicer. You should not pay more than 50.00 for service call and if just alignment, maybe 100.00 total. If there is parts failure, you could see a bill in excess of 2-300.00

We recently adopted a Akai TV model PT50DL24 and the sound and the picture is fine but very very dark. I tried adjusting contrast, colour,and brightness but remains a very dark picture. Please help!!


Tv have a word "LAMP" on it front face frame bazel?Yes,than this tv model have a projection lamp it is dying requirement of the projection lamp replacement.Tv can be save.Not no "LAMP" word on it the front bazel frame.Not repairable,because it is using CRTS-tv tubes tech.Sorry it is garbage tv time,those CRTS tubes are dying,not worth replacing and cost almost the same as a new tv itself,if u can buy it refurbish CRTS tubes anymore all.

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

Lamp red light is on when tv is on and not flashing tv info says solid light is lamp life expired but tv is working fine is this a problem.


It's only a problem when you try and finance a new bulb ($400.00 for mine). But seriously, the only "problem" is that an older bulb exhibits much lower light levels and the picture has crappy color, brightness and contrast. Keep a coffe can around and put a few bucks in it everytime you watch it. when the bulb finally blows you'll have a couple hundred bucks in there towards a new one. (a little easier to handle)

Akai pt4298hd picture is to bright


Sounds like dirty lenses to me. Do some research on optics cleaning for RPTVs. AVS is a good place to start. Also try this:
