You have just found out why the plasma sets are fading from the market.
I think you will find the replacement cost will make the set an uneconomical repair and you will then have the same thing happen again.

Since Akai is so poor on product support, they may not even have the actual part since that set was made by Samsung who also doesn't want to hear anything about them (their site doesn't recognize the Akai model number), you may be out of luck.
Sorry -

How do I remove burn images from a Sanyo TV?


I am assuming this is a Plasma TV? If so, Once an image is burned into the screen,there is now way to remove it. There are some ways to remove temp burn-in images like playing a white screen,and a screen wipe program. But,this only helps if you see a burn-in after watching the same image for a few hours. If the image has been played over a long period of time. "Like a store demo, security camera, ESPN like at a bar" There is no repair for this. And the screen will need to be replaced,and the cost of the replacement is sometimes more than buying a new TV. Sorry to have to give you this bad news. If you bought a extended war.? It may cover the burn-in. Some warranties
will cover that. It is worth a try.

After replacing bulb in my Sony Wega DLP a Starburst image is appearring on screen


Sounds like you have image retention better known as burn in. If this is the case then you need a new light engine. Which means if you can't live the bad screen buy a new tv. Light engine cost a lot of money to replace.

THE SCREEN GOES DOUBLE IMAGE ON ONE SIDE OR OTHER USUALY WHEN TURNED ON YOU CAN HIT IT ON THE TOP AND IT USUALY COMES BACK ON. THE SEARS SALES REP. TOLD ME IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE IT. I WAS TOLD...


Your lcd screen is bad and will need replacement. The problem is the LCD screens cost more that the TV. You can try to find a used one that might be economical.

53 inch projection tv...seems like the color red and color blue have shifted giving me a picture with red and blue shadows


For CRT projection TV's, this indicates that the Green picture tube is burned (warn out). The less green that strikes the screen, the more redish the image will look. You will need to find an old school TV repair shop that knows how to replace picture tubes.
In the case of a DLP style TV, the color wheel needs replacing.

Burned image on comp 1 chanel


When an image is burnt in to screen it is always there you just dont see it when you watch tv because of the changing video. On some sets you can burn the image out by using a all white screen, from a signal generator or from the service menu, turning the brightness all the way up and letting it play for 24 hours. Here are some websites that have software that is supposed to erase burn-in images, but you would have to hook tv to a computer, unless it can be copied to a dvd and played through a DVD player. Have not used it myself so not sure how or if it works. Be careful not to cause any more damage to screen. A new screen can cost a few hundred to over a thousand dollars to replace. Set should be taken to a panasonic repair shop to try burning it out with white screen approach, so if they damage it they have to fix it.

Samsung hdtv HLP5085wx no image. Smelled something burning and sparking, turned off the tv. Tried turning it back on = have sound, NO image!


OMG! Dude, your screen is just plain fried. You don't need a new screen though, You just need a new bulb for it. See, behind the screen is a light bulb (unless your T.V. is plasma screen), sometimes two or three, and that burning smell was the bulb blowing (like when you need to replace a light bulb in a lamp or something). I don't know where you can find a new bulb, but once you replace it everything should be fine.

Satellite menu image burnt in screen


Hi, no it cannot be repaired for a reasonable cost there are 3 tubes in your tv set, red,green & blue. Of course they are all fed the image so they all have the burn image on them, only recourse is to replace all 3 tubes, very expensive to do.
The problem will not get worse
The damage of course is permanent.
Hope this answers your questions, if not feel free to ask me more, Happy Holidays, .
