Flashing LAMP light; no picture, no sound. HELP!

Model: AKAI PT50DL14X/SMS

We just bought this used TV, get it home and SURPRISE! It doesn't work! We we try to turn it on and the LAMP light on the front just flashes for maybe 30 seconds, then the STANDBY/TIMER light flashes for a bit. You can hear it trying to click on, and it sounds like something inside is spinning. We've tried unplugging it, leaving it off for awhile then trying again but it always does the same thing. We're just hoping someone on here can help before we take it to the shop (Hopefully, we won't have to!).

I think i have the solution to your problem,
I think that the lamp has gone out in your tv. You should try changing it out. I work with many tv's with DLP's and it almost always is the lamp. YOu can order it online, there is a slot on the side of the tv were you can change it out through there, the lamp should have a number on it. And its pretty simple to do. So there you go..and I could have gotten you a better deal on your Tv.

THE END

SOURCE: Akai DLP projection TV. Picture is fine except

The problem is the light tunnel is collapsing. This is a VERY common issue with the Samsung/Akai DLP TV's. It is four mirrors used to transfer the light after it passes the color wheel to the DMD board. When part of it collapses the grey bar that you are seeing is the end result. This is a part that usually requires a technician to replace as there is a little tear down of the light engine itself and you would be handling delicate parts. The part number for the tunnel assembly is BP96-01961A and I have included a link so you can purchase it through the Samsung website. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks..

Linda .....no its not the lamp thats causing the whirring/buzzing sound but the colour wheel, its housed in the light engine you will need to replace the whole light engine cos the inbuilt colour wheel is worn out this causes the buzz hence the lamp may not light up or u may have shut downs flickers on the pix or color issues

Akai rear projection tv suddenly stopped working.


This set with Akai is actually made by Samsung (they own and use the Akai name).

If lamp light etc and you have heard a cracking sound it may be the color wheel.

You can remove the lamp and look where it faces--look and the wheel can be seen----is it shattered or missing plastic pieces?

The wheel commonly fails in this fashion and is turning at over 12,000 rpm. The set will detect if the wheel is stopped or moving too slow and just what you describe will happen.

Wheel is widely available and You Tube has video instructions for replacing them by model number.

Questions?

AKAI Rear Projection 46"TV has a blank picture with sound only


Hello,


Is it a CRT or a DLP/LCD projector? If not a CRT, a worn-out projection lamp can cause this symptom. When it is a DLP projector, a faulty Colour Wheel sensor can be the additional problem. If it is a CRT projection unit the High Voltage and deflection circuit must be examined...

Please tell me more about your unit...
