You can try unplugging it for 4 hours. Like I have said you have 2 options replacing the parts that are possibly bad. Which is common on these tv's. It will run 550-1000$. Your more economically viable solution is to replace the tv.
If you need further assistance please ask.
Thanks,

    are you trying to fix this yourself? Can you solder? If not then this would not be possible. It will cost more to fix then the TV is worth. I am sorry if you do not like the answer. but likeability is not a quality that a good solution needs to have.
    Thanks,

Tv wont turn on


I have no clue who makes your TV or the model so I can't really help you. Count how many times it flashes and start googling for the answer. Include all the info you can next time.

RED LIGHT FLASHES 10 TIMES BUT WILL NOT TURN ON!


There might really be a problem with the unit. Try unplugging it out of the power outlet and plug it back in after 30 seconds. If your using a power box (voltage regulator), try plugging it directly to the outlet. If all nothing happens, see a local tv tech in your area. The unit could be damaged.

Only the red light comes on


Whats up Wade?

This is DVD MIKE with Perfectimagess.Try this first .Unplug the TV for a while and press the On/Off button which is supposed to perform a "reset".After that, plug the TV back in. It should come on and the Timer light off. The picture and colors might be distorted, but pressing the Perfect Focus button on the remote control resolves this right away.

The problems is a black picture or the TV won't turn on. The Timer light stays lit even though no Timer has ever been set. The colors converge and the picture is pinched. I don't think all of the expensive repairs are necessary, My TV did go out after a week of non-use while out of town (I was out of town, not the TV). I don't know. I'll post more if I learn more. I hope this helps Wade,

Vacuum the dust off of the circuit boards and inside the cavity. TAKE CLOSE UP PICTURES OF THE CONNECTORS BEFORE DISCONNECTING FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARDS. (IF YOU HAVE TO.) TAKE OUT CIRCUIT BOARD MOUNTING SCREWS. AND REMOVE THE BOARDS.

VACUUM THE DUST. LOOK- SMELL AND CLEAN THE GROUNDS, AND CAREFULLY CLEAN THE BOARDS. ASSEMBLE. DOUBLE CHECK CONNECTIONS WITH PHOTOS,
AND PLUG IN, TURN ON AND HOPEFULLY ITS ALL GOOD.

WADE WORK WITH ONE HAND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE SON!!

Akai PT4298HD problemo


I'm not a repair guy, just happen to have one of these TV's. Seems to me that unplugging the Convergence Board removes it from the equation and suggests something else might be the problem. I got most of my help from here and also from this thread:

http://www.tv-forums.com/forum/TV_Equipment_C4/Projection_TV_Forum_F24/Samsung_42_Convergence_problem_P4569/

The samsung TV is the same TV as this Akai, it's just a rebadged Samsung.

One important difference in my TV from yours. I did have a timer light, and with the back off, I could hear it power up when I plugged it in and turned it on. The timer light would flash then it would go off.

When I removed the convergence board, I could clearly see burn marks on the bottom of the board where one of the amps was soldered on. That gave me some piece of mind in ordering the part. I just scanned that other thread but remember some people talking about the power supply failing as well as the main board, you might pursue those avenues.

I wish you luck in fixing this!
