Question about Akai PTH5498 54" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Convergence board I can't get anybody to come out to look at my Akai PTH5498. I think I need a convergence board as it the screen is black at the top and the bottom and it has red and green lines outlining my words and numbers. I live in the country, Oklahoma. I've called Tulsa, Claremore, Muskogee, and I can't get any help from the repair shops.

Hello:

Yes is is your convergence IC's. One has gone bad, but consider replacing both of them because if one has gone bad then the other is not far behind. They are located on the middle board of your set. They are mounted on a large heatsink, the part # should be STK-392-040. Replace these and your set will work fine again.
