Question about Akai PT5598HD 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
There is a red and blue shadow in my picture and have tried to fix the convergance, but it shows my blue is alligned and the red just won't allign. Some of the allignment lines are actually slanted. No matter what I try I can't seem to line them up, I can't even get them close! What do I do? i have a akai 55 inch rear projection tv , and the picture has bluish ghost like image on everything, its model #pt5598 hd, im being told its the convergance motor, and repairs would cost between 225 and 300 dollars, is this legit, or is it something i could fix myself ? thanks
IT sounds like it needs to be degaused.
Before checking this, check for speakers placed by the set. this will cause it too.
The best way to avoid this situation is
The coil that is used is about $50 and can sometimes be found at industrial electronics stores. It's called a degausing coil. most TVs have a version of this built in and mutiple power on/off/ons may fix it, but don't hold your breath...
The trick is to turn the coil on with it right up to the screen. Move the coil in a big circular motion parallel to the screen as you S-L-O-W-L-Y move away from the screen. when you are as far away as you can get [about ten feet] turn the coil off. Caution. KEEP HARD DRIVES, CREDIT CARDS, AND FLOPPY DRIVES AWAY from the energized coil!
