i think you need a new convergence board they rin from about 88.00 to about 140.00

Its a DLP that uses a lamp, lamp is possible but I would also look to see if fans are on and running, a fan stopping or even slowing down can trigger the set off also.

Average lamp life is 2000 hours or two years and set if lamp a bit dim may shut set off.

Replace the convergence amp board and that should solve the issue.

In the customer menu first look for convergence--if this is Akai it is made by Samsung.

in the convergence menu will be either a grid of lines or several crosses--examine and see if your red line is out of position there.

If it is it may just require with the remote adjustment in that menu.

Cleaning will not resolve a red line.

let me know what you find.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....



  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Replace R858 and R859...They also go bad frequently when the STK chips fail.

If the perfect focus isnt working its caused by failed convergence. You can get the convergence board from www.tvrepairworld.com its under the Samsung / Akai circuit boards.
