Question about Akai PTH5498 54" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I am trying to help my kids by seeing if we could fix this TV. We have called multiple TV repair places and they won't even come out and look at it when we tell them the brand and model number. It was working fine and then one day just crapped out. The picture and menu look like your seeing it trough one of the wavy mirrors that they have at the circus. I think this is convergence, but not sure. I have struggled thru the menu to get manual convergence up on the screen, but none of the arrow buttons seem to respond when I press them. I thought that I could manually line the crosses back up. Please help.
Your going to have to replace the convergence IC's(two). Its a dangerous job if you have no training with tv sets. Please try to find a tech who will assist you in this repair.
