Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television
I have an Akai 46 inch rear projection TV. The red images is curved up at the top sides and curved down at the bottom sides. I have tried using the convergence to adjust the red and blue colors. The red cannot be adjusted on the sides. I can get the center squares to align, but not the sides at all. When I move to the blue, the squares are all green and no adjustment can make the blue even show up. When I go to perfect focus, it goes through the process, but does not improve the red color.Any ideas?
Yes! an idea that the flyback transformer is shot!

This sounds like your convergence correction amplifiers have malfunctioned. These Integrated Circuits often burn out after a few years (STK392-110) they can be replaced with a higher version (STK392-150) However it is important to have the biasing circuitry checked to make sure nothing has burnt out as a result of the ICs malfunctioning. If you have a background in electronics you can repair this problem with very little effort, however if you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you have your TV serviced by a qualified TV technician.
I hope this helps,
