sounds like you have an output power supply going bad.

the tv is crt projection...which is to say due to its age and technology it will probably be cheaper to just get a new tv.

Sometimes these older style sets end up with compenent board solder breaks that can be spotted visually and fixed by a talented repairman.

My friend had this done to a similar 55 inch set he has about 3 years ago....he just won't give his up either!

good luck and be careful! There is lots of high voltage inside that tv!

Sounds like the STK packs are bad. Maybe change convergance amps along with protect fuses or low ohm resistors on the PCB

it should be in the menu setting under the audio section it should be a yes or no option - if option exist for fixed audio make sure to check no

Try Unplugging the tv from the power for about 15 minutes then try it.

Akai PT5598HD... | Answered on Oct 18, 2009


This could be the tuner damaged or a regulator damaged depending where the surge entered the set. Lighting will damage tuners while line power surges will damage regulaters and often horizontal output transistors along with sweep mode power supplies. Since you have audio I would suspect the horizontal output transistor first and check it from collector to base and emmiter for short with a digital volt ohm diode check meter. Check with diode check mode.

There are lenses in the tv,on the projectors that are not lined up.Have you went to menu and selected the color configure?It will configure the color.If this does not fix the problem,then the projectors are out of line.This would have to be done by a tv repair tech.I hope this has helped.If so ,please let us know,thank you.

If you have gone into the customer menu and selected convegence--is blue or red out of place and will not adjust?

Akai is a brand name and the sets are actually SAMSUNG---this model
(pt5598) uses two STK-392-040 CONVERGENCE CHIPS.

If convergence is your problem--both chips need to be replaced--there are also some fuses near them that sometimes fail---not the most easy set to do this kind of repair on.

If it is not a Convergence problem---Only one other possible thing happens with these=====if you turn the color off or go to a black and white program----does the screen have a yellow looking cast to it?

This may be mostly in the center or top etc ---let me know if it is convergence or the YELLOW looking screen and I can tell you exactly what the problem is and if it is worth fixing.
