Curved red image on 46" Akai rear projection TV

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?

Red and green wavy lines


If the distortion that you see can be described as somewhat of a 3-D picture, the problem is teh convergence circuit and this can be fixed easily. Also, if you can solder, you can fix this yourself. If you wish to do this, please update this and I'll provide you with some instructions.

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,

 

Thank you,

Curved picture and double images


I had noticed your question before posting mine, since it appears no one had given you a solution thought i would share the solution given to me. Two different techs told me the same thing it would need a new convergence board. I ordered my board today hopefully have fixed soon as it arrives. I noticed your question has been hear awhile but thought maybe if you still needed some help I would share. It is going to save me $300 doing it myself, but if you are going to try make sure to talk to one of the techs first on live chat. Goodluck
