Question about Zenith E44W46LCD 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

Blue spots and blue specks

I have a large blue spot that begins at the top middle of the sceen and works it's way 3/4 of the way down the screen. It get's worse (larger) the longer the tv is on. I have also recently been getting blue specs in the bottom middle section of the tv. These appear to be more of a pixel issue. It began with 4 or 5 and has grown to 50 or 60 in the past week. Over the weekend I opened the tv to expose the lens and mirror. Neither appeared dirty or dusty but i did clean them anyway and the issues did not change. I have heard that this may be a voltage or soldering issue, both of which I feel comfortable checking and adjusting I just need to know which points to test, what their readings should be and which pot goes with which test point. If and where I can get a schematic would be good too. Any help is appreciated.

If you haven't heard yet, there is a class action lawsuit against LG/Zenith for this very problem. They are extending the warranty on certain models. Call Zenith at 800-243-0000 and press the prompt for electronics. Here is a link to the their website regarding the lawsuit.

I just happened to check the website. I've had the blue blob for over a year now. Looks like I will be getting a free repair ! You can also get reimbursed if you paid for a repair for this problem. It is a faulty light engine. Good Luck!

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

the problem with LCD tvs are that they have back lamps that shine thru the LCD sceen. the job of the screen is to block the light of the different colors to make the picture. the problem is that the very thin screen can not block all the light. if the set has a back lamp setting turn down the back lamps and adjust the brightness control it should help a little. you my notice that the blacks and dark sceens look better when the room is fully lit and look much worse in a darken room.

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.
