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

1 Answer

Faint Yellow and/or Blue Tint on the Ice during hockey games ( or similar color situations)

Hey Dobbin. I ran into the subject mentioned problem and noticed that the "bulb" icon/indicator on the front of the set had come on at the same time I noticed the problem. I have a replacement lamp on the way. Is there a chance that the bulb/lamp will fix the problem?

No the bulb indicator is on a timer just meaning that is is reaching its "expected" life. The lamp will cause a dim picture or no picture it will not cause color deformities sorry. The light engine to fix that set is also priced higher than the set is worth.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Projection has yellow tint


From your description, it sounds like a problem with the blue color. Green LCD=purple onscreen, Red=cyan(baby blue) onscreen, Blue LCD=yellow onscreen. It could be a lot of dust on the blue lcd panel, or worse, might be a burned polarizer filter behind the lcd panel due to excessive heat. If you can focus on the yellow and its tons of yellow specs, its dust. A burned filter however, must be replaced. A technician trained in projectors will have to do it. The filter material is glued to a thin glass panel and is replaced as a single filter. It's a very involved repair.

Color changed suddenly, no red, just green/yellow/blue


Sounds like the color wheel has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is located behind the back panel.

GL2 drops in blue tint or yellow blocks


Your GL2 has a case of clogged heads. If the clogging is minor, you can clean by using head cleaning tape. 1.Open the tape door and blow out any dusts present. 2. run tape cleaner for about 10 seconds but NO MORE. Hope it works. -James.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
