Question about LG RU-60SZ30 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Blue tint I have an LG RU-60SZ30 LCD rear projection TV. The unit is 2 years old, lamp indicator and temp indicator lights do not come on during operation, but it has developed a blueing effect on the picture. It first started in a small portion in one of the corners and has progressively invaded the rest of the picture. It's not to bad when first turned on but gets worse. Menu options do not allow me to work on the convergance. Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Blue tint

I'm sorry to give you this news, but the optics unit (light engine) is defective. I have seen this problem on many occasions. Call LG customer service and some units have an extended warranty for this problem.

Re: Blue tint

We have had our RU-60SZ30 for almost 3 years. After 13 months it did the same thing, LG covered the cost of the part,($3000.00) according to their certified repair center, but they charged us $500.00 for labor. Now today, 15 months later it is doing it again. I just got off the phone with LG and they say "too bad, you're out of warranty" So my TV that I paid $4000.00 for, has gone out twice in less than 36 months and LG says, "Oh well" After searching the web I found a law firm in New York that looks like they are putting together a class action suit regarding our model. Go to WWW.ZLK.COM/ZENITHTV.HTML and fill in the questionaire.

LG RU-60SZ30 when turning the tv on the power lite changes from red to flashing amber, flashes 6 to 7 times then turns back to solid red. The tv never actually starts. Before this the tv would randomly...

I have read another solution which may indicate the light engine has failed and will likely need replacing. The cost is quite expensive. $1500 range and apparently the part is no longer available from LG. Best you might do is get an estimate to repair just to be sure.

The bulb you are buying is not the origianl one. The life of you bulb is too short, probably it was use before. Buy a original bulb and new.
