Zenith TV E44W46LCD Picture Problem

My next door neighbor has a Zenith E44W46 LCD Projection TV and it has a problem. The TV worked fine for the past 2 years and all of a sudden they only get a picture by using Picture In Picture. It has sound and gets a picture in all PIP modes but the screen is blank in full picture mode. When you use PIP to split the screen in 1/2, it only gets a picture on the right side. I pulled the bulb and it looks OK and I can see it lighting from the back so I tend to think the bulb is OK, it either works or doesn't work, right? Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong, before we place a service call? THANKS for reading! Mike

The PIP module is bad or the video processor circuit. Most likely a main board replacement will be neccasary. Good Luck

My zenith e44w46 turns on have sound but cant see the picture

Please tell me if you hear any clicking noise while turning on the set. If not tell me what is the status of the stand by/timer light at the front. Does it blink? If yes then how many times does it blink in between each pause. Let me know this info so that we can continue the diagnosis.

How can i replace the lamp by myself

if you are standing in front of the TV, look on the right side. There is a door with two screws (phillips) remove the two screws and open the door. Inside you will see a black object with a silver handle and two black screws. remove the screws and pull the lamp straight out by the handle. I you buy a factory bulb, you can just slide it right in. If its an aftermarket bulb, then you have to put it into the housing. Be careful not to touch the glass portion of the bulb with your bare hands. the oils in your skin will shorten the life of the buld. Just like replacing a vehicles bulb. hope this works for you.

Zenith 44" LCD TV

The yellow spot is due to the BLUE LCD and/or lens assy cracked, reason, to much HEAT! The blue is the darkest color and hold the most heat, so it goes first, always! In some cases it’s only the lens, however most of the time LCD is damage to. Parts are available, however install and alignment is timely. Quick fix is the complete light engine, which for model# E44W46LCD is part# 3141VSN916C, which customer cost is $1,449.27, wholesale for about $1,065.21. Rebuilt, if you can find it around 850.00 to 950.00. However the rebuilt does not always look as good as factory. My advice, TRASH set. This part will fail again in about 3 to 4 years, unless you watch a lot of white video. Remember, on a black or dark picture, all three LCD are blocking 100% of the light, causing extreme heat within the light engine. It’s a bad design.

Zenith E44W46LCD 44 in. Rear Projection (Wont Turn on)

I bought an open box unit at Best Buy, it had no remote or manual. Go to, click on owner's manuals, answer the 4 questions using drop down menus and then you can download an owner's manual and save it to your computer/burn it to a CD/print it out. If you choose to print it out, beware, the manual is 60 pages. One of the 4 questions they ask is "Product", choose Projection TV, not LCD TV. The 4th question is "Model Number", mine is E44W46LCD, is guess everyone's here is the same, duh.
For the remote, I looked in the phone book for an authorized Zenith TV repair company. I called them and gave the model number and paid over the phone. I had the remote shipped to my home address. The total including tax and shipping was $50. The remote they sent is a large Zenith mulit-function #6710v00102k. I don't know if that is the remote that would have came with the TV, it worked without having to program it first. It can control TV/VCR/Cable/DVD/Sat. I t has controls for 6 inputs, SAP, mute, Surf, Video, Picture in Picture, Ratio (16:9, 4:3, Zoom, etc), CC, Freeze, Menu, and controls for DVD and VCR (rewind, play, etc). If you can't find a place in your area to get the remote, Email me at and I'll look up where I got mine from. It came from Palm Desert, CA.
I don't know about your TV not coming on, is it plugged in? If it is, that's about all I've got. Gregg
