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

1 Answer

Blue spot and burned images on my hitachi 55vs69.

I have a 55in hitachi i purchased a little over a year ago, and sure enough, right when the year warranty ran out, i started noticing that images were beginning to burn into the screen. after a while, i noticed that the spot that images were burning on, now have a blue spot growing larger as i use my television. i guess my question is, is there a quick fix, or do i need to just buy a new tv. i don't wanna spend too much money fixing it when i can just go and buy a new tv.

3LCD Projection TV 2.5 years old displaying blue hue/blobs


I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.

Blue blur on part of the screen...toshiba ultra vision


Do you normally leave this set on a specific channel...such as CNBC or BLOOMBERG tv...etc that maintains a regular scrolling image???

If so...on sets that are a few/several years old...the projection tv screens can develop what's called a "burn" or "burned image" on the screen...similar to wearing a path in your carpet from heavy traffic areas. Newer models do not have this issues...but many older ones do.

Blue haze spot-yellow tint


I have the same problem with blue haze that just spread out on model 55VS69A ,
tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

Hitach SUCKS.

Good Day,

Sounds like the TV's convergence circuit has failed:
*Call an Authorized Service Center and them give you an estimate cost of the repair, or
*Repair it your self; get KIT 10 locally or B&D Enterprises

Good luck, big IRISH.

Hitachi 43FDX11B television Ghosting


I had the same problem on my Hitachi rear projection TV 53FDX20B made in Mexico. The blue convergence problem. Blue focus had shifted and appeared like a blue ghost image. I followed the step by step intructions from the fixya site. First Replaced the two STK 392-110 ICs and turned on the tv. No change. Then I went looking for the bad resistor. There was one resistor RK50 (2.7 ohm, 1Watt capacity) which is attached not right close to the printed circuit board surface but was well raised up from the board. The bands on the resistor were a little discolored. I replaced that one and turned on the tv. The convergence problem was solved. Thanks for the step by step instrucitons on your site.
