Question about LG RU-52SZ51D 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Blue on bottom of screen

I have an LG RU-60SZ30 that has given great service for nearly 3 years. There is a blue sunrise like effect on the bottom of the screen. It is not uniform and is brighter in some areas across the screen. It is about 2-3 inches up from the bottom. Is this a bulb?

    thank you for the quick reply and diagnosis. How much $ should I anticipate for the polarizer lens vs. the engine? Is replacing the lens extremely difficult or is it a matter of selling the whole motor for more $, rather than replacing the part? Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem on my RU-52SZ51D after about 3 yrs. I call LG and spoke to rep name Wendy. She sent a local t.v. repair company out. The repair man stated it was the engine and replace engine for FREE. You are not responsible for the cost LG is because it is a know defect with the t.v. You will have to fax in your bill of sale. FYI the tech stated that part has been upgraded with more fans for better air flow>

It is not the bulb it is the blue polarizer lens in the engine. LG has made it available and an LG authorized service center can probably replace it for you, although many are just replacing engines which will be VERY expensive. Good Luck

    It is pretty involoved, and under warranty the manufacture suggests replacing the engine. Some Service Centers have not yet started to learn much about the inside if the engines and may be uncomfortable tearing into it. It is not really a money thing because they will make a lot more repairing the engine than replacing it, because they can put a big labor charge on it and mark up the part some. I would say probably a 400-500 dollar repair with a 50 dollar part vs the engine probably a 1200 dollar repair being mostly part and they may lose the job all together because, will you spend 1200?

Have heard that it's a common problem, there's an issue with the optical block. Sony is susposed to be aware of the problem & has exptended the warranties on some models or offers gift cards towards the purchase of a new tv, depending on how hard u push once u get someone on the phone.

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.
