Need a higher bulb than 100w, Do they make them for this tv set?
I have a Zenith E44w46lcd. It got very dark so I changed the lamp bulb # ze6912voooo6c. It is still dark and I was wondering if they made a bulb that has a higher than 100w that I can put into the tv set?

You will burn up the plastic components in your television if you go with a higher wattage.The cooling system is designed only to handel the specified wattage.Also your set will shut down doe to increased internal temp.I do not reccomend using a higher wattage.You may have dust build up the optics of the light engine or a dirty colorwheel.LG made optics are notorius for getting dirty.Time for a professional cleaning.

there are 2 clocks 1 for lamp and 1 for total, the total you cant change. dark picture, make sure your got same wattage lamp for replacement, I find original Philips lamps the best. if it continues follow manufacture instructions on cleaning mirror and lens.
I would suggest to remove the lamp from your TV and check it. You can also just buy the lamp without the other hardware.
This site seems to have good prices.
Let me know if you need any more assistance.
I found the location to get at the lamp. If you are loking at the front of the TV there is a small panel at the bottom of the right end. Two screws, remove panel, two screws inside and a small handle that lifts so you can slide the unit out. 4 screws on top of the cage that the lamp sits in, carefully slide up the silver bracket holding the bulb, be careful the edges are sharp. Remove the bulb from bracket and remove the 2 cables attached to the bulb. Now just do the same but in reverse. Make sure you wear plastic gloves that should be provided because if your fingers touch the lense you could be out the price of the lamp.
