Zenith E44W46LCD

Blue streak angled across screen top to bottom. About 10" width. More of a shadow instead of straight line. Seems like it is becoming worse.

Re: Zenith E44W46LCD

This is likely a bad light engine, or so I'm told by the LG electronics. The cost of the part can be as much as you paid for the set itself. Call customer service and let them know of your problem and then ask to escalate the issue. LG electronics, although not admitting fault, tried to find a service rep but eventually bought back my set at a pro-rated amount. Overall, I was very satisfied with their support. Best advice I can give you is to not buy a rear projection set again, LCD or DLP. Lamps are expensive and design is unreliable. LCD flat screen is your best option, in my opinion.

I have a blue haze across the bottom of the tv screen. About 1 1/2 inches tall. what causes this?

Go to the Zenith repair site. This has been resolved in a lawsuit. Zenith will fix it free of charge through 7/1/2010. The shop just picked my up to replace the light engine free of charge. Call 1-800-228-1757, have your model number and serial number, and where you purchased it. Here's the neat thing-the question I asked is "have they fixed the problem with the light engine, or is it going to keep going bad?" If happens again (blue lines/spots) before 7/1/2010, they'll replace the TV with a new and different TV of equal value!
