Question about Zenith D52WLCD 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Blue haze on screen

There is a blue haze on the screen that appears after the tv is turned on.  It takes on different shapes and covers most of the screen. I heard this is something to do with the light engine and plastic mounts.  How can I fix this?

Re: Blue haze on screen

This is chronic problem with this model and is a failure within the LCD optic block (light engine). These light engines are available in rebuilt only and cost for the part alone is over 500.00. Requires a qualified service professional to replace.

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.

Older RCA Projection screen, Blue picture!

take the front speaker cover off, then remove the four screws on the cover behind it. you will see a 2"x2" black thing with 6 controls on it 3 on top three on bottom, your looking for "screen". they should also be marked r g and b, try turning the blue down (counterclockwise). it may help a little and prolong the life of your tv

Blue screen

I would look for something real simple here. The problem appears to be in your component cables (I would suspect one being bad or connected to a wrong jack). If they are connected properly, try moving them a bit to see if the blue haze comes and goes or try different cables.
