Zenith E44W46LCD SCREEN GOING DARK

My screen is getting darker. Think it may be the lamp. Does the lamp go out all at once or does it just get dimmer first. Don't want to buy new lamp if it wont fix problem. Thanks

    I bought the TV in 2005. The orange warning light came on about 1 year ago. But I hadn't noticed it was getting darker till a few weeks ago. So I have been expecting it to go out anytime. But I thought it would just burn out like a regular lamp and go out all at once. Not just get dimmer.



    I even ordered the lamp replacement right after I bought the TV knowing it would go out one day. The bad thing is when I pulled the lamp replacement out, it was the wrong lamp. Paper work had right part number, but sticker on lamp box was different. It was a round lamp instead of rectanglar. It's for the DLP, not the LCD. Bought off web and company is now a computor shop. So out of luck on exchange.



    Just wanted to make sure it could dim instead of a complete burn out before I spend more money on it. At least the lamp is now over $100 less than I paid two years ago.



    Thanks, I think I will order a new lamp now that I know it could be that.

The lamp will dim as it ages and will do so quicker as it approaches end of life.  Do you know how many hours the lamp has been used.  How old is the TV?

SOURCE: Zenith E44W46LCD 44 in. Rear Projection (Wont Turn on)

I bought an open box unit at Best Buy, it had no remote or manual. Go to http://www.zenithservice.com/, click on owner's manuals, answer the 4 questions using drop down menus and then you can download an owner's manual and save it to your computer/burn it to a CD/print it out. If you choose to print it out, beware, the manual is 60 pages. One of the 4 questions they ask is "Product", choose Projection TV, not LCD TV. The 4th question is "Model Number", mine is E44W46LCD, is guess everyone's here is the same, duh.
For the remote, I looked in the phone book for an authorized Zenith TV repair company. I called them and gave the model number and paid over the phone. I had the remote shipped to my home address. The total including tax and shipping was $50. The remote they sent is a large Zenith mulit-function #6710v00102k. I don't know if that is the remote that would have came with the TV, it worked without having to program it first. It can control TV/VCR/Cable/DVD/Sat. I t has controls for 6 inputs, SAP, mute, Surf, Video, Picture in Picture, Ratio (16:9, 4:3, Zoom, etc), CC, Freeze, Menu, and controls for DVD and VCR (rewind, play, etc). If you can't find a place in your area to get the remote, Email me at gregg@hillscabinet.com and I'll look up where I got mine from. It came from Palm Desert, CA.
I don't know about your TV not coming on, is it plugged in? If it is, that's about all I've got. Gregg

SOURCE: PICTURE IS GETTING DARKER AND DARKER

Hi,
Without more information, assuming its a Halide lamp, and the viewing angle of the TV hasn't also got worse I would say yes and quickly, if the image has degraded badly the lamp is close to failure which could cause further damage.
Although only a guide as some lamps last longer than others you should always keep an eye on the lamp hour counter The manual should tell you how long to expect from a lamp.

SOURCE: Zenith E44W46LCD Lamp Access Door Location

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.

I have a zenith e44w46lcd tv, while watching it, it turned off and now will not turn back on again. Green light flashes for a bit then goes back to red. Also lamp light is on orange. Do I need to replace...


More then likely your lamp is faulty, you can replace this lamp urself, but on zenith models the lamp comes as a bulb only, you will have to change the lamp and use your original housing. Also lamp timer will have to be reset. The only reason you might need a repair man is to go into factory mode and reset lamp timer. But if you are mechnically incline you can swap the lamps yourself..

My tv also has a green tint..


Is the T.V old, or second hand? Or does the picture look dimmer then you think it should be? If so then it could be that the lamp in the projector is coming to the end if its life. The lamps in projector tend to make the image on screen a greenish colour along with a dimmer look once it needs changing. It dosent just pack in though, it will stay like that for a while, but wont get any better. There could be a way of seeing how many hours the lamp has got left before being replaced on the T.Vs menu screen?

I changed the LCD lamp, but there is still a yellow haze.


The yellow haze is the result of the blue polarizer burnt-in, you will find it sitting in front of the dlp chip.

Lamp reset


The correct way to reset the lamp timer on that unit is to hold the menu key on the remote and push the enter key on the front of the TV at the same time. Hold them (it's about 9 or 10 seconds) and then a screen comes up asking if you would like to reset the lamp timer. That will reset the time but if your problem is a dark picture that's probably not going to fix that.
