LG REAR PROJECTION TV DARK SCREEN PROBLEM

I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH THIS SET. IT IS 4 YEARS OLD AND ON THE 3RD BULB. I HAVE HAD DARK VERTICLE LINES AND THEY GO AWAY AND COME BACK AS THEY PLEASE. LG HAS NO IDEA WHAT IS CAUSING THIS.
NOW THE WHOLE SCREEN IS DARK WITH A NEW BULB. EVEN AT NIGHT IN THE DARK IT IS STILL HARD TO SEE THE SCREEN.
NOW ON ONE SIDE OF THE SCREEN I HAVE ANOTHER VERTICLE LINE BUT IT IS LIGHTER AND NOT DARKER.
WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?
I KNOW I WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER LG ITEM. VERY POOR SERVICE.

Hello, I have a LG rear projection tv model number LG 52SZ8R-ZA that has recently stopped working at 100%. The screen appears alot duller as though the brightness has been turned right down. Is the problem...


Hello, You can get better prices for bulbs on the Internet. I went through this problem with my set.
Sometimes there is an upgrade in bulb Wattage on an individual basis by Model. What you may be having problems with is a system called a "Light Engine". This assembly has the power module and a spinning part called a "Light Wheel".
Your problem then can be from any of these devices. Your old bulb could have a dark spot (As normal light bulbs can develop), a weak power module, or a light wheel not spinning at the correct RPM for clarity.
You can take a chance and try a new bulb yourself or call for a Technician to give you either a "Convergence Set-up" or Evaluation and Repair estimate.
I learned about the insides of these TV's from the Front-Projectors and my own Rear-Projectors which had Warranty Recalls. So I have seen Messed-up and know what it looks like and somewhat about the causes and cures.

If you are getting a Convergence service, you may want to get the Estimate, then install a new bulb through the Internet, and then get it all set up fresh with the new bulb.

Hello, I have an LG lcd rear projection tv and parts of the screen are turning blue, do you think it's just the bulb or the light engine?


Hey there first of all your tv is a lcd rear projection set, this tv's don't have a light engine system, they use a optical block

whats happpening is that one of your lcd chips is burning out and this problem will start to get worst, to be honest with you it's very hard to purchase just the LCD chips, you need to buy the optical block to fix your set, also the bulb has nothing to do with the color the bulb just shoots out light.

please rate this solution!!!!!

The bulb you are buying is not the origianl one. The life of you bulb is too short, probably it was use before. Buy a original bulb and new.

Bottom right side of screen (about 4 inches high) has blue tint


I had the same problem with my 4 yr old Sony KDF60WF655 rear projection set, and I was fortunate to buy a 4 year extended warranty - because it was the "Optic Block", ($1300. -not incl labor), that was replaced to fix the problem. That part contains all new LCDs, & multiple Lens & some electronics. I had already got a new bulb (under warranty) a few weeks earlier, that I had not yet installed so the service guy did replace that as well. (This happened 3 weeks before my warranty ended).

He told me that he replaces hundreds of Sony Optic Blocks every year and that many Sony Rear Projection sets have automatic FACTORY extended warranties (up to 10 years), because of some known problems with the blue LCD panels. You might want to contact a SONY office & see if your set is covered.

ALSO - The tech checked my Service Codes & showed me the TV had been running for 10051 hours in about 4 years - on the Original bulb! He was quite surprised because he said the bulbs usually last about 5000 - 7000 hours. He also said it's good to replace them BEFORE they go bad, because they can sometimes burn out the amplifier that powers the bulb, (which is a seperate piece that attaches to the outside of the Optic Block). My TV is like new now.

Rear projection TV (LG 44SZ51): Horizontal dark band on upper screen field


The LG 44SZ21RB Have a problem with their light tunnel collasping due to the heat from the lamp. They are available as a spare part @ LG and would also require some silicon adhesive to bond it into the assembly. Very tedious job for any technican (2-3 hrs). Lg will not release parts to the general public only to an authorised LG agent.
