How to solve a blue picture in my lg model Ru-60sz30 rear proyection?

I have an LG RU-60SZ30 LCD rear projection TV. The unit is 2 years old, lamp indicator and temp indicator lights do not come on during operation, but it has developed a blueing effect on the picture.
It first started in a small portion in one of the corners and has progressively invaded the rest of the picture. It's not to bad when first turned on but gets worse. Menu options do not allow me to work on the convergance.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had the same problem and "solution #1" is correct. LG is aware of their manufacturers defect and after about 3-4 weeks of haggling with their customer service department they finally agreed to take care of the charges, which were several hundred dollars.

Here is in laymans terms what the problem is. The blue film from the RGB on the input is close to a heat source and over time the heat source burns through the filter and washes out the blue lead. I know that was a lousy explanation, but that is what it is. I had mine replaced 2 months ago. Supposed to be a permanent fix. (extra filter put in.) When it is replaced, they replace the complete apparatus, all three colors, light, and mirror.

I have a tv lg ru-60sz30 with yellow spots on the image. I guess it's the optical block

yes the yellow spots mean its a optical block problem. in your case it is the yellow LCD panel inside the optical block. this is not a diy fix you need special tools to realign the panel. sorry for the bad news.

You need a new bulb. It's easy to install. Remove the lower panel. Remove the 2 screws that hold the buld casing. Remove the bulb and replace with a new one. Replace the screws then the lower panel.

This will save you about $300 in so called labor.

Won't turn on with LG RU-52SZ61D 52 in. Rear Projection HDTV

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.

Blue on bottom of screen

It is not the bulb it is the blue polarizer lens in the engine. LG has made it available and an LG authorized service center can probably replace it for you, although many are just replacing engines which will be VERY expensive. Good Luck

We have had our RU-60SZ30 for almost 3 years. After 13 months it did the same thing, LG covered the cost of the part,($3000.00) according to their certified repair center, but they charged us $500.00 for labor. Now today, 15 months later it is doing it again. I just got off the phone with LG and they say "too bad, you're out of warranty" So my TV that I paid $4000.00 for, has gone out twice in less than 36 months and LG says, "Oh well" After searching the web I found a law firm in New York that looks like they are putting together a class action suit regarding our model. Go to WWW.ZLK.COM/ZENITHTV.HTML and fill in the questionaire.
