Color Fading on Zenith E44W46LCD

Our Zenith E44W46LCD tv is 4-5 years old. The light next to the green light (tv on) on the front panel has been changing from yellow to red for about the last 6-8 months. It has recently started to fade color (green hue-almost like watching black and white). What's wrong with it and is it something we can fix or is it better to replace the tv?

    I have the same problem even after replacing the lamp with the same exact part that was in there. My screen is heavily green tinted. I wish I could fix this I only had the TV for 3 years.

    That means the projection light bulb needs to be replaced. I haven't replaced mine yet but I am sure is an easy thing to do. My TV is doing the same thing with the lights on the front.

I have this TV. Lamp indicator came on and freaked us out so we shut the TV off until we could find a reasonably priced bulb. I bought a lamp (bulb) from discount-merchant (best price!) and we changed it out...easy enough process, however the "change lamp indicator" orange light remains on and the TV now has a lovely yellow spot in the middle of it. After arguing with my husband that he didn't install the lamp correctly, I have read for the past two days MANY of the same issue with this specific TV. We've had it 5 years in August so I guess that is about the life of this TV and a big apology to the hubby. :)

What causes the picture to have a green tint


there are 3 color cathode in your TV red,green,blue cathode.The red and blue cathode might not working in your set that is why you have a green screen. Open the back cover of your TV you can immediately see the 3 cathode lamp at the back. Clean the lamp first using a clean clothe. Power up you tv and see whether the 3 lamps are lit. If lamps do not light up,check the circuit board where this lamp is connected re-solder all the components in this lamp. There is also an individual screen adjustment for the lamps it is located at the front panel and labeled RGB screen...try this first and let me know how it goes..

Yellow circle


The huge yellow circle is either your blue filter is burnt out (very common in Zenith DLP) or you LCD cube is bad. I would bet it is the blue filter. Zeniths DLPs have 3 color filters one blue (a pinkish color), one green (a grayish brown)and one red (it is red). For the bulb indicator I would check and make sure your lamp is seated to the ballast correctly. Just take it out and put it back in.

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.
