If your model number is E44W46LCD Rear Projection , yes this will should fix your problem and you can do it yourself. Just be careful with the LCD cube that is beside you color filters, it is very fragile and hard to get.

Our Panasonic Rear Projection 65' TV all of a sudden started having color problems. The color seems to be greenish with a line going through it. Any help would be greatly appreciated,


Is this a rear projection DLP LCD TV ? If you have a light engine in it , it sounds like it is going. I have a 60 inch Zenith that had a Blue Haze that kept growing and growing, tuned out to be the light engine was failing which after all was said and done it was a $3000 repair. Lucky I had it done under warranty.

Purple/white haze spot


Go to the Zenith repair site. This has been resolved in a lawsuit. Zenith will fix it free of charge through 7/1/2010. The shop just picked my up to replace the light engine free of charge. Call 1-800-228-1757, have your model number and serial number, and where you purchased it. Here's the neat thing-the question I asked is "have they fixed the problem with the light engine, or is it going to keep going bad?" If happens again (blue lines/spots) before 7/1/2010, they'll replace the TV with a new and different TV of equal value!

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.

Yellow haze


Hi...the yellow haze is probably the blue filter is burnt and needs replaced. This is very common in Zeniths. There are 3 color filters in the Zeniths blue (pinkish in color), green (grayish in color) and the red (it is red). The #1 problem in this TV is the blue filter is burnt and it is an easy fix. It could also be the LCD cube is bad. I would try the blue filter replacement first. It will probably do the trick.

The blue filter is burnt out. A very common problem in Zenith DLPs. There are 3 color filters, 1 blue (a pinkish color), 1 green (a grayish brown) and 1 red (it is red) they give you your colors for you picture. This is a simple fix.

Growing blue haze on our picture screen.


This is a bad problem with the light engine caused by overheating usually due to reduced airflow from dirty air filters.
My recommendation is to push your warranty company to replace this subpar model with a different one. There are too many instances of repaired models having a reoccurance of this same problem.

The blue line you are seeing is a product of one or two possibilities. The LCD panel which provides the blue imagery, which by the way is made by SONY Electronics, is defective. The LCD panel, in the optic engine (made by Ricoh) is basically loosing partial horizontal data, or the blue color filter has overheated and is becoming discolored, causing the loss of correct deflection through the optic prism. There are two ways to approach this. LG can offer some concessions and get you squared away, or provide the part, and you would be responsible for the service labor involved. Either way it can happen. The first thing I have to suggest to anyone purchasing a LCD or DLP projection TV is REMEMBER to keep an eye on the air intake filters. LG / Zenith products have one in the rear of the set, and 1 on the bottom of the unit. Reduced air flow through these units cause these "video deflection" issues. Overheating plainly affects these sets. I personally wouldn't own one, no matter who made it.
