Question about Zenith E44W46LCD 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

TV does not respond to Remote

My Zenith E44W46LCD does not respond to the remote after a few clicks. The TV responds during start up and a few clicks (volume, on/off, ratio) after initial use of the remote. I can tell the remote's flickering infrared is working but the TV does not respond. To adjust the volume, ratio and on/off, I have to do it manually.

Any remedies you know of?

    Yes, I have the same exact problem myself, with the same tv, and it is very annoying. I have found no solutions yet

    Same problem, it works for a while and then stops. If you leave it on a long time, it starts working again. It's not the remote, I trained a learning remote with this one when I first bought the TV, and have a second universal remote that will also control the TV. All three fail to produce any response on the set.

    Same problem! It's obviously something lose inside, cause' when I tap the sides of the tv a few times it starts responding for a while

    yes my r40w46 has also stopped responding to the remote. The solution was put forth to resolder the sensor wire to the circuit board. Where would one find the sensor? What does it look like? I just repaired the Blue Convergence problem on this TV. And it works fine, except for the no responce to the remote.

    I have the same problem. What do I do to fix it?

    And here I thought it was just having too many remotes...



    I did find that it works after about 5 minutes. Basically works in different intervals. Very annoying.

Mine started doing the same, around the same time the bulb replacement light went off. After replacing the bulb (the bulb blew out eventually) the problem went away by itself. The aging bulb must have interfered with the IR light of the remote.

If you have tried all the codes for the tv, and none of them work, the tv might be too old to respond to the newer remotes. Check that the batteries are inserted properly into the remote.
Some older tvs are just not compatible with todays systems.

Problem with remotes for our zenith e44w46lcd tv


It could be that the main board or the remote reciever is bad on the TV. The best thing to do at this point is to have a technician verify which one is causing the issue. Otheriwise it would be an expensive gamble to replace both boards. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks..

TV does not respond to the remote control


I had this happen on mine after about 3 years. Luckily it was on extended warranty. At first the techs re-soldered the connections to the board for the IR sensor but the problem was still intermittent. The next time they replaced the mainboard and all is well - just like new.

TV does not respond to remote


Sounds like the sensor on the television has gone bad, since it works for the VCR. Try a universal remote that you can program the TV and VCR codes into and try it out. If it works for the VCR and TV then you know it's the remote, if the TV still isn't responding then your TV sensor is toast.

Tv does nit respond to remote


The problem is inside the TV, caused by a cold soldering on the circuit board where the infrared receiver cables are connected. Needs to be resoldered.

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

My tv will not turn on.


First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.
