Looks like you have a bad optical engine, there are some models that had a recall (manufacturer will cover)you sould call manufacturers customers service or warranty department to get more info on your model.

Zenith 44" LCD TV


The yellow spot is due to the BLUE LCD and/or lens assy cracked, reason, to much HEAT! The blue is the darkest color and hold the most heat, so it goes first, always! In some cases it’s only the lens, however most of the time LCD is damage to. Parts are available, however install and alignment is timely. Quick fix is the complete light engine, which for model# E44W46LCD is part# 3141VSN916C, which customer cost is $1,449.27, wholesale for about $1,065.21. Rebuilt, if you can find it around 850.00 to 950.00. However the rebuilt does not always look as good as factory. My advice, TRASH set. This part will fail again in about 3 to 4 years, unless you watch a lot of white video. Remember, on a black or dark picture, all three LCD are blocking 100% of the light, causing extreme heat within the light engine. It’s a bad design.

BRIGTHNESS TO LOW


Light in wrong, however I wouldn't waste the money on this unit. Light engine will fail in 3 to 4 years and show a yellow spot at first.

(ie past post)

Yellow haze in center of screen


Typically caused by a defective light engine. Part is over $1000 last time I checked on it. Could also be caused by a bad "digital board". I've seen this symptom more than once on this set.
