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

1 Answer

Do I need a new bulb?

The color has gone bad on my TV. It is mostly red and black at this point with not much other color. Is this the kind of thing a new bulb will fix or is it a bigger (ie. more expensive) issue?

    I will probably opt not to fix this and just get a new flatscreen instead. Thanks for your help.

It sounds like a more major issue than just a lamp because a lamp is either lit, or not lit. On that set it sounds like either main p.c.b. or lcd drive p.c.b. Both of which cost 200.00-400.00 plus shipping and labor to install. Good luck on this, Russmann.

    It never hurts to have someone physically look at the set to see if it is indeed something minor like loose solder connections on a board. We know your tv wasn't cheap to begin with. I just hate to see a good unit hit the dumpster. Thank you,Russmann.

Phililips 50 dlp does nothing but the sound. then the red light comes on. changed the bulb but it does the same thing. what is the next step.

Hello, it sounds like one of the cooling fans has stopped in it, sometimes the get clogged up with dust so bad they can't turn causing the set to go into shutdown or a fan has gone bad. try cleaning the fans, bur DO NOT USE CANNED OR COMPRESSED AIR!, use a vacuum and a small paint brush to clean them out. The other thing is listen for a squealing sound, if the color wheel is going bad the usually squeal a bit, but if the picture is normal looking for the time it's on, that shouldn't be the problem.....tks

Red light flashing screen is green turn off itself

your color wheel/ color main bored has gone bad (red flashing indictating one of 3 things depending on flashing. no power to main board. or to much power/bad board on one of the color boards) or you just need to replace the bulb in it. i doubt its a bulb issue bc you do see a greenness to it at first. but *** will auto shut down till the board is fixed. sorry for the bad news but this is your solution. . if you can tell me what model the tv is i cna find out exactly what it is and how many flashes.

My samsung hcn4226wxixaa screen is yellow i do not know what happened any suggestions???

one or two of your color guns have gone bad, or the circut that drives the has. There are three guns, red, green and blue. you need all three to produce all the colors, including white and black. in most cases this is not a cost effective repair, unless you have an extended warranty. if it is a sears device, or you bought it from them, they will sell you a warranty to for 200 dollars and then you can get it fixed. you might want to consider getting a new tv

Spots on picture screen,color not correct

the picture tube has three color production units (bulbs) red, yellow and blue.....since these three colors can be combined to produce almost any color. as you have specified the red bulb might have damaged due to one of the following reasons.
1.continuous usage
2. keeping your tv in standby mode for a prolonged time.
the only thing you can do is call a technician and get your damaged part replaced.
remember please do not try to disassemble the unit yourself.

Screen hazzy and issue with blue convergence

bad convergence would cause show to look as if it was supposed to be a 3-d movie, if a bulb was going out then people would look purple blue -green,or some other off color, so likely the green bulb is going out from the color of the people you described.
