I changed the bulb on my Zenith Z44SZ80 and the TV picture is really dark and not bright like it used to be. The old bulb was 100w and the new one is 120w. I tried adjusting the brightness and contrast...


You should revisit the lamp by removing it and checking for any obstruction in the light path. When satistied that nothing is blocking the light path and if you still have low light levels I would contact the vendor and try to exchange your lamp for a new one. If the unit is still dim after installing a new, 2nd lamp, I would replace the ballast board assembly. I have a tip at which explains the problem, how to fix it and where to get the parts at the best price.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank You.

Press and HOLD the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV
Press and HOLD the MUTE button on the REMOTE
(hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen)

Zenith DLP-Projection tv 42"

Try this solution which I found on Fixya

This solution is for the zenith 56" DLP. Unplug the tv, either from the wall socket or the TV. While the TV is unplugged hold the power button on the TV for 40 seconds. This lets the excessive power drain from the TV. If this does not work call 1-800-243-0000. This is the number for their help line. This is the fix the tech gave me and it worked right away. Hope this helps and have a great day.
