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

1 Answer

Optical eye I have a Zenith TV model E44W46LCD recently my volume control stopped working on my remote. I replaced the remote and had the same problem. Had the local cable company come out to see what the problem was and I was told it was the optical eye on the TV. I am unsuccessful in finding any info about the "optical eye" anywhere on the web. I am wondering if you can help.

LOL, optical eye? OK, that’s the problem, there is no such part. However, you did not say if any other buttons were working on your remote, ie ch up and down, input, power on and off, ect. If so, it will not be your remote. If you the volume is not working, check you menu setup, under the audio setup.

If no remote functions are work, you can try the inferred Receiver. Its only about 20.00 to replace and can be found at most part stores. Cheaper if you change only the IR block itself.

My zenith lcd tv has lost its blue tint. most


the light polarizer on the blue lcd panel is fried due to excesive dust and heat, and therefore need to be replaced. unfortunately, zenith may not sell individual parts of the optical engine, so you'll have to replace the whole optical engine.

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..

E44w46lcd zenith orange light


If you are in the service menu (by holding down "Enter" on the TV and "Mute" on the remote simultaneously for about 5 seconds) - use the right arrow on the remote to reset the lamp time, and then hit the round button on the remote - the one between the arrows that has a "bulls eye" on it. That did it for me.

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.

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
