I had the same problem...turned out it wasnt the TV at all. It was actually the wall socket. Seems I had to many things plugged into one wall supply. (i.e. xbox 360, wii, audio reciever, dvd player, vcr, etc...) after switching some other items to a different socket my TV works GREAT!! I hope your problem is this simple!

Hello,

there are so many reasons why your TV won't bring out sound. You need to troubleshoot first, in order to get to the root of the problem, before a solution can be proffered.

First, connect a DVD player to the TV, observe if there is going to be sound. If there is still no sound after connecting the DVD player to the TV, proceed to the next step. "The reason why I asked you to connect a DVD player to the TV is to confirm if the problem is simply not from the audio cord connected to the TV."

Second, get an headset, connect it to the earphone jack of the TV and observe if there is going to be sound. If there is no sound, then it is glaring now that your TV is having a defective sound card/IC that's why it is not bring out any sound. (Note that connecting an headset to your TV is optional because not all TV's has a space for headset). "The reason why I asked you to connect an headset to the TV is to also confirm if problem is not from the TV speaker. Though TV speaker problems are rare but sometimes, the TV speaker might be defective or the speaker wires may have loosed contact or cut into two, due to one reason or the other. But if the headset doesn't bring out any sound from the TV, then it is not so."

If none of the above seems not to be the cause of the problem, then the above troubleshooting has confirmed that the TV has got a defective sound card/ic. The sound IC/card of the TV has to be replaced for the TV to bring out sound again.

To be honest with you, replacing or fixing the sound card/ic of your TV requires the ability or experience to do so.

Now, if you are convinced you can fix or replace this yourself, please reply so that i can help you further. And make sure you troubleshoot first, before getting back to me.

Regards.

westinghouse 32 inch screen goes blank

I have a three year old Westinghouse 32 inch flat screen lcd ready TV. It would run very well then go blank. Most of the time you could turn the TV off for a short period of time and it would come back on and work fine. Some times for days and days and some times for minutes. It went blank yesterday and now even turning on and off it won't respond.

Usually on newer westinghouse tv's the only audio output on the tv is the headphone jack so you will need to buy a 3.5 mm stereo to rca converter and use that instead of the rca cables provided with the sound bar.

lcd hdtv screen freezing

The problem is a software bug in their tuner. The tuner defect lockup problem only happens for the DTV over the air channels.

Unfortunately Westinghouse is not admitting to it as it would cost them a lot of money for a recall. Westinghouse fixed the problem on newer TVs but decided to do nothing on the ones they already sold hoping the customer A) would not notice in their 12 month warranty period because they have cable, satellite, or analog over the air (old TV channels, not the new DTV digital ones), or B) or the customer would think they had an antenna problem as customer service was directed to tell them that when they called in for the problem, or C) customer service was also told to tell customers "that was normal operation for DTV to lock up" with the belief that some stupid customers would beleive it. D) the In the event the customer insisted that it was a bug they would then send a RMA number by email (very slowly 7+ days later) hoping the customer would just forget about it. Then when the TV was sent in they would then replace it with a newer 32 inch TV.

This is a great class action lawsuit waiting to happen. This buggy tuner is in several models with over 300,000 TVs sold with the problem. Anyone know a good class action lawyer?

Its probably a broken backlight inverter, it costs about $130 for a new 1, and thats if you install it yourself, which shouldn't be too hard You can probably find instructions online about how to do that (P.S. Check before buying and trying to install yourself.)

power up problems

I have a Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HDTV-Ready LCD TV purchased in December 2005. It has been great up util the last month. When I first turn it on, it come on and runs for anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes then shuts itself off. It may do this more than once. It then become very difficult to get it to power back up. When it does eventually come back on it runs great. Will this be an expensive repair? Should I start shopping for another TV as I foolishly did not purchase an extended warranty?

removing base from tv

how do i remove the base on my 32 lcd westinghouse tv so i can mount it to the wall on a bracket?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

I researched this problem on the net and found the solution. Someone on one of the posts said the base can be removed by taking out four screws - all from the back of the TV. One screw is the one closest to the power plug, the next screw is beside it, the remaining two screws are the corresponding screws on the opposite side of the base panel (still on the back of the TV). Once these screws are removed the base comes off including the mounting bolt and the rectangular shaped plastic panel. There are no electronics or any components inside the base panel, only the bolt and plastic base which are held on by the four aforementioned screws. It was very easy to remove!
