The simplest problem would be the failure of the backlight.

In case you don't already know it, there is one, and they may or may not last forever.
Also, there is an extra power supply to produce the high voltage the lamp needs to fire that may have failed.

Sometimes, you can look at the screen from an angle to see if there is any sign of movement.
If you can see program material causing a change in the faint image, then you can be pretty sure it is one of the two problems mentioned.

I had this problem with these tv`s. The problem actually lies with the power supply inside the unit. Some of the units i`ve seen have 2 blown capacitors on the power supply (C7 and C6) replacing these works. On others, the capacitors as well as a few transistors (Q8 - Q1) are blown. But on all the sets i have seen with this problem, changing the above components restores full functionality to the system.

I have a line in the middle of my screen.what can I replace to fix this?


To be honest, you're not going to like this but... the simple answer is to replace the TV. You've got a short on the circuit board that controls the LCD display. You could replace the board, but for a 20" TV it's actually cheaper to buy a whole new TV. Hope it's under warranty!

I need a remote code for a westinghouse LCD TV, model LTV-20v4, with a MOTOROLA remote control


Hello, if the remote is a universal remote you will most likely need to input the Sony codes. Another option is to purchase an original remote at parts@wde.com, the price for the remote is $15 plus $5 shipping and handling.

My Westinghouse SK-32H640G LCD TV has picture but no sound. Its hooked up with HDMI cable, I've checked audio settings and TV speakers are on, and also have tried both HDMI ports on TV please help!


Hello, these are fairly new units as they have not been out in the market for that long. With that said I would recommend checkin if the audio is good using other inputs like the Tuner, Component (yPbPr) or simply RCA cables, if there is sound than mostlikely you will need to replace the main board. I would recommend to call Westinghouse customer care at 1800-701-0680 for further assistance.

I have sound but no picture a all on a Westinghouse LTV20v4. The menu does not come up.


Check for bad capacitors in the inverter board, it may have taken out the 8 transistors when the caps went open.

32" flat screen Westinghouse TV


Hello, it sounds like you need to replace the inverter board on this unit. I would recommend opening the unit from the back cover, get the part # for the inverter board (long green board normally running accross the edge of the TV) and go to www.shopjimmy.com, they should have it in stock and if not you can try www.invertercentral.com, they should also have it.
