Television wont turn on and has flashing white light

Instead of the usual green or orange ready light the Ltv-30w2 television keeps flashing a white light and wont turn on or display anything. It's hooked up to cable tv and a computer. It did this once before and somehow corrected itself. Not sure how. hoping to figure out a way to correct it incase it doesn't self correct this time.

    No, I tried that. I unplugged the tv,unhooked the various cables from the computer and cable and let it set for an hour. When I plugged it back in, it still was flashing the status light in a white color instead of the blue steady on or the orange/red steady standby/off. I'm currently letting it stay off and unplugged overnight and hoping for a second miracle in which it fixes itself again. Wish me luck and thanks for trying.

    Woot! Miracle number 2. I plugged it back in and it was still flashing white but this time I left it plugged in and an hour later it went totally blank as if it were unplugged. I turned it on with the remote and it started working fine again. I have no idea why this works but I'm not complaining... til it happens again. =(

    This sounds like firmware is bad or something loose inside. Glad your unit works but it could go out again since no real fix was done. Good luck.

Westinghouse 42" TV, model TX-42F430S, will not turn on. Orange light in front appears rather than the blue one.

There is a defective electrolytic capacitor (470MF/16V) on the main board that went bad, it will causes intermittent, slow, or not power up, the location number of the cap is not marked on the board, please see the attached photo to locate it.

Does it look like this?

You may have LCD controller board overheating problem (the pictures show the board with shield removed)
Try cooling it with small fan blowing at the vents.

Blue light goes to Orange blinking no sound no picture Screen on


Okay, if the screen is white! First, take apart and check the ribbon like cable that goes from your signal board (where you inputs are plugged in) to the lcd controller (under a small metal plate feed the lcd screen), see if loose and or reset! Secondly you either have a bad signal board or lcd controller!
