Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

Hello, My Westinghouse ltv32w1 LCD TV is only 2 years old. Sound is fine, picture is not so good: Initially when TV goes on picture is okay, then after 30 minutes, the image breaks up into verticlal lines and is unviewable. Other times, the color gets distored. There are "hot spots". Bright colors, for example flames in a fire place, become pixelated and lose resolution. Then people turn green and purple. Thank you, Kathleen Fisher

    My posting is listed under projection TV and of course it is LCD.



    I have 4 emails saying 4 experts have made comments, but only one solution is showing.



    How does this work?

    My last solution is listed under the category of projection tv, my tv is LCD. I have no further details to add to my problem, but would like to know the approximate cost for the replacement part and whether it can be done by me.

Hi,
Symptoms of tv shows problem in LCD Controller board and hopefully fault can be fixed by replacing LCD Controller board.
Board can be purchased from Part Store on $74.22 only.
It would be better to get service of qualified tech person for board replacement.
Regards,

The behavior from your LCD means that there could be a power supply failure starting to developed due to leaky or dry capacitors.
The power supply might not be available anymore since is not being manufactured for this LCD model.
Click here to see if these guys can find you a power supply.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Power supplies fail in about 95% of the time.

    The cost for the repair will vary. I would suggest to contact your local service repair center and ask them how much it will cost you to have it fix.

    There are repair service techs that could fix the power supply for around $100.00

Verticle lines are most likely a bad tube or convergence problem. You will not be able to fix this your self . I suspect a bad convergence ic

    I suspect a bad convergence ic cost for parts are around 30$ service
    charge around 150$ to fix. At least know when you call a service person you
    will have

    a good understanding of problem.good luck.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Sep 17, 2008

    Try a hard reset a couple of times and see if that helps. If not, you will need an expert tech to look at it.



    Reset is best done by disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet
    for 4 hours; then power up. Do it twice. Then let me know - - or
    all in a repair expert.



    It is not an adjustment; it is a malfunction

  • dewan nafees ahmed Sep 17, 2008

    it can also be a malfunction of either the vertical deflection system or the auto format switching circuits.

I have the same problem. It happened to me 2 days after the warranty expired. I took it to the repair shop and they told me the tuner went in it.(BTW $400 to repair, I did not do it) I have yet to get a TV picture through it, but can run a DVD through it using the Pr etc. component inputs... Any information you have gotten might be helpful to me too. Good Luck.. Westinghouse is off my list of products to buy I know that.
