    I have no screen display. It was working til last night. There is a red sensor light flashing and everytime I press the power button nothing happens...including the sound of the power when turned on. Hope this makes sense.

No picture sound ok
Note 1 a Raster is the name for a screen made of lines of brightness
Note 2, A Blank raster has no snow or picture, its just a lit up screen

Sound ok but no raster.
First increase tube's first anode voltage (knob on the loptx) to see if the screen is just too dark.
if after you have turned up the bottom knob on the loptx, there is still no brightness,check, for crt heaters, and EHT 25kv and focus voltage (2kv) and A1's/Screen/G2 voltage is 300-600v.
and check for field timebase (height), the next thing to check is the sandcastle pulse.
If it's present, colour decoder chip is probably faulty or lacks supply from the LT regulators.

NO LINE DRIVE If it's absent,check the line driver, locate the loptr(big and usually has heat sink).
follow the print from the base back to the driver stage , where you will usually find a tiny transformer with 4/5 pins
resolder it, even if it looks good,then with power on, check for voltage on all its pins, 2 should have LT(12v to 32v) or HT (90v to 150v), if not there follow the print back and look for either a transistor(linedrivetr), or the feed voltage line (maybe regulated),
If the voltage is ok on two of the driver transformer(drvtx) legs, the look from the base of the driver transistor to locate the timebase chip
and check round its pins for a 12v supply line, if there ,replace the timebase generator chip

Method of testing line drive, remove line output transistor, and connect a normal red led, across the B/E (longest leg to base), and when you power up the led should lite up.


Trace the pcb back from the BASE leg to find the line driver stage,
Its usually a very small transformer (4/5 legs) and a transistor connected to it,
The driver transformer legs(pins) will be two with voltage and two without
The two with power will either be about HT level (110v=145v) or about LT level(25v)
If not then trace back and look for a biggish 3w resistor.
screen goes black,with sound - linedrv.jpg
If the voltages are correct the look for line pulses from the Timebase oscillator chip to the base (some overvolts protection circuits remove pulses if ht is too high).
If the voltage is low and the feed resistor is getting hot then check the base of the driver transistor if its HI over 0.5V then its being turned on by the timebase oscillator chip (protection ?)
If the voltage is zero check the feed resistor
If all seems normal check that 12v is getting to the timebase oscillator chip (IC) (12v regulator?)
Method of testing line drive, remove line output transistor, and connect a normal red led, across the B/E (longest leg to base), and when you power up the led should lite up.

Hope it may help you;

No picture, sound ok


I have a similar issue. Sometimes the entire screen goes black and sometimes only one-half - either the top or bottom half goes black. The only solution we have found is to gently tap the TV (usually the front side) and the picture will come back for awhile. It almost seems heat related as it only goes out after the first 10 minutes of use. There must be a fix to this.

Westinghouse LCM22W2 shows a display then turns off after half a second


I have the same problem and have traced it down to a potential power supply issue.  I bought mine at Best Buy in '06 and was told today that they will test the power supply for free.  It may range from $50.00 to $100.00 depending on where you can get it.  This does not include labor for those not qualified to work with electronics.  Hope this helps you.

Top half of screen blacks out


Today, after speaking to the Sansui Manufacturer representative from Japan. He stated that all you need to do is to turn off the closed caption from the TV remote and not the DVR remote. Black screen can occur at the top half or the bottom half of the screen depending on how it was originally setup during installation. Try this and hopefully this fixes the problem.
