Picture flashes for 1/2 second then is gone...sound continues

Westinghouse SK-32H240S Television - the picture just flashes for 1/2 second when turned on, then the screen goes dark and the sound continues fine. This happens regardless of the input, both cable and direct connection to DVD player.

    same tv same problem. less than 1 year old.

  • areoneoh Dec 30, 2008

    same. this problem needs fixing.

  • motzkoman Dec 31, 2008

    Sent it in on Warranty mid October, got a replacement Thanksgiving that was cracked, sent that back and still do NOT have a working replacement and they are closed until 1/5/09. Will not buy this brand again.

  • motzkoman Dec 31, 2008

    I should add that Westinghouse said it was not worth fixing...therefore the replacement route that is taking forever...

  • motzkoman Jan 28, 2009

    Latest update - Got the second replacement mid January and it works fine except for turning itself on every morning at 8 am. I did a reset to factory settings and verified the sleep timer is off and it still goes on. It may be related to the comcast cable hook-up and a sensitivity, so I figure I will put it on a power strip I can turn off...the repair/replacement hassle was way too much...

    I have the same problem. Just over a year old. The picture shifts form clarity to a fragmented/pixelated image, and then goes black. The sound continues.

I have a Westinghouse SK-32H240S 32" flat screen


First when tapping changes the picture you have somewhere a bad connection; in electrical board or wiring.
When the screen goes blank after a while means some capacitor is bad/old.

I think you chose a Westinghouse Lemon, go this site and read all of the negative reviews of this model;

http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/westinghouse-sk-32h240s/4852-6482_7-32429419-2.html?tag=userReviews;page

Here's just one of the reviews;"best chunk of aluminum i ever had the fortune to buy"by stevecox25 on June 11, 2009-->
"Horrible customer service on a worse television" by westinghousecrap on March 20, 2009 Pros: Good picture once it is properly adjusted.
Cons: Low quality audio, had the TV for 10.5 months and the picture went out, sent the TV at MY expense to TX, and I've been waiting for 2 months, and customer service can only say that there is a "delay". And they don't send a new TV, it's a rebuild.
Summary: Please don't waste your money on this TV, spend a little more on a different brand and save yourself the headaches I've had. I'll never purchase a Westinghouse product again. Customer service has been no help, and their answers are vague at best. Learn from my nightmare, NCAA march madness on a old 19" TV because my Westinghouse quit working 2 months ago and they still haven't replaced it.

I have a westinghouse tv model number SK-32H240S no picture


It seems that your unit has some sort of Video side, PSU fault, or a problem to the Video section that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Picture goes off sound stays on


Hi

Yes the problem has been solved. finally. The information on your web site was correct but the replacement board that I needed was no longer available. I ended up taking it to the local repair shop and he "worked on the board" that was messed up. Cost about the same as a new board would have, if I could have gotten one. Thanks for the great web site.

Has sound,picture only comes on for a couple seconds at start up.


This is a Backlight Bulb or Inverter (power supply for backlight) failure.
If in warranty, take it to service
You can try to order an Inverter, or if needed you can get a replacement bulb (not easily available)
