Question about Westinghouse SK-32H240S Television

Open Question

Picture Flickering I have a Westinghouse LDC Television (SK-32H240S). My service is provided by AT&T U-verse. I am having a problem with my picture flickering so badly that it can not be watched. At times it flickers and the screen goes black. The DVR records the shows fine, even if the screen is flickering.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. TV WAS FINE UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO. OF COURSE ITS OUT OF WARRANTY. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ, AND BEEN TOLD, IT IS THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE UNIT. IT IS DEFECTIVE, OR IT OVERHEATS AND TRIES TO SHUT DOWN. A LAW SUIT IS IN PROGRESS AGAINST WESTINGHOUSE TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER. KINDA REMINDS ME OF THE XBOX 360'S WHEN THEY CAME OUT. ALL YOU CAN DO IS TAKE IT IN FOR SERVICE. OR, YOU CAN KEEP TURNING IT ON AND OFF, LIKE I DO. I HAVE HAD THIS TV ON ALL NIGHT BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEMS. AS SOON AS I START CHANGING STATIONS, OUT IT GOES. GOOD LUCK. WESTINGHOUSE WILL NOT EVEN EMAIL ME. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONTACT THEM. I HAVE HEARD FROM THE LAW FIRM IN CALIFORNIA THAT IS GOING AFTER THEM. GO ONLINE, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE.

Hello, it seems like your LIPS board has gone out. This board has two parts to it, one is the power side which is still working (you still have power and sound), and the second part is the inverter side. This side of the board is responsible for powering on and off the backlight. When this goes out your unit is still functional with the exception that you cannot see the screen. The repair is easy if you are at least a bit technical. You will need to contact Westinghouse at 1800-701-0680 to order the LIPS board, once you have that you will need to open the unit, the LIPS board is immediately visible, you remove the part and replace it with the new one and your TV is now functional. You can send me a quick email at westytech@wde.com if you need any sort of assistance. Please rate my help on this site.

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.

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.

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)
