Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Slight picture issue under specific conditions.

Ok, i run my computer off of it. I happen to have alot of discs that are mpeg2's and for some reason with them if i try running them off my computer the figure outlines within images kind of flake out if they're moving too fast. Not sure if brightness of the images are a factor as well. I'm pretty sure my current connection types SVGA. I'm wondering if putting a better connection option in my pc would help this problem. Or if reading that format from disc just doesn't work so well. I've no issues with DVD's. Just the mpeg2 disc's so i'm just lost and hoping theres a solution cause some of my discs kind of require playing on dvd-rom in order to play through and i'd reall like to be able to get a clear image consistantly. Thanks for any input.

Re: Slight picture issue under specific conditions.

In any case, this is not a problem with your TV. You see regular DVD's ok, so the TV itself is fine, and your post is a little out of place in this product page. What I would suggest is that you take the mpeg2's to a friend with a different PC rig, and compare results. It could be your graphics card, and also the software/codecs you use, even the encoding quality of the discs. Try one of the Video coding forums. In general, LCDs aren't as good as standard CRTs when it comes to moving images, I guess you're seing that enhanced through that file format, or in combination with the software you're using. Good luck

I got no picture but the sund is ok.It's a

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.5_24_2012_10_47_33_pm.jpg5_24_2012_10_47_54_pm.jpg

There may be an issue with "cold" solder joints on the power supply board, or there may be a failing component on that board as well.

Some things to look for also are bad solder joints particularly on the fuses of the inverter board or boards depending on production run. Those are going to be rectangular items marked with "8A" on them near where the multiwire connector attaches to that board under the plastic cover. As well as any bulging electrolytic capacitors. Since there usually more than one in parallel if one shows as bad- replace them all
A can of cold shot help locate the specific area or component of the 24 volt section of the power supply that is the issue.

37" Philips LCD sound but no picture

Check the inverter on the sides of the TV. This sounds like the inverter is going bad and that's the reason why you have sound but not picture.

Power won't stay on

hello. you are not alone, this is a common problem with alot of new lcd and plasma tv's since they operate with high internal voltages the circuts have built in protection. any slight power fualt or short in the circut will cuase a sos or shutdown. may be a number of different reasons or even a shorted fuse.
it needs to be checked you have a power issue.
some models if there is a blinking led the number of blinks indicates the fualty area.
your tv needs service.

hope this helps

Reuben. On the Power Supply PCB marked QPWB11326-1B-4 you'll find a Component marked,
TH701 just above the Fuse! Remove this component and bridge it out!
This should solve your problem! Contact me on

Samsung lcd tv no picture just sound

While this is not a permanent solution, we've fond it helps... We have a Samsung LCD that does not turn on when there is too much humidity in the room. This only happens in the summer when it gets really humid. We moved our dehumidifier next to it, let it run for around 15 minutes and the TV turned on again, no problem. Lately, it's been raining alot so it's very humid. We've gotten into the habit of leaving our dehumidifier on through the night on low and we've had not issues turning on the tv since then. This is a hastle but it's either that or buying a new tv.

New Logik TV Standbymode

If you're relying on cheap cables - like the ones that are usually tossed in with electronics - you could be running into a signal issue because they aren't shielded and they lose alot of signal due to leakage.

You don't have to overpay for Monster cables, mind you, but cables that are shielded - in gold is even better - should help improve your signal.

Panasonic tv TC-26LX60 PICTURE PROBLEM

if this is under warranty still, i would take it to a service center or rma it to panasonic.. if it is not under warranty, you can try the following.

1) try a different video source and verify the problem is happening on all video sources and modes.

2.a) if the problem is not happening in all modes, remove and replace the cable that is causing the issue. if this doesn't remedy the problem, the controller for that particular input is going out

2.b) if the problem is happening in all modes, you can open the case and carefully disconnect and clean (de-oxit or rid-ox) the hirose style connectors on the back of the display panel.

3) disconnect and clean all ribbon cables around the display panel

this sounds like either the connectors are not performing adequately or are loose, the top ribbon is acting up for some reason, or the graphic controller is going out.

Picture problems


The pixelation is probably caused by MPEG2 compression on the DVD and Virgin media video streams, the blur is probably caused becasue you are displaying a standard definition signal on a high definition TV.

However if a high-def source still has these problems then you may have a faulty TV, your best bet is too hook up a high-def source such as a HD/Blu-ray player or PS3/360 games console.

Should a high-def source look ok, then you may have some look changing the display settings on the TV to try and improve picture sharpness and color balance.
