Question about Westinghouse Televison & Video

Open Question

Is Westinghouse 32" LCD sk-32h635s firmware available?

I also have a smaller Westinghouse that I successfully upgraded the firmware on and would like to do the same to this TV. There's a USB service port but the Westinghouse site doesn't seem to have an upgrade available.

If you are using the television with a cable box try looking a format button the the cable boxs remote to change aspect of the pictue. Also try unpluging the unit from the AC outlet for at least two minutes to reset the unit.

SOURCE: Westinghouse 32" LCD TV model SK-32H240S. When the

the high pitched noise is probably coming from a transformer in the unit, which leads me to believe that there's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Starts randemly flipping through tuner channels and won't stop


While it is stable, enter ''menu'' and check ''channels'' menu. Make sure (if you have no antenna) that it is set for ''Cable'' or ''Satellite''.

If problem continues, try unplugging for a _full_ 24 hours, and then do the above.

Ps... If you _do_ have an antenna, set it for ''antenna'' and then select ''scan for channels.'' Do not interrupt process. Allow it to finish on it's own.

What kind of cords do I need in order to hook up my vcr & dvd player?


You will need to consult your manuals, or look at the hookup panels on each type of equipment.

RCA Cables will probably be used between the VCR and TV, and they may also be used for the DVD player.

All you need to do is determine what cables will be used based upon what the appliance has to offer, and then procure them and hook the system up. My TV currently uses all three types.

Picture for about 30 seconds but has sound. TW-5592W82003990


I would first take a look at the screen with set on in a very dark room with a flashlight---do you see a very faint image or picture? That would indicate a back light issue-----Good luck getting a board, I hear the company is again out of business.

It is a 42" Westinghouse SK32H520S and it worked


It is probably a poor connection through the coax. I would replace the coax and that may resolve the issue.

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)
