Question about Westinghouse TX-42F430S Television

Won't power up past the W logo.

My TX-42F430S has power and it displays the W logo after you connect the power but then the light on the front stays amber and it won't power on past that. Any ideas?

    It was stuck in Standby mode. I found a lot of great infomation over at avsforum.com for this set. It is a known problem. I was just able to fix it by upgrading (or downgrading the firmware). It comes up now but it apears the hdmi inputs are not working.

    After reseting the set and powering on the hdmi device after the tv came back up the HDMI ports work again!



    All is good now.

The unit can be reset by pressing and holding the power button on the TV for 10 sec
perhaps that can reset the system

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .
