Question about Westinghouse LTV32W6HD 32 in. LCD Television

4 Answers

Messed up video?

On my television, the video suddenly stopped coming in properly.
I initially thought it was due to the Directv receiver because the picture for the Xbox comes in perfectly. 
Upon further inspection, Anything that I plug into theports on the side of the tv with the RCA, S-video, and Coax inputs has this problem with the picture. The Xbox is plugged in using component cables on the other side and, as I said, works perfectly. The audio also still works fine on each side. 
The video is generally completely scrambled, with different shades of gray lines running across the screen.

Unplug the whole unit for half an hour.also unplug each and every wire connected externally to each and every device.then after half an hour again connect the wires proper in proper jacks and sockets check out tight and firmly connected.then ON the device.and check out it should work properly. if still the same error presists the video socket where the cable is connected is either faulty or the cable itself is faulty.before getting the video jack repaired first replace the cable and check .

Check the place where you plug in the video input and make sure that does not move if anything is plugged into it. Then check the cords you use and try switching them out. If it is still messed up, you will need to check the connection inside the tv to make sure it is proper.

The signal board , where you have video connectors is faulty, unless all your cables are defective.

    First check all cables, and test xbox, that youknow is fine, on RCA.

    If the problem is the receiver, check audio output settings on the receiver, I think you have done this already.

    Unplug the TV for a while, try first ten minutes then several hours. draining power from the device you reset teh eeprom and get rid of static charges on the circuits. You must be lucky if it starts.

    If it does not start it is probably a faulty board.

    Regarding the board, I have got some bad news here, the signal or I/O board is a small board that carrys video connector, in your model the I/O is integrated on main board.
    This is the part
    If the problem is the board, the only alternatives are replacing the board, or convincing a technician to find the faulty component and replace it.
    This can be done following the instructions on the service manual, there are troubleshooting diagrams that show you how to find the faulty component.
    At a glance a technician will check if there is any blown capacitor or resistor. If there is a burned area on the board, that means there had been a short or a component had blown.
    You can check if they have the service manual here.

    You can call a technician, validate your warranty, or purchase a warranty extension by calling the number listed on the owner manual.

How do i hook my direct tv to the philips tv

This is what you'll need to do this:
  • Your DirecTV receiver, DirecTV access card, and your DirecTV satellite dish.

Step 1: You need to write down the serial number that is on your DirecTV access card onto a piece of paper that you will need for future reference. You'll need the number to activate your service with the DirecTV company. Now take your access card and insert it into your box, there is a slot either on the back or front side in which the card with enter.
Step 2: Plug the cable line that is coming from your satellite dish into the "Satellite In" plug on the back of your receiver box.
Step 3: Look for the "Out to TV" port on the back of your receiver, and use the proper cable, which should come with it, to plug it from the receiver into the proper port in the back of your TV.
Step 4: Power up the receiver and your TV (after plugging in the power cable and all) and tune into either channel 3 or 4, depending on where you live.
Step 4.5: You may be prompted to plug in a phone line, in which case you would need to plug in a phone cable into the back of the receiver, but this is only required as a one time thing, you may unplug it after activating your account.
Step 5: Once everything is set up (which it should be at this step), call DirecTV at 1-800-531-5000 to activate your access card, and you will need to use the serial code you copied down from it.
Step 6: After your access card is activated, enjoy watching on DirecTV!

Watching either tv or pre-recorded show and screen freezes for several seconds. At times the receiver boots from beginning which seems to take forever. Something obviously messed up. When frozen, no...

Your TV overheated probably due to condensation on the circuit. Keep the TV on as long as you can to drive off moisture. Or always leave it on standby to avoid condensation.

Philips DSR708 DirecTV DVR hangs up after power up

Is this a new issue that has shown up on the receiver? If so then you might have a bad hard drive in the receiver causing it to hang on boot up. Also these units require two inputs from the satellite antenna so that could be another possibility.

My dvr says it's at 43% capacity regardless of new recordings, or anything deleted

Probably just a glitch, have you unplugged the receiver for five minutes and then plugged it back in? That will usually initiate software downloads that can help resolve issues. If this doesn't work, call DirecTV. They can troubleshoot over the phone for free.

Is this TV HD capable?

This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")

No signal

. I changed from my component video inputs to the ones on the side of the TV and that works. Seems like the high quality video receiver, i.e. the control box, is the problem, per other complaint sites.

Warranty is only for 12 months, otherwise it is an expensive fix.

Audio vs Video

Happens mostly on your local channels right? This is a issue with the local broadcaster and not directv. Due to the digital transition this has been a widespread issue. Until the local affiliate for NBC, ABC, etc. fully transmit a digital signal then this sync problem is to be expected.
