Westinghouse SK32H240S TV will not show picture...
Attempted to hook up this TV to satillite reciever. Though sound came through, the picture did not. Also hooked up a DVD player. Same thing happened. sound came through, but no picture. Just black screen. Picture would "blink" on about 5 seconds after turning power on to TV, but would then instantly go to black screen.
I have no idea why. I would appreciate it if you could help me.

First try a new power cord for the TV. If that doesn't solve the problem, the power supply has failed. (Possibly one or more capacitors on the power supply board have failed. Alternatively, a fuse, zener diode or resistor that works as a fuse has failed) You will need to open the tv and inspect the power supply. Westinghouse TVs use a number of different boards. If you want to replace the entire power supply, you will need to note that exact part number on the label. ShopJimmy has refurbished and used power supplies for this model: http://www.shopjimmy.com/westinghouse-sk-32h240s . The used ones are from TVs that were damaged in shipping and thus have minimal use. http://www.partstore.com/Model/Westinghouse+Digital+Electroni/Westinghouse+Digital/SK32H240S/Other+Remotes.aspx also has replacement parts.
There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Please post back what you find.
Could be whats called the backlight inverter. Mine did the same exact thing. Ordered a new inverter and works fine now. i'm not a very techy person, but was able to remove and install myself! Got one at the link below...not cheap though..sorry.
The inverter in the link is for a Westinghouse 32" SK32H240S
I have had this problem now for about six months with my Niko OPT-3211W. After replacing the Inverter card, VIT70002.00 as suggested nothing changed. I then read that it may be a couple of capacitors in the power supply, but I do not have the skills needed to replace them, nor do I want to pay to fix it. The solution is simple... turn on the TV and wait two to five minutes, then turn off the main power. I suggest using a power strip. Then turn the power back on in two to five seconds. The TV will come back on and it works great from then on. I thought that it was a freak thing, but it keeps working.
