Question about Westinghouse LTV-27w6 27 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Flickers on cold startup after 5 min then goes away in 2-3 min.

Just got this tv, now it is acting up. After it has been turned on for about 5 min, the screen flickers with small green lines in all modes. 2-3 mins later it goes away and never returns. Happens all the time when you first turn it on.

Re: Flickers on cold startup after 5 min then goes away...

I had same problem. Tech's said the power was noisy. I cleaned up the power but the TV still did exactly as you describe. Problem will progressively get worse with longer bouts of flickering. I was under warrenty and sent the TV back. After 3 months I am still waiting for a repalcement.

Black vertical line

This seems to be a problem with some older panels. If you are prepared to tackle the problem yourself then try the following.
WARNING there are some very high voltages within the TV which can be LETHAL so the greatest of care should be taken.

With the back of the TV removed, use a hair dryer and apply warm air to all the ribbon cables in turn until you find the one which causes the fault to disappear. Now turn your attention to the faulty ribbon and remake the connections as necessary.

When turned on it Flickers

Mine started out like that, now flickers about an hour before it comes on. I don't turn it off anymore, it'll burn out one of these days and I'll get a better TV.
