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.

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.

42 inch toshiba has horizontal white lines when turned on in the morning goes away after 1-2 minutes

This issue is usually caused by some "lazy old" capacitors in the Vertical sweep section or cold solder joints. That is a large TV so it would be worth having an experienced 'old school' tv tech fix it. They can easily find the bad component using Freeze Spray that will reproduce the problem by acting as a cold start. Either way this issue will not damage anything else on your tv and may or may not get worse over time.

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.

Tv problem

I just serviced this model, same problem as noted. I did a resolder job on the power/drive PC board. This was NOT the problem! The problem acts like an electrolytic capacitor issue or horizontal drive amp. Once I get my hands a service manual & schematics, we'll resolve it. I'll post my results AFTER Super Bowl.
