What you can do is take off the back pannel and there is a cord on the top of the board that looks like a computer board, there are many boards in the TV but the one I am talking about is twords the bottom where the video jacks plug in to the TV. Ok once you have located the pannel there is a cord on the top kinda tword the right side, it is many wires inside a black covering. What you need to do is just simply unplug it and plug it back in, do this as many times to try to fix the problem.

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 installing a wall mount on a westinghouse 47in lcd, i screwed up and now the tv does not work. The tech said i needed an "AC Inverter"? I bought a new smaller TV but would like to fix this one if...


Depending on the model you have you might need ether the inverter board or you might actually need the power board. You are likely to find both these parts at www.shopjimmy.com or by emailing parts@wde.com, you should always have a certified technician fix your TV but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to change ether of these boards.

I had a similar problem and got a TV repair man to fix it for real cheap. The whole fixing took less then 30 min and he goes to your house to fix the TV. He fixed it for an excellent price that left us astonished. He lives in NY. Email me if anyone needs his contact information. You wont be disappointed.
