    Same problem showed up when my TV was about 6 months old. The fan behind the set worked for a while. Getting anyone to work on a Westinghouse here in Central Illinois is impossible. Does anyone know how to get the back off one of these things?

Most likely  your problem is in the power supply.  You would need a technition to check it out. They should usefreeze spray to locate the defective part  pr replace the completew poser supply about $90.00 plus shipping.

I called Westinghouse and told them about this SAME problem I was having. I had to bring it to one of the 2 repair shops they have in the whole state of Illinois... what a joke that is! This problem is caused by some wire overheating. I was told that the part was replaced and it would not happen again. Two days later the picture went out and all the colored lines came back. I am not sure what else to try when one of their repair shops can't fix the problem!

It happens to me at least once in 2 weeks. What I do is just take out the power plug out of the TV and put it back after about 10 seconds. It's guaranteed to work!

I don't have a foolproof solution, and I most definitely have the SAME problem as you. I have decided however that the problem is due to some kind of overheating. I have air conditioning in my home, but when I started placing a large fan directly behind the TV and blowing it straight through the plastic grille, it reduces this problem by about 80%. Any other solutions would be greatly appreciated!!!

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.

You need to replace the inverter board. The lamp failing is very uncommon, moreover LCD Tvs have more than one lamp, and they do not fail all at once.
The connection cable from inverter to main board must be tested, the inverter must be tested, then the inverter must be replaced.
If you DIY remember that the inverter is an high voltage board.

Colored vertical lines

It is a tossup between a bad LCD panel and the logic board. The only way to tell for sure is to change out the logic board or have it tested on another unit. Checkout for instruction videos on that unit as well as parts.
