Question about Westinghouse LCM-22w2 Television

Screen goes white

Hello I have a 22" lcd westinghouse lcm-22w2 screen. Bought brand new and after a while the screen would just go white. The program i was running will still be running in the background just no screen .I could turn it off and on and would come back on but now its taking many more times flicking it off and on for it to return on. This happens a lot if im exiting a game, page, or just tabbing out of the window im on ..any sugestions? thanks

    Same exact problem on the LCM 22w2
    22" display, needs power cycling several times sometimes to make it 'catch'.. hard to explain, but sometimes the resolution just won't catch and the screen whites out, and may continue to turn on and off on its own until I step in and hit the power button a few times.
    This behavior seems to be accompanied by a capacitor popping & whistling sound.
    I gave up and replaced this 4 year old display with something newer and bigger (and not westinghouse)>

I fixed it! It's the power supply board.

The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supply board. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCD flatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder, or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take out the yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specifications for each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to the electronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can go over the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitance value matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net for advice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really should replace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the power plug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To my delight, the white screen of death went away and it was working as new!

I saved a ton of money fixing this, it's definitely worth learning how to solder to do this.

Trying to program my Westinghouse LCM-22w2 ComputerMonitor/TV with my AT&T U-Verse Remote Control. What's the code?


There is no tuner in the monitor, it only works as a TV with a tuner added. The remote would work with the tuner, not the monitor !

My LCM-22w2 monitor will now rarely start up. It powers up white-screen and won't do anything. Occasionally it powers up ok and works fine.


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

wford451, You should open up the unit and inspect the "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply" printed circuit board for the common 2 problems that create symptoms like yours. Do some reading in my and other CCFL back-lit lcd monitor technicians fixya profiles. They are loaded with solutions to fix your unit. Your LCM 22W2 is no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation!!! 12fixlouie

Can't find correct setting for westinghouse lcm22w2 monitor


I don't know if this actually will fix your problem, but all LCM 22w2's are plagued with the 'white screen of death' and eventual power shutoff, including garbage characters and faulty menu, video output, etc. Here's how I fixed it.
