Westinghouse 32 inch screen goes blank

I have a three year old Westinghouse 32 inch flat screen lcd ready TV. It would run very well then go blank. Most of the time you could turn the TV off for a short period of time and it would come back on and work fine. Some times for days and days and some times for minutes. It went blank yesterday and now even turning on and off it won't respond.

    I have exactly the same problem with my three year old Westinghouse 32 inch flat screen TV. It worked fine and every once in a while it would go black. I could shut it off or unplug it and it would come back on and work fine. Then it started happening more frequently and finally it would not come back on at all. I would like to get it fixed, but, fear the cost to fix it would be more than buying a new TV; if I can find someone to fix it in the first place.

    I can confirm this fix. Thanks for the link, too.

    Only my TV is less then a year old. Sad tht a person can pay over a thousand dollars for something and not have it work less then a year later.

    I replaced c162 but unfortunately the problem still happens here and there. Didn't see any other connections that are visibly damaged. Any other advice about other capacitors that might be the culprit, or how to test?

Westinghouse LTV-32w1

replace capacitor c162 on power supply

power supply was a delta electric dps210ep-2c rev01

reheat any solder joints that don't look 100% as well .
such as c310 .

this is a known working fix . try before you buy a supply .

    i have the same problem with the westinghouse 32 inch. We should all write to them so They should be responsible and either help pay or fixed this problem. too many people had the same problem. We should tell them we will not ever purchase their product again! which I havent. I bought a Sharp and Samsung.

    can you tell me where you buy the c162 capacitors. I search on ebay. but I really don't know which is fit? can you give me the link. please.

  • Danny nemal
    Danny nemal Jul 17, 2014

    FYI , c162 is the location of the part not the value of the capacitor , you must read the value off the capacitor .

  • Benny Kuang
    Benny Kuang Jul 17, 2014

    I see. the capacitors show KY 35V 680UF M105C 5(7) 5D. size is 12.5x 20mm. I can find any seller they sell those capacitor. can you help me if you find the link. please. I don't want to buy a new TV.

    alot in ebay. size can't found 12.5MMX20MM...do I have to find the one match the KY. what is KY Mean? just the Series or not?

  • Danny nemal
    Danny nemal Jul 17, 2014

    you are over thinking it , 35v 680u or as close to it as you can find , ky series is just low impedence / long life , for use in power supplies . the height with is not critical , as long as the lead spacing will allow soldering to board . you can probably find similar caps inside of and old power supplies . dimension do not need to be exactly the same ..

For those interested I repaired my powersupply by going over the connections with fresh solder. All of the main lugs of the transformer ect. Unfortunately now I have a problem with thick blue lines on the screen, but I think that means the LCD is bad.

    I repaired this TV over two years ago, and the blue line turned out to be a lose connection on the pannel side. Two years later it still works perfectly.

The skin tones on people's faces are different colors and shadowed and I can't find my owner's manual.


its ok, pause the screen and get a wax crayon the colour that you want the peoples faces to be and colour over them on the screen. when you have fully enjoyed that frame scrub it off and pause the video 1 second later. eventually you will make the whole movie like this the exact colour you want it.................

The picture went black, but the tv still has audio


The back light inverter board may have gone out, or ir is not getting 24vdc from the power supply module, check those two places.

Screen is completely green when using hdmi cables. any solutions or know issues? it is a 32" Westinghouse tv approx 3yrs old


Try a different sorce to the HDMI and see what happens then. If the issue goes away then its either a compatability with the device thats causing the green screen or that device is bad.

Blank screen when tv has been on for 10-20 minutes


Hi jilanfa00, 
I am happy to help, we need to check the backlight inverter.
  1. Turn tv on and get to a point that you have audio.
  2. Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen.
  3. Look very closely at the screen for a very dark video image.
If you see an image you have a bad inverter, you should be able to replace it yourself. I can walk you through in chat. Let me know your findings. Lone99star
