Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w4 32.02 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

Audio not Working

My problem is the Audio is not working at all. The LCD TV was working fine until 2 days ago when I turned the LCD TV on and there was no audio. I checked the User manual and did everything the manual suggested and it's still not working. After the first evening I turned the TV on and it did not work. The next morning I turned the TV on and the Audio was working. Then that evening I turned the TV on and it was not working again. Please any help will be appreciated. Thank you, Miggybee

Have you tried unplugging overnight? Sometimes mine gets screen garbage and that clears it up. Of course, now it says "Auto Scan Required" every time I power up. Maybe I should've grabbed that after Xmas 32" at Fry's for $400.

If the power light stays on green, I would look tward a backlight issue. If you can see any image at all then the backlight controler or the backlights are bad. If there is nothing then if could be a power supply overheating or an inverter failure. More than likely as the unit heats up a failed solder connection is loosing contact causing the screen to go black.

I have had this problem now for about six months with my Niko OPT-3211W. After replacing the Inverter card, VIT70002.00 as suggested nothing changed. I then read that it may be a couple of capacitors in the power supply, but I do not have the skills needed to replace them, nor do I want to pay to fix it. The solution is simple... turn on the TV and wait two to five minutes, then turn off the main power. I suggest using a power strip. Then turn the power back on in two to five seconds. The TV will come back on and it works great from then on. I thought that it was a freak thing, but it keeps working.

No quick fixes. A component such as a capacitor is heating up and failing. Sometimes a cracked solder connection will work fine until it heats up and no longer sustains the connection.

When the screen goes off, shine a very bright flashlight at the screen to see if the image is still there. In many cases, the problem is the screen backlight, which consists of several CCFL tubes (fluorescent lamps) and a circuit board called the inverter (similar to a lamp ballast).

If the image is there, but the backlight is off, then you just may need a new inverter board.

Thre 24vdc power supply or backlight inverter boards may have gone out, those are the places you ned to check first.

First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

Please read my guide to understand how LCD TV works.

Start with the simple things, make sure the mute feature is turned off. Also, be aware that some TV sets allow you to turn off the internal audio in the menu. If this isn't the case and you are not getting sound on any inputs, your set will need to be serviced.

Ultra LCD 30-500 TV, audio but no video. Worked fine for 4 years until 3 days ago when the screen would go black intermittently. Now there is no video period, only audio. Does anyone have a solution or...

The problem can be bad backlight inverter board or the 24vdc power supply for the backlight inverter is not working, it is easier to look at the power supply module than to get to the inverter board, These are the two most failure parts in LCD TV. Look for bad capacitors in the power supply first or burnt parts.
Please leave a feedback on what you find.

Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.

Since you have another TV with the same problem you can try using an antenna(indoor model ok) to see if the cable is causing the problem. If not return TV before the warranty expires.

It sounds like you have a Power Supply Board problem. The PSB is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.

Thanks for using FIXYA, big IRISH.
