Question about Westinghouse LVM-37w1 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer


LVM-37w1 won't power up. Picture went off while watching satellite TV. LCD onnected via RGB composite from satellite receiver. Blue power light went off and amber light came on. When I went up to LCD and pushed the power button to see if I could get the picture back on I heard a loud snap come from the rear of the unit near the area where the power cable connects to the LCD. Sounds like I might have given it a static electricity zap. There was no burning smell or anything unusual like that. I am wondering if this has happened to anyone else. Is this unit worth fixing or will it cost the same as buying a new one.? I tried using a different power cable but wasn't able to power it up.

I had the LCD repaired. It turns out that the power supply went out. It cost me a few hundred bucks but it was worth the repair rather than buying a new one for 3x as much.

LVM-37w1 after 5 minutes of viewing, picture and sound go off. Blue power light turns orange. attempts to turn on TV are unsuccessful. Blue light immediately turns orange.

I saw this fix posted on another blog by a fellow named Patrick. I tried it today and it it worked. It fixed my Westinghouse lvm-37w1. Basically disassemble the back of the TV (removing all the screws on the edges and middle). Remove screws holding bottom speaker and stand. There are 2 chrome rods extending down. There are small screws inside holding them on. You can turn the rods and unscrew the screws but need a small screw driver to put them back on. Remove the black cover on the back. remove the plates on the lower middle section. You will expose a printed circuit card. unplug wires and unscrew 4 screws holding it in. Remove it, turn it upside down and inspect the solder joints near the lower middle (especially under the gray relay on the other side). I found 4 solder joints that were cracked. Resolder the larger solder joints that are cracked or look bad (small solder joints are too delicate). Put it back to gether and it should work now. Mine works great. No more black screen with no sound.12_2_2011_5_11_21_am.jpg

Hello, I can assure you it is the inverter board on this unit. The T-CON board (controller) will only mess with your picture in different ways but you the way you describe the symptoms it is for sure your inverter board. The harders part wil be to find some, you should probably look in, or

Picture went to all pink but menu is in full color if bypass hd inputs picture is fine and using rca cables picture is fine its just the component connections that turn screen all pink

Your output device is likely trying to send out a YPbPr signal. On the output device try switching it to an automatic mode ideally or manually switching it to RGB. On the PS3 it is under the Video Settings section (Not the display settings.)

It is worth fixing but you have to replace the power supply. It is a fairly common problem with the Westinghouse units.
