This is known as SLEEP MODE problem.
1. Get a power surge protector / strip.
2. Plug your TV power cord to the power surge.
3.Then turn-on your TV using the remote control. Just in case it won't go all the way to normal state.
4. Turn-off the switch of your power surge like 5 times with an interval of 3-5 seconds.
5. Then repeat step 3 and 4.
6. These step is done to over-ride the sleep mode.

FOUND A SOLUTION! (at least in my case) thanks to some creative Google searching...
Apparently the HDMI ports can get into a state where they are unable to negotiate the input signal properly. The way to "clear" the ports and allow the HDMI signal to be detected is to perform a "reset" on the unit.
Just turn the set off using the power button on the right side of the unit. Then, press and HOLD the power button for at least 10 seconds, then release.
The set should turn on and essentially do a "reboot" where it displays the Westinghouse logo. After that your HDMI ports should be functional again.
It worked for me :-) Best of luck..

Hello I have a Westinghouse TV model number TX-42F430S Sometimes it comes on and sometimes it does not. It has an orange light in the center below the W emblem in the center of the TV. when the TV actually comes on that same light is blue Is this the reason that the TV will and will not come on sometimes? is it a power issue mayb a power circut issue???
