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

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

It may have bad T-CON board or the bad DC feeding it. You need to check the DC voltage feeding it.

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

The color is not working. I am being informed to change the motherboard. 42 inch JVC. where can i buy the orignal from?

Please elaborate on the color not working:
1.Is the picture clear just the color shift is off, or is the picture like watching a black&white Tv?
2.If the colors are just faded, non-contrasting, come and go, go into the programming section and reset adjustments to achieve the desired picture.
3. For colors that fade in and out ( come and go ) absent any information as to the source ( cable, antenna, satellite ) check all source connections, disconnect and reconnect while keeping a an eye out for loose, damaged, or dirty/corroded connections.
4. If determined that that the television does have a component fault, I question the mother board designation as these units have several compartmentalized card/boards. Replacement board availability and location ( as I do not know your location ) is available from :

Hi, I have a Westinghouse 42"

The only other thing that I would think to replace on this is the power board. You may have bad power going to the main board. Other than that you may be at the point of no return on that TV.

Stuck on black and white

Hi, this is usually an indication of a shattered color wheel, the only way you can be certain is to take the set all apart and look at the color wheel, looks like a set of prism glass mounted on a fan shaft, if the shaft doesn`t spin or the prism glass comes apart the picture will be black & white, hope this helps, BMW Rider
