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.

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

Green and blue faded


Some of these had bad picture tubes--(model indicated here uses 3 tubes)

Simple test is go to a black and white channel and turn color to zero= is the screen black and white or some other color?

Also go to a unused video input and look at screen=all you should see is black screen with the input number in green= any other color and something may just need to be adjusted.
