Question about Westinghouse LTV-27w7 7 in. LCD HDTV

Westinghouse LCD picture goes out after about 10 minutes

Picture goes to blue and black vertical moving bars after about 10 minutes of being on. Used to eventually come back to regular picture, but lately the problem has not been resolving. Any suggestions on what the problem is? How expensive to fix?

    Mine used to turn on and off with no problems, but every once in awhile I would get vertical lines which would go away after I turned it on and off a few times. Now I turned it on and I got vertical lines, so I turned it off to turn it back on but I had to press the power button multiple times before it would turn back on. I have to press the power button multiple times to get it to turn off, sometimes I just have to pull the power cable out to power it off. I get a blue screen and the led light is on, I can't change the channels, bring up a setup menu or see the changing of sound volume. I'm not sure if the sound works or not, it probably does. It sounds to me like a tube or cable is broken/loose. Anyone know how to fix this?

Check for swollen capacitors in the power supply. They should be flat on the top, not domed.

My LTV-32w6 westinghouse powers on & has sound but displays black screen with very faint colored vertical lines. It shows like this for about 1min before it goes into standby mode & the blue power...


Depends on what is causing it...

Vertical bands of faint black are generally caused by filtering capacitors and can be found in the power supply or the 5 volt supply or even the Video processing circuit...it is not an easy task to identify the source of Video hum bars.....we also call them Jailbars.

Another problem seen is faint black lines caused by the TV set being in 4:3 mode all the time....right at the edge of where the picture ends and the black pillars begin, we see a faint black line that never goes away and is normally seen with a full screen....

That is actually image retention, but it's caused by the crystals that create the picture becoming polarized or ionized over a very long period of time....and it's not easy to DE-Polarize them !

But there are some theories out on how to do that....
Certain people suggest running the TV overnight with an ALL-WHITE picture and some suggest an ALL BLACK PICTURE...and some suggest alternating between both !!

Now, a black picture is easy to make, you just deactivate the Video Mute (blue screen) and set it to an unused Video INPUT overnight....

About the only way to make a white screen is to use the USB port for pictures and take a very bright outdoor shot of a piece of white paper that hopefully is out of focus too....That would create an all-white picture that you can plug into your TV set overnight....

Now if you decide to try this, deactivate any displays on your TV set...all you do is press the display button until the Video and/or USB input numbers disappear....

Next day , set it back to normal TV and see if it's gone or if it's REDUCED....try it again if needed, or try the exact opposite if you see NO RESULTS....

Vertical colour bars


The problem is in the LCD controller board is overheated because the power supply unit is at the bottomof the TV and the heat rises upward to the vent on the top of the TV. You can verify that is hest problrm by running TV with the back removed and have a small fan blowing on the top secdtion of the TV where the LCD controller is. This how I fixed my scrambled picture after warm up (I added heat sinks to the IC on the LCD controller board) : http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/
You can try it if the board was not badly damaged already by the heat. My has been running great for over a month now.

Westinghouse SK-26H520S LCD TV has blue screen on the side


Vertical color scan has an open or short..............it could also be a ground problem with in the V-color scan circuits...

If you tap the tv and the color bar is gone then its a ground problem with in those circuits above. Needs a solder re-flow and check the condition of ribbon cables.
