Hi phalbeis, Unfortunately it looks like the power supply has failed, since the unit is new I would check into the return policy of the store you bought it from, if your lucky you can just exchange it. If not it will have to be shipped back to the manufacturer.which can be a hassle, you may have to pay the shipping to the repair facility.
Let me know how it goes and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Hi

There are some factors of this kind of problem.

First you could have a failure in the power supply. Next could be the main board. Lastly you could have a problem with the panel itself, this would mean a new set for sure because the part cost is more than a new set.

However try troubleshooting the problem before spending money on repairing or replacing the television. Possibly you can restore the picture and sound to your television ...

Verify the TV is powered on by pressing the power button on the TV's remote or the front panel of the set. This may seem like an obvious step, but many TVs are equipped with a standby light that will illuminate if the TV is turned off, making it appear that the TV is on when it is not.Cycle through the TV's video inputs to verify that your TV is set to the right one. For instance, if you are attempting to use a digital cable converter box that is plugged into the Video 1 input and the TV is set to a Video 2 input that has nothing plugged into it, the TV will not display any picture or sound and may even say "No signal" on the screen. To cycle through the inputs, use the input selection button, typically labeled "input," "source," "TV/video" or the like.

Re-seat the video and audio input connections to verify a loose cable is not causing the TV's loss of signal. If you have a coaxial cable connected from your wall cable jack directly into the TV, it may have come loose thereby eliminating all picture and sound on the TV. Locate the connection cable or cables of whatever device you are attempting to watch and unplug them from where they plug into the TV. Plug them back in and check for a signal. If there is still no picture or sound at this point, the best option is to contact technical support for further assistance.

No Picture on 5 month old tv.


If the screen is just showing white screen, no text, no picture, then the problem cam be in the LCD controller board. I would get this fixed under warranty ASAP, nothing should have gone wrong yet. You may have a lemon, this is not a no name set.

White Westinghouse flat screenTV freezes up and hums.


Sometimes if you just press on your overscan button on the remote and make the picture a little bigger or smaller the humming noise and freezing of the picture will actually stop.

Green light is on ...white noise sound but no picture


This TV finds the connected input sources
automatically for AV1, AV2 and Component 1-
2. It is presumed that RGB and HDMI/DVI
sources are connected.

Check your setup to see if the audio is turn off but if you have a clear picture you should have sound.

Time to call a TV Tech if you are not going to repair the unit.

My lcd tv makes a humming noise


Try removing all cables going to the TV except the power cord. Power on the TV and press mute. If you have any unwanted noise, then you have a defective TV and since it is new, you should get an exchange. If there is no noise with the A/V cables removed, then you might have hooked the source (cable box/DVD Player) into the wrong inputs of the TV.
