Question about Westinghouse SK-32H540S 32 in. LCD TV
TV COMES ON WITH SOUND BUT NO PICTURE, AND THERE IS LIGHT IN THE SCREEN, AS IF THE BACK LIGHT WAS WORKING
Picture comes on for about 3 seconds, then screen goes blank. Sound is fine, just no picture. Back light is supposed to last 50,000 hours. Doubt they will cover it, anyone know proper tools to replace it myself?
I had the same problem today with the same symptoms. I tried a power reset, removing the cables, checked all inputs and got the same symptoms.
I found a temporary fix. When I turned the TV on, I immediately press the backlight but on the remote until the bar appears then lower the setting down to 10. This may take a couple of tries of powering the TV off/on. Once I got the setting lowered to 10, the picture stayed on. If you invoke any of the presets it will change this setting. I'm going to call someone and try to get more information on a permanent fix.
I hope this helps, at least I got the picture back.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.
The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.
My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.
Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

You almost certainly are between a rock and a hard place. If you have to come here to ask this question (and no offense is intended or implied), you probably won't be able to do anything to repair the unit yourself. What you can do is call around to some local shops and describe the problem and see what kind of repair costs you might incur having it repaired.
