Question about Westinghouse LCM-22w2 Television
First is the Westinghouse LCM -22-w2 a television (with turner?) Or is
a 22" flat screen monitor? (I bought mine from a friend going through
tuff times, he said he only had it for less than one year) It worked
fine for about 5-6 mths. Then it started, whenever I would turn it on
(sometimes) it would turn all white and stay that way. I'm not the kind
of guy who starts messing with the buttons. (and still haven't...
because I don't have manual or install disk. Friend kept saying he
would (he had to move and wasn't sure where they were) And I'm a
trusting soul, and he was a upfront friend.Who now has moved out of
state and hasn't called me in months! (things went from bad to worst
for him, his other half died, lost his job, lost his house, last I
heard they were looking for his truck, where he was living) Anyway! Has
anyone got the drivers and or manual for this? When I hooked it up
"vista" had no trouble with it and it works fine. Then slowly as time
went on it quit booting up (with picture just went white) so I would
shut down computer and retry it again a few seconds later and after 3 -
4 times it would work fine again? btw When I would shut it down I could
tell when it was going to start working because it would sometimes show
shut down screen for a moment and then shut down, when it didn't show
it most times it starts booting and quickly gos to white screen????
This got to be such a pain so I hooked up my old 17" up and just let it
sit for a month or two!
Does anyone have any suggestions? (do you think if I install the drivers it might fix this?) Or any ideas how much it might cost to have it repaired? Or put it the dumpster?
I fixed it! It's the power supply board.
The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supply board. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCD flatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder, or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take out the yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specifications for each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to the electronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can go over the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitance value matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net for advice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really should replace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the power plug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To my delight, the white screen of death went away and it was working as new!
I saved a ton of money fixing this, it's definitely worth learning how to solder to do this.
