Question about Westinghouse LCM-22w2 Television

1 Answer

I need manual / install cd & White Screen

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?
Thanks,
kennyface@hotmail.com

    I found manual! (and read it cover to cover)

    And I have a new computer (HP m9040n & nvidia 8400 GS) so I don't think I need cd? But any ideas about my monitor is still going white? And repair cost?
    Thanks All

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.

My LCM-22w2 monitor will now rarely start up. It powers up white-screen and won't do anything. Occasionally it powers up ok and works fine.


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

wford451, You should open up the unit and inspect the "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply" printed circuit board for the common 2 problems that create symptoms like yours. Do some reading in my and other CCFL back-lit lcd monitor technicians fixya profiles. They are loaded with solutions to fix your unit. Your LCM 22W2 is no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation!!! 12fixlouie

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"


Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Television keeps going off


There is a sleep monitor that sends the set to sleep after a designated time. It sounds like you may have inadvertently turned it on and set it for about 10 minutes.
You can view an online user's guide for this tv here: http://www.westinghousedigital.com./pdf/60_User_Manual.pdf if it's a model LCM22-w2 or
here: http://www.westinghousedigital.com./pdf/108_User_Manual.pdf if it's model LCM22-w3

Please pick one and use the instructions to guide you to the On Screen Display and adjust your sleep settings. (try pg 14)

I hope this leads you in the right direction.

If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

I have a BenQ FP791 17 in LCD. I was working until one day I turned it on and it now only displays an all white screen. I plugged it in to another computer, same problem. I can add it as a second monitor to windows but all it displays is white. Windows finds it and the mouse can move over to it but I do not see anything. I am handy with a soldering iron, but not nessisarily diagnosing electronic problems.
Comment posted on Oct 26, 2008I ended up replacing the bulging capacitors on the board inside, and now it works. Thanks for all the comments and help.

Can't find correct setting for westinghouse lcm22w2 monitor


I don't know if this actually will fix your problem, but all LCM 22w2's are plagued with the 'white screen of death' and eventual power shutoff, including garbage characters and faulty menu, video output, etc. Here's how I fixed it.

The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supplyboard. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCDflatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder,or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take outthe yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specificationsfor each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to theelectronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can goover the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitancevalue matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net foradvice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really shouldreplace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the powerplug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To mydelight, 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.
