Westinghouse 32" LCD HDTV, Firmware update

I have a westinghouse 32" TV and I tried to update the firmware on my TV to the one that is provided by westinghouse.

I plugged in my USB key and turned on my TV. The TV turned on and showed the message " updating firmware" with a blue bar in bottom of the screen indicating the progress.

The blue bar got struck in about 90%. I waited for about 30 min before i had to turn off the TV. Now my TV doesnot show any picture or has any sound when I turn on.

I even tried updating firmware again but it does not read my USB key anymore.

Can someone help me fix this issue. I talked with westinghouse customer support. They didnt know what to do. But they suggested that I try replace the mainboard from local TV technician. Are they right is saying that? what are my options? ( main board costs aroud 250$ and techincia would charge about 150$ to do it) . Please help!

In the case of anyone that has a dead tv (no power light, sound or picture). there is a company named vance baldwin that sells parts for that model ltv-w4. in your case you need the smps power pcb. probably costs about $60.00. real easy to change take the screws out of the back. the board has about 4 screws and 3 connectors you have to unplug ang replug to the new one. if you feel it is worth the money

My westinghouse 27 inch panel shuts off on its own but the front panel light stays on. You have to shut the tv off and turn it back on to macke it work again. It doesnt always work the first time


does it have any Eco settings, or auto shutoff after certain time settings. Not sure if they do anything about that, but there has been a handful of times over last couple years when my 32 in Westinghouse would either turn off, and not start, or simply not turn on. Had to uplug and wait a min a couple times. I have considered updating the firmware, but have heard so many horror stories about this on Westinghouse TVs I am afraid to try it. Just flashed new firmware onto my new Sony TV yesterday, no problems. Westinghouse has some funky issues with different hardware/firmware in same model TVs, and you have to turn off Autosource in power menu. So some peoples problem are probably cuz they didn't follow directions and bricked their tv. But some who suceeded and said it was easy no problem, still ended up with other new issues, and a firmware update is irreversible. If it only happens once in a while, I say live with it, or brave the firmware and give that a shot. I haven't tried Westinghouse support, but have heard it is less than desirable.

HDMI port not working


I have the same problem - its a HDCP handshake issue. Sony says the firmware in the Westinghouse TV needs to be updated - Westinghouse says that they have firmware updates for some models depending on your TV's serial number, otherwise they are working on firmware updates for the rest of us that should fix the problem. Call Westinghouse to see if you can get updated.

Westinghouse ltv 32w4 hdc 32.02 in. hdtv lcd tv / dvd combo


My 42" Westinghouse HDMI inputs just stopped working. I thought it was the TW Explorer 4250HDC issue so I got a new one from TW. Still said no signal from HDMI. So, I shut the TV down and pulled the power cord out of the back. I waited a few seconds and reconnected the pwr cord. The TV "re-booted" so to say and now the HDMI inputs work. I think TVTEK has the right idea that it is firmware/software related. In the mean time, you might want to give that a try.
