SOURCE: I have a Westinghouse TV , when turned on the

I just fixed the same model and with your symptom. What it appears to be is the main module is locking up just after the Logo goes away. All you can do is unplug and try again and all you will get is the logo for 5 seconds and then black screen, no sound and led stays lit. Cannot turn off or on. The power supply is actually working fine, it's the main module that has died. This module is no longer available, the part number was W470PROLX68. What i did to restore operation on this unit was to insert 3 volts into the plug going to the master inverter board and then plugged the tv AC cord in. The set showed the logo and then it started working. I removed the 3 volts and it has worked every time since then.
Here is what you should try to do: First take two AA batteries and solder them in series and attach two short wires so you can use it as a power source. Now you have a 3 volts power supply. Next Remove the stand first before removing the back cover. Looking at the back of the unit you will see the power supply and the main circuit boards in the middle (under metal shields) and two boards on each side. These are partially covered with a metal shield, the one on the left side is the master inverter, the one on the right is the slave inv. They both have a plug and wires going to them from the power supply, but the one to the master will have two extra wires. I believe the colors are purple and blue, and they are separated with an empty hole (unused part of the plug). The wire on the end is where you will hook up the positive lead of your battery pack. The negative lead simply goes to the metal shield. With these hooked up plug the tv into the ac and give it a couple seconds and hopfully you will see the tv come on. If it does then disconnect the battery pack and try it without it. good luck.

Hello,

there are so many reasons why your TV won't bring out sound. You need to troubleshoot first, in order to get to the root of the problem, before a solution can be proffered.

First, connect a DVD player to the TV, observe if there is going to be sound. If there is still no sound after connecting the DVD player to the TV, proceed to the next step. "The reason why I asked you to connect a DVD player to the TV is to confirm if the problem is simply not from the audio cord connected to the TV."

Second, get an headset, connect it to the earphone jack of the TV and observe if there is going to be sound. If there is no sound, then it is glaring now that your TV is having a defective sound card/IC that's why it is not bring out any sound. (Note that connecting an headset to your TV is optional because not all TV's has a space for headset). "The reason why I asked you to connect an headset to the TV is to also confirm if problem is not from the TV speaker. Though TV speaker problems are rare but sometimes, the TV speaker might be defective or the speaker wires may have loosed contact or cut into two, due to one reason or the other. But if the headset doesn't bring out any sound from the TV, then it is not so."

If none of the above seems not to be the cause of the problem, then the above troubleshooting has confirmed that the TV has got a defective sound card/ic. The sound IC/card of the TV has to be replaced for the TV to bring out sound again.

To be honest with you, replacing or fixing the sound card/ic of your TV requires the ability or experience to do so.

Now, if you are convinced you can fix or replace this yourself, please reply so that i can help you further. And make sure you troubleshoot first, before getting back to me.

Regards.

I have a VR-6025Z 60"


unplug TV and Bluray power cords from wall socket, replug HDMI cable in both units, replug power cords back in, turn them On and check.

Let me know how it worked. it seems Bluray player set its display resolution bit higher that TV doesn't support.
Please connect Bluray in TV by usual AV cable (yellow-red-white) and go to BD player setup menu and reduce HDMI Out resolution like 1080p to 1080i, then check it in TV HDMI input.

Hello, it sounds like your inverter board is goin out on the set, when you change channels if you notice on almost any TV the screen goes dark and the new channel appears, it sounds like you are not getting enough power out of the inverter board to power up the backlight enough to come on. This is why the sound remains because everything else works fine and the sound is connected to the main board.
