Re: black screen

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 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 problem 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. for professional hosting solutions

Black vertical stripe on screen, any input

good day sir/maam, the black vertical stripe on screen could either be onscreen data input/output,so check your manual, worst it could be failure of the vertical amplifier stage. It could also be interference. at this point its kinda hard to isolate the problem, only diagnostics tools found on service centers could find the fault. better check your local service shop if they could take a look at it.

I have a 42' LG plasma that has now has a 1 1/2 inch verticle stripe on the right side. It used to come and go but now rarely goes away. Any ideas?

I believe that this could be a type of "burn in". If you watch anything with a black stripe on the sides or bottom of the screen often, then this could be the problem. My suggestion is to watch things that have no black side bars for a while (>week) and see if this eliminates the problem.
Good Luck!!
