Westinghouse flat panel television problems

Woke up one morning and turned the t.v. on. The blue light on the side panel appeared; however, there was only a blank screen - no picture. The audio worked perfectly. I unplugged the t.v. and let it sit for half an hour. I turned it back on, and again, the same problem: perfect sound, no picture. Utilizing the remote, I pressed attempted to turn the channel and select various menu options. Nothing ever appeared on screen. Can someone please help me?

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

This sounds like bad inverter board.
Every time LCD goes from Standby to ON state - Inverter Board resets it’s self for approx. ~1 sec, during which time you should see blue screen.
Problem is that board detects problem with voltage/current on one of the seven transformers and shuts down automatically...
As to the costs:
- BestBuy repair service approx.. $600.00
- Buy new Inverter Board & repair LCD your self approx. $200.00
- Another option is to repair Inverter Board, but parts are sometimes hard to get...
Now for the DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME or AT YOUR OWN RISK solution:
-The cheapest method is to bypass protection circuit, by transferring good signal from working transformer (using 10nF/250V capacitor) to detection circuit at the faulty transformer.
Then watch movies on your LCD unlit BAD transformer totally BURNS-OUT.
This will be obvious by dark stripe about 1"-2" tall across your display.
Hopefully the only damage will be to the transformer and not CCFL (light behind your LCD), but when you are faced with a choice of using it for a while longer or throwing your LCD to garbage right now... to me this choice was simple.
Good LUCK.

SOURCE: No power on Westinghouse LTV-46w1 Television

This kind of failure is very common; that is why I suggest that one should keep the old CRT TV, buy a converter and put them both in the garage or basement so they are handy when our s*e*x*y new sets go belly up.
With fair confidence I can say that the main power supply has failed.
If you want to try this on your own, it only will require the removal of a few screws and a flashlight.
- Unplug the set overnight. - Remove the rear housing  - Use some logic and these tips; look for a separate board with larger than average parts on it and seems closer to the power cord than others. This will be the power supply.
Check the board over for something that looks like a part number and record it. If you find more than one, one of them will be the bare board number, the second (sometimes on a sticker instead of printed directly on the board) should be the part number for the assembly.
Search for the Westinghouse service company nearest you and call them with this info. Ask if they repair these or just sell new ones. If it is the latter, don't pitch the old one, continue to look for a repair service that will take it on after you have the new one in place and can watch your favorites again. The new supply will likely cost between $90 - $150 and with a little common sense, most anyone can remove and replace these in the set. Expect any repair to cost about the same as a new supply; US technical labor costs more than Chinese assembly labor. 
These supplies can be as reliable as the primitive older type but companies refuse to use the high-grade components necessary to give them a long life so they fail much sooner than the old, less efficient kind known as 'linear' supplies.

I called westinghouse with a similar problem(my picture shows up but all the white turns blue or somtimes pink).
they say the problem is similar to that of the xbox 360's red ring of death problem. Now what needs to be done is the unit needs to be unplugged completely for about 30 minutes. this allows the unit to completely cool down. and when the unit restarts and heats up the troubled connections will reflow and all will be fixed.
I tried this and it worked well for my TV. but it is only a temp fix and will need to be done again if the problem occurs.

Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

SOURCE: westinghouse LTV30w2 has blank screen and audio

What you have is a darfon V144 board (junk). it's a simple fix if you know how to use some basic tools and a soldering iron. Get an led (i used digikey's PN: L10041-ND) and solder it from pin 10 to pin 16 on the OZ960 chip on the inverter board. If you need the chip layout type "OZ960 pdf" in google. Hope this helps.

Hello, It seems you might have to replace the main board on your unit since the board is not booting up all the way and it is also jamming the signal. If you are interested in obtaning the part please email Westinghouse parts at parts@@wde.com for price and availability of the main board.
