Question about Westinghouse LTV-40w1 HDC 40.02 in. LCD HDTV

LTV-40w1 HDC Westinghouse TV

Purchased last Xmas and thank goodness it was plug&play. Today I finally had HD cable installed (live in small town - just came available). Unfortunately, when I turned it off and back on again, I am met with a black screen saying auto scan required. I read the books but can't figure out how to access the screen I might need to fix this problem. I can't find any way to run the auto scan. Is anyone familiar with this object? I need help! The cable company is difficult and customers are greeted with a voice menu which is downright rude......basically wait until they feel like giving you a service call either online, verbal or in person.

I had the same issue. I just bought this tv. I went to source on the side of the tv pushed the input button til it went to YPbPr1 and the screen came up. My HD cable box is a little old so I'm using that instead of HDMI. But if your using HDMI just keep hitting that button til you see HDMI and it should work.

Either check around in Any DVD HD or the BluRay menu to set audio output to PCM, which doesn't require any decoding to play back properly or you will have to convert them separately.

Tivo HD displays ''hdmi connection not permitted''


This happened to me many times with my Sharp 40" LCD. I am actually running 2 tvs of of 1 HD Tivo. One in the bedroom with HDMI and then through the wall into my kitchen tv via Component. ( yes whatever is on in the bedroom plays in the kitchen).. So this AM my power dropped out for a few seconds then came back on. When the Tivo rebooted I got that " hdmi connection not permitted" message. In the past, I would just reboot everything and all would be ok.. But today I couldnt get the tv with the HDMI to display the programming. It would show the tivo menus, but when I tried to play anything or watch live tv, the message would pop up again. The kitchen TV with the components was working the whole time...
So finally I rebooted the Tivo one more time. But this time I left the HDMI cable unplugged from the Sharp in the bedroom untill the Tivo was fully booted and a live channel was playing in the kitchen. I then plugged the HDMI back into the bedroon TV, and it came back on. Im not saying this will work for you, But its worth a try

No cd included with hard drive, how do i install?


normally you dont need any software to install the HD if its a newer computer (last couple of years) just check your jumper settings, it should show you on the HD where to put the jumper for master / slave.

If your putting it in as a second HD for more space you will want to put the jumper on the back of the drive to "slave" and attach it to the same cable as the hard drive in your computer already.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

RF module related to Direct TV.


yes you can but the 2nd tv wont be in HD. The modulator can be purchased for any electronics store. what it does is turns a composite video signal (yellow, red, white cables) into a coax (screw in cable). it has an composite input that you would connect from the receiver and a coax output that you would connect to the other bedroom tv.
