Question about Televison & Video
Westinghouse LED flat screen. 2-3 years old. Started freezing up while in play and only a "hard shutdown" would allow the unit to power off and automatically reboot. Getting worse. Second problem is the color display is terribly distorted. Was only intermittent at first but over last few months it's pretty constant. I can't find my manual to troubleshoot thanks for any suggestions.
I have a Westinghouse lcd tv myself about 5 almost 6 years old, I only had problems with the green light not coming on. The best thing to do is to open it up and replace any aging electrolytic capacitors or any bulging ones.

The above fix, listed by Tom saved us!! We did as instructed and took off the back of our 50 inch Magnavox plasma tv. We were not sure what we were looking for so we googled capacitator (image) & there was a photo of a fried capacitator! Sure enough we noticed ours were "fried", we took out the board and went to an electronic supply store, bought the 2 capacitators ($2.00 each!!) and then found someone who did tv repair to sauter the new capacitators onto the board. (It is important someone who know how to sauter and recognizes polarity do do this for you) All in all we fixed this following the above instructions for $34.00 and our time. For a month we were told to spend hundreds getting a new power board!
Kudos to you Tom & thanks so much!!

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
