Westinghouse LED flat screen. 2-3 years old. - 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.

SOURCE: Magnavox 50" plasma Won't Power on/Shut's off/Blinking red LED

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!!

Why does the video dissapear 2 seconds after power up on my Westinghouse 32in w/dvd?


It sounds more like a backlight tube or inverter board. Five years is about the maximum lifespan of these devices. That's the reason why new set are LED backlit instead of fluorescent.

Screen freezes and wont come back


Also damaged capacitors can cause a slow dieing effect to the display, from what I have seen during my research efforts to find solution for repairs to computers people have bought to me. I have only seen "dead" display lcd monitors that have repaired ok by replacing the $1 capacitors.

My Westinghouse Led flat screen TV freezes. TV is approximately 2 years old and not watched that often. From the internet, it seems the problem is quite common.


When the TV is OFF, the power supply, main board are still running 24/7 since it has to be able to receive the signals from the remote or from the switches on the TV, so it is never really off at all.
You are lucky it last 2 years, some of them TV I work on are less than 2 years old.
This an be the main board or the T-CON board problem.

Whenever i play a game for more than five minutes my computer shuts itself off. no freezing, no blue screen of death, it just turns off.


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

TX-42F430S Lock up on power up


I have a similar problem with my TX-42F430S; Mine freezes when changing from Comp 1 to Comp 2. unpluging and waiting was the only fix. Just recently my TV just started turning off(after about 30min of watching) and the led will flash blue. I need to unplug for about 10min before it works again. Getting frustrated and I have contacted Westinghouse to send for repair. only had the TV for 3 months; connect to Roger Explorer HD box.

It is worth fixing but you have to replace the power supply. It is a fairly common problem with the Westinghouse units.
