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

Open Question

The HD tuner does not save the scanned channels...

Problem since the day I bought my Westinghouse LTV-40w1 HDC HDTV LCD TV/DVD Combo. The HD tuner does not save the scanned channels... Every time I turn on the TV on I need to scan. I was told I may need to update my Firmware using a usb flash drive. I use flashdrives with my pc and understand how this could fix my problem. This is something I noticed when I bought the TV and called in about the problem but was told it was a poor signal for my antenna. Since I was able to get all the channels on analog channels I did not press the issue BUT since the country has gone HD. I now have an issue. I bought the best antenna, NO HELP... I bought the best booster, still same problem and even a signal tester/ Now I know it is not a week signal issue but a TV or software issue. I see firmware updates but my TV is of the earlier serial numbers group. I have searched the web but not able to find or ID the correct firmware to load to my TV. Can you give me guidance or the update I need? Also with the US going all HD I will need to replace all the other TVs in my house. If I can't resolve this issue on my Westinghouse HDTV you can bet I will not consider other Westinghouse products for my home. I dearly hope you can help or give me guidance, Geoff Thanks, GBC_CMC@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Can't get anything on LTV

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you might have a backlight inverter board issue with this TV set. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. There could also be a screen driver problem; if it is then you have to change the entire inverter board. All this is only recommended if you have some kind of expertise for checking the internal circuitry of the TV as these units have high voltages running even when the set is switched off. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: Westinghouse Lvd Tv Model# LTV-40W1

The most obvious board is the T-con one, the one that converts the raw data image from the processor (which works, since you have sound) to the actual data displayed by the LCD pixels. It will be reasonably priced, around $250 for a new on and $150 for a SH one.
The problem will be in finding it - i have been unable to locate one for you in all my bookmarked parts sites.

Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC widescreen DVD Combo


Hi Mouse999. From reading a bit, it seems that there's no region free hacks for the built in dvd player in that specific model. A solution for you, would be to purchase a standalone dvd player, one that is region free or one that has a region free hack available, and to connect it to that tv. If you're in europe and your tv is pal, you also need to have a dvd player that will read both Pal and NTSC video dvd's ! If that doesn't help, please be more specific, i'll be glad to help. Thanks, cheebster.

The TV is rating protected or parental code for movies that are of a type not permitted on TV. Someone most likely set a code to screw with you. If you tried 0000 and 1234 with no luck. You may be able to find the factory rest or set to default that could clear all codes and wipe the channel scan... so you would need to rescan. Ask around to see if the boss set a code to keep prorn off the TV.

LTV-40w1 HDC Westinghouse TV


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.
