Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
The tv has intermittent green dotes in the picture. have you seen this and know the problem.
So after six weeks in the shop, the TV is beyond repair. The part to fix the pixilating problem finally came in, but the picture continued to get worse throughout their testing week. They tried repairing the motherboard, or what have you, and were unsuccessful. There is now NO VIDEO at all. They suggested packaging it up and sending it back to Westinghouse, a previous customer was charged a $350 flat fee to repair it. I would rather scrap it. Why spend that much more on a TV that has proven to be a problem child. Screw it! I'm getting a LG!

As stated before this seems to be associated with the overheating of some component. On my set I need to check that the backlight is set to a low level. On power up it automatically adjusts to a level above maximum and the green screen will appear in a few minutes. I took the back off to increase airflow and that helped some. Now the problem only occurs rarely.

I have the same problem with my LCD-32W1. One thing that helps *a little* is to reduce the saturation from the default of 50% to 30%.

Without a fan on sitting directly behind, it'll only take about 15 minutes before the screen bugs. Not to mention, the televison generates heat when off, so uplugging when not under use helps. Other than that, i'm trading it back in through Westinghouse for another one. Hopefully its not problematic or the overall product is definately trash.
