Question about Westinghouse 55" 1080p 120hz LCD HDTV - Black VR-5525z
I can turn on the TV with a remote, but then it shuts off after the big 'W' appears on the screen. I tried turning it on with the power button on the TV itself, but it does not respond, none of the buttons on the TV work. The light indicator is on, the screen appears to work, but the TV won't stay on, it shuts off a second after the 'W' on the screen shows up.

A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

The control panel, or the circuit area that reads the control panel, or the uPC is not functioning properly for reading the control command. The service tech will try a new control panel assembly, or the module(s) that have the related circuitry. Once the defective modules are replaced, the tech will leave in the new modules.
When under warranty and these sets are exchanged under warranty, they give you back a set that was serviced from someone else. That is the drawback with having the set serviced under warranty.

This kind of failure is very common; that is why I suggest that one should keep the old CRT TV, buy a converter and put them both in the garage or basement so they are handy when our s*e*x*y new sets go belly up.
With fair confidence I can say that the main power supply has failed.
If you want to try this on your own, it only will require the removal of a few screws and a flashlight.
- Unplug the set overnight. - Remove the rear housing - Use some logic and these tips; look for a separate board with larger than average parts on it and seems closer to the power cord than others. This will be the power supply.
Check the board over for something that looks like a part number and record it. If you find more than one, one of them will be the bare board number, the second (sometimes on a sticker instead of printed directly on the board) should be the part number for the assembly.
Search for the Westinghouse service company nearest you and call them with this info. Ask if they repair these or just sell new ones. If it is the latter, don't pitch the old one, continue to look for a repair service that will take it on after you have the new one in place and can watch your favorites again. The new supply will likely cost between $90 - $150 and with a little common sense, most anyone can remove and replace these in the set. Expect any repair to cost about the same as a new supply; US technical labor costs more than Chinese assembly labor.
These supplies can be as reliable as the primitive older type but companies refuse to use the high-grade components necessary to give them a long life so they fail much sooner than the old, less efficient kind known as 'linear' supplies.
