Question about Westinghouse 55" 1080p 120hz LCD HDTV - Black VR-5525z

Open Question

Tv turns on, and then shuts off

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.

You will need to replace the power supply or get fix because there aren't too many service parts available anymore.

SOURCE: TV power light comes on but no picture/no sound

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.

SOURCE: No power on Westinghouse LTV-46w1 Television

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.

Cannot program Dish IR remote l03602


adeline_roll

You didn't specify if you are trying to program the remote to your TV or receiver. Is it a replacement remote or did it just quit working? I have provided instructions on how to program to your TV or receiver.

Address to receiver:
Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen (depending on receiver - press System Info button on receiver panel or pull smart card out till System Info screen appears on TV screen).
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button.
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
Remote: Basic Remote (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Press and release the TV Power button.
  4. Press and release the Up or Down Arrow on the remote until the television turns off.
  5. After the television turns off, press and release the OK button.
  6. Test functionality with the TV.
  7. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or problems. Thanks.
