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

SOURCE: I have the westinghouse monitor ( modeL #

Hello, this model has two ribon cables that run from the t_con board to the panel, it sounds like you might have to replace one of them if not the whole t_con board. You can find parts for this at, I would recommend you taking this unit to a certified repair center if you are not atleast a bit technical because you have to did a bit deep in to the set for this one.

My 42 inch westinghouse wont turn onDTV 1080p TX-42F430S

If you are referring to that you are unable to select the the 1080p setting in the TV menu, first try changing the aspect ratio in the TV Menu.
If that does not do it, you have to change the display setting ion your device, if you can not or it does not have 1080p the problem is that resolution is unsupported by your device

I'm going to assume you are somewhere in the US, in which case I found the items you asked for. The original remote is no longer manufacturer/available but I found a couple still kicking around:

If buying from, go for the "Nearly New / Original" rather than the replacement.

Your manual can be dowloaded from here:

The download page will open in a new Browser window. Scroll down a little and click on "Download the Manual". On the next page, scroll to the bottom and enter the 5-digit security code in the box then click "Download Now". You can then save the file to your PC and/or print it for future reference. You don't need to enter your email address to download the manual. If you can't open the manual you may also need to download the latest version of Adobe Reader:

If you have any trouble downloading the instruction manual please post back and I will be happy to assist you.

I need a tv bluetooth adapter for a westinghouse tv

No such thing as a Blue Tooth Adapter Your source must be Blue Tooth and there is no adapter for that situation. Blue Tooth is a format all of it's own. Output from you Blue Tooth (DVD or video console like PS3) device
those are either HDMI or Component Video. Required for increased resolution.

No other input will suffice. When you get it working properly Blue Tooth is very high res. You will be pleased with the picture.

Do you need to upgrade your TV? or? Happy to help...

Westinghouse lvm-47w1 picture goes dim

Hello, I can tell you from experience that this is an inverter issue. Both the master and the slave have several transformers and sometimes you can't tell if they are damaged or not. I would recommend testing the leads from the inverters to make sure which one of the two is the one causing the dim picture.

What is wrong with My Westing house LCD TV

It appears like the power supply is dying on your TV. There are capacitors that become defective and will need to be replace to restore the TV functionality.
Let me know if you need further assistance, I service these power supplies.

Westinghouse 47" hd lcd 1080p

It does not need to be a blown speaker to be causing the problem. The issue (unless you have a habit of running the TV at maximum volume) is more then likely in the audio circuit of the TV.
Since it is only 6 months old, I would be straight onto Westinghouse to have it repaired under warranty.
