This sounds like bad inverter board.
Every time LCD goes from Standby to ON state - Inverter Board resets it’s self for approx. ~1 sec, during which time you should see blue screen.
Problem is that board detects problem with voltage/current on one of the seven transformers and shuts down automatically...
As to the costs:
- BestBuy repair service approx.. $600.00
- Buy new Inverter Board & repair LCD your self approx. $200.00
- Another option is to repair Inverter Board, but parts are sometimes hard to get...
Now for the DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME or AT YOUR OWN RISK solution:
-The cheapest method is to bypass protection circuit, by transferring good signal from working transformer (using 10nF/250V capacitor) to detection circuit at the faulty transformer.
Then watch movies on your LCD unlit BAD transformer totally BURNS-OUT.
This will be obvious by dark stripe about 1"-2" tall across your display.
Hopefully the only damage will be to the transformer and not CCFL (light behind your LCD), but when you are faced with a choice of using it for a while longer or throwing your LCD to garbage right now... to me this choice was simple.
Good LUCK.

Power suplly. In my case I should have done research on a lot of things before purchase - westinghouse doe snot acknowled any power supplly uissue but they would say that, and this is a direct quote from them, "Westinghouse's failure rate is less than 2%, which is great by industry standards. Unfortunately, when you sell millions of televisions, 2% is still a lot of televisions. There have been no recalls on this model (or any of our models), but it's not surprising to find a similiar issue on more than one of millions of televisions."

In other words they calim there is nothing that is really their fault. However the first thing the repair guy said before he even looked at it was "Power supply". He opened it up and tested - power suplly. However to complicate matters more I made is huge mistake of buying into a scam offered by eCost via Service.net . A two year, 100%, in home service, warranty. Bottom line is since June 8 my Monitors has not worked and sine July 7 it has been sitting untouched, not here, but at a rprair facily over 50 miles away. As of yesterday August 7, I was told Westinghouse no longer makes or provides power supplies for this unit. On top of that the repair facility will not return it to me unless i pick it up why? Because it can't be fixed and because service.net will not pay them to return it to me.

So solution at thi point for anyone with power supply issues is to try and repiar it yourself. And then in the future never purchase anything from westinghouse again. (And if offered any sort of 100% all cost covere din home warrabnty from service.net run away screaming)

The problem is a software bug in their tuner. The tuner defect lockup problem only happens for the DTV over the air channels.

Unfortunately Westinghouse is not admitting to it as it would cost them a lot of money for a recall. Westinghouse fixed the problem on newer TVs but decided to do nothing on the ones they already sold hoping the customer A) would not notice in their 12 month warranty period because they have cable, satellite, or analog over the air (old TV channels, not the new DTV digital ones), or B) or the customer would think they had an antenna problem as customer service was directed to tell them that when they called in for the problem, or C) customer service was also told to tell customers "that was normal operation for DTV to lock up" with the belief that some stupid customers would beleive it. D) the In the event the customer insisted that it was a bug they would then send a RMA number by email (very slowly 7+ days later) hoping the customer would just forget about it. Then when the TV was sent in they would then replace it with a newer 32 inch TV.

This is a great class action lawsuit waiting to happen. This buggy tuner is in several models with over 300,000 TVs sold with the problem. Anyone know a good class action lawyer?

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.

There are several fixes for this problem.

1) You can unplug the TV for a few minutes and try again.

2) You can turn off the TV then hold the Power button down for at least 10 seconds (resets the processor)

3) Go to the settings menu, select factory reset.


Good luck

TV shows a large white square upon turning on, almost as large as the screen. Nothing else will happen.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.
