Question about Westinghouse LVM-37w1 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have had this problem since about superbowl time. If I powered the set off, waited 15-20 seconds, and then powered on, it would work again for a while. Repeating this drill a number of times would lead to stable operation. We resorted to a course of turning on some XM music from DirecTV when we weren't watching. I tried a technician knowledgeable on this set, and it would have cost $500-800 to repair the set. We learned from different forums that the likely culprit was either the power supply board or the LCD controller. We also picked up the rumor that Westinghouse had quit making replacement part. It would seem that the management of this organization has a death wish. TO THE CHASE: shopjimmy.com is now selling parts from canibalized sets. They have a non-DOA warranty and a good return policy. A power supply from "Jimmy" solved my problem. I have one important hint: To remove the back, take out the obvious screws and the base. Then remove the ~5/8" rods that protrude from the bottom. There is a screw up inside each rod.

Add one more to the list of victims of the WestingLouse company. Bought this POS monitor in 2006. Paid for extended warranty. Pop goes the screen. After you screw around turning it on and off it eventually won't come on again at all. It is the Power supply board. It can be removed with a screwdriver and a lot of time. Called Best Buy and they said they had no record of my warranty (of course). They are not making power supply boards for this model anymore. You can get one through ebay if you're lucky (or maybe not so). These are canabalized from old monitors and therefore are a "Pop" away from failing themselves. Remeber their guarantee is no DOA. So in a week or month you will be stareing at that blank screen again. This beast has been sitting around my livingroom for months. Can you spell CLASS ACTION? Westinghouse - Never again!

Power supply issue. Unlike many of you I (thought) I had
purchase a 2 year extended warranty. I purchased this in June 2007. In
June 2008 the set died with the exact symptoms described here and
elswhere. The extreme short version of this is that westinghoue refuses
to hep however did admit, sort of, that (And this is a driect quote
from them to me) "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." They also said they provide
part to anyone via their dub sidstriboutors. However yesterday, August
7, I was informed Westinghouse no longer provides power supllies for
this therefore it can not be fixed.
As for the bait and switch warranty I purchased - it is a long story but short version is upon purchase it caid if anything went wrong it was covered 100%. If it coulod ne be fixed it owuld be replaced - 100%. It also said that if it needed to be shipped all cost woyld be covered 100%. So here I am with a monitor sitting in a repair shop that will not be returned to me uless I PICK IT UP because service.net will not pay for it to be returned. I will not get a replacement set but am getting a "buy out" offer of about 570.00 I can use for anything I want. Within one minute of being told it could not be repaired I purchased the power supply myself however unless I get my Monitor back that may be another waste of money.
So solution to everyone at this point is - 1> Fix it yourself 2> Try to find a legal team who does class action lawsuits and file against Westinghouse for putting out units with faulty power supllies that now can not be fixed because they no longer make the power supllies 3> sit back and get reamed again by compnaies who think we won't fight back. I am alsready fighting back at least to the repir shop who is holding my monitor hostage and Service.net who is selling scam warranties.
