Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w4 32.02 in. LCD HDTV
The picture on the TV is fine when I first turn it on but after 5-10 minutes it will start to scramble periodically, being totally unviewable. None of the horizontal or vertical adjustments seem to clear this up. This has been going on for months. The TV is about 3 years old but it is turned on only about 1/2 dozen times during the year so it really hasn't had much use. I would appreciate any help you could offer. Not sure if I should just toss the TV and buy a new one or try to get it fixed.
Before you bother to read the text below, you might be better served looking at this thread:
If you aren't nauseated yet, continue with my original reply:
If the picture seems 'pixelated,' broken up into randomly sized and placed blocks, then it is losing synchronization with the digital signal coming in. This is certainly repairable and may be due to lousy assembly quality rather than a failed part. Most of our modern sets are assembled by robots but there is a degree of manual soldering still to be done and this can result in 'cold' solder joints that can fracture and fail due to heating and cooling of the innards of a set.
Unfortunately, unless you have a semi-retired TV service man in your neighborhood who is already financially independent, the labor costs could run fairly high for this kind of service since it requires methodical searching of the circuitry and could eat up some time.
