Question about Westinghouse SK-26H590D Television
Hello. My (14 month old) Westinghouse SK-26H590D completely stopped working for me last night in the middle of watching a program. At the same time, my Comcast HD box displayed an error message "DV1". Also at that time the light in the built in DVD slot was illuminating different colors every few minutes - orange, violet, amber, blue (standard color when powered on), but I still couldn't receive any picture. I removed the HDMI cable for a few minutes, and had Comcast send a Reset signal to the box. The cable box is now working normally, but I now cannot get any signs of life from the TV (even with the HDMI cable disconnectd). The TV appears completely dead at this point. Any suggestions?
You are not the only one facing this problem.there are many users facing this same problem in this model and brand of tv. this problem occurs when the 2200 micro-farad capacitor on the power supply gets shorted the tv gets completely dead. ------------- a defective 2200uf Capacitor on the power supply board. Take a look at the top of the capacitor it will be either buldged at or will look bit burned on its body. ---------- the cost of getting this done by a technician will cost you near to $100 including the capacitors cost. ---------- you can get this part at www.shopjimmy.com and the other is www.discount-merchant.com if you are familiar with opening the back of tv and removing the main board and then soldering the capacitor you can do it manually but its a long and tough procedure. ------- technicians help is advisable.but replacing the capacitor will solve the problem.---- this will help. --- thanks.please keep updated.pleasedo rate the solution if helped.thank you for using fixya.
