Question about Westinghouse SK-26H590D Television

1 Answer

Hello.\r\nMy Westinghouse SK-26H590D completely

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 and the other is 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.

Does sk-26h590d have HD connection

It might have a built-in HDTV tuner or it may require installation of an HD converter box. If you see decimal channels such as 3.1, 29.2, etc. you have an HDTV tuner. If you see channel numbers without decimals such as 3, 29, etc. you will need to install a converter box

Have the actual remote itself tested---most shops will do it for free--if remote is bad you know and if tests good suspect the remote receiver in the set on the front is bad.

The last possible reason is some sets have a lockout feature that disables the remote feature inside the TV---not real common but no unheard.

My Westinghouse 26H590D widescreen with DVD combo all of a sudden is messed up on color. It seems like the red is gone so human lips look blue, what I know from other tvs should be red come across yel

Looks like some dry solder, dry or leaky capacitors in board. Anyhow, first of all check and ensure that your input device, cables, connectors and jacks are ok and there are no loose contacts. Try working the TV on a DVD player and see. If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Most likely the laser lens was damaged when the 2 disks were jammed in. You must open the tv and check the status of the laser head and its lens, if it's faulty it will have to be replaced. Fortunately this is an unexpensive part.

I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV. Model # SK-26H590D. It will not scan channel 9. I have tried both the automatic scan and the find channel scan. It is hooked to a Phillips Mant 510 vhf/uhf indoor antenna...

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.
