Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
My Westinghouse LCD 30 inch remote stopped working. Had to turn it on at the TV (reminded me when we had only 3 channels you got up to change). Then eventually the screen went black but had sound. Then no power no nothing.
After reading on here I thought the solder connections had gone bad. So..... I bought a soldering iron. I laid the TV on it's front and took 3 screws out of the back panel. That is as far as I got because I couldn't figure out how to get the cover off. So I plugged iot back in and it worked like a CHAMP. Only thing I can figure at this point it was somehow coming uplugged on the back of the TV.
Regardless, I feard the worst and whate4ver it was is ok now.... been working good for 2 weeks.
I know it sounds crazy but I'll take the results.
Hope this helps someone else......
If you have no idea what you're doing, NEVER open up a TV, especially if you're planning on SOLDERING!
Even after it's been unplugged for several hours, if you touch it in the wrong place you will be knocked on your ***!!!
If you know nothing about TV's you wouldn't know even where to start looking once you opened it up.
Most likely what happened is an accumulation of dust in an high voltage area of the TV was shorting something out, and when you moved it around and tipped it up, some of that dust moved. In particular if someone smokes in the room with the TV, the dust tends to cling more and conduct more.
