Dark Vertical Stripe on Right Edge of Screen

Just bought the Westinghouse 32W4 LCDTV/DVD combo this past June (2007). Within a few months of operation (I use it for TV/DVD as well as for my computer monitor), it started to develop a dark stripe about 3 inches from the right edge of the screen and about 1/2 inch wide that runs from top to bottom. It varies depending on the color of the background, from a light "tobacco" color against a solid white, to a dark indigo blue on TV mode. It has gotten darker with time, and now seems to almost exhibit signs of classical "burn in", although folks tell me this is nigh unto impossible on an LCD. It's noticible no matter what video mode I'm in (TV/DVD/Composite in for the PS2/VGA/etc.) Not sure if LCD's can or should be degaussed but I'm willing to try just about anything at this point.

    Very similar issue, The line appears about 3-4 inches from right. Not very wide - about 1cm thick. It is just dark compared to other area on the LCD. Really annoying... is there any resolution>?

I could fix this.  I played a white screen(by connecting my computer) through out the night and it got fixed by the next day.  It is basically because you play a lot of 4:3 ( default old TV ratio) video. Always make sure to play everything in "overscan" mode.

I experienced the same approx. 1/2" vertical stripe on a Viewsonic vx1945 and ATI Radeon x1050 video adapter on Vista Business SP1, but the stripe appeared along the left edge of the screen, instead of right edge. I then temporarily decreased the monitor resolution, and the stripe went away. I then increased the monitor resolution back to its original setting, and the stripe did not re-appear. So, that was the 'fix' in my situation, hope this helps.

If back light on inverters used are good---most likely a problem with the main board that controls all information and the screen as well.

Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC widescreen DVD Combo


Hi Mouse999. From reading a bit, it seems that there's no region free hacks for the built in dvd player in that specific model. A solution for you, would be to purchase a standalone dvd player, one that is region free or one that has a region free hack available, and to connect it to that tv. If you're in europe and your tv is pal, you also need to have a dvd player that will read both Pal and NTSC video dvd's ! If that doesn't help, please be more specific, i'll be glad to help. Thanks, cheebster.

How to remove dvd drive for Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC 32.02 in. HDTV LCD TV/DVD Combo


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Westinghouse-LTV-32w4-HDC-TVs-manual/id/278ci973/t/2/
First you would have to get a service manual, this shows you all you need to know about the unit. Without it, it is very difficult to even remove the case. but once inside, it is basically a simple task, to find the drive, remove the fastenings, and the Cable, obtain an EXACT replacement HDD, and reverse the procedure, it may pay to format the HDD first, FAT32, I believe, although your manual will be more specific.

32" flat screen Westinghouse TV


Hello, it sounds like you need to replace the inverter board on this unit. I would recommend opening the unit from the back cover, get the part # for the inverter board (long green board normally running accross the edge of the TV) and go to www.shopjimmy.com, they should have it in stock and if not you can try www.invertercentral.com, they should also have it.

Dark vertical line(s) on Lcd tv


Most likely it's the LCD panel failure. You can replace the panel if you can find a spare part. But the new panel may cost you as much as to buy a new tv. Hope that will help you.

Sounds like pixel problems, this could be a bad panel or board inside tv. I would contact manufacturer and see if they have policy with bad pixel panel. Even with out of warranty try anyways.

Westinghouse ltv 32w4 hdc 32.02 in. hdtv lcd tv / dvd combo


My 42" Westinghouse HDMI inputs just stopped working. I thought it was the TW Explorer 4250HDC issue so I got a new one from TW. Still said no signal from HDMI. So, I shut the TV down and pulled the power cord out of the back. I waited a few seconds and reconnected the pwr cord. The TV "re-booted" so to say and now the HDMI inputs work. I think TVTEK has the right idea that it is firmware/software related. In the mean time, you might want to give that a try.
