Question about Westinghouse W32701 27 in. LCD HDTV
The screen is dark. it turns blue for a split second then goes dark. the sound is fine and i can change channels. i called westinghouse and they had no solution. i unplugged and nothing. should i start shopping? westingwouse said it could be a problem with the display panel, whatever that is. HELP!!
This sounds like bad inverter board.
Every time LCD goes from Standby to ON state - Inverter Board resets it’s self for approx. ~1 sec, during which time you should see blue screen.
Problem is that board detects problem with voltage/current on one of the seven transformers and shuts down automatically...
As to the costs:
- BestBuy repair service approx.. $600.00
- Buy new Inverter Board & repair LCD your self approx. $200.00
- Another option is to repair Inverter Board, but parts are sometimes hard to get...
Now for the DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME or AT YOUR OWN RISK solution:
-The cheapest method is to bypass protection circuit, by transferring good signal from working transformer (using 10nF/250V capacitor) to detection circuit at the faulty transformer.
Then watch movies on your LCD unlit BAD transformer totally BURNS-OUT.
This will be obvious by dark stripe about 1"-2" tall across your display.
Hopefully the only damage will be to the transformer and not CCFL (light behind your LCD), but when you are faced with a choice of using it for a while longer or throwing your LCD to garbage right now... to me this choice was simple.
