Question about Westinghouse LCM-22w2 Television

1 Answer

Monitor shuts off for a few seconds when i play games or watch videos.

I have a Westinghouse LCM-22w3, and when I play games the monitor will go black for a few seconds then come back on, It also does this when I watch videos sometimes, It does this the most when i'm playing game though.
It's not even a month old yet.

    The monitor shuts off at random times; only for a second and always comes back on. It just suddenly turns black, then goes right back to what I was viewing. Also, when I change it to Text Mode or economy Mode, it makes an irritating buzzing noise.

I fixed it! It's the power supply board. The bad news is you need to solder.

The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supply board. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCD flatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder, or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take out the yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specifications for each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to the electronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can go over the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitance value matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net for advice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really should replace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the power plug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To my delight, the white screen of death went away and it was working as new!

I saved a ton of money fixing this, it's definitely worth learning how to solder to do this.

How do I convert a Westinghouse 22" LCM-22w3 DVI/VGA LCD Monitor into an HDTV?


Dear Amy,

Normally, monitors do not have tuning electronics for capturing TV signals.
Therefore, consider the monitor as a "dumb" unit that only displays information coming from your computer. Also, this unit does not have a HDMI input, but only VGA.
So, you are fated to have this monitor connected to your computer, always.
Now, you may find good software that will "tune" the TV signals from streaming at the Internet and show whatever is being broadcast. The same way you can access YouTube and watch videos these TV tuners will get the streaming signals the TV stations send via Internet (not all do that) and watch the channel in your PC/monitor
Since I do not have additional information about the computer you use I cannot give you other ideas
I hope I have helped you.

Can a westinghouse lcm-22w3 be used as a tv


Yes, you will just need to have the right output on your cable box with some conversion. (eg. if you have RGB out of the back of the box you will have to get a break out cable that goes from that to VGA for the back of your monitor.

My westinghouse LCD LCM22w3 is not turning on. The switch light will turn on for a few seconds but then turns off. I have no imput signal


Helo,

This is a very common problem with the LCM-22W3 monitors. The problem is caused by a failure of the filter capacitors in the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to repair the monitor. This is a very easy repair.

I suggest you test your computer by using a different known good monitor. If it works ok you will know your Westinghouse has a fault and if it doesn't you will know there is a problem with your computer (video card maybe?)..

Make sure that all three screws are removed from the back of the display. This is in addition to the four that hold the stand on.
