SOURCE: My Westinghouse won't turn on, please help!

Ok, believe it or not, i am a 13 year old boy. ya i know whatever i oviousely know the problem and u don't so don't think i'm stupid. i found a westinghouse lcd at a dump, and thought i should try it out. it worked the very first time, and then when i unplugged it and used it with another plug, it wouldn't turn on. LISTEN GUYS, WE ALL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM, AND DID THE SAME THING. WE ALL *UNPLUGGED THE TV*! this is that you have to do: unplug the AC adapter or power adapter from the tv, and from the wall. most likely its not the cord that is the problem. the tv needs to cool. leave the tv with on wires in it for about 3 hours, and then try again. if atleast 5 hours pasts and it still wont work, then you have blown a fuse.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.
caps from www.digikey.com cost less than a buck a piece typically plus shipping, and usually arrive next business day.

SOURCE: LVM-37w1 after 5 minutes of viewing, picture and

I saw this fix posted on another blog by a fellow named Patrick. I tried it today and it it worked. It fixed my Westinghouse lvm-37w1. Basically disassemble the back of the TV (removing all the screws on the edges and middle). Remove screws holding bottom speaker and stand. There are 2 chrome rods extending down. There are small screws inside holding them on. You can turn the rods and unscrew the screws but need a small screw driver to put them back on. Remove the black cover on the back. remove the plates on the lower middle section. You will expose a printed circuit card. unplug wires and unscrew 4 screws holding it in. Remove it, turn it upside down and inspect the solder joints near the lower middle (especially under the gray relay on the other side). I found 4 solder joints that were cracked. Resolder the larger solder joints that are cracked or look bad (small solder joints are too delicate). Put it back to gether and it should work now. Mine works great. No more black screen with no sound.12_2_2011_5_11_21_am.jpg

Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

There is a fault with the power supply inside your tv, It could be a simple solder joint problem or could be a more serious issue.

I finally managed to solve this problem by unplugging everything - scarts - HDD cables - power etc and left it for an hour. When I turned it back on again the problem had sorted itself out.

Tv would not turn on and kept turning it's self off when it finally did load was on for 3 mins then a loud pop was heard,TV went black then continued to turn it's self on and off again this did not stop...


The tv has a little door at the right or left side. that is the lamp place (refer to the user's manual to replace the lamp of the unit). make sure you replace the lamp when the tv is unppluged of the power. safety always first.

My Westinghouse won't turn on, please help!


I had the same problem...turned out it wasnt the TV at all. It was actually the wall socket. Seems I had to many things plugged into one wall supply. (i.e. xbox 360, wii, audio reciever, dvd player, vcr, etc...) after switching some other items to a different socket my TV works GREAT!! I hope your problem is this simple!

Lamp problem or else?


You need to get the ballast repair kit #LSUC0002 and replace the parts to your ballast.

I have the exact same TV, did the above this past weekend, and the TV works like new.

You need to know how to solder though. It's not that hard.

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
