Question about Westinghouse LVM-37w1 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

I turn on the tv and all I get is a black screen, I can't see menu or anything. I hear the sound just fine but can't see a picture. I turned it off then on again and even unplugged it for a bit and its still not working. Doing that made it work for maybe 1 second. Even turning on my xbox 360 didnt help it work! What can I do to fix it? I havnt even had this tv for a year.

It is either the backlight inverter board went out or the power supply feeding the inverter board went out, look at the power supply first since it is easy to get to. Look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Toshiba 32a43 32' picture garbled mess


If you can get the tv to display the blue blackground(usually happens when there is no antenna or cable feed to tv) check to see if the whole screen is a solid blue, if it shows discolored areas around the screen then you might have to "demag" the screen. See if you can rent a demad coil from a tv shop and with tv on turn the coil in circular movements all over the front of screen till blue is solid.good luck!
