If the red light of your Westinghouse lcd tv flashes, it could be only due to the power supply issues..

Since you have heard popping sound before the tv goes off, we can suspect the issue with the power supply..

Just open the back panel of your television and check for any burnt or swollen capacitor, you have to observe more carefully, because the capacitor once burnt will no leave any black mark or burnt signifcance, it would have either leaked or bulged, Check each and every capacitor for this significance...

Changing the power supply board would definetly solve your issue...

If you have not heard the popped sound, we can suspect the timer to be switched on, beacuse when the timer is switched on, the red lisght flashed, but since you heard the pop sound, it must be with the power supply board...

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
Thanks for using FixYa!

The picture on my Westinghouse LCD TV looks like it's intermittently being scrambled. What's wrong?

The problem could be with your cable company, i have lived in 4 places around the country within the last 4 years, thanx to the military, anyway since cable companies have switched entirely to digital cable boxes and have tried to cram as much HD programming as possible to keep up with the amount carried by dish, any little communication that occurs creates a digitally distorted image. Now if you have the dish, it could be the weather and 1000 other variables not cause by your TV and equipment.

Unable to program cable channels on westinghouse lcd tv

There is some system reset to set the tv back to default settings. Also some boxes are picky and want the tv to be on chanel3 or 4 for the scan.

Westinghouse 1080P 42" LCD TV - HDMI stopped working

I know this is late, but this happens frequently. If anyone else has the same problem try unplugging the TV for 60 seconds. Plug it back in and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds. That will reset the TV.
You should see the Westinghouse logo come up and the HDMI should work. This has happened twice with my TV in 1 year.

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.

After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)
