Sounds like she turned on one of the Closed Captioning options; not the standard CC style, but the style called Text. Jump into the menus and turn off the Closed Captioning, and all should well

My Westinghouse TV was working just fine, but stopped turning on after I had issues with the cable box. Those are resolved, but I can't get it to turn on. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?


Patience may be the key--It may be substrate charge phenomenon--
Disconnect everything from the TV, including power cord and all ins & outs and wait awhile (3 days is sufficient) to let the internal charges bleed off. Reconnect TV and try it again. It sounds like a power surge (or lightning strike nearby) jammed a temporary "substrate charge" onto TV's circuitry.

There is a method called a Power Scan this method allows you to search for all possible codes. Try this until you reach a code that carries all of the functions desired. If the TV mode button starts flashing rapidly during this process you have exhausted all possible codes.
Power Scan
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).

Close captioning


Hi ckay31,

If your remote is not allowing you to navigate through the menus, you may need to replace the batteries.

If this does not work, in the meantime you should be able to navigate the menus using the menu button on the TV. The Closed Captioning option should display under Channel Settings.

If you are still unable to get your remote to function properly, I recommend you contact Westinghouse Customer Service at (866) 287-5555. You may also view your product's manual at http://www.westinghousedigital.com/pdf/15_User_Manual.pdf

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

White Westinghouse 32 in Issue


Turn off the closed caption portion in the menu . The text 1-2-3 or 4 is on blanking out the center of your screen . The closed caption button could be on your remote and is being accidently pushed . Good luck
