Question about Westinghouse LVM-37w1 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
When I turn on my 37w1 the TV briefly shows a picture and then goes into the power-save/standby mode where the light on the TV turns orange. If I change the input the picture does not return but if I turn the TV off and back on, the TV will have changed to a different input. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Power suplly. In my case I should have done research on a lot of
things before purchase - westinghouse doe snot acknowled any power
supplly uissue but they would say that, and this is a direct quote from
them, "Westinghouse's failure rate is less than 2%, which is great by
industry standards. Unfortunately, when you sell millions of
televisions, 2% is still a lot of televisions. There have been no
recalls on this model (or any of our models), but it's not surprising
to find a similiar issue on more than one of millions of televisions."
In other words they calim there is nothing that is really their fault. However the first thing the repair guy said before he even looked at it was "Power supply". He opened it up and tested - power suplly. However to complicate matters more I made is huge mistake of buying into a scam offered by eCost via Service.net . A two year, 100%, in home service, warranty. Bottom line is since June 8 my Monitors has not worked and sine July 7 it has been sitting untouched, not here, but at a rprair facily over 50 miles away. As of yesterday August 7, I was told Westinghouse no longer makes or provides power supplies for this unit. On top of that the repair facility will not return it to me unless i pick it up why? Because it can't be fixed and because service.net will not pay them to return it to me.
So solution at thi point for anyone with power supply issues is to try and repiar it yourself. And then in the future never purchase anything from westinghouse again. (And if offered any sort of 100% all cost covere din home warrabnty from service.net run away screaming)
