Westinghouse LVM-37w1 Goes immediately into standby mode

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)

My 15 month Celcus LCD423D913FHD tv will not turn on. The standby light is lit and will flicker but will not power up the tv. What is the likely problem?


Fault with its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

LVM-37w1 after 5 minutes of viewing, picture and sound go off. Blue power light turns orange. attempts to turn on TV are unsuccessful. Blue light immediately turns orange.


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

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

LAMP KEEP BLOWING OUT. TOSHIBA 65 HM167


I had this same problem with my Mitsubishi it is when you have fast on mode set it pre warms the bulb to much. I turneed it off and now the bulb has lasted much longer Setting the Power-On Mode feature You can select either Power-Saving or Fast mode. If you select Power-Saving mode and you turn off the TV, it can take several seconds for the picture to appear when you turn on the TV again. Power-Saving mode saves more power than Fast mode. See "Specifications" on page 66 for details. If you select Fast mode and the TV is turned off, the TV will stay in Standby mode for several minutes (see Note below). If the TV is turned on from Standby mode, the full picture appears immediately. To set the Power-On Mode feature: 1 Press Y and open the Setup menu. 2 Highlight Power-On Mode and press c. 3 Press b or B to select either Fast or Power-Saving and press T. Note: If Power-On Mode is set to Fast and you turn off the TV, the following will occur for a few minutes: • The screen (lamp) lights dimly; and • The fans continue to run. This is a function of the Power-On Fast Shutdown mode and is not a TV malfunction. If you do not prefer this, set the PowerOn Mode feature to Power-Saving. When the Power-On Mode feature is set to Power-Saving, if you repeatedly turn the TV on and off in a short period of time, the useful service life of the lamp may be shorter than the average useful service life (- page 63).
this is from your manual not my Mitsubishi please rate this answer if you felt it was useful.

Hello, I can assure you it is the inverter board on this unit. The T-CON board (controller) will only mess with your picture in different ways but you the way you describe the symptoms it is for sure your inverter board. The harders part wil be to find some, you should probably look in www.shopjimmy.com, or www.invertercentral.com.
