    Thanks, for your help. Which solder joint would you say? I have also heard that it could be a bad power supply but, that has been replaced already. Westinghouse has swapped out tv's with me but the same problem started happening again. I think that this is a lemon model. Westinghouse has tried to say that it is simething in my house that is causing this problem but, I have other tv's that work fine. Thanks for your advice I will look for it.

    I have the same problem too!! Flickering lines on the whole screen. They come and go when they want. We can't even watch tv. It is so annoying. I know for sure I will never buy another Westinghouse product. And I am going to research the next tv I buy.

    as soon as i turn it on or 5min later the picture flickers or rolls until it finally go"s blank

    I have the same problem - after 4-5 minutes the picture starts to roll, often goes blank, scrolls again and may or may not come back on. Saved for a long time to buy a new flat screen and have nothing but problems with it. The cable people changed out the cable box, checked all my connections and concluded it was not with them. Hate to throw it away, when the picture is on - it's great! - but getting really frustrated. pvb

Sounds like a dry solder joint. When the tv is on for 4/5 mins the crack warms up and the gap spreads. When you turn off it cools and when it warms up it starts again.

    Its really hard to say which joint but i would guess that its between power supply and mainboard. As it affects total power not just pic or sound or signal

No power Westinghouse LD4655BX

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Vertical colour bars

The problem is in the LCD controller board is overheated because the power supply unit is at the bottomof the TV and the heat rises upward to the vent on the top of the TV. You can verify that is hest problrm by running TV with the back removed and have a small fan blowing on the top secdtion of the TV where the LCD controller is. This how I fixed my scrambled picture after warm up (I added heat sinks to the IC on the LCD controller board) :
You can try it if the board was not badly damaged already by the heat. My has been running great for over a month now.

Our 4 year old Westinghouse LTV32W3HD starts to fast flicker in color after being on for 20 minutes or so. This condition cycles for a time before stabilizing. Can this be fixed for a reasonable sum?

Try running the TV with the back removed, it should run longer before flickering appears, more likely to be bad LCD controller, I fixed my scrambled picture by installing heat sinks on the ICs on the LCD controller,

Westinghouse 32 in LCD TV

I have had this problem now for about six months with my Niko OPT-3211W. After replacing the Inverter card, VIT70002.00 as suggested nothing changed. I then read that it may be a couple of capacitors in the power supply, but I do not have the skills needed to replace them, nor do I want to pay to fix it. The solution is simple... turn on the TV and wait two to five minutes, then turn off the main power. I suggest using a power strip. Then turn the power back on in two to five seconds. The TV will come back on and it works great from then on. I thought that it was a freak thing, but it keeps working.
