Your television's back light inverter board is dead. It is a common problem on LCD tvs. For a set of this size there is usually only one inverter board but I have seen two(Master inverter and slave inverter) in some sets. If you have the prior experience in dealing with electronics and if you want to do it yourself , let me know and I will tell you where you can get the part . Should not cost more than 100$ unless they are embedded in the panel itself.

Hello. this is a serious problem that even Westinghouse does not want to admit. here is a link of interest to you http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/westinghouse-lcd-tv-c63362.html

Back to your tv, if it is over 3 years old just replace it. The cost of a repair is not worth the effort. New 32 inch LCD tv's are better and cheaper than before.
