Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Open Question


PLEASE HELP! My tv goes from color to balck and white. At first it would only happen when I would watch showtime or some of the paperview channels. But yesterday it was even happening on my local channels. The place I bought this tv from came to look at it and claim it is a cable related issue. They suggested maybe getting HD TV instead of digital cable (which is what I have now) but is it really the cable or is it the tv? Oh and this is the second tv I have had this happen on. They changed it out for me once before. Please help.

    Same issue here. I have a 26" TV. Found this post:

    It only happens on the higher channels. Takes exactly 42 seconds to go gray, and to me, that says there is nothing wrong with the TV, but the cable. For the life of me, I can't get color though...any help out there?

I had the same problem....turned out it was the "lvds" cable that runs from the mainboard to the lcd controller board. Simply remove the tape that holds it to the back of the backlight housing and also remove the foil shielding tape from the connector on the lcd controller board.

Watch my cable TV on my g4

You cannot watch your cable TV on your Android tablet the way you watch it on your TV. You can watch specific channels (CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox News, HBO, Showtime, etc.) that have apps that will allow you to watch on your tablet. For example, HBO's app is called HBO GO and Showtime's is called Showtime Anywhere. Go to the Play Store on your tablet, search for apps for your favorite cable TV channels, download and install them. When you use the app, you will be asked which is your cable TV provider (choose Charter from the list that pops up) and to enter your subscriber ID (you have to get that ID by creating an account on the Charter TV's web site before using the app). Sit back, relax and enjoy !

Trying to hookup vhs analog player to hd proscan

your toshiba player should have output composite video and audio which are color coded Yellow for video, red and white for audio same goes for proscan hdtv. connect between the two keeping in mind color of cables. If the toshiba player is really old you can connect the RF cable output to antenna input to the proscan tv and watch taped programs from the player on channel 3 of the proscan tv. If then you want to keep the hookup and still watch HDTV connect the antenna to the toshiba vcr and when you shut off the vcr you can now watch the hdtv channels as usual because now you are bypassing the antenna to the Proscan tv. Hope this Helps..

I have Aiwa TV MODEL No. TV-A149
The problem that I am suddenly facing is that I can't change channels or volume or use any other function. I can't even turn it off with remote control.

Its stuck randomly on a particular channel that I was watching at that point of time.

Along with that channel it now shows a message in flashing red color that reads :-

Now when I press ''Display'' button on remote control volume goes off and this code is shown :-
S123 K234 Y
100 000 0

The numbers in the second line can be navigated by ''CH+'' button and changed between 0 and 1 by ''Vol+'' button.

I really don't know anything about this. So, please help me out of this problem.
