Question about Westinghouse LVM-37w1 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Red picture I just bought this TV from someone who claims he only had this LCD panel TV for about 1 year. When you power the TV up it's usually fine for about 1 min and then it goes slowly to a redish backgroud color. While watching it switches from red to normal ( black background) and back to red. I tried adjusting the settings but no luck. The other colors are fine( blue, green, yellow etc) and the pic is pretty clear. You can still watch TV but its starting to bother me. Is there anything i can do? I heard taking the front panel off certain TV's and adjusting it that way could help. Westinghouse is not the easiest TV to get repaird. I called around and no one is authorized to even get parts. Will this be pricy? Thanks

    red shadows-This would happen every now and then but it's ALWAYS now.

    I have no idea what to do but I think I'll go back to Best Buy and see if they'll stand by the product they sell. I bought this LCD 2 1/2 yrs. ago so we'll see!

I would just call westinghouse and lie saying that you are still under warranty. Everything I have read about their tech support screams poor communication, confusion, and lack of manpower, so it would probably work.

Very well could be the circuit board. What you describe is VERY common in newer tv's. The company says this supposedly this will be fixed in the new firmware they claim will be sent out soon. The only way you shouldn't experience it, is if I hook nothing to the HDMI input.

My solution is: You have entered a diagnostic color test. With the TV powered on, hold the 'Menu' & 'Enter' together, then press the power button.

This sound like you are having problems with the power supply board. Since you are getting a momentary picture and sound the fuses are good but TVs today have "shorts" and "overvoltage" circuitry build in that will shut it down on errors. Someone knowledgeable in electronics will have to isolate the exact cause.

I would take it back. I know from purchasing an Insignia LCD from them a while back, the TV just died after about 4 or 5 months. They ended up offering me another TV or with store credit. I took the store credit and chose another TV. I also did not have a warranty. I was told since it was Insignia (which is a Best Buy house brand) that replacing it was not a problem. Good luck.

No picture or sound. Red light comes on then goes off.


I had the same problem with my LTP227W and it is also about 4 years old. Took it in to be fixed and they found it was two capacitors in the power supply. Parts for this TV are not available anymore but they were able to repair the power supply. The TV works fine now. Hopefully I can get another four years out of this. Repair cost was $150.

The unit will not power up. I tried using a different power cord to see if the old cord was bad. A small red light turned on for afew seconds, I heard some beeping, then the red light went out.


Take it back to the store you bought it from.
contact Samsung about this model. and politely demand a recall/file class action claim, or for the manufacturer to describe this model as a 1-3year disposable LCD TV
