Westinghouse 32" LCD TV

My TV has a normal picture for about a half hour after it's turned on, then it shuts the video while the sound and power remain on. Turning it off will restore the video, but it shuts down again soon after.

Keeping a fan going behind the TV keeps the video on, so I figure it's an overheating problem. What's the fix?

    After approx 2 years I'm having the same issue. Go Westinghouse. I figured it's the board overheating. Anyone know where to order it?

I had nearly exactly the same problem. Like you, I noted that keeping a fan going solves the problem, so i just went out and found a really small and silent fan that I could attach to the back of the tv. Since my TV had a USB port, I found a $10 USB-powered computer fan and attached it there. Full story at http://bottleworld.net/?p=193 . Hope that helps.

Problem with rca big sreen tv


First, try a hard reset.
You must unplug the power cord (turning off the set or the strip will not do it) for a couple of hours, then try again.
This will sometimes correct the problem
When it blinks off: Does the raster go dark or just the picture and the raster remain?
If the raster goes dark when it blinks off it means there is a loss of high voltage to the picture tube. High voltage repair is expensive. It may be a failing flyback transformer that is functional inside the horizontal deflection circuits.
If the raster stays on and you just lose video (picture information) then it may be a simple intermittent IC chip in the video board area. It may require a technician to determine which IC and how to replace it or the parts associated with it, but probably not terribly expensive to repair.

Sound but no video


Sound like you have a faulty inverter. The next time the picture turns off, turn off the lights in the room. Take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you still see a faint picture, more than likely you have a fault with the inverter.

Turn on TV and picture and sound are great for about 60 seconds. Then the picture disappears but sound remains.


I would start with checking the power supply 12vdc output, make sure it is stable with no ripple. If the power supply checks out fine, I would then suspect the main board.

LCD circuits overheated shut down the video. Leave the TV on standby for a week or more to see if the ccfl lamps come back on. You may need service.

It sounds to me like it's stuck in service mode.There is a button combination with the remote to return it to normal. I would call Vizio support and they should be able to help you.

I think it's a combination like [volume -], [channel -] and power but I could be wrong.

I have a 32" TV/DVD combo westinghouse LCD TV. When I turn the TV on I get no picture. There is sound. DVD player does not show picture either, I have sound but no picture.


This is a backlight or inverter Problem. Based on the model you have, I am guessing the inverter is defective.

Inverter is defined as the board in the TV that supplies power for the flourescent lights inside the LCD TV that provide backlighting for the TV's Display
