Westinghouse LCD TV freeze

I'm having trouble with my Westinghouse LCD TV freezing. I see that others have the same problem. Has anyone come up with a solution to this? What about Westinghouse? Are they working on the problem?

    The television freezes. You have to unplug it, then it is working again. It happens about once every month or two.

    Picture freezes when changing channels rapidly. The only cure is to pull the power plug. Unit works normally when power is restored.

    I have the same problem! Unplug is the only solution so far!

    I am having the same thing happen to me...except that this is an everyday occurrence. It's gotten to the point that I brought my old cube TV (9" or so lol) into the room just out of frustration.

    Example, I'll play a game of Madden on the xbox andit will freeze on me at least twice during the game.

    I've tried the unplugging thing and that doesnt always work either. I have found that I have to turn it off and let it sit for a while before trying to turn it back on, it usually will work then. It's just so frustrating, when a game of football that should be played in under an hour takes two and a half because the TV won't work

Our LTV-27w6 27 in. HDTV LCD Television is good but the picture keeps stoping for a few seconds then keeps going again, (screen freeze). Is this possabile or is it my cable box mabe tk RJ rj2500@live.com


Easy way to find out is to use another source like dvd movie etc. If it does not freeze then it is cable signal issue, which is a common problem with digital channels freezing.

White Westinghouse flat screenTV freezes up and hums.


Sometimes if you just press on your overscan button on the remote and make the picture a little bigger or smaller the humming noise and freezing of the picture will actually stop.

Westinghouse LTV-32w4 HDC - adjustment buttons unresponsive, volume drop, etc.


plug your cable connection to a vcr "in" then run a seperate cable cord from the vcr "out" to your television (which should be on channel 3 or 4) depending on your vcr setting and use the vcr to control the channel so when your westinghouse freezes and becomes unresponsive you could still change the channel and so on through your vcr and tv acts like a monitor works for me. N.B be sure to set the volume and so on before it freezes which could be like a 1min window from turning your tv on

The tv got a heat sensor, the only way to fix tv , if you are a tv tech, is to buy a bottle of "freez it" spray small sections of tv in side. It will be clearly where the fault is if you spray correct part that give trouble. Replace that part and Tv will be Ok.

The problem is a software bug in their tuner. The tuner defect lockup problem only happens for the DTV over the air channels.

Unfortunately Westinghouse is not admitting to it as it would cost them a lot of money for a recall. Westinghouse fixed the problem on newer TVs but decided to do nothing on the ones they already sold hoping the customer A) would not notice in their 12 month warranty period because they have cable, satellite, or analog over the air (old TV channels, not the new DTV digital ones), or B) or the customer would think they had an antenna problem as customer service was directed to tell them that when they called in for the problem, or C) customer service was also told to tell customers "that was normal operation for DTV to lock up" with the belief that some stupid customers would beleive it. D) the In the event the customer insisted that it was a bug they would then send a RMA number by email (very slowly 7+ days later) hoping the customer would just forget about it. Then when the TV was sent in they would then replace it with a newer 32 inch TV.

This is a great class action lawsuit waiting to happen. This buggy tuner is in several models with over 300,000 TVs sold with the problem. Anyone know a good class action lawyer?
