Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a westinghouse flat screen- model # sk-32h240s. Its about 4 or 5 years old. When I turn on the tv, the picture will come up, but then the screen goes blank. I still have sound though. Is this the t-con board, or something else? Can it be fixed at home, or is fixing it just not worth it?

Oyu need to check the backlight lamp of the LCD monitor It's merely to be busted and needs replacement or the inverter board that gives a high voltage power supply to it.you have to open the back cover of your TV and visually inspect the connection socket between the lamp and the inverter board because this is high voltage a cold solder/loose conection happens so you need to resolder them.The input voltage of the inverterboard is 24vdc and the output is 200vac be carefull not to touch it with your hand during power on.replacement of lamps is available online at shopjimmy.com
thank you.

I have a Westinghouse SK-32H240S 32" flat screen


First when tapping changes the picture you have somewhere a bad connection; in electrical board or wiring.
When the screen goes blank after a while means some capacitor is bad/old.

Our TV picture works fine then blacks out with audio continuing to work ok.Now after some time picture works ok for about 20 seconds the blacks out with audio continuing on OK.While we bought this in 2008...


I think you chose a Westinghouse Lemon, go this site and read all of the negative reviews of this model;

http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/westinghouse-sk-32h240s/4852-6482_7-32429419-2.html?tag=userReviews;page

Here's just one of the reviews;"best chunk of aluminum i ever had the fortune to buy"by stevecox25 on June 11, 2009-->
"Horrible customer service on a worse television" by westinghousecrap on March 20, 2009 Pros: Good picture once it is properly adjusted.
Cons: Low quality audio, had the TV for 10.5 months and the picture went out, sent the TV at MY expense to TX, and I've been waiting for 2 months, and customer service can only say that there is a "delay". And they don't send a new TV, it's a rebuild.
Summary: Please don't waste your money on this TV, spend a little more on a different brand and save yourself the headaches I've had. I'll never purchase a Westinghouse product again. Customer service has been no help, and their answers are vague at best. Learn from my nightmare, NCAA march madness on a old 19" TV because my Westinghouse quit working 2 months ago and they still haven't replaced it.

I have a westinghouse tv model number SK-32H240S no picture


It seems that your unit has some sort of Video side, PSU fault, or a problem to the Video section that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.
