Question about Westinghouse 26" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

Open Question

I have a Westinghouse, SK26H520S, 26 inch lcd tv that will not turn on. The blue power light, below the screen, is flashing blue at two to three second intervals. I have changed the batteries in the remote we use (a direct tv remote), as well as the remote from the tv itself. I have checked all connections and everything is plugged in correctly. This was on for two hours the night before last and was fine when I turned it off but I did see the power light flashing when I got up. I have also unplugged it for over an hour with no results. Arggg it is so frustrating when the manufactor that took your money for their product will not help! Thank you so much for listening to me rant. I will never buy another product form Westinghouse!

This sounds like bad inverter board.
Every time LCD goes from Standby to ON state - Inverter Board resets it’s self for approx. ~1 sec, during which time you should see blue screen.
Problem is that board detects problem with voltage/current on one of the seven transformers and shuts down automatically...
As to the costs:
- BestBuy repair service approx.. $600.00
- Buy new Inverter Board & repair LCD your self approx. $200.00
- Another option is to repair Inverter Board, but parts are sometimes hard to get...
Now for the DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME or AT YOUR OWN RISK solution:
-The cheapest method is to bypass protection circuit, by transferring good signal from working transformer (using 10nF/250V capacitor) to detection circuit at the faulty transformer.
Then watch movies on your LCD unlit BAD transformer totally BURNS-OUT.
This will be obvious by dark stripe about 1"-2" tall across your display.
Hopefully the only damage will be to the transformer and not CCFL (light behind your LCD), but when you are faced with a choice of using it for a while longer or throwing your LCD to garbage right now... to me this choice was simple.
Good LUCK.

SOURCE: westinghouse 32 inch screen goes blank

I had the exact same problem and I fixed my Westinghouse 32 inch by replacing the power supply. You can purchase it at
http://www.partstore.com/Part/Westinghouse+Digital+Electroni/Westinghouse+Digital/4900211680/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Westinghouse+Digital+Electroni&ModelBrandName=Westinghouse+Digital&ModelNumber=LTV32W1

I takes about 15 minutest to replace. Just take the back lower panel off and replace the power supply. Mine works like new now.

SOURCE: No power on Westinghouse LTV-46w1 Television

This kind of failure is very common; that is why I suggest that one should keep the old CRT TV, buy a converter and put them both in the garage or basement so they are handy when our s*e*x*y new sets go belly up.
With fair confidence I can say that the main power supply has failed.
If you want to try this on your own, it only will require the removal of a few screws and a flashlight.
- Unplug the set overnight. - Remove the rear housing  - Use some logic and these tips; look for a separate board with larger than average parts on it and seems closer to the power cord than others. This will be the power supply.
Check the board over for something that looks like a part number and record it. If you find more than one, one of them will be the bare board number, the second (sometimes on a sticker instead of printed directly on the board) should be the part number for the assembly.
Search for the Westinghouse service company nearest you and call them with this info. Ask if they repair these or just sell new ones. If it is the latter, don't pitch the old one, continue to look for a repair service that will take it on after you have the new one in place and can watch your favorites again. The new supply will likely cost between $90 - $150 and with a little common sense, most anyone can remove and replace these in the set. Expect any repair to cost about the same as a new supply; US technical labor costs more than Chinese assembly labor. 
These supplies can be as reliable as the primitive older type but companies refuse to use the high-grade components necessary to give them a long life so they fail much sooner than the old, less efficient kind known as 'linear' supplies.

Westinghouse ew32s5kw tv red light shows power is going to unit pressing power turns indicator light from red to blue for a brief moment then back to red.


I had the same problem on my Westinghouse 32 inch TV. The internal main power supply went bad and had to be replaced. I had a TV repair shop do it. It was about 8 years ago. Haven't had a problem since. I think it cost about $70 for parts and labor. Nowadays TVs are pretty much a throw away item if they go bad. TV repair shops are getting hard to find plus the cost of TVs has come down so much sometimes you can get a new set for what the repair would cost!

When i push the power on button it won"t turn on . the blue power light flashes yellow three times


Google Dell W2600 blink codes. You're tv is doing a self diagnostic and letting you know what's wrong with by flashing the yellow light. Count how many time and if there is a sequence to it, then look it up.
