Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

OUR WESTINGHOUSE 32" HDTV WHICH COST US $1100 DOLLARS 2 1/2 YEARS AGO PICTURE TUBE OR WHATEVER IS IN THERE HAS FAILED AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT IT IS PROHIBITED BY COST TO REPLACE. I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT A PRODUCT WITH A RESPECTED NAME LOKE WESTINGHOUSE WOULD ONLY LAST A COUPLE OF YEARS WHEN USED ABOUT 6 HOURS A DAY. PLEASE ADVISE ME IF THERE ARE ANY REASONABLE RESOLUTIONS TO MY PROBLEM. I MIGHT ALSO ADD THAT I AM A STOCK HOLDER OF WESTINGHOUSE STOCK FOR MANY YEARS AND AM ASTONISHED THAT OUR COMPANY WOULD PRODUCE A PRODUCT OF SUCH LOW QUALITY

That is an unfortunate situtation you are in, but you need to understand Westinghouse does not make or manufacture the TV or is components in your TV. They are merely doing what is common in the industry which is rebanding.

$1100 is a lot of money for a 32" LCD so I do not blame you for being upset about the problem you are getting and the service you are experiencing. But the fact of the matter is, there are 32" LCDs on the market today that are starting at $499.99. You can always purchase a more expensive name brand also, but in the end you should consider a replacement warranty or if you put it on a Credit Card, verify whether your Credit Card does automatic warranty extensions....

I am looking for a picture tube for a proscan TV 32"


I believe they are no longer available. The last tv picture tube was manufactured several years ago. To cross reference you will need the actual part number and a lot of luck running across one laying around in some shop.

No picture sound only, blue light stays on


0ne of 3 has failed:
(in order of probability):

1. Backlight inverter
2. Power Supply
3. Backlight

Please seek the expertise of an experienced TV repair technician - as they contain potentially lethal voltages that must be properly discharged before work can begin.

Thanks!&^%

OVerheats - no control-thermostat? Can this be replaced?


Yes but it is probably cheaper to buy a new iron

The days of repairing small appliances went out of the door some 15 years ago.

Minimum 1 hour labour charge plus the parts cost at whatever Westinghouse want to charge will be circa $40

You then have an iron with and old tank , and old element etc etc waiting to go wrong to cost you another fee

Blue tint on bottom of screen


I have the same KDF60XS955 sony and have the same problem. I called sony customer support and was told there was a recall on the optical block for this tv. But the recall ended in Dec. of 2008. I was upset that they did not call or send out a notice to me. They should of had my information because I had a different issue that they sent someone out to fix a few years ago. They said it was an expensive fix, like over 1000 dollars. Instead of fixing it they offered me a deal on a smaller tv, a 52 inch sony. I could buy that one at a discount which is about 1100 dollars. I told them that I thought that was the worst deal I have ever heard of. Why would I spend about 4000 dollars for a tv 4 years ago only to be told that I could buy a smaller one today for 1100 dollars more. I said if I bought that 52 inch tv today, what would happen 4 years from today, am I going to be offered an even smaller one for more money again? I thought I was buying a top of the line tv back then, I only wished it would have lasted longer than this. Not happy!

New HDTV bulb


I have just bought a second hand Sony 50 inch Projection & the owner from new (paid 1200 Quid) assures me he has never replaced the bulb in 6 years. Don't pay 190 Pounds plus, if you can loosen 2 nuts you can get an Osram bulb alone (not mounted) for 32 Pounds 55 Dollars delivered if you search well on E Bay

Turns off automatically after 5 seconds. Momentary display of saturated picture and sound from memory. Brief menu display, superimposed on screen. Could this have been caused by a spike on the cable...


mine did that too, turned out a picture tube went out on it. I was told that it probabely was a sensor that was turning it off. the picture tube, I was told, would cost me over 600 dollars
