Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

We've had problems with our Westinghouse w3213hd tv occassionally getting blue where there is supposed to be white on the screen. It's driving me crazy and seems to be getting worst. We've tried adjusting every possible color and contrast setting there is resetting everything on the tv to the factory defaults. Nothing seems to make any kind of a noticable difference. My husband's been laid off for two years and we can't afford to buy a tv or take it to the repair shop. But he's very handy, so I'm hoping you cna guide him as to how to fix it ourselves. Please help!

There is an LVDS cable that goes from the t-con board to the panel. I believe this cable has gotten loose and hence you have this occasional blue tint. Re-seating the cable would most likely resolve this issue . Other than that, it can be the panel itself and it is not cost effective. But I do think you should try the re-seating the cable and hope it resolves the issue. The LVDS cable looks like hard-drive's IDE cable (ribbon cable). If you need further help locating it, or removing it, please let me know.

Westinghouse tv screen wont stop blinking different colors


I just had the same problem with my 50Inch. I tried calling the customer service number and waited three different times. The line just hung up on me as I became the next caller. Absoultely insane. I will never buy a westinghouse again. However, my tv was blinking from black to white to red to green to blue- the entire screen. I tried multiple things. eventually i held the EXIT button on the factory remote. This seemed to exit the safe mode of whatever it was in. I then changed the HDMI plug to the #2 port. Currently it is working normally.

Sound but the screen on my westinghouse 32 inch flat screen is solid lime green


By "sound but the screen on my westinghouse 32 inch flat screen is solid lime green" Do you mean that you have sound but the screen is green? If yes it means that an analog signal is being fed to a digital input. Did you recently change the input cables at the back from one port to another? If not then please describe what are colors of the cabels you are using(Yellow, Red, White or Red Blue Gren etc.,) and what port they are connected to so that I can tell you whether its a problem with the connections or the tv itself.

Power supply


best place to look is ebay and see if anyone has one up for sale. Usually get one really cheap compared to getting a new one. But if u want a new one do a internet search for one type manufacture and power supply and part number. Or u can check parts.com

Westinghouse 32in HDTV-Ready


I called westinghouse with a similar problem(my picture shows up but all the white turns blue or somtimes pink).
they say the problem is similar to that of the xbox 360's red ring of death problem. Now what needs to be done is the unit needs to be unplugged completely for about 30 minutes. this allows the unit to completely cool down. and when the unit restarts and heats up the troubled connections will reflow and all will be fixed.
I tried this and it worked well for my TV. but it is only a temp fix and will need to be done again if the problem occurs.
