WEstinghouse TV Bright white screen

We just bought a Westinghouse Sk32h240s from walmart and it worked fine for the first month. now we are having intermittent problems. when we turn it on it will sometimes be a bright white, picture is visible with sound, but it looks like the contrast is pegged at high. The first time it happened we turned off and came back a few hours later and all was fine, no such luck this time. any ideas on how to fix?

Is the LED light purple ?

I have only read bad things about this model. Here are some of the things I have come across. Try this first. With the TV on, unplug it, wait a few seconds an plug it back in. You may also turn off the energy saving mode.

Beyond that the problem could be one of four problems;
1) Bad cable connection to inverter board. Make sure all cables are firmly seated.
2) Inverter board is bad.
3) Power to inverter board is bad.
4) CCFT(cold cathode fluoresent light) has problems.

SOURCE: Westinghouse LTV 19w3 shuts off

The same thing was happening to mine and the problem was in the power supply. Apparently, there was a loose connection causing it to go in and out. The round connector end that plugs into the monitor has two prongs on the inside. I was able to bend each prong toward the center with a thumb tack so that it would have a tighter connection, and it now works fine. Unplug from wall before working on the prongs.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. TV WAS FINE UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO. OF COURSE ITS OUT OF WARRANTY. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ, AND BEEN TOLD, IT IS THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE UNIT. IT IS DEFECTIVE, OR IT OVERHEATS AND TRIES TO SHUT DOWN. A LAW SUIT IS IN PROGRESS AGAINST WESTINGHOUSE TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER. KINDA REMINDS ME OF THE XBOX 360'S WHEN THEY CAME OUT. ALL YOU CAN DO IS TAKE IT IN FOR SERVICE. OR, YOU CAN KEEP TURNING IT ON AND OFF, LIKE I DO. I HAVE HAD THIS TV ON ALL NIGHT BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEMS. AS SOON AS I START CHANGING STATIONS, OUT IT GOES. GOOD LUCK. WESTINGHOUSE WILL NOT EVEN EMAIL ME. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONTACT THEM. I HAVE HEARD FROM THE LAW FIRM IN CALIFORNIA THAT IS GOING AFTER THEM. GO ONLINE, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE.

I have a westinghouse sk32h240s. wont turn on and no amber light.


First try a new power cord for the TV. If that doesn't solve the problem, the power supply has failed. (Possibly one or more capacitors on the power supply board have failed. Alternatively, a fuse, zener diode or resistor that works as a fuse has failed) You will need to open the tv and inspect the power supply. Westinghouse TVs use a number of different boards. If you want to replace the entire power supply, you will need to note that exact part number on the label. ShopJimmy has refurbished and used power supplies for this model: http://www.shopjimmy.com/westinghouse-sk-32h240s . The used ones are from TVs that were damaged in shipping and thus have minimal use. http://www.partstore.com/Model/Westinghouse+Digital+Electroni/Westinghouse+Digital/SK32H240S/Other+Remotes.aspx also has replacement parts.

I hope this helps.

Westinghouse 32 in LCD TV


I have had this problem now for about six months with my Niko OPT-3211W. After replacing the Inverter card, VIT70002.00 as suggested nothing changed. I then read that it may be a couple of capacitors in the power supply, but I do not have the skills needed to replace them, nor do I want to pay to fix it. The solution is simple... turn on the TV and wait two to five minutes, then turn off the main power. I suggest using a power strip. Then turn the power back on in two to five seconds. The TV will come back on and it works great from then on. I thought that it was a freak thing, but it keeps working.
