    Your Westinghouse SK32H240S have video card trouble. It is not a user repairable section, as the user must have sound knoledge in both digital and analogue electroncis. This set uses both the technology; digital and analogue. Moreover the componets on that section cannot be replaced by ordinary desoldering and soldering methods, as it is assembled with CNC [Computer Numerical Controlled] machines, pressfit technology. Your set does not show a screen even for five minutes. If so we may have use the Factory Default function to know whether it help us.
    As soon as video signal comes to the respective secton for processing, the system control IC in your set detects a fatal error, which prevents from furhter processing, and thus goes to protection mode. This is actually happening now to your set. As the fault prvails for just seconds, it is very difficut to detect for an experienced service technician too. Moreover, to repair this sectoon, one must have sophisticated testing equipments, like oscilloscopes, digital multimeter, colour analyser, frequency counter and so on. Without proper testing equpments, trying to repair this section is dangerous, and will cause more components to be get fault. So if you have confidence and have atleast a high quality digital multimeter, DC soldering iron wich ceramic bit, a very steady hand for soldering and more patience to do this work, inform me by Fixya. I'm happy to assist you. OK.

I have a Insignia NSL37Q10A, when you turn it on it display's

Change input device to some other like a DVD player. Look for loose contacts in RC jack, cable, sockets. Look for any jammed buttons on TV or on remote.

Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Check out after this reset process whether the problem solves or not. If not its video card has some trouble. Contact and enquire them about the nearest westinghouse Authorised Service center of theirs to you. Thy only can set it right. OK.

Hi there. I'm getting a "Please run channel auto scan" message on my Insignia flat screen. Please advise.

I am assuming this is your first digital television. Unlike the old analog television digital televisions
must have the channels scanned into the set. This what you have to do.
> Connect the signal source to the back. Antenna/Cable/Satellite.
(You may have already done the above step.)
> Go into the menu for the signal input source and set it to what was set on the back of the set.
> Click on scan or channel or whatever it's called and wait for it to search for available channels.
> Save the channels found.
You may exit menu and watch television.

The owner's manual gives this and more information.

I have a Westinghouse 32"

These TVs are notorious for backlight inverter problem. You could look for a complete backlight board(this will be easier if you're not a tech), or you can replace the transformer and transistor(transistor doesn't always go - sometimes you get lucky). The transformer that is bad will have a small burn mark in it where one of the legs comes up from the board. If I was you I would just replace the board since it's easier. I have done about a half dozen of these. Joe

Locking Controls of Insignia 40'' LCD TV

Alas, I have been through this with my children and unfortunately outside of a Parental Channel lock, I have not heard of a vendor who has created the capability of locking the set controls. It's just the unfortunate case that the controls are accessible to the child (I have another TV where they are on top and even my 9 yr old can't reach them - ha ha).Sorry my friend.
