Westinghouse LCM 20v5 20.1 inch LCD monitor

My monitor keeps shutting off when I try to turn it on. It makes a weird buz sound then shuts off, it will come back on and stay on when I turn it on and then back off a few times. Maybe a power supply problem?

Next time you get it running, right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look for your monitor on the 'Monitors' '+' sign and right click>delete. Also check 'Display adapter' see if the correct driver is displayed. Re- boot and let Windows re-install monitor driver(it should list it as 'Sony')

When the screen turns black again take a flashlight and shine it in the bottom left hand corner where the Windows Start button is located. If you can see a faint image then your back light is failing. If that?s not the case the next step would be to attach another monitor to your computer to see if the problem disappears. If it does that points to the monitor, if it doesn?t then we need to take a look at the computer itself. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Usually resetting a device like that is done via it's On Screen Display (OSD). Maybe you need to contact Sony Tech support.

You can do this by clicking the below link:

Let me know if they have a solution to your problem.

Probably 1280 x 1024 at 32bit color depth assuming those are the settings you are asking about. If not, please be more specific with a follow up post.

How do I convert a Westinghouse 22" LCM-22w3 DVI/VGA LCD Monitor into an HDTV?


Dear Amy,

Normally, monitors do not have tuning electronics for capturing TV signals.
Therefore, consider the monitor as a "dumb" unit that only displays information coming from your computer. Also, this unit does not have a HDMI input, but only VGA.
So, you are fated to have this monitor connected to your computer, always.
Now, you may find good software that will "tune" the TV signals from streaming at the Internet and show whatever is being broadcast. The same way you can access YouTube and watch videos these TV tuners will get the streaming signals the TV stations send via Internet (not all do that) and watch the channel in your PC/monitor
Since I do not have additional information about the computer you use I cannot give you other ideas
I hope I have helped you.

Can a westinghouse lcm-22w3 be used as a tv


Yes, you will just need to have the right output on your cable box with some conversion. (eg. if you have RGB out of the back of the box you will have to get a break out cable that goes from that to VGA for the back of your monitor.

Not turning on


Check the capacitors on the power supply board in the unit. This is a very common problem with this unit but it is easy to repair. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to open the monitor and what to look for.

My monitor will not shut down - screen stays white


You got a short circuit in one transistor located at the inverter area. The transistor is acting like a conductor and not shutting down the power to the back light inverter. If you are a technician and want to fix it, look for short circuits in transistors.

Good luck.

Make sure that all three screws are removed from the back of the display. This is in addition to the four that hold the stand on.

I had the same problem with my two LCM-19W4 monitors. Both failed within two months of each other. Radio Shack stocks 220uF 35V capacitors that work fine for this. You have to pay $1.49 ea though.
