Westinghouse sk26h730s turns itself off sporaticly. Sometimes will work properly for days and other times will not turn on for days.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Either the main power regulator board, or its back-light inverter might be faulty. There is no other way to repair these boards. Card base replacement should be done. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

Sound delay when using a hdmi cable

It is normal and real stupid---either ignore it (I won't) or go component as in a blind test done at our shop people could not tell on identical sets on HD program which was HDMI and which was Component---most of the time they thought the component was the HDMI picture

My LCD HDTV screen keeps going black.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

When i turn on my

This is an indication of out-of-regulation condition on the power supply section. The caused of this symptoms is the leaky/dried electrolytic filter capacitor in the power supply section. It will dropped the supply voltage and sometimes it produced an overload to the chopper transformer and produces that kind of symptoms. It needs a little warm-up to make itself stable but the symptoms will get worst, time will come the unit will not power up at all.
Leaky capacitor has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top and can easily be identified while dried capacitor has no physical indication of fault. You must have a capacitor checker to determine its condition. If it is not available, you may replaced all electrolytic capacitor in the output of the power supply section. It has a capacitance and working voltage which is labelled on its body itself. Replace it with same rating. Upon installing a new capacitor, ensure that the polarity (positive and negative side) must be at its location to avoid further damaged. It will not cost you much because each capacitor cost only less than a dollar. Also if you are going to DIY, you will save $200-$300 for service fee of the technician.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem.
Check also if your unit is still under warranty/warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the back cover it will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Westinghouse 26 ..... TV will

Hello TRH12300, there is a few things missing to be able to completely answer your question, for example when the TV goes black can you still hear the audio? What is the color of the power indicator light at the bottom of the screen? What is the model # you are talking about. This could be several thing with the most common one being the inverter board but with out knowing the model # I cannot tell you if it is a LIPS (power/invert board), inverter board itself, or it can also be the T-Con board or the main board. What I can do is please send me an email answering all the questions asked here to [email protected] so I can help answer your questions and get your TV back up and running in no time. Also once we are done please rate my answer.
