I have this problem too and saw in a blog that certain thermometers might do this - I have one on the window of the room where this TV is and I'm going to put something to block it to see if the problem goes away.

Re: TV turns on by itself
Being so new and still under warranty you should call the manufacture for answers,sometimes they have updates to install in the brain (software)of the set and they would send someone to do it.You might not be the only one with this problem.Custumer service for lcd tv's is 866-287-5555.

It sounds like there is a component on the power board that is going bad. What I would recommend to do first of all is to do a factory reset, you can do this by going on to the menu, go under the settings tab, and it wil be the last option which is the factory reset. If this does not work you will need to replace the power board. You can contact Westinghouse parts department at [email protected].
I would recommend to call the Westinghouse customer service since you are at least close to the year warranty, their number is 1800-701-0680, other than that the only thing you can do is to do a factory reset by going in to the menu, go under the settings tab, and it will be the last option.
I have a Westinghouse LCD; model # LTV-20v2SL and it stopped working. I
had turned it on, then it just went off...I tried using different
outlets, unplugging for a moment or 2 and then re-plugging in; nothing.
It was purchased a couple of years ago; fairly new. Any suggestions?
I believe I may have solved this problem by putting a small fan blowing on the intake of the Lamp fan. I put the fan in place and the TV has not turned off randomly since. That was only a day ago so I'll see if it is a permanent fix. If so I will probably try to mount the fan on the back of the TV out of sight.
This seems to be associated with the overheating of some component. On my set I need to check that the backlight is set to a low level. On reset it automatically adjusts to a level above maximum and the green screen will appear in a few minutes. I took the back off and that helped some.
