Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have a Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HDTV-Ready LCD TV purchased in December 2005. It has been great up util the last month. When I first turn it on, it come on and runs for anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes then shuts itself off. It may do this more than once. It then become very difficult to get it to power back up. When it does eventually come back on it runs great. Will this be an expensive repair? Should I start shopping for another TV as I foolishly did not purchase an extended warranty?
Does anyone know what the part number for this elucid power supply would be? My TV is doing the same thing, so I'm trying to find one so I can swap it out.

I just changed the power supply on mine and it is working fine. Cost $67.00 and took 10 minutes!

I also have the same model as you and have the same problem. I called Westinghouse and talked to one of thier people and they told me that it sounds like the power supply. I took it to my local repair shop and that is what it was. It cost me $110.00 to repair it.

Jmur89: I have experienced a similar problem with my LTV-32w1. The sound and picture would turn off unexpectedly, but the blue light would stay on. Turning the power off and the on again would restore picture & sound. Frequencey of this problem varied between 1 time every 4 hours to 4 times per hour. It was getting really annoying, then suddenly nothing I did would return the sound and picture. Cycling the unit off and on only makes the blue light come on and off, but no picture or sound. I read in a post on another website that the protection circuit is coming on due to excessive power drain, and that this problem is very difficult and expensive to diagnose and repair. I also did not purchase an extended warranty and have started shopping for a new tv.

SOURCE: TV shutting off
Bought our Westinghouse LTV32 at the end of 2005, and we're having the same intermittent shut off problems. The blue power light is on, but the sound and picture are shutting off at random. We use the remote to power off and back on, but it doesn't always restore the picture and sound. If we leave the TV off for a while, it works later, but sometimes for 5 minutes, sometimes for a couple of hours, then it turns off again, but the power light stays on. $200 for a new main board, that might work ...? Yeesh.
