Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w4 32.02 in. LCD HDTV
When I have the hdmi cable installed the tv picture flips on and off constantly, but if i disconnect the hdmi cable and use the av cables the picture is just fine with no HD. I changed the hd cable and my satelliter box with no change.

My 42" Westinghouse HDMI inputs just stopped working. I thought it was the TW Explorer 4250HDC issue so I got a new one from TW. Still said no signal from HDMI. So, I shut the TV down and pulled the power cord out of the back. I waited a few seconds and reconnected the pwr cord. The TV "re-booted" so to say and now the HDMI inputs work. I think TVTEK has the right idea that it is firmware/software related. In the mean time, you might want to give that a try.

You have a software related issue. The reason the picture goes on and off with HDMI is because of the copy guard signal within the digital parameters. You might check with Westinghouse for updated firmware/software or is you are using a Direct TV box it might be thier issue as well.

Unfortunately this TV will not support 576i, the standard PAL resolution and therefor you will not be able to use a PAL TV tuner with it. The only other options are to use any HD device such as an HD TV set-top box or HD DVD player as these will connect to the TV via HDMI at an HD resolution, alternatively you could use your PC as a TV tuner (if it has a TV tuner inbuilt or attached) as your PC will send a VGA signal to the TV at 1360x768.

SOURCE: how to remove dvd drive for Westinghouse LTV-32w4
First you would have to get a service manual, this shows you all you need to know about the unit. Without it, it is very difficult to even remove the case. but once inside, it is basically a simple task, to find the drive, remove the fastenings, and the Cable, obtain an EXACT replacement HDD, and reverse the procedure, it may pay to format the HDD first, FAT32, I believe, although your manual will be more specific.

i have the same problem. All the HDMI input just stop working.
This particular problem was documentd by Popular Mechanics, and is a well-known problem with Westinghouse TVs. I am on this site because I have had two Westinghouse TVs in the past 12 months, and both had their HDMI ports completely fail. From googling "Westinghouse HDMI", this appears to also be a common problem. Best Buy is backing away from support, and Westinghouse wants me to ship mine at my own expense and send me another of the same model TV. Why would I do that?
I am using a hyper speed HDMI cables and my tv-toshba will not bring in the some HD channels why
