Westinghouse 32 in LCD TV

I bought this TV about a year and a half ago. A couple days ago I turned it on but no picture came on. The audio works fine but the TV is not producing a picture. Can somebody help me out with this? Westinghouse has been no help at all. Thanks

    Me too - I've had mine for closer to 2 years though - Last night turned on the TV, nothing but sound.

    Same here. Sound was fine, but no picture after 11 months. Bought the TV from Bestbuy and bought the 4yr warranty. Got 3 more years to go!

    Have had the Westinghouse 32" about a year and a half.

    Worked fine until today. Turned it on and had no picture.

    The power is on and it has sound but I am also unable to adjust the volume or change channels.

    Is this repairable?

    I tried changing the cable box, unplugged it, turned it on and off, and pressesed every button th remote at least a dozen times.

    Like all other posts related to Westinghouse they were no help and basically sounded like they could care less.

    Has anybody tried the part number mentioned above. I have the exact same problem and thinking of buying that part. Only difference, price at listed website was $139 instead $69 mentioned above.

    turned TV on one day and got sound but no picture. after a while, screen showed a patchwork grid of pastel colors. after more time, poof, picture comes right back. it does this consistently now. it's like it needs a 5 or 10 minute warmup. the warmup period seems to be getting longer and longer before the "poof" happens and the picture comes up.

    Same problem here for the Niko 32" LCD from Tigerdirect - green power light comes on, can hear sound, but I have no picture.  I can verify that the inverter card for my Niko model OPT-3211W is indeed VIT70002.00 (Rev. 5). This unit was purchased 2/2006 and failed 5/2009.  Had not experienced any problems till today.

I have had this problem now for about six months with my Niko OPT-3211W. After replacing the Inverter card, VIT70002.00 as suggested nothing changed. I then read that it may be a couple of capacitors in the power supply, but I do not have the skills needed to replace them, nor do I want to pay to fix it. The solution is simple... turn on the TV and wait two to five minutes, then turn off the main power. I suggest using a power strip. Then turn the power back on in two to five seconds. The TV will come back on and it works great from then on. I thought that it was a freak thing, but it keeps working.

I had the same problem today, but noticed the picture is there, but almost like the "light" setting has been tuned to 0 so no light comes through the tv... if i could see my menu i could probably reset it but thats the real problem...

I just got my 32" Westinghouse LCD SK32H240S back yesterday from a warranty business and they replaced a transformer on the power supply. It works now so hopefully that helps someone pinpoint this problem.

I am having problems with my Westinghouse LCD TV. When i 1st turn it on, everything is fine but after a couple minutes I lose picture. The audio is fine and continues on. I unplug the tv from the outlet...

No quick fixes. A component such as a capacitor is heating up and failing. Sometimes a cracked solder connection will work fine until it heats up and no longer sustains the connection.

When the screen goes off, shine a very bright flashlight at the screen to see if the image is still there. In many cases, the problem is the screen backlight, which consists of several CCFL tubes (fluorescent lamps) and a circuit board called the inverter (similar to a lamp ballast).

If the image is there, but the backlight is off, then you just may need a new inverter board.

Blank screen when tv has been on for 10-20 minutes

Hi jilanfa00, 
I am happy to help, we need to check the backlight inverter.
  1. Turn tv on and get to a point that you have audio.
  2. Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen.
  3. Look very closely at the screen for a very dark video image.
If you see an image you have a bad inverter, you should be able to replace it yourself. I can walk you through in chat. Let me know your findings. Lone99star

I bought a 32 LCD Westinghouse TV 12 months ago. It stopped working so I brought it to a TV repair shop. They determined that the main board went out. The TV's power supply is working but there is no screen or sound, nothing. The TV repair shop had to call Westinghouse to inquire about a replacement part. Funny, Westinghouse doesn’t make replacement parts for this TV. Westinghouse said we need to ship it back to them and they will send us a new TV. Okay that sounds good but they wont pay the $100 plus shipping costs for us to ship the broken TV back to them. Also, they make you send them the TV before they send you the replacement TV. That can take days. If the customer's TV went out because of the company’s faulty product, the customer shouldn't have to dic around with this shipping issue – Waa, Waa! The TV was nice but for it to conk out in one-year shows what shi++y merchandise Westinghouse is selling their consumers. “Buyer Beware”
