The LCD would not turn on with the remote or the on/off switch. I removed the power cord, repluged it in and then the unit worked with remote or the power switch. After awhile the unit would not switch inputs from the remote. Again removing and replacing the plug fixed the problem.
Weird, my post disappeared.
did any of you guys find a solution to the problem(s)? i too have no video, my volume buttons on the unit does not work though there is sound coming out the speakers, and my remote does not work.
i had since upgraded/replaced the unit. it's sitting in my living room now. DaDakota, i wouldn't mind getting some money for it if you want to purchase it still. let me know. thanks.
If you can not get it fixed, I have one of these with a broken LCD screen, that apparently you can not get a replacement for, I would be willing to purchase your broken model and try to marry the two if you feel like selling it.

I saw this fix posted on another blog by a fellow named Patrick. I tried it today and it it worked. It fixed my Westinghouse lvm-37w1. Basically disassemble the back of the TV (removing all the screws on the edges and middle). Remove screws holding bottom speaker and stand. There are 2 chrome rods extending down. There are small screws inside holding them on. You can turn the rods and unscrew the screws but need a small screw driver to put them back on. Remove the black cover on the back. remove the plates on the lower middle section. You will expose a printed circuit card. unplug wires and unscrew 4 screws holding it in. Remove it, turn it upside down and inspect the solder joints near the lower middle (especially under the gray relay on the other side). I found 4 solder joints that were cracked. Resolder the larger solder joints that are cracked or look bad (small solder joints are too delicate). Put it back to gether and it should work now. Mine works great. No more black screen with no sound.
Hello, this model has two ribon cables that run from the t_con board to the panel, it sounds like you might have to replace one of them if not the whole t_con board. You can find parts for this at www.shopjimmy.com, I would recommend you taking this unit to a certified repair center if you are not atleast a bit technical because you have to did a bit deep in to the set for this one.
