    I turn on the monitor and the screen has horizontal lines flashing so we turn up the brightness to 100 and it stops but then the screen goes to all white.

    Same problem with another Westinghouse model (17 in). Screen gets progressively lighter then turns all white. Powering the monitor off for a few seconds and then back on brings the picture back but only for a short time. The longer I leave the monitor off, the longer it will display a picture before "whiteout". The monitor is a little over 1 year old.

    Mine just started.  Went to turn off Monitor and it turned white instead and won't turn off unless I unplug it.  When I turn it on, it has horizontal lines for several minutes and then is fine until I attempt to turn it off.

    I lost three of these monitors in less than one year. Nothing but a white screen. A seventeen inch monitor did the same thing after about eight months.

    My monitor has horizontal lines "rolling". Any change in brightness stops the rolling but screen turns all white. I just leave it alone. Good picture except for the rolling horizontal lines.

    I have 2 Westinghouse monitors on two computers 19" and a 21" widescreen.  Both are about the same age, just over 1 year.  Monitor gets hazier over time then goes completely white.  Turning it off and on sometimes helps, but only for a short time.  If I leave it off for a while it will work okay...for awhile.  On my widescreen is use a DVI connector and the 19" I use the normal monitor connector.

    I have a westinghouse monitor and the power button, actually all of the buttons no longer work. Why is this?

  • seanf4i Feb 26, 2009

    i have exactly same problem. westinghouse LCM that turns white after a few hours of use. I turn it off, wait an hour or so, and then back on. it works for a while, but with white horizontal lines that roll downward. eventually it all turns white again. It's about 1 year old. I think the problem is the brand, and the solution is better quality product. Does anybody know of decent brands that are still inexpensive?

    I have a Westinghouse 19'' LCD Monitor and my problem is a bit different, the screen turns white after turning it off, i had the monitor for 2 years and it was working just fine until this happened. Does anyone have a solution? can it be repaired? I have to unplug the monitor everytime im done with it, its annoying having the screen white when its supposed to be black after shutting it down.

I have the same problem with my LCD tv... The DVI-D (white connector in the back) and the D-SUB (connector on main-board next to the DVI-D) work great for my computer. However, the antenna returns only a white screen no matter what I plug into with it using a coaxial cable. Judging by the modular configuration on the TV (1 main board with LCD monitor attached to it and the 2 computer inputs, and a smalled board on the back with the antenna, component video, S-video, mini-jack out, and composite video.) I think the smaller board which I believe is called a "NR Unit" is what has failed. I took off the back mini-panel of the TV off, which just slides off when you press down 2 tabs. And, I found the small board which is only held down by 5 small screws, and it pops right off. So, if you can find a NR board from westinghouse that works, it's a quick and easy (hopefully inexspensive) replacement. Hope this helped.

Fade to white might be caused by a bad or open connection to the backplane or bias voltage setting of the LCD. Check the connectors and cables between the LCD and the main board. Also, look for loose or disconnected ground wires.

Make sure it is plugged into the right connector on the back of the pc. If you have intergrated video and a later installed video card make sure it is plugged into the right one. Does the monitor say "no signal"? Have you tried a different monitor to verify that the connection works. Also try a different cable, as the cable could be bad.

When the computer comes on the monitor will not connect. The indicator light flickers an orange color. Sometime if I unplug the monitor cable it will come on.

your cable can be broken or your video board may be broken...first try with another cable, if this not solves the problem try with another monitor, and if still doesn't work that means your video board has a problem

White screen, power switch not functioning.

Unplug it, reset it. Did it come with install disk? Try running that with your old monitor. The system may not recognize it as plug and play or the monitor may be defective. Call Tiger Direct or whoever you bought it from for support.

Lcd screen white when turned off

The Backlight is not turning off. Try a hard reset, unplug the tv for several hours. If the reset does not correct the problem you will need the Power Supply replaced. If the unit is still under warranty you will need to return to the merchant or send to manufacturer for repair. If I can assist further please let me know. Lone99star
