    Same problem. A green haze generates on this Westinghouse LTV (27w6/32w3) and can even turn unused input screens (and any other full black) from black screen into the a full (almost florescent) green screen. From what I can tell and have heard, it's from the overheating. Have tried multiple times through Westinghouse to get any input about this problem and they don't have a clue... Had it around a year, might try to return it, but is basically a trade in for another piece of junk that will eventually come up with the same break down... DON"T BUY ANYTHING TO DO WITH WESTINGHOUSE!!!!

    Have the same issue only sometimes green, sometimes red or organge. Thought it might be overheating as well but live in sf and even happens when ambient temps are around 50 with a breeze and the tv is by the window.

    Got a power line conditioner thingy no use. Just a pos in my opinion might return and see what happens. Sometime cycling through the inputs works, sometimes not.

    My guess is that they use a really shitty power supply and overloads some of the interior electronics randomly.

    My LTV-32W1 also has the same green haze problem. It comes and goes and seems to affect all the inputs like Component and Composite. I also believe that it is related to heat. I have fired off an email to westinghouse, we shall see if they respond. Lucky for me, I do have a 4 year extended warranty so I might be able to get it fixed through that.

    It takes about 45 minutes to start losing my picture. Why doesn't it affect the menu screens? It looks like an oil painting or when you used to have to watch tv by means of an antenna. I had turned it off for about 10 minutes it came back on normal, but started losing it again after 15 minutes. (I never had this problem with my 19" TV/VHS combo lol) I'm taking it in today, I'll let you know what the repairmen say.

So after six weeks in the shop, the TV is beyond repair. The part to fix the pixilating problem finally came in, but the picture continued to get worse throughout their testing week. They tried repairing the motherboard, or what have you, and were unsuccessful. There is now NO VIDEO at all. They suggested packaging it up and sending it back to Westinghouse, a previous customer was charged a $350 flat fee to repair it. I would rather scrap it. Why spend that much more on a TV that has proven to be a problem child. Screw it! I'm getting a LG!

As stated before this seems to be associated with the overheating of some component. On my set I need to check that the backlight is set to a low level. On power up it automatically adjusts to a level above maximum and the green screen will appear in a few minutes. I took the back off to increase airflow and that helped some. Now the problem only occurs rarely.

I have the same problem with my LCD-32W1. One thing that helps *a little* is to reduce the saturation from the default of 50% to 30%.

Without a fan on sitting directly behind, it'll only take about 15 minutes before the screen bugs. Not to mention, the televison generates heat when off, so uplugging when not under use helps. Other than that, i'm trading it back in through Westinghouse for another one. Hopefully its not problematic or the overall product is definately trash.

    I sent my Westinghouse LCD television out for trade in on 12/1/7, they recieved it on 12/6, and now it's 1/10/8 without any information given, without asking certain questions about the case. The only question, out of several, they answered was when they recieved, but was a lie, as I contacted them again and guy told me a earlier date.. 4 days earlier than initially stated. They say it'd take from 2-3 weeks to process, then they said Christmas, then New Years, and now inventory check are causing delay. It's been 5 weeks already and will be another couple weeks to boot.Out of all the customer service people I contacted, only one requested status on the item, of which all previous people should've did... and who know when that'll get done... They won't reply to any situation of the case anymore, because they can't come up with any more excuses! This is what you'll get, "Oh, well... Christmas...uhhh... it's umm... New years... there is, well maybe, a.... uhhh... inventory check...ok, I'll (possibly) send in inquiry, can I do anything else for ya? Thanks for choosing Westinghouse." What a screw job!

    Only got the one year Westinghouse warranty, but they did still allow trade in after the warranty passed. Even though I was trying to get them to do something during the warranty, but they just didn't actually do anything until after. Took around 5 months to get a trade in started, now months for the trade to happen.

    Anyway, don't bother with Westinghouse goods. Me and numerous others have only got a bugged/inadequate television/product and the same great customer support! No wonder it was cheap at the time compared to most LCD's, because it's a P.O.S.!!!

Pix shuts off, green light starts flashing, pix comes back and shuts off again

If you have an issue where your picture turns off and the green power light starts flashing, you are most likely looking at a weak or old lamp. Do not be confused with a pix loss and a RED light flashing, as this can be caused by many things. The normal sequence of events for this fix is this:
1) TV turns on normally, plays for 1 to 3 minutes (may be more or less time)
2) Picture goes out and green power light begins flashing. It may flash for up to 2 minutes
3) green light turns on solid (stops flashing) and picture returns.
4) Picture goes out again and process repeats.

You may have been told that "if the lamp light isn't on, it isn't a bad lamp".
A weak lamp will cause the process above to occur. Other signs of a weak lamp:
The reflector in the lamp is very cloudy
You may see a "growth" or "bubble" on the vertical glass tube which is the lamp
You haven't replaced the lamp in quite some time or it is the original lamp from when you purchased the TV.

In cases like these, try a new lamp. Stick with an original Sony lamp, as there are many stories (both personally witnessed by me and also documented on the web) about problems with after market replacement lamps. And remember, lamps DO NOT have a shelf life; you can store them in a good environment (not too hot or cold!) for an indefinite period with no ill effects.

Intermittent blanking on pictures displayed

There's nothing wrong. The blinking areas are blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that the camera thinks are overexposed.
While viewing the picture, press cursor-up/down to cycle through the different views of your picture.

3 problems 1. TV shuts off and on automatically. 2. 2 inch band on left side of screen 3. No picture at all

The band or shadow on the left side of the screen definitely sounds like a defective light tunnel.As for the intermittent pix and shut down this could be the lamp if you have not already changed it.
