Model LTV-27w2 westinghouse

When cold set will work fine for 5 minutes with blue power lamp on front ok. Then the audio and video will go out and the blue light will turn amber. Either turning off or unplugging for 1 minute then the unit will operate for about 5 minutes again. Thanks for any assistance

    We power up the TV works for anywhere from 5 - 30 min before loosing the picture and sound. The blue power light stays on. We power the TV off with remote for 5-10 seconds and get mixed results. Sometimes the TV will work fine (al least for next hour before we turn off of the evening). Sometimes the we loose the picture and sound over and over as we keep turning off and on. The newest addition is the amber power light we get when attempting to power back on with no picture or sound. No indication in owners guide as to meaning of amber light.

    Purchased Jan 2007, Lately TV just turns off, blue light stays on and sometimes you can turn off and back on again oter times it takes 10 - 15 minutes, called Westinghouse they said sorry sounds like the panel (????) and it would be too expensive to repair just get a new TV. by the way he said this in a matter of 10 seconds after I mentioned the problem as if he has heard this before, I think this most be a common problem.

The tv got a heat sensor, the only way to fix tv , if you are a tv tech, is to buy a bottle of "freez it" spray small sections of tv in side. It will be clearly where the fault is if you spray correct part that give trouble. Replace that part and Tv will be Ok.

TV went out for good in early april 08. Had to ship TV to an authorized westinghouse service center. Nearest one was approx 200 miles away. Well I got TV repaired it was the power supply at my cost of $250. Will not buy another Westinghouse.

    Well I read all of the comments on the Westinghouse LTV-27w2. First of all I bought this one used for 168 dollars, and I thought it was the remote. Wrong. After buying a Universal RCA remote, I started to experiment. What you need to do is set up the RCA remote to be programmed to the westinghouse brand. Then press menu when you turn it on again. Press the right side of the middle cross switch and work down to the hammer picture or fix site. Then click down to timer settings, and click down to 120 minutes. Turn off the menu button again, and turn the remote away from the t.v., and point it up against the wall. After I did this it still shuts off sometimes, but usually the t.v. runs all day without shutting off again. IT REALLY WORKS> Problem solved!

It is a little difficult to be certain where the problem is with that description, but at least statistically it is more likely to be in the power board than the main board.

You can send it for repair to us or you can search for a replacement, they go about $70-$80.

I have a westinghouse ltv-27w2 and after about 15 to 20 minutes it shuts off .i turn it off for about an half hour it comes back on and play for about 15 to 20 minutes again.what is the problem and is it...

Hi my first guess is the power supply. You can inpect it for bulged capacitors that might be obvious. My second thought is the signal board but I leaning more towards the power supply. If you want to buy parts you can find them at in order to get parts you have to get the part numbers from the actual part on your TV. If you open it up it has a part number stamped to it. Be carefull opening up the TV it has high voltage. leave it unplugged for a couple of hours before opening it up.

TV just shuts off on it own... Have a westinghouse LTV-27-W2 TV purchased in 2005. It's been shutting off for no apparent reason... I wonder if it's going bad or is it the power cord.

Most likely, a number of capacitors need to be replaced in the power supply on this set, OR possibly, there is a bad connection on a connection on the snubber capacitor in the power supply, near the SMT transformer--and I have seen this MANY times on westinghouse LCD sets. .
