First try a new power cord for the TV. If that doesn't solve the problem, the power supply has failed. (Possibly one or more capacitors on the power supply board have failed. Alternatively, a fuse, zener diode or resistor that works as a fuse has failed) You will need to open the tv and inspect the power supply. Westinghouse TVs use a number of different boards. If you want to replace the entire power supply, you will need to note that exact part number on the label. ShopJimmy has refurbished and used power supplies for this model: http://www.shopjimmy.com/westinghouse-sk-32h240s . The used ones are from TVs that were damaged in shipping and thus have minimal use. http://www.partstore.com/Model/Westinghouse+Digital+Electroni/Westinghouse+Digital/SK32H240S/Other+Remotes.aspx also has replacement parts.
There is a method called a Power Scan this method allows you to search for all possible codes. Try this until you reach a code that carries all of the functions desired. If the TV mode button starts flashing rapidly during this process you have exhausted all possible codes. Power Scan 1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #) 2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once. 3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).
Could be whats called the backlight inverter. Mine did the same exact thing. Ordered a new inverter and works fine now. i'm not a very techy person, but was able to remove and install myself! Got one at the link below...not cheap though..sorry.
The inverter in the link is for a Westinghouse 32" SK32H240S
I don't have DTV anymore, so I don't remember the exact code I used for my SK-32H240S, However, I do remember that I found one that worked at this site. Scroll down to locate your remote series # - it most likely will be printed on the upper left corner of the front of the remote - as an example, mine says RC64. Click on the corresponding listing, then follow the directions on the site. I tried only a few codes before finding one that worked correctly. Good luck.
DirecTV offers a remote code lookup tool, which I just used to find possible codes for my Westinghouse TX-42F430S; its first suggestion (the "most popular" code) didn't work. Clicking the "It's not here" button showed seven more codes, and one of them (11577) worked perfectly. Here is the full list of Westinghouse codes for DirecTV from that tool (as of 11/27/08):
Most Popular Code: 10885
Other Possible Codes: 10889 10890 11577 11282 10451 10000 11092
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.
