Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Tv is unresponsive

I have a Westinghouse 32" that is about 18 months old. A few months ago it became unreponsive to the remote and to the controls on the side of the tv. It happened at least once a week. Nothing would work- power, channels, volume ... nothing. So, for about a month I unplugged it and then plugged it back in to see if rebooting would help. That worked for a few weeks, but now it is totally useless. I plug it back in, it fires up to CNN where there is picture but no sound. The contols on the set and on the remote are totally useless. Out of warrany and SOL. Any tips besides boat anchor or watching the CNN scroll 24/7?

Does your set have a reset button on it? It sounds like we had the same problem from the beginning. In fact, we have bought and exchanged the tv 3 times because we thought maybe we just had a lemon. The picture would freeze and no buttons would fix it. We read in the owners manual about the reset button -- a tiny hole in the top of the power button on the right side of the tv. You can use the end of a paper clip and stick it in the hole to reset the tv. The tv powered off and then the remote and all the other buttons worked. Ours is still in the warranty but for the first month, it seemed like this happened at least 5 or 6 times. Haven't decided if we want to try to exchange it again or just live with it. Other than this, we love it!

Look for any jammed buttons on the remote or on control panel. Try changing the input device to something that you are sure, works.

Codes:

Power Scan:
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

An email from Westinghouse that fixed the problem for me.

We apologize for any inconvenience in waiting for our response, but below is what I can suggest to move forward.

WHITE-WESTINGHOUSE TV/VCR COMBO NEED CODE


The code for the TV is 0623 but to use the TV/VCR button to change mode from line to TV the code is one of the following 0179, 0451, 0463, 0624 or 0278. The 0623 only activates the menu but doesn´t let you change Air/Cable mode without first changing the Line/TV mode by pressing the TV/VCR or Line input button on your universalk remote with one of the other codes.
