Hi tybotim
To answer your question;
The way you described it : it sounds like your problem has started with the backlight inverter board and then caused the power supply to fail.
And in your case both of these(usually separate) circuits are on the same board.
Here`s a web address where you will see a picture of that board,
Take a look and let me know if it looks like it.
The part number is: LIPS-B070-401

no lamps can be changed in that tv, they are part of the panel. What's really wrong w it?

You use channel 3 if you are going to use coax cable to feed your TV from the sat receiver.. Some sats will use Channel 60 or something in that range. You should use Audio/video cables for you Sat feed.

this is common in these White westinghouse. the common issue here is the back light or the inverter.

do this when its black take a flash light direct on the display if you see something like a picture its your backlight that has given out on you.

further the manufacture know about this issue and has repaired my mom's for free before i got my hot little hands in the honeypot.

and what do you know it was the backlight.

Sounds like the backlight or power supply for it failed. If the unit is out of warranty, try and open up the back and have a look for the area that burned up. Make sure it is unplugged. Damage to the power supply? or the inverter board? or the backlight panel itself?

Which half is the blue in? is it cut horizontally or vertically

Westinghouse... | Answered on Mar 01, 2010


Yes the problem has been solved. finally. The information on your web site was correct but the replacement board that I needed was no longer available. I ended up taking it to the local repair shop and he "worked on the board" that was messed up. Cost about the same as a new board would have, if I could have gotten one. Thanks for the great web site.

This is an LCD TV. It does not have a replacable lamp. Most likely you have bad caps in the power supply. These are famous for this problem and not expensive to repair. Thanks for using fixya.

Did you try another input source such as a DVD player or something? Does the problem persist in that too? May be its just your cable signal..


Westinghouse... | Answered on Feb 05, 2010

The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! If this helped any (*or not) then please rate, thank you!7b2e359.jpg

Checked all connection given properly checked your cable connection some time cable connection not proper than also its display no signal

Westinghouse... | Answered on Jan 23, 2010

You may have a bad plug point, a blown fuse or a faulty power supply, unless you are very familiar with TV electronics it must be serviced by a TV technician. The fuse is generally inside the cover.

Westinghouse... | Answered on Jan 12, 2010

A power supply board can be found at a good price at Shopjimmy.com or Ebay. Make sure the board number matches up. Normally, the numbers can be found on the corners.
