Question about Westinghouse SK-32H240S Television

When I turn on the TV the picture shows for a split second then goes black. Can hear everything and turn channels but can't see nothing, not even the menu screen. Only had the TV for a couple years. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi,

The issue you describe is consistent with an inverter circuit not working.
This inverter circuit is responsible for providing the high voltage for the backlight lamps inside the LCD panel.

Now,there are at least two different version on this model,
on one ,the inverter circuit is part of the power supply board,and this is easier to replace.The part is available here:
http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalog/product/view/id/171523/s/westinghouse-56-04264-001-power-supply/
It costs about-$150.
On the other version ,the inverter board is a separate board,but this one is not available outside the LCD panel.To replace the LCD panel will be not economical,since the cost of the LCD panel exceeds value of a new TV set.
If this is the situation for your TV,it will be very hard to find an inverter board outside the LCD panel.
Please make sure,what ind of inverter board is used in your TV.
In case it is the one with the panel,if you provide the generic# from the panel,the panel type,I will gladly help you researching this inverter board.it should cost about the same,about-$120.
If you are not comfortable to perform this repair by yourself,please add another-$100-$120 as labor fee.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Out of no where my Vizio won't show cable, Blue Ray, or shows on Roku. One of the HDMI ports hasn't worked well for awhile so would have to switch HDMI ports to watch Roku or Blue Ray, but overall worked...


you may need to change the HDMI board in the tv. it will be the hole board the parts are just to small to replace them all to get the HDMI board working again. find a second hand replacement. should be fine with another known working one.

My hannspree tv screen goes black blank


If the picture shows a picture briefly upon power up then goes off after a few seconds, you have a back light fault. It could have a problem in the 24vdc circuit, failing back light inverter board, or a blown CCFL lamp.

TV screen goes black but tv is on. But will stay on sometimes.


i have a 2000ish 32 inch trinitron Wega and i have had the EXACT same problems as you have, except mine was blacking out more and more frequently, but yes if u changes the channel or hit return onto the same channel you're watchin the picture wil come back, but not very long, about the longest it'll show a steady picture is 1/2 hr, but it's usualy going black within every 10-15 mins or so.

I took it to a Sony approved/recommened repair shop and aftet having a look i was told it would cost $200 cd including taxes to replace a 'vacuum tube' or something like that, i wish i could be more specific anout the part. I'm still considering whether or not to go through with the repair. I might just buy a working/used newer Tube Flascreen with HD for another couple hundred dollars. If there was a newer 2003+ 32 or 36" Sony that has a good track record I would love to hear suggestions. I don' trust flat panels, way too mny horror stories, and for every 1 i hear about there's probably 10-20 more.I'll give them another 5 years or so to get their acts together.

On the other had, if i do decide to get my 32" wega fixed i will post the results and the exact pt numbers of the pts used i the repair. Your problem is exactly the same as mine, to the letter. I'm a mechanic by trade, but i have a good feeling they're not going to give me correct pt # until i have payed them to fix it. Or else i'd order the part and install it myself.

Good Luck,
Aaron

Hitachi 46ex3b/4k turns on,sound, no picture black screen!


First check for a faulty capacitor on the power supply board as it sounds like that could be the first place to start. Before you touch any capacitors PLEASE find articles on the internet concerning discharging them as one stray discharge incorrectly could not only destry your tv but hurt you or even KILL!!! Ignore any articles that tell you to use a screwdriver. Good luck.

I have the same problem. The next stage is that the picture won't come on at all and the blue light will constantly blink. I think the light source is bad. Noit sure though.
