Larry Autry: I've had my UW40TC1W "refurb" for three years. I wish it would play media via the USB but I got my money's worth. Not a bad TV at all.
Off the subject but in case you're interested, on this model you can connect Component video in with a VGA to component adapter connected to the TVs VGA connector. I go my adapter from Amazon. Monoprice has them, too.
Winston Aarons: Hi i am a repair tech there is a Westinghouse led TV with the top half of the screen blurred and the bottom half perfect picture . If any one has solved this problem let me know it will be appreciated! Also i had a magnavo flat screen TV no power light ( red light at the front) the fault was the power board. I then check for what the fault is on the power board a faulty small signal transistor c3032. This is on one of the inverter
Jackle61: How did you know the power board was the problem? Did you test it somehow or just assume that was the problem? I'd hate to shell out $110 if this is not my problem. Mine turns off,, but will turn itself back on eventually.
David Evans: A friend bought mine Dec 2014 and today it completely went out
david fried: My 32 inch makes a screeching sound, after 15 seconds, the screen goes black. After leaving plugged for 3 hours, it eventually turns on after I unplug and replug. I hope this is an ez fix
charday Benson: Really wished i seen this b4 i bought it
Soccertz1: I have a question, my Westinghouse gets multicolors like green, pink and blue every so often. These colors are on the brightest parts of the screen. I also get vertical lines of all colors. The thing that works for me is turning tv off then on and another lol is hitting the top of the tv makes it go back to a good picture. Anyone have any idea what's wrong with the tv?
ChasMtnMan: Howdy Mano,
I reckon we are lucky as our Westinghouse 32" is 5 years old, but exactly same problem as you describe. Our screen goes black in a minute or so. We took your advice and contacted the supplier, but unfortunately they were out of stock for the part number I found on our unit after we took it apart like you instructed. THANKS for your instructional Video. Hopefully we can solve our problem like you did. The replacement power panel is now $129 plus about $12 shipping. ~Charles~
rayn: i have that same tv how do you know it doesn't work for it if you don't mind me asking.

Ice Mario: Very similar to my story. Except it wasn't black friday and we got it because we thought it had the best picture. It also started having audio/video and power issues within a week after the 2 year warranty mark.
Javier Perez: You can get parts for Westinghouse TV's at good prices from interliquidparts
Casey Babylon: I just bought a westinghouse in april 2013 and it turns off all by itself, not sure that I need a power surge or what. Other than that it is good. Guess it sounds like I will be assed out in three years. Darn money pincher. LOL! Talking about myself!
Mano Gil: I'm sorry to hear that.
sd99944: Doesn't help for the 32" LD-3260. So pissed.
humby123: I thought I would save money by buying a westinghouse on black friday. 3 days after the 1 year warranty it decides to not turn on. Worthless piece of trash. You get what you pay for.
Mano Gil: Thanks Jeremy. After making these videos I realized that I had no idea of the name of the parts but I knew what i needed to do to get the TV to work again. And i did. Since I installed the new inverter board the TV has been working flawlessly. Thank you for your comment and good luck with your TV.
jeremyhall420: Those are not transistors they are the back light power cables for your back lights. Inverter boards are most common to mess up in LCD Televisions.Also one of the harder things to find as a part that still works. I hope you can get this TV working I am working on a 47" sanyo that has two inverter boards in it and they run around $45 a piece.. Im not 100% that is my problems either, it could turn out to be the main board. I Wouldn't mind replacing them anyways.
SpideySensei72: Mine barely lasted a year before going black. I'll never buy another Westinghouse.
ijosef: My folks have the Westinghouse SK-32H240S and it developed this exact same issue. Unfortunately the power inverter boards are sold out everywhere and unlikely to be restocked. There are price gougers selling used boards on eBay for over $100, but I'm not going to spend that kind of money on a used part with questionable reliability. I might try to repair it myself with one of those capacitor kits, although my research tells me the little transformers sometimes go out too.
Blog Dir: Building the website was not the hard part, but monetizing it was a whole new story. Thanks for the guidance about adsense. I am finally getting some money for my business directory. This is good for both business owners and customers. Keep building quality site and everyone wins.
