UHF needs a UHF antenna most all channel antennas do not work good on UHF,
Try the set at a friends house that does get those channels. UHF is harder to get and that is why a UHF only antenna is needed by most people. Lots of antennas are junk do a search and you will find the 8 bay C/M is rated the best by a large margin.
A good antenna amp at the antenna is also needed it should be a low noise one. A search will show the ones that work best.
The Gov. as much as lied to us and the TV Stations the type of digital they forced on us is the wrong one and millions of people even with a great antenna have lost TV.

My Westinghouse SK-32H240S television fails showing picture. Only sound can we hear but no picture.

Westinghouse... | Answered on Aug 06, 2009


HI,
Question title shows you have Westinghous SK-32H240S LCD TV, if its correct...
Problem seems with back light inverter board. You can confirm it as when screen becomes blank / dark, point flash light / torch on screen and try to see faint image. If that faint image is there then its back light board inverter problem and that board requires replacement.
Let me know the results to move further or if it is different model and brand TV, please intimate its details.
Thanks.

They are now sending me a new TV

Westinghouse... | Answered on Jun 03, 2009


Yep, your mainboard is damaged.

Replace it and your tv will work again

Westinghouse... | Answered on Jun 02, 2009


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. TV WAS FINE UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO. OF COURSE ITS OUT OF WARRANTY. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ, AND BEEN TOLD, IT IS THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE UNIT. IT IS DEFECTIVE, OR IT OVERHEATS AND TRIES TO SHUT DOWN. A LAW SUIT IS IN PROGRESS AGAINST WESTINGHOUSE TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER. KINDA REMINDS ME OF THE XBOX 360'S WHEN THEY CAME OUT. ALL YOU CAN DO IS TAKE IT IN FOR SERVICE. OR, YOU CAN KEEP TURNING IT ON AND OFF, LIKE I DO. I HAVE HAD THIS TV ON ALL NIGHT BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEMS. AS SOON AS I START CHANGING STATIONS, OUT IT GOES. GOOD LUCK. WESTINGHOUSE WILL NOT EVEN EMAIL ME. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONTACT THEM. I HAVE HEARD FROM THE LAW FIRM IN CALIFORNIA THAT IS GOING AFTER THEM. GO ONLINE, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE.

The video processor is having some issues. This is not likely an LCD Panel problem.

Since it is after 5 minutes it is probably cold solder. My guess is the video processor will be a fairly large IC with a big Heat Sink on top (or some other cooling method)

Westinghouse... | Answered on May 18, 2009


This is a backlight or inverter (power supply for backlight) failure.

These parts may be availble. The backlights are difficult to replace. If not careful, you will break the LCD Material of the LCD Panel when replacing backlights

Westinghouse... | Answered on May 18, 2009


This is a Backlight Bulb or Inverter (power supply for backlight) failure.
If in warranty, take it to service
You can try to order an Inverter, or if needed you can get a replacement bulb (not easily available)
