Hello, this is an interesting one since on this unit what ever the device you are using will determin the type of audio you output on the speakers. I would love to troubleshoot a bit more with you live, can you please send me an email of how to get in contact with you to westytech@wde.com.

I know this is late, but this happens frequently. If anyone else has the same problem try unplugging the TV for 60 seconds. Plug it back in and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds. That will reset the TV.
You should see the Westinghouse logo come up and the HDMI should work. This has happened twice with my TV in 1 year.

The fact that you do not have any indicator lights whatsoever means that your power supply is defective.

Open up the back and check for bubbled capicators. This is a common issue in Westinghouse LCDs where the power supply would fail easily, most likely caused by a power surge. If you see any bubbled capacitors, you could try just changing them with the right voltage and fared ratings but sometime they can be hard to find since many have high voltage ratings. make sure they are in the right orientation.

If this does not fix it or if you just want to go the easy route, just order the power supply. That is guaranteed to solve the problems and is much easier to replace.

since your tv is almost new it should be under warranty. call the place where you bought it and tell them you need to have your warranty honored.

It may be a problem with the DVRs. You can rule that out by connecting a different HDMI TV to one of the DVRs.

There are several fixes for this problem.

1) You can unplug the TV for a few minutes and try again.

2) You can turn off the TV then hold the Power button down for at least 10 seconds (resets the processor)

3) Go to the settings menu, select factory reset.


Good luck

I have a similar problem with my TX-42F430S; Mine freezes when changing from Comp 1 to Comp 2. unpluging and waiting was the only fix. Just recently my TV just started turning off(after about 30min of watching) and the led will flash blue. I need to unplug for about 10min before it works again. Getting frustrated and I have contacted Westinghouse to send for repair. only had the TV for 3 months; connect to Roger Explorer HD box.

Channels with a decimal are digital. You are probally getting the through the air. Currently mine are all the digital versions of the normal channel. Ie: 5.1 digita version of channel 5. Your's maybe different but if there over air it is probally a local station in digital and you should be happy.

You need the dvi to hdmi cable or the 3 colored component cables.

Danger Danger Will Robinson!!!! Extreme Danger. Your TV has a "Hot Chassis" and when you connect the TV antenna you are Short Circuiting to EARTH. DO NOT USE IT. Take it to a TV repair place. THIS IS LETHAL!! A fault has developed and now the set is "LIVE". BE Careful please this is NO JOKE.
