Your tv has a faulty backlight inverter board, a common issue on LCD televisions that causes the problem you have mentioned. You will need to get the part replaced as component level repair is not possible , Part number is I320B1-16A and costs around 60-75$.

Let me know if you need more help,

Isee so many here with no sound/no picture issues:


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checkingvoltages on the main power board to narrow down the problem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed

Look on the power supply board in the set for puffed up and bad caps like these.

It was a pleasure talking to you on the phone. As a recap I you have a customers flat screen tv at your shop because they brought it in to you because the TV would not turn on. You have the TV, and it wont turn on even manually, you test the out put amps and all seem to be normal.

Here is my advice first, is sense the customer did not drop off the remote, it is possible, that if you get the remote from the customer and make sure there is good batteries in it, is take out batteries and replace them with new batteries and try to turn it on, if this still does not work, then this is most likely what it is and needs to be replaced, I am 99% sure if after trying the remote with new batteries still does not turn on the set, then you have a blown capacitor. If you replace the capacitor, this will most likely solve the problem. capacitors get what we call swollen, and that is cause by surges, storms shutting off power etc,,,, So, again, if remote does not work after trying this, next step is try replacing the capacitor. Let me know, mike from fixya.

The power supply is not the only thing that can cause this problem. There is a chance that the main A/V board could be faulty. Though I would put my money on the power supply. Testing the stb 5V line to ensure that its there would confirm it. I can help you test it if you have a multimeter and know how to use it.

The green screen problem appears if analog signal is fed to a digital circuit. Since this is usally not possible externally I suspect the ADC circuits on the main A/V board have failed. Replacing the same should resolvfe your problem.

Hello Vernacamp, if you are technical you can open the unit, you will most likely need to replace one of the transformers or a capacitor on the power/inverter board. If you are not that technical you can open the back cover and you will need to replace the whole board, if you provide me the TW# located on the back of the TV I can give you the part # you will need to replace along with some websites where you can find the part. Please rate my answer if it was helpful.

This problems are the tv 1 or 2 long LCD inverter boards are dead.These 1 or 2 long LCD inverter boards provide the tv LCD screen pannel a backlight to produce a picture.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy those refurbishes 1 or 2 long LCD inverter boards for the replacement.

I had the same problem today with the same symptoms. I tried a power reset, removing the cables, checked all inputs and got the same symptoms.

I found a temporary fix. When I turned the TV on, I immediately press the backlight but on the remote until the bar appears then lower the setting down to 10. This may take a couple of tries of powering the TV off/on. Once I got the setting lowered to 10, the picture stayed on. If you invoke any of the presets it will change this setting. I'm going to call someone and try to get more information on a permanent fix.

I hope this helps, at least I got the picture back.

This is not the fix for this TV. I guarantee that none of the capacitors exhibit the common bulging characteristics of a faulty capacitor. The common answers to everyone's questions are to replace the capacitors. Most likely the culprit is the inverter board.

You need to replaced your Inverter Board, If you can do the job, get the Board Part number and order it from Westinghouse. If not call a Professional TV Technician. At least you have an idea what's the trouble with your set. Hope this Tip will help you.Thanks

It is probably a poor connection through the coax. I would replace the coax and that may resolve the issue.
