Westinghouse SK-32H540S 32 in. LCD TV - Page 6 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Try unplugging the set and hold the power on button in for about a minute, then plug it back in and see if it works, chances are this won't help but try it before going any farther on what board is bad.

Too generic of a description. List more detail.
are there any lights on the set
did it make any noises or smells or unsolicited imaged or operation?
is the power plugged into the cable box? did the surge kill it?
did it ever work after the surge?
too may question not enough information
good luckk

From all that I've found while researching this it appears that the Westinghouse Smart TV's are limited to the Factory Installed Apps and no more can be added/downloaded, etc. This is common with the less expensive tv's & many other consumer electronics, including many cell phones. I'll post a few pics from people asking similar questions on the technical suppourt sections of a few websites.
I have a 3D Plasma Samsung and it's "Smart" features aren't very impressive. So I have dealt with this very situation and know it's a bit frustrating. Fortunately, there an easy solution.
Here's what you must do if you want more features/apps aside from what you've got that's pre-installed on your TV:
1.) You must hook up another device to your TV to enjoy these features, you'll be using another device with a separate remote control but it'll be displayed directly on your tv screen, plus you can program the remote to operate your TV as well so only 1 remote is needed.
Pick up an inexpensive "Smart" BluRay or DVD Player that has a lot of apps to begin with, many are likely to have what you're looking for already installed from the factory, just get one that allows you to add/remove apps freely, a sales associate in any electronics department should know the features of the different units so tell them what you want and they'll see to that you get the right one. I'm including a photo of one from Wal-Mart that's inexpensive, just as an example.
2.) You can do the same things and ultimately much more if you don't mind using a Video Game System. I'm sure if you don't have one lying around a friend or family member does and these are capable of so much. I have used a Sony PlayStation 3, XBox 360, and a few 3D Smart BluRay Players- I like the video game console option best personally so I can add all kinds of stuff like music and pictures, etc. The Game Systems have large hard drives so lots of storage space for everything, including new apps and you'll have Plenty of Space for downloads like TV Episodes, Movies, & More.
3.) You can use a Roku Device or Amazon Firestick as well, they're always evolving and you should check the Roku and Amazon Websites for the latest models plus the features and capabilities they offer. Some have a monthly subscription cost but you pay 1 price(that's actualky quite low) and this gives you access to many of the most popular apps like Hulu, Netflix, Etc. and many more for one price and you don't have to make and keep up with individual accounts and passwords, billing info., etc. for all of them so this is a convenient option that's inexpensive.
You have a few options, I'd say get a good used Playstation 3 Check with people you know and I'll bet someone has a good gaming console that's not in use and never will be again(they're really cheap these days since they're "outdated" but still have state of the art technology to handle anything needed for the purposes we're talking about and much more! So, before you shop around just ask a friend, family members, maybe one of your kids, nieces, nephews, their friends, etc. if they have one they'll donate and show you the basics of using it. If you already like video games and have a newer gaming console like a PS3/PS4 or XBOX 360/XBOX ONE already just use it. I use mine instead of my Samsung or Toshiba 3D Blu Ray Players because of the convenience and more functions/options they offer.
A $40-$50 Smart DVD Player is all that's necessary, but you may want to explore these other options depending on your personal preferences!

Sounds like the power supply board might be faulty. Another place to look is the relay that powers the TV either by remote control or the button on the TV

please be more clear what the issue is

That's a technical fault and can't be solved by a non tech personal. So, contact service centre.

Westinghouse... | Answered on Feb 03, 2019 | 39 views

The buttons on the set are stuck or the circuit that decodes the button presses have malfunctioned

A schematic for the capacitors? I do not believe there is such a thing. A capacitor is a capacitor and does not have a schematic.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.
{View the site in web view by Mobile or a desktop to see the search box. Mobile view has no search box.}/

Verify if you choose the correct input, in this case HDMI if your source is HDMI..change that on the remote control INPUT or SOURCE

Applicable code(s) would be in a compatible remote control.
