Question about Westinghouse SK-32H540S 32 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

I have a Westinghouse SK-26H640G HDTV. The set has several symptons. It powers on and off by it self. It jumps from the input menu to the main menu, and it jumps into and through various menu options and sometimes makes adjustment on it own. I am at a loss at what is wrong or how to fix it. Anyone have any ideas?

    Also, what is the best way to open the back on this tv? I have got all the screws out and was able to get some seperation on the top, but I am afraid of breaking the plastic since the rest of the backing is so tightly connected. Is there a trick to removing the back?

Remove the batteries from the remote. Other than that the TV's control board has gone wacky.

I don't know if this will work for everyone, but we were having much the same problem with our Westinghouse LCD TV (which is what led me to this site in the first place.) After a great deal of experimentation we have found that if we keep the backlight setting at 3 or lower we do not have the problem. If we try to view it on the level 4, 5 or 6 setting the picture goes crazy after 5-15 minutes and does not clear up until the set has been turned off for about 30 minutes. Good luck! I hope this works for you too.

The same thing was happening to mine and the problem was in the power supply. Apparently, there was a loose connection causing it to go in and out. The round connector end that plugs into the monitor has two prongs on the inside. I was able to bend each prong toward the center with a thumb tack so that it would have a tighter connection, and it now works fine. Unplug from wall before working on the prongs.

Westinghouse sk-32h540s TV, VGA input, image can't center.

Hello, two things, one try using the TV with the native resolution of 1366 X 768, and secondly try updating your video card. If you are not having this issue with the TV on the other inputs than most likely it is a settings issue with the laptop. Please rate this comment if it was helpful.

My Westinghouse SK-32H640G LCD TV has picture but no sound. Its hooked up with HDMI cable, I've checked audio settings and TV speakers are on, and also have tried both HDMI ports on TV please help!

Hello, these are fairly new units as they have not been out in the market for that long. With that said I would recommend checkin if the audio is good using other inputs like the Tuner, Component (yPbPr) or simply RCA cables, if there is sound than mostlikely you will need to replace the main board. I would recommend to call Westinghouse customer care at 1800-701-0680 for further assistance.

Unable to get signal input when i connect my pc

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
