I found 2 different sources online that list the weight as either 61.1 lbs or 68.1 lbs. I think the 61.1 is more accurate for the bare TV without the stand or anything attached. But keep in mind that when mounting a flat panel TV to a wall, you should secure it with hardware rated for much higher weight tolerances. Many mounting brackets for TVs of this size are rated for 150 - 200 lbs, and for good reason. Consider a situation where someone trips and catches his balance on the wall-mounted TV. The TV is already putting 61 lbs of pressure on the bracket, so any force from any other contact is added to that. It doesn't take much to add up to 100 lbs or more. If the mount breaks free from the wall, you'll have damage to the TV, the wall, the mount, and any furniture or flooring beneath the TV, so the best advice is to mount it as if it weighed about 150 lbs. The 7 lbs +/- difference in reported weights won't matter at all.

Westinghouse model tx-42f430s won't power on


That problem is usually have 2 causes..Its either power supply board or main board..

Please take this steps on how to determine the problem:
1. Open the back cover.
2. Check the power supply output...It should have 5vdc for the main board..12vdc or 16vdc for the audio and 24vdc for the back-light inverter..
3. If those 3 voltage supplies have encountered voltage drop...The problem could be on power supply board..
4. If the power supply output is normal..The problem could be on the main board...
5. If the problem is power supply you should check if the capacitors are bulged on the top and try to replaced it..If you can't do that you can purchased new power supply board..
6. If the problem is on main board there is no D.I.Y repair on that so you need to buy a new main board that fits to your TV..
Hope this solution will be helpful..

Thanks for using fixya...

I own a Samsung DLP 56" TV for which I purchased a swivel wall mounting bracket that holds up to 160 Lbs of weight. However when looking at the back of the tv set and the such smal size screws that...


Yes it will hold,the wall mount u bought it design for weight of 160 LBS and 50"-60" screen sized right?Just make sure hook up the wall mount on and over a wall area with strong woods beams supports have many fours by fours woods beams lumbers to take off the stress of the holding of the tv by those screws alone of the screen frame screws supports only.

More likely it's because of power circuit of your TV set. If you are not trained enough in repairing TV sets, appeal to your local repair center

TX-42F430S Lock up on power up


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.
