Black screen on Westinghouse

Fri Mar 18, 2011 8:26 pm

I bought a Westinghouse 40" 3.5 months ago. Everything was working great then suddenly the screen when black while watching a movie. The audio still worked just no picture. When I turn it on, the power button turns on, but the Westinghouse logo does not appear and stays black.

Sounds like the inverter. Should be under warranty unless it's used. Try looking at the picture from a heavy angle and see if you can see the shadow of an image. Also try shining a flashlight onto the surface at a steep angle and see if the image is there. If an image is there, it's the inverter.

There isn't a picture when at a different angle or when a light is shined on it. It should be under warranty but it was a gift so I don't have the receipt.
