TV picture went out but I can still listen to it. TV is a Westinghouse Model # LTV-32w4HDC, Type No. SLT32D.

TV picture went out but I can still listen to it. TV is a Westinghouse Model # LTV-32w4HDC, Type No. SLT32D. Technician said it is the T-Con & would check price for parts with Westinghouse. Westinghouse does not have this part at the moment and that they could not give him a price until the part is available. The Tech said that now it seems as Westinghouse is not selling this T-Con separately anymore that this T-con is now sold with the screen attached???? First, what is this T-con? I have called the Tech today so that I can get better clarification of what this T-Con is and waiting for him to return my call. In the meantime, he is waiting on Westinghouse. So, I thought I would do my own research and see if I could order and find out the cost of this part, possibly through Searsdirect.com, or some other place. I contacted Sears Direct and they where not sure since we are unsure of what T-Con is. Would it possibly be the power board assembly? Could you tell me what this is?

At any rate, I gave a $50 deposit which will be applied towards parts and labor and the tech said the cost would be around $220.00 total, but that was before he found out that the T-con has to be bought with the screen, or that is the way Westinghouse is selling it, which doesn't make sense or is this part now attached to the screen????

I would love clarification on this and any advice you can suggest. With the prices of TV's that are a lot less, I could actually by an RCA TV/Combo DVD, same 32 with 60 hz, as what mine is, a sale price of $409.00 plus tax. For $200 more I could buy a brand new TV. However $200 is $200. But the price to repair now may be over $220 if you have to buy this part with the screen, which doesn't make sense. I do believe the Tech is honest, but one can never tell. I am waiting to hear back from him so I can do more research and perhaps I could order the part myself and a manul to do it myself.

Thank you & appreciate your help.

Kind Regards,

I know how expensive it can be to have to make a major repair on a television, I watch t.v most of my day so I hope to be of some help to you.
