Needed new backlight inverter after owning for 2 years

Summary: We purchased this tv from Walmart. Not purchased through Amazon. I would not buy Westinghouse brand again. It seemed like a great deal at the time, but after 2 years it lost the picture, but still had sound. We purchased a new backlight inverter from shopjimmy.com, and we will be fixing the tv ourselves. We will be saving a lot of money doing the work ourselves. The parts cost us $90. We looked at several Youtube videos on how to fix it. Youtube was very helpful.
Summary: The picture went out on this TV two weeks of use or about 15 hours of use. Called customer service and it was fixed under warrenty as they sent a technician to our home to put in the replacement part. The tehnician pointed out how cheap the capacitors are in this TV. After the first fix the TV worked flawlessly for about 8 months then started acting up again. On the ninth month the screen went black and all we get is sound.
Summary: Me and my sisters bought this for our mother since her projections tv went bad, we got her this since it was a good deal, and its being going completely bright green on the screen a few times already! Google Westinghouse Green Screen, it seems alot of people are having the same problem with this brand. Go to reliable brand.
Summary: Do not purchase the used models of this TV from Amazon (other anywhere else for that matter). Please read the following for why. I'd be very careful purchasing either one of these TVs. I can assure you at least 1 of them is returned as I was the one who returned it. I'm also fairly confident the other one was also returned. When I purchased my TV there had been 3 of these TVs available used. By the time I purchased mine there was only 1 left.
Summary: I just received this TV and I have to warn people not to buy it! The picture is so bad, even on HD channels. My old HD projection TV has a better picture! I am SERIOUSLY concidering sending it back. You get what you pay for I guess. There are also White patches when the screen is supposed to be totaly Black. There are also very few options as far as the picture goes...
Summary: excellent price on tv, got it in and a few days when i had help, mounted mounting brackets on wall, hung tv on brackets. turned the tv on and the lcd tv had internal spider-like cracks all thru the screen. really think that the problem lied with the shipping company (pilot) for the shipping box was punctured what looked like a fork-lift blade even though i don't know for sure. called amazon and was told no problem, did i want a refunded or a replacement.
Summary: I just recently purchased the Westinghouse VR-6025Z, the TV size and design is fine, that are the positives. The negatives are way too numerous to keep up with. I should have figured by the design of the cheap remote control that the TV was going to be a dud. First off, the resolution on the TV is very pixilated, grainy, and choppy especially if you are streaming movies from Netflix or watching dvd, I have high band width and the picture on my Samsung Plasma is 100 time...
Summary: This has to be the worst quality I have ever seen ! Bought from Wal-Mart on-line and had a defective TV sent to me.( Black spot the size of a dime in the screen ) Swapped it out and after 2 months this one is going bad. Last week, the top half of the picture started flickering. I also thought "American company" but found out it's made by a no-name company in China. DON'T TOUCH THIS ONE EVEN IF THE PRICE TEMPTS YOU.
Summary: I PURCHASED THIS TV THINKING IT WAS A GOOD DEAL AND THINKING BUY AMERICAN. DON'T BE FOOLED. THIS TV IS NOTHING BUT A BIG TV MONITOR. AFTER I GOT IT I FOUND OUT IT HAS NO AUDIO OUT CONNECTION. YOU CAN'T HOOK UP A SOUND SYSTEM OR A SET OF HEAD PHONE OR S SOUND BAR TO IT. ONLY AN AMERICAN COMPANY LIKE WESTINGHOUSE WOULD MAKE A TV THAT HAS NO AUDIO OUT JACKS ON IT. IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A OPTICAL HOOK UP. NOTHING AT ALL. THE SOUND IS NOT LOUD ENOUGH FOR ANYTHING.
Television displays colored bars after 5-10 minutes of viewing.

Summary: After watching the television for 5-10 minutes, a series of colored bars are shown and the television must be restarted. Trying to contact westinghouse about this, but I hope we can return this.
