7 Steps To Fix Westinghouse TV Black Screen No Picture

Unplug Your TV

The first and most straightforward solution is to unplug your TV from the wall and wait for 60 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reset your TV and often fix the issue. It’s important to note that this is different from switching your remote on and off.

Unplug Your TV

Change TV’s Remote Batteries

One of the easiest methods to try is to change the batteries on your remote control. Sometimes, you only need a fresh set of batteries to power the TV back on. I try this method before going to step into further tricky procedures.

Make sure that you clean the battery contact points before inserting new batteries. Because, sometimes, debris sticks all over contact points which hinders the power flow from the batteries.

Change Power Outlet

Sometimes, there has been low voltage transferred by the main power source due to a damaged power outlet.

So, We will plug the TV into another wall outlet. Sometimes, a particular outlet might have gone bad, and doing this will ensure that you are getting the correct source of power to your TV. Just try plugging it into a different wall outlet.

Check HDMI Cables and Power Cords

There have been scenarios where we have seen that power cords and HDMI cables are damaged or improperly connected which causes various issues such as a Black screen or No picture with sound or No Sound on Westinghouse TV.

Must check all the cables that are plugged into your TV, including the power cable and HDMI cables. Make sure they are plugged in all the way, as sometimes they may get a little loose, not providing your TV with the proper connection it needs to power on.

Make sure your HDMI cable is securely plugged into the back of the connector. If you use a fire stick or Roku, check that as well. Ensure that the cable is not too short.

Check HDMI Cables and Power Cords

Update Westinghouse System Firmware

If your sound is still not working, You may need to check your TV Firmware.

  • Go to the settings menu by clicking on the home button on your remote and select “Settings.”
Westinghouse Settings
  • Go to “System”  > “System Update.”
System Update
  • If there is an update available, download and install it. After the update is complete, try the sound again.
  • You must notice that by updating System Software, Many Sony users have resolved the blinking red light.

Factory Reset Everything

If all else fails, you can try a factory reset, which will reset everything back to factory default settings. This means you will need to set up everything again from scratch, including your language, region, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi password, Netflix, Amazon, and any other settings you had before. To do a factory reset:

  • Go to the settings menu by clicking on the home button on your remote and selecting “Settings.”
  • Go to “System” and then “Advanced System Settings.”
  • Go to “Factory Reset” and follow the on-screen instructions to reset everything.

Note that every TV will have a different four-digit pin, which should be located on the bottom right-hand side of the TV.

TV’s backlight

If none of the above methods have helped you, you need to check the backlight of your TV. Because sometimes it is broken which is un-noticeable as we haven’t checked it.

An easy way to check it is to turn on your TV and bring a flashlight in front of it and turn it on.

Now, try to look closely at the TV’s screen and check if there is an image shown to you.

If you can see any picture or text, it probably means that your Baclicklight has failed and it needs to repair. Backlight also causes the TV Screen to flicker.
