Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Hi, I've been reading your post and you make good sense. I wonder if you can help.
My problem started with a 3rd of the screen going black. Then I heard a snap and no pic or sound. The green light is on in the back and the blue light comes on by the manual buttons. I took it to a repair place and they went to replace the main board, then then found a bad Y board. They said we can keep going on replacing parts but it will be too expensive. They took out the new main and put back in the old. What do I do and where do I start. I see a few of these boaqrds on eBay, I figure I can replace a few and see what happens, but I'll need your guidence.Is there a tech sight on Dell for trouble shooting. Please Help me. Thanks!
I have solution for common problem with Dell W4201C. There are two Y Buffer boards that are failing and could show problem as bunch of horizontal lines or even dead set.
I do have boards in stock. If you need them, please contact me at email@example.com

There is no Dell tech site for servicing the TV, there are no user servicable componets in the TV.
If the TV is uneconomically repairable, then I'd say cut your losses and buy a replacement.
I wish I had better news but with the cost of repairs increasing and the cost of replacements dropping older TV's are quickly becoming disposable rather than repairable.
here is an example:

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
