Dell TV Audio out on my 32 inch 3201C

I can't believe it. I have the same problem. I blamed it on my parrot and cross wiring. I thought because he ate the wiring a bit and this was the problem and it blew out the set. It seems to be not the case. I can't get the audio board for my tv from Dell (same thing send it to their servicing out in Ohio) and Dell says they don't make the part anymore which is ******** and I have someone that will repair it. I want to fix this one not buy a new set. It is only 3 years old.

SOURCE: Sharp TV Audio Problem

Almost all intermittent audio or audio failure problems with Sharp Aquos LC**D4U, LC**D5U, LC**D6U, and LC**D7U televisions are the result of a relatively simple design flaw involving the heatsink pad compound used on the Tripath TA-2024 amplifier chip (IC2502) found on the A/V board. This compound has a fairly low melting point and, over time, tends to seep out from between both top and bottom heatsinks onto the legs of this chip as well as onto circuitry immediately surrounding it. Further, over time the seeping compound also becomes somewhat conductive creating bridges which short the audio amplifier circuit causing everything from intermittent audio to complete audio failure.

Fortunately, in almost every case audio can be completely restored by cleaning the old compound from both top/bottom heatsinks and from both sides of the PC board in the area immediately surrounding the chip (I used rubbing alcohol which worked quite well). Sharp has issued a service bulletin addressing this issue (LCDTV-194) wherein a ‘2502 Heat Kit’ is specified. This kit is Sharp Part Number: PSPKIT663WJZZ and is available from circuitcity.partsearch.com for $19.95. However, it’s entirely possible to get by with the heat pad only, Sharp Part Number: PSPAZA663WJKZ for only $9.95. Please note that board replacement for this problem is almost never necessary, so if you’re working with a repair technician be sure and insist that he/she be certain to try cleaning the old board and replacing the aforementioned heatsink pads before charging you for a new board.

If one is reasonably familiar with electronics disassembly/reassembly and is willing to take their time, this can even be a DIY project. It is possible to find ‘important service references’ by simply entering LC26D4U (the 5, 6, and 7 series are very similar, and this information covers all screen sizes) into the search field at eserviceinfo.com. This will greatly aid in disassembly/reassembly of the TV, as the A/V board is somewhat ‘buried’ under other boards. Please refer to post # 373 at avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=647174&page=13 for pics of the information detailed here.

Particular thanks are owed ‘Aureius’ of the AVS forums for his research efforts concerning this issue !

the problem is the audio amp board has been fried. It needs to be replaced. This will restore the actual sound transfer to and from the speakers.

SOURCE: scratched 32" screen

Your third option is to repair the scratches ! If you search you can find products sold to do just that.
One example is http://www.janvil.com/plastic_polish.htm?gclid=CO_f08iL75gCFQ0gQgodpEm00g
What ever product you try, you should try it on a small inconspicuous place first to see if it works. The idea is to get the scratches to be invisible with the tv on so test it that way. Search for more products - this was only one I found. I am not affiliated with that company.

SOURCE: I have the same problem with my 3 year old Dell 32 inch Tv

The audio amplifier board has a number of components covered with a tough brown waxy, rubbery potting compound. Very careful and tedious removal of this compound exposed many corroded component solder joints. The problem created by this potting technique is apparently a common problem with this sound board. In my case cleaning the corrosion of the circuit board proved to correct the sound failure problem. (Not for the faint of heart).

I have a 32 inch LG4000 with built in DVD. Poor Audio


Luke,
You are not asking too much and I believe that you can solve this problem in a menu option on your TV. Most systems designed to work with surround sound and/or by itself have some audio options that are designed to simulate or work in concert with surround sound. Start by looking around your TV menu options for something labeled digital audio compression or something like it. Sometimes there will also be a function in a menu to "simulate" surround sound attributes. Try to change these to factory or default settings, and if that still sounds the same try changing the settings around until you hear more accurate audio.

Dell 32 inch LCD Tv volume and menue problems


We also have a 32" LCD Dell flat screen tv #W3201C that has no sound. It's about 2/12 yrs old. One speaker started having a problem and we disconnected it. That was a couple weeks ago, now there is no sound at all. Dell should not be let off the hook so easily. Obviously there is a problem with the tv and it should be Dell's responsibility to make it right. Does anyone know if a class action suit has been initiated?

23 inch lcd tv by dell wont turn on as if no power


if this is a DELL W3201C read this.

Have the same model and same problem
probably It is a bad inverter board, in my case one of the 16 transformers is burnt out on the inverter board. still trying to find a replacement component. if not replacing the board is the only option or getting the inverter board repaired.

by the way, this TV has a Samsung panel: model LTA320W2-L03. so it needs parts for a Samsong not a DELL.
DELL does not manufacture or fix them becuase they don't make them
