Hi there

Try replacing the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply section. I started with replacing (2) 860uf 180v caps just after the bridge rectifier and continued along the circuit. Some (15) or so capacitors later,it finally cleared the the horizontal bars and lines and the high pitched noise. It also fixed another intermediate problem of no video, when turning on the power.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa if it helps you.

Thanks

Tv turn on no pic or sound


Try unplugging it for about half an hour, plug back in, if it still does not work, you will have to open it up and do some troubleshooting.
Please see my basic troubleshooting guide here:

Plasma wont turn on? only power button will.


The problem is a $1.09 part. You will need a soldering gun, multimeter, etc.. Or someone else who is electronically inclined.

The fix for it is here:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Dell-W5001C-50quot-plasma-fix/

I have the 46" Dell model with the same problem and this fixed it. Part cost $1.09 plus shipping.
I can't take credit for this persons post so post thanks on fix.

Just note, TV's can hold electricity even after being unplugged. So if you try this keep that in mind. You shouldn't mess with it until an hour or so after you unplug it. Or google "discharging capacitors" to discharge the electricity from the power board. Attempt at your own risk.

Hello. It looks like I have the same problem that you had with your Dell W4200HD.

Where did you find the new power supply for yours?

Also, did you determine that you didn't really need a new power supply and that it was just a connection problem? If yes, could you please give me some help with what you did to get yours working.

Also, do you still have the power supply you took out of your TV? If yes, would you be willing to sell it to me?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Is Dell W4200HD Y-Main board and Dell W4201C HD Y-Main board compatible


The port locations do not seem to line up the same so I'm pretty sure they are not interchangeable

It can be worked on by a local TV repair, then TV was made for Dell by Philips
