Try turning the master power on and off a few times. Give it a few secs inbetween power offs and that should work. It's worked for me. Sometimes it takes longer that other times to show a picture.

Just fixed the second one of these for someone--was sound and at first loss of picture--then sound only---remove cover, remove metal shield over power and digital/signal board====take close look at both plugs from panel to digital board(top towards left) both units I have fixed the left plug and SOCKET were out of the board---detached---other plug looks ok---resolder left plug with very fine solder tip-----both sets had same trouble! good lead free solder?

Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition
of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Dell will still offer it, or you can buy the convertor (with a $40 coupon) that many sets need.
You can order (backorder from what I read) the coupons here:
After surveying many of the set-top convertors, I bought Zinwell ZAT-970 units for two older sets not currently in use but will now serve as backups when our sexy flat panels die like so many.

Mine turned red. Had a bad HDMI cable. TV is missing part of the video feed. Try a new cable but first make sure old cable is in all the way.
