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?

HD 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:


Convertor Coupons


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.

Hi there, i have a Dell tv model W3000 lately the tv does not turn on at all,i know power is there but the tv does not comes on. sometimes it comes on but it does not last....if i turn the tv off it does...


This is the way all of these fail. Don't buy Dell TV's.
Try this internet posted solution.
Turn on TV with remote control, if the TV does not light-up, find the Main Power Switch. Turn the switch off, then turn it on, the TV lights-up. Probably caused by poor contacts due to age and low quality parts.

Have you verified #1 that your outlet is putting out 120 VAC? Have to checked input power fuse inside chasis? What about a stuck power on switch? Unplug all access. except the TV and try powering it on.

W3000, power and audio but not picture


Yes I tried it and now I have nothing, not even a green light. So much for that. I have 2 of these sets. If you never unplug them from 110 I never have a problem. Un plug them and wait 2-3 days and nothing.
Any lawyers what to take this on?

Don't buy Dell TV's. I have been fighting this problem for years.
A royal pain. Now there is no red in the picture. All blue and beige.

My solution? New TV and ABSOLUTELY NO DELL!!!

Dell w3000 & PS3


This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.

Dell w3000 has green power on no video just audio only


Had same problem as described by others, green light, audio, but no picture. Decided to look inside. Layed the TV face down on three textbooks (1 at top & 1 at left & Right) so that back (9 large screws & 2 small screws) could be removed along with stand. From the power supply (board that 110v AC plugs into) there is a cable connected to a circuit board on the left (again looking from the back of the TV) covered by metal shielding. Unplug this cable clean the male contacts with a miniture wire brush (bought mine at Home Depot) & plug the cable back into the socket. With rubber gloves (just to be safe) plug the AC cord into the back of the TV & wall and turn on your TV. The bulbs should activate in 7 - 8 seconds. Reassemble the back of the TV & install the stand. Enjoy your TV Doug
