I had the same problem and fixed it with a new backlight inverter board. It was a pretty easy install. The part is available on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Inverter-for-Dell-W1700-17-inch-LCD-TV_W0QQitemZ400017456720QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

Check the horizontal scan output section circuit for any fault. Check whether the filament of the CRT is glowing. If it does, the horizontal section circuit is working, and you have to troubleshoot all other voltages at its video output circuit. Check the CRT base socket too. If it has any faulty connections, this kind of fault can occur.

Since you said the the pictur tube is glowing, your EHT system is OK.
After selecting a channel if sound is alright the TV up to signal
detection is working OK.

The problem now could be in video amplifier circuits. Check the grid
voltages of the picture tube.
Or switch off TV, and check the resistance values of the resistors
connected to the picture tube pins. Replace the defective resistor.


Check after removing one end of the resitor as it will misguide you if in circuit.

When Blackout mode is turned on, the monitor display will turn off to
reduce power consumption.
This additional power enhances the sound quality.
1 Touch [VISUAL] on the main source screen.
The VISUAL selection screen is displayed.
2 Touch [OFF].
The backlit-display portion goes out.
3 Touch [OFF] again to cancel the display backlight.
To make the setting, set to “Setting the VISUAL Touch Button” (page

TV or Satellite Box Problem?


Do you have a VCR or DVD recorder? If yes, set it to record what you are watching. After a "blackout" rewind the tape and review it. If there is a blackout on the tape, the problem is the sallite box, if not, it is the TV! QED
