Question about Dell W3706MC 37 in. LCD HDTV
When I turn on the TV the blue Dell name that appears on the screen is not a solid DELL name,there is white scratch drag marks on the name,then as the picture starts to appear little squares appear (white & Black)all across the TV screen with the picture in the background for about 30 seconds,then the squares clear up the picture appears but is distorted,----by distorted I mean the picture looks like it is plastic looking with shadows and some double imaging,this as been going on for the last couple of months,it does correct itself after about a hour or so,and stays a great picture for as long as the TV stays on,I have had all cable connections checked, all ok, I have done all factory reboots done no luck or improvement.the sound is perfect no problems.
Dell have no idea, and as it is out of warranty they do not want to know,and tell me to get outside help,Dell do tell me that this TV was built with different parts Phillips,Sanyo and Toshiba? so they tell me, and no TV repair shop in My town of Abbotsford BC will touch it..
Please any advise is greatly appreciated.
Sounds like a bad video board. No easy way to fix a bad video board. It needs to be replaced. That is why the repair shops will not fix it; they do not stock video boards for all models. And it is a pain to track one down all of a sudden. Once a warranty is up, you are running on bonus time. Electrical components have a definite lifespan. It is possible to recover some money by selling it "as-is" online somewhere. You could get 200-400 for it broken, pretty easy I suppose.
