I am an actual Dell repair tech for a non-Dell refurbishing company. I fix this model exact model, as well as all the other plasma TV's that Dell has come out with. If you are looking for a replacement part I suggest starting with either the power supply. But if you are electronicly inclined, I suggest taking voltage measurements across the labeled parts on the power supply that are the following: VS, VSCAN, VSET, VE, and VA. These correct voltage measurements are labled on a sticker in the top right corner of the TV. If they all come out right then your best bet would be the Y-main board with both upper and lower buffers. They are the circuit boards on the left hand side of the TV. As far as getting the parts, thats a whole other story but I hope this helps to narrow down your parts search.

This sounds to me like it is a bulb issue, and not something worse, like failed capacitors.
If that is the case, then yes, it is worth repairing it.
You need to get the old bulb out, either by removing it yourself, or by having someone take it out for you, and the take the old bulb to Fry's or BestBuy.
They both keep tv projection bulbs for flat screen tv's in stock.
I hope that I've helped you understand what is going on, and that it helped.
Have a nice day, and good luck.
