Question about Dell W1700 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Dell W1700 picture went out. Still have audio.

I'm attempting to take the back off of the set but am stuck. I can't seem to find screws that hold on the back panel. I tried finding the schematics of this tv online but to no avail.

Do you know how to remove the back of this tv so I can attempt to swap out the inverter?

Also, is the inverter the same as the backlight? How do I differentiate which is at fault?

Thanks,
Neil

    how do you get to the part on slowly tilting the chassis because I can't find the screws. Whenever I try to lift it it, I lift the screen also.

Hi bsut96,
Check the cable between the monitor and the box for damage. Try a new cable. It may be a problem with the input board but it sounds like a cable problem. Let me know what you find and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Controls


Press and hold the menu button (either on the remote or the display itself). Other forums have said you only have to hold it down for 10 seconds, but that isn't accurate. I had to hold my menu down for about 30-45 seconds to unlock the OSD.

No sound dell 32in tv


These are the answers straight from the dell manual. Ensure that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the audio input connectors on your LCD TV and audio output connectors on your PC or Video player. If on certain TV channels you receive a picture but no sound, this means that you do not have the correct TV system. Modify the SYSTEM setting. Check if TV volume is turn off of muted Connect the audio cable securely Audio cable is connected incorrectly Verify that the audio source is selected correctly in the OSD
