Re: Dell W1700 17 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television

I have the same TV - Same problem. My TV was replaced twice by Dell while it was under warranty. When I contacted the out-of- warranty contractor for Dell, Jabil, I was advised by a tech that Jabil no longer repairs this tv and added this is a common problem w/this TV. He further advised that 98% of the time, it was the result of fuzes f1 and f2 on the inverter board "blowing". If you can't find a local shop to replace these fuzes, plan B would be to send it to a repair center in Ohio, name unrecalled, 800 941-4478. Personally, as this seems to be a recurring problem w/this tv, I'm going to cut my losses and get a name brand

Black screen - audio works - hp logo on start - then goes black

It is either the power supply or the backlight inverter board finally failed. You will need to do some voltages checking inside, also see if you can see any bad caps in the power supply.
