Question about Dell W2607C Television

Amber Light blinking on power switch

When I attempted to manually power on my Dell TV, I noticed the power button was flashing in a sequence of 3 flashes at a time in an amber color. I have never seen this color before there. I did some research and found that if the light was a solid amber color, the TV was in safe mode. This is not the case with my TV, hence the flashing amber light. We have unplugged the tv and disconnected every connection to the TV, and plugged it back in, only to have the power button flash amber and will not allow me to turn TV on. Any ideas?

    exact same problem. if I could find a wiring diagram I would check an internal fuse or something. Dell had a problem with the W2606C that they are replacing now with this model W2607C. But it seems to have the same problem. I like the LAW SUIT idea. This is crazy.

27 mgz oscillator on the back of the main board. Try resoldering it, or replace it.

    Bad Main Board. Check the 3A surface mount fuse, R1U01. If it is bad, replace QU01, QU03 &UU00. Their part numbers are Si4944 (two of them) & NCP5422 (on the back side). You can get these at DigiKey for about $10. Of course change the fuse, too. You should also change out the three 22uf caps by the Si4944's.

    Hi, I searched on but there is a lot of 3A fuses, 200W to 600W, different voltages... which is the good one? Same thing about the 27mhz oscillator, I don't find the good one... Thanks.

SOURCE: When I attempted to manually

Usually this indicates major hardware failure inside the TV. The most common issues are a failed power board, failed convergence board, or a failed backlight. Any of of these issues is unfortunately very expensive to repair. I would check if the unit is still under warranty first, and of course claim it on that if it is. If it is not, if you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

Why won't it turn on?

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details of many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes

the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

Model W2607C. Does not power up.

Check the 27 mhz oscillator on the back of the main board. Resolder of replace it. It causes lots of different blinking amber lights.
