Dell W2606C intermittent power issues

I just brought this Dell TV. the people said that sometimes you turn the power on the TV and maybe it turns on and maybe it does not. sometimes the tv turns on and then you can watch tv, and then the tv will power off. I have the back off and I do not see anything obvious like capicators blown, and I do not see any standard fuses. I would like to know if there is a power board that may be able to be purchased to relace the power board on this tv?

Yes there is, however you should check the voltages on ur power board. look at the top right for sticker with va, vset, ve, etc.. each one has a voltage next to it in VDC. ground the neg lead, and test each lead with the red tip. if mismatches in 2 or more settings, it is the power board. otherwise, its the main board. remove the board, and ebay the board id stamp for a replacement. should resolve concerns.

I have a dell lcd tv/monitor that just stopped powering on. it flashes an orange light where the power button is.

Power supply module will be the first place to look at, from what you describe, at least the 5v standby power supply is still working, It can be the power supply module is bad or it is not getting the control signal from the main board to turn on the main power supply on.

Dell will replace it if it's less than 3 yrs old but apparently their tech support people are clueless about this and have to be told what they need to look up. The replacement is a nice gesture except if you're like me and paid >$1,000 for this more than 3 yrs ago. I have had TV's > 20 yrs and don't reacall major problems with any.
