Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I think the remote is good but the t.v. not getting signal.on the front of the t.v. there is a blue power on light next to the buttons is there suppose to be another blue light in front of the t.v. facing out above the blue light facing down?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, let's try the simple one. Check if any of the buttons on the front control panel are stuck. You could also flick/snap them with your finger nail.
Should that be not corrective, then the unit wold have to be opened up, perform voltage measurements,determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

You can test remote control by seeing it through camera / camcorder.
see remote face through camera and press / hold any button on remote, you will notice Infra Red diode blinks at front of remote. without camera you can not see IR diode blinks.
Now, if you see IR diode blinks it means remote is functional. Now change batteries and try it on TV, still no joy, TV remote sensor is bad and needs to be replace.
TV remote sensor replacement is technical job and qualified TV tech can do it better.
