The tv only has a NTSC (analog) tuner built in. So if you don't subscribe to a cable or satelite company and you get your broadcast from an antenna at your house, you will need a converter box.

HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Dell will still offer it, or you can buy the convertor (with a $40 coupon) that many sets need.



You can order (backorder from what I read) the coupons here:


Convertor Coupons


After surveying many of the set-top convertors, I bought Zinwell ZAT-970 units for two older sets not currently in use but will now serve as backups when our sexy flat panels die like so many.

My dell w3000 tv wont power on


There are likely bad capacitors on the power board. You will need to replace 4 capacitors, labeled c101, c304, c305 and c404. I used 3 50v 33uf and 1 50v 47uf capacitors. The originals are 35v 33uf and 35v 47uf. Replacing these should fix most power board issues.

W3000, power and audio but not picture


Yes I tried it and now I have nothing, not even a green light. So much for that. I have 2 of these sets. If you never unplug them from 110 I never have a problem. Un plug them and wait 2-3 days and nothing.
Any lawyers what to take this on?

Dell w3000 & PS3


This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.

Try turning the master power on and off a few times. Give it a few secs inbetween power offs and that should work. It's worked for me. Sometimes it takes longer that other times to show a picture.
