1 Answer

ARPI your the guru please HELP ME I just need to fix this TV

Hi there I got your email from what you posted regarding the Dell W2600 on Fixya. I have the same issue that you had with your set not powering up. Unfortunately I gave up on Dell after hours and hours of wasted conversation with some one from India who is more interested in getting the TAG NUMBER or TAG ID I am getting nowhere with them. Please help me figure out how to fix the TV. Dell wont do anything because the person who I bought this TV from on eBay had removed the Tag number and Id from it the only thing it has is the serial number and Dell told me that they cant do anything for me. I am very frustrated since the unit is collecting dust on my desk for the past 2 months since Oct 2008. I tried everything with no luck especially without the tag numbers that dell wants. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME. I see that you got the same problem can you tell me maybe how and what you did to get yours fixed. I just want the TV to power up Please I beg you help me with this, the more I look at this TV the more mad I get cuz its sitting collecting dust please reply back to my email. And really Thanks in advance for any help or information regarding this :) I just want my TV to work again. Please email me back milesserver@gmail.com

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.

These instructions were posted on the Dell Community forum http://en.community.dell.com/forums/

My dell 2600 will not turn on.


betaspace, Stop fooling around with the remote! The W2600 is broke. You will not fix it. Here are the options you as a consumer/user have. 1. Dell warranty? Check with Dell and claim premature failure of the set. Maybe they'll tell you to take a hike. Who knows? 2. See if they have a swapout program. You send them your's + some cash and they ship you a refurbished same model in return. 3 Contract a local TV/LCD monitor service center that knows forwards and backwards all about SMPS's/CCF lighting and their inverter power source. That's about all I can tell you to do. If you ever need to ship any kind of plasma or lcd display follow this rule! NOTHING but a layer of pure AIR 4" thick should ever be allowed to contact the viewing screen. Only AIR! No feather pillows! No styrofoam popcorn shipping material! No crumpled-up newspapers! Nothing but AIR! I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aim.com

There is no fix for the W2600. It has a power supply problem.
For sometime Dell was replacing the tv's with new ones, but don't think they are anymore. If you go to the Dell Forum and type in your tv you will see the amount of people that have had the same problem. Unbelieveable. As a matter of fact, Dell is not even making TV's anymore. Guess they gave up. They cannot be fix, cannot get the parts for it.

Service codes


It is not service codes that you need. The set is not matched to the broadcast standard where you are located.


Many of the flat panel TV models work with a PC interface for the factory setup. If any parameters have changed with the age of the set, the fault is failing components, and not adjustments to be done. Over-compensating for a fault is not a fix.

As for your TV set, if I recall correctly, the factory service setup is done through an interface to a PC with the service software. The interface on some sets works with the HDMI cable, a USB type connector, or a serial connector, or the back cover has to be removed and there is an interface connector on the processor board.

Dell W2600 TV


I have had the Dell W2600 for about 4 years. My remote for the Dell stopped working after 16 months. Since I was using cable I used the cable box remote. However, about 6 months ago a dark shadow appeared on some parts of the screen but the tv was still viewable. Shortly after, my power light would suddenly go out and then come back on after a minute or so. The problem got progressively worse until tonight it was off for most of the show I was watching and would come back on briefly. I popped the rear cover off and removed the metal shield and found most of the wires on one of the wire harness coming from the power supply board burned so badly the insulation was gone and the plastic connector assembly on the board melted. Because of the nature of modular board construction the power supply board and wire harness would need to be replaced and that doesn't necessarily mean the cause was fixed! To me this is a safety hazard. The TV is definitely out of warranty but I wouldn't expect this type of hazard problem. FYI, the parts I can read are made in China....what's new!
