Re: Dell W1700 LCD TV static audio and b/w picture
Check the cable between the monitor and the box for damage.
Try a new cable.
It may be a problem with the input board but it sounds like a cable problem.

Hi ti, My name is John. Welcome to FixYa. Usually when this happens, you have to go into the menu and do another channel search (auto search) or scan, but make sure you have all your cable, wires hooked up properly. While in the menu, make sure you have selected the country that you are in. Thanks for choosing FixYa......John
These are the answers straight from the dell manual.
Ensure that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the audio input connectors on your LCD TV and audio output connectors on your PC or Video player.
If on certain TV channels you receive a picture but no sound, this means that you do not have the correct TV system. Modify the SYSTEM setting.
Check if TV volume is turn off of muted
Connect the audio cable securely
Audio cable is connected incorrectly
Verify that the audio source is selected correctly in the OSD

You can access the main menu by pushing the MENU button. From there you should have access to brightness and contrast controls, color settings, and image settings, among others. You should be able to adjust the settings so that white looks white, and black looks black. If you can't get it where it needs to be from these controls, it may indicate a problem. Call support if that is the case.
