    not quite the same problem but the remote control of my the Dell 2600 TV stopped functioning. I can't get a replacement and Dell website does not appear to have this part in its accessories section. Your help is appreciated. none of the replacement "universal" remote controls worked so far and do not list Dell's code in their manual.

    The set will turn on after it has been disconnected for 5 or more minutes. It will stay on, but if you shut it off and try to turn right back on, it will not work. I have removed and tested every elctrolytic capacitor on the PS board. None were found bad.

    Hello,



    My Dell W2600 stopped working yesterday. No light at ON/OFF switch and no respond on screen. I believe the power unit causes the problem. No warranty left and dell refuse to help me. They say I should go to any repair shop to have it fixed. I do not think that is a proper way of acting. I spent USD 2000 on this unit and it less only for 3 years.



    Do any have a idée what the problem is and how to get it fixed?!

    Regards / Klas

    Less than 2 yrs old. Stopped working and now no power, no blue light... I can just hear a relay click when pushing power button and then nothing... Dell refuses to help: they offer a replacement (refurnished set) for 1.5 times the original price :-( I opened the back and found one fuse (OK) on the 230 V inlet. Any help or tip welcome. Milo.

    This is ridiculous. I am having the same issues. I'm glad Dell has my money and I have their oversized paper weight.

  • travbeav Oct 27, 2008

    Count me in to this mess too. I bought my W2600 in November 2004. The remote control died about a year later, and Dell replaced that. After my warranty expired, that remote also failed, and I ended up buying one off of eBay. Now, this power problem. I called Dell, and got a case # from somebody in India, and they referred me to a phone number telling me that since I was beyond 3 years since purchase that the TV would need to be repaired and not replaced. The guy told me someone would come to my house and fix it. I called the number and it was for out of warranty support. They todl me no one comes to your house, and that I would be responsible for full shipping to and from, as well as shipping of a container to me to pack it in, even though I have the original box. Then it get's fun - the repair is not covered by Dell. This place wanted $261.85 in labor, parts are extra!! Can anyone say class action suit??

    Today Oct 29 2008 my Dell W2600 did not power up and no pic. Now dell is asking for service tag which my tv does not have one. I see that they recalled them and people were getting replacements from dell. My problem is that my 26tv only has the P/N number and the serial number and the model. No tag or service ID. I just hung up the phone with dell cause I am a little bit frustrated, the tv was just purchased 8 months ago from ebay and now this. Can ANYONE help me plz with this. Can Dell bypass that stupid tag number and just go with my PN number or serial cause I searched and there is no tags. PLEASE HELP me thanks.

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!

Hi there if found three solutions:

first, source: http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=140518

Hi I have just had a look at one of these with the same fault when you put the power on you can hear a relay click and then nothing.
I took out the power supply and had a look at the back with a strong magnifier and found six dry joints I have redone them and the telly works fine hope this is of some help.

second, source: thread:
http://www.dellcommunity.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=dce_W1700LCD&thread.id=12588&view=by_date_ascending&page=1

I have confirmed in the lab that it is i232 and it's bonding to the board as orignaly suspect.
In order to repair these units, the chip must be removed and reinstalled.

Third, same thread:

Leaving the set in this state (power has been pressed but TV is not working)...If you press the microswitch SW201, the set powers up!!! This is without any freeze spray! (you can use freeze spray on i232 )

I'm going to try to super-glue the 5 chips on the board and add a fan to cool them.

If I find this working I'll post it.

Dell is now doing Out-of warranty repairs --- i got this email:


This Email is to inform you of a potential issue on your Dell LCD TV. This is NOT a safety related issue.

We have determined that your W2600 Dell LCD TV is included in a limited number of Dell TVs that may exhibit a no power issue. The no power symptoms are no video, no sound, and the power indicator is off. The no power issue does not affect general television use once the TV is switched on.

Dell will provide an exchange with no charge, even if your TV is out of warranty, if your TV exhibits the no power symptom within three years of the original purchase date. The exchange will be a refurbished TV.

Please note, the out of warranty exchange with no charge will only be provided for TVs with the no power symptom.

You may call the normal Dell support phone number at 1-800-624-9896 if service is needed. Please have your express service code available when you call. The express service code is printed on the Service Tag Label on the back of your TV.

Our Direct Model allows us to provide you, one of our valued customers, with greater information to enhance your experience with Dell systems. This has enabled us to report this issue to you. Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal.

Thank you for purchasing a Dell TV.

The problem with the Dell w2600 not powering up is in the controle board. There is a factory chip robotically installed by computer that does not trip the relay back to the power board to start the tv. It is to complicated for repair without the proper robotic equiptment.

Posted on Jun 26, 2008

I bought a refurbished Dell W2600 on Ebay. It worked fine for about 2 months then stopped powering on. That was about 6 months ago. Dell refunded my money after months of harassing them even though I was not the original owner referenced from the service tag. I have bought a lot of Dell equipment for my small business, so they were willing to work with me to make me happy. The didn't even want the old one back, so it has sat here collecting dust ever since. Well after 6 months with this screen sitting worthless on my desk, I decided to give it another try. I hit the power button, nothing, then I smacked the thing upside the head, and VIOLA! It powered on. I doubt it will work for long, but I will use it while it lasts.

Hi have a nice day!
It is probably a power supply problem. Remove cover and check for a line fuse blown or any burnt component mainly at power supply area.

When i push the power on button it won"t turn on . the blue power light flashes yellow three times


Google Dell W2600 blink codes. You're tv is doing a self diagnostic and letting you know what's wrong with by flashing the yellow light. Count how many time and if there is a sequence to it, then look it up.

My dell w2600 tv turns on but then immeadatley turns off on its own. then it wont work at all after that until i unplug it, then the same happens when i try to turn it on again.


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

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.
