Question about Dell W2600 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Will not turn on, but I do hear a click like it wants to

So I was given a free dell w2600 lcd tv today that does not work. I figured I would mess around with it before it goes to the dump to see if I could fix it, would make a nice computer monitor maybe. I was told it overheated or something possibly but after 3 or so hrs of it being off it would work again. I plugged it in at home and it would not turn on. I took the back all off to see what was going on. If I press the power botton on, I hear a click sound like the tv is turning on, but no picture or anything or any idicator light(dont know if it has one). Then, if I hold the power botton for several seconds I hear the click like it might be turning off(only makes the click if I hold the botton). I touched one of the transformers just to see if I would get a shock and I did. I looked over all the capacitors to see if they looked bad and none appear to be blown visisbly, testing may yeild different. I now touch one of the transforumers and I get no shock at all. Does this give anyone any clues???? Maybe it should just go to the dump, but this is all for fun.

The power supply is probably shot. An expensive repair...mostly labor.

My Dell W2600 well not turn on have to unplug you can hear it click then plug back in and some time it will turn on

This sounds like Electrolytic Capacitors that are needing replacing, Common fault with LCD, If you know how to use electronic tools you can open the TV and you will see the tops of the capacitors are bulged and they need replacing.

For a used part, or a complete used set like yours, try eBay. One thing to consider, is if someone is selling a used set there is a chance that its faults, or potential faults may be the same as the one that you have.
