Dell 32 LCD Flat Screen multiple problems

I hate this TV.  IT has been problematic since day one and Dell is exceedingly unhelpful.  I have problems with the picture and the sound.  Often when I powerup the TV I get a blank screen and no sound.  Occasionally I get sound and no picture.  The (un)help desk at Dell told me to hold the power button in the off position for thirty seconds to "discharge the static electricity".  This works sometimes but not always.  Also, some channels go to Black and White rather than color when I change channels.  Lately, I have been having a lot of sound "drop outs".  This is particularly true on commercials (I should complain LOL).  Recently the picture has been freezing and pixilating in squares or the picture and sound are not synchronized.   It has gotten so that I rarely watch TV because it is so frustrating.  Oh, when I play a DVD I do not experience these problems, so I guess the problem is with the tuner.

I have checked all the connections and replaced all the cables with the highest quality I could buy.  I think the problem is in the TV tuner itself.  I live in a MDU so I am stuck with a rooftop satellite/master antenna.

Re: Dell 32 LCD Flat Screen multiple problems

You've answered yourself. problem seems to be related with the cable/satelite tuner or connections. DVD plays perfectly so I would check the TV connections/cables or move over to a different cable/point.

-TV does not power on. -TV has been plugged into multiple outlets with no success. Was working just hours before. Now no lights power on, nor does the screen.

It sounds like you have a bad power supply module part number BN96-03057A for a model LNS3241D. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks..

TV worked fine one night, next day screen is white.

The LCD Panel failed. There is no easy fix but try to get the T-Con board to fix the issue. However, this part is usually only available with the whole LCD Panel. This is usually the most expensive part in the TV and the whole TV needs to be taken apart to replace the panel.

Might be economically viable if you can find a place that carrys the T-con but Dynex parts are usually hard to find. The LCD Panel part alone will exceed the cost of the TV.

Dell 32 inch LCD Tv volume and menue problems

We also have a 32" LCD Dell flat screen tv #W3201C that has no sound. It's about 2/12 yrs old. One speaker started having a problem and we disconnected it. That was a couple weeks ago, now there is no sound at all. Dell should not be let off the hook so easily. Obviously there is a problem with the tv and it should be Dell's responsibility to make it right. Does anyone know if a class action suit has been initiated?

Samsung HD 32" lcd tv

Sadly there is no repair for the damaged screen and trying to replace it may be as much as buying a new one this is because the screen is one of the main components but I recommend you check with your local TV repair man some one should give you a good price keep in mind that this repair should not exceed 65% of the current value of the TV, that is already to much.
