Dell lcd tv power shuts off several times

I have a 2306C dell lcd tv, it has been turning itself off several times while i was watching it. I was told that it was a transistor, that makes the unit think it is hot and shuts it off. I was also told that it was not in the power supply. If anyone knows which transistor is causing the tv to turn off, i could repair it myself. I need location number so that i can find the part that is bad and the part number. any help will be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Mr. Lorenzo

    I too have the Dell W2306C LCD TV and it randomly shuts off while I am watching it. Is this a known problem with DELL?

Dell extended the warranty on these crappy LCDs - i had mine replaced a few months ago after it sat useless in the corner for a year. call them up, tell them what you have and they should replace it pretty easily/quickly.

If it is under warranty send it back if not, open it up you can usually smell a bad component inside a TV or monitor. also look at the ends of the component if they are dark in color you can probably bet that this is a good place to start.

you can also get a LED and a battery and hand test each part (if it blinks) you may question, you can also use a volt meter.

Dell buys there parts from china and some of the Capacitors and Rectifiers are cheap.

you can order these parts off the net for mer pennys or pull them from other electronics always research the numbers on the actual parts.

My 37 inch Sylvania TV model LC37SS9 M turned off by itself and to turn back on. I was watching dish network at the time


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

When i turn on the tv , it shuts itself off in 2


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

It is very common that the power supply, and or the backplane lamps and lamp ballast supplies fail in LCD sets.

Dell LCD TV powers on and after a few minutes shuts off by itself


Ok, this is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see something moving, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see. I would say that there are some problems with the inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
