Bad transformer on Inverter Board

Hi, I have a DELL 32" LCD TV, when I turn it on the DELL logo comes up for a second then goes black. I opened the TV up, and found that it is a Samsung panel model: LTA320W2-L03 (Same as in Samsung TV model LN-S3251D) and also notice that there is a burnt transformer on the inverter board, the board# is "KLS-320VE-J REV:01. My question is..
Is there anywhere I can get just that transformer? how do repair shops fix it, they must be able to get these parts right? I don't think they will wind a new Transformer ;-) anyways, I have not pulled the trasnformer out yet, there is a number on the top of them (there are 16 of them) it only says K320VE 05CL,

Thanks in Advance for any help

    I was afraid of that... so do LCD TV repair shops only replace boards? they can't do component level repairs like the old days? or do they have special channels where they can get these parts? I did find on-line that these transformers are available in CHINA in lots of 1000 per order ;-(, the shipping alone is probably more than the TV ;-)



    I did find a place on-line that sells a refurbished inverter board for $180 so I guess is not that bad. assuming that the transformer did blow and something else is not blowing it....

    darn if I could only get that $3 part



    Anyways thanks for your help!

For me I think I'm gonna try Decision One a certified Dell fixer upper. I looked at my inverter and there were no burns that I could see. My problem is different from Headstrongs come to find out. Dell w3201c is the model number, it has samsung on parts under the hood....
good luck

    well i guess God decided to shine down on me today. I contacted Decision One and after getting my request lost and unasnswered for several weeks I finally spoke with someone that quoted me a price of $450.00 shipping, $295.00 evaluation fee and then parts would be on top of that, so for $800.00 plus dollars I might get it fixed. Nope, momma hit the roof, so I ordered a 50 in. plasma and moved on. Being the tinkerer I am I opened up the tv and visually inspected as much as I could, I did not see anything blackened or shorted. When I opened the screen housing I managed to pull the contact for the lcd converter off of its circuit board and figured all was lost. I googled the part number and shopjimmy.com (a website for salvage parts) showed the part for $79.95+ shipping, I ordered, got it, installed it and was back to square one. I contemplated calling Decision One again (unbeknownst to the mrs.) but couldn't get over the price. So last week I googled the the tv model number and found 4dcomputerparts.com auctioning the power supply and other internal parts. I ordered the power supply, $75.99 and the next piece in the line which was the dc-dc converter $49.99. I installed the power supply and walla !! the tv works just like it should.....for now. I hope they take the dc converter back and if not I am still a far cry from $800.00. And I got the panasonic plasma I wanted before all this started.

    good luck folks and don't give up so easily!!

    ok my bad got to excited too soon

    well i migrated to another issue from having no sound and video with just the power button illuminated. I replaced the power supply with one from an online salvage store and it worked fine for about two hours and then it shut off, turned it back on and then twenty minutes later off again...repeat... need an electronics person to trouble shoot and trace which resistors and or capacitors are overloading.
    anyone??

Either I would be interested in the panel or maybe you can be interested in the inverter. I have the Samsung LN-S3251D with a cracked LCD. The TV still cuts on and I can hear sounds, but obviously the only thing coming up on the screen is the spider web from the crack.

Let me know.

Hi.

This is very common with all makes of lcd tv unfortunately the transformers are near impossible to get hold of on there own.
Your best chance is either look on Ebay to see if anyone has A scrap complete tv same model for sale.
Or look for invereter board for sale.
Just to give you some idea of what you are looking for this is a link to A site in the UK that sells inverters.

The most common problem is the Power/Backlight Inverter Board. There are 6 mini transformers on the board, one goes bad and the TV will turn itself OFF automatically for " Protection Mode". Replace the whole board or replace the bad mini transformer.

Whole board, BA71F0F01042
Mini Transformer, LTZ2PC0MS008

It being emerson 32" hdtv lcd turns on but immediately turns off


This is Emerson's #1 problem.
The Inverter Transformer on the power supply/backlight inverter board goes bad. It's what powers up the screen for your TV. When the part goes bad, it doesn't have enough juice to power the screen and the TV automatically turns off. You have 5 Inverter Transformer on your board.
You can fix the problem by replacing the whole board or replace the bad Inverter Transformer.
Here's where you can get a new board for a good price:

Or, here's where you can get replacement Inverter Transformers:

My picture goes blank


One of two things, the backlight inverter board is going bad (usually has open winding on the transformers), second, the 24vdc power supply section of the main power supply module is bad due to bad filter capacitors.

32in dell turns off??????


probably It is a bad inverter board or power supply, in my case one of the 16 transformers is burnt out on the inverter board. still trying to find a replacement component. if not replacing the board is the only option or getting the inverter board repaired.

by the way, this TV has a Samsung panel: model LTA320W2-L03. so it needs parts for a Samsong not a DELL.
DELL does not manufacture or fix them becuase they don't make them
