Just out of warranty Dell TV W3706MC,two years old

Sounds like a bad video board. No easy way to fix a bad video board. It needs to be replaced. That is why the repair shops will not fix it; they do not stock video boards for all models. And it is a pain to track one down all of a sudden. Once a warranty is up, you are running on bonus time. Electrical components have a definite lifespan. It is possible to recover some money by selling it "as-is" online somewhere. You could get 200-400 for it broken, pretty easy I suppose.

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 40 no picture

If it is only 6 months old you probably still have a warranty. This is definitely a hardware issue, and unless you are comfortable taking your new TV apart, I would contact Samsung for repair.

Sound quit working

I have the same problem with the same TV (16 months). So far the only option ive came across is just hooking up a surround system to the cable box for the audio.
