Question about Dell W1700 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
A friend of mine had one of these and brought it to me when the picture stopped coming up. I found the replacement board with LCDParts.com and ordered, installed it, and everything worked fine till last week, about 4 months. Just for kicks and giggles, I removed the board to do a quick look and noticed char in the left wide 3-pin plug and on the plug itself, which snakes down into the screen. Pics:
Do you think this could have been a faulty board? The screen comes up for about 1 sec, then nothing. If so, I want to contact LCDParts.com and see what they say about replacing the board, its not even 6 months old, and what about the cable to the LCD? Can that be replaced, or maybe it will be fine? Im curious because he gave it to me, and I know its a nice monitor/TV [when it works] and if it can be fixed quick/cheap, Id like to do so. Thanks in advance!!!
I would suggest to remove the connector from the board and the wire harness and solder the wires directly to the board. In many cases the high current that runs through that connector makes the connections overheat due to the poor contacts at this location. A solid solder connection will last longer.
