Question about Dell W1700 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Dell W1700 LCD no picture, already replaced board

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 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 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!!!

    Here is a picture of the problem-

    Basically it is blowing out and distorting highlights. I've already tried messing with picture settings and can make it look a bit better but not fixed.
    What is wrong with it?

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.
Good Luck.

Dell W1700 new inverter board, same problem!

you may have gotten a bad board. this board is the most common failure to the back lights lighting. the cffl's can not be replaced they are a part of the panel, you would have to completely dismantal the panel to get to them. if you feel that the board is good the next step is the main board. the feed back to the main board is not being excepted the processor, replace the main board.
