Question about Dell W3000 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have this tv, and have had the EXACT problem. my solution was simple.
if you take the back cover off of the monitor, there are 2 boards on the outside edges of the left and right of the monitor. these boards are covered by metal shields. remove the 3 screws on each board shield and slide them off.(careful this can be tricky) on the boards are 2 capacitors that need to be replaced. 4 total, 2 on each board. the capacitors are 150uf at 35 Volts. go to your local electronics repair shop to get the parts and tools needed to do this repair.
make sure to get the polarity of these caps right. stripe side on cap goes to the minus.

This is the way all of these fail. Don't buy Dell TV's.

Turn on TV with remote control, if the TV does not light-up, find the Main Power Switch. Turn the switch off, then turn it on, the TV lights-up. Probably caused by poor contacts due to age and low quality parts.
