Question about Dell W3000 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

4 Answers

Set on no picture

We push the on button...the light is green...but set does not go on. We used to press the button several times and it went on but it no longer goes on.

Local repair people don't want to deal with Dell TV sets apparently.

1. Try this - hold the menu button down for 10 seconds. TV should power up; you will have to turn off front panel buttons on menu.

2. Try a hard reset: Unplug the Tv from the AC mains, wait about 10 minutes and replug and power on the Tv and see.

3. Powering down the set or putting it in standby may have allowed the power supply to cool. Weak capacitors often go out of spec when they cool, thus preventing a section of the power supply from firing up properly again. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use the hairdryer, but don't hold the dryer too close (say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Resetting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

4. A circuit board may crack about some of the larger components mounted on it. You can inspect the PCB's for fractures, and then repair them. It may also be poor soldering that has failed. I would be checking for these things first.

5. The problem could be with the power board. Unfortunately, the board is manufactured by a Chinese company, and they do not sell parts. They only replace entire sets if returned under warranty from Dell..

    Try this: Shine a bright light at the screen. If you can see the ghost of an image if you shine a bright light at the panel, then probably the backlight is gone. There may be generic replacements for those,
    they're only a little different from household fluorescent bulbs. Call
    around to TV repair stores that advertise 'all brands'. The lamp power
    supply is also highly subject to failure. A very sharp repair shop can
    fix those with generic parts too, depending on exactly what failed. But
    if it's a proprietary part like a transformer, that was designed
    specifically for that model, I don't think there is any choice apart from getting a new TV...

Have you tried using the remote at all. If the remote works, then the button on the tv is at fault and needs replacing otherwise you could be having bigger problems. Please update me on this problem after reading my comment. thanks

How old is your unit? Is it still under warranty?

If you provide the Dell Service Tag #, I can look up it's warranty and support status.

When I push the on button the green light comes on for second or two then goes out.(will not stay turned on long enough to even get a picture on the screen.Mitsibishi Model # WS-55315


This set has a self check feature--if set has been unplugged it clears the error buffer--plug in and try to turn on set.

When green light comes on and then goes off ON THE FRONT OF THE SET press and hold BOTH the menu and input(device) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat the code for a total of five times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will explain it.

The TV shut off by itself. Just before it went off, it said "timer off 0:00 press 09". Now when I push the power button the power light blinks and there is no picture.


sounds like somebody set the timer. normally this only makes the set enter standby mode and pressing the power button or a channel button usually wakes the set normally.
Just a longshot but have you tried pressing 09 while the light is blinking?

Setting date onCanon P23 DHV


I'm not positive because I pushed several buttons just trying to get it set and stay set -- but I think I did the following: fist push the "time set" button, ie the "memory plus" button then push the "format" button, ie the red "minus" button to change the settings -- continue until you have set the date and time -- then when you are finished you have to push the "time set" button, ie the "memory plus" button again to set it in place -- at least I think that's what I did

Camera Frozen


Hi,

I tried Option No.1 successfully when my Panasonic DMC-FZ7K froze once:

Option No1:


1. Try turning the camera on with the battery inserted.

2. Now remove the battery while the camera is on.

3. Flip the switch on the camera to off, then insert a fully charged battery. (Make sure that the battery's orientation is correct. Also make sure that the battery being used is not damaged).

4. Now flip the camera's switch to ON again.
------------------------------------------------------------
Option No. 2:


If you can open the Setup menu then the camera can be reset which might help:

Turn on the camera.

1. Press MENU SET.

2. Press the left arrow button.

3. Press the down arrow button.

4. Press the right arrow button.

5. Now, press the up arrow button several times until the menu item named RESET is highlighted. Push the right arrow button and then select and set YES when the camera asks to be reset.
