Dell w3000 has green power on no video just audio only


Firstly i would suggest you to perform Self-Test Feature Check (STFC)
Your LCD TV when used as a computer display through DVI and/or VGA connection provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your LCD TV is functioning properly. If your LCD TV and computer are properly connected but the LCD TV screen remains dark, run the LCD TV self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and the LCD TV.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove both Digital(white connector) and the Analog(blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the LCD TV.
  4. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the LCD TV cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually

This box also appears during normal system operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
Turn off your LCD TV and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the LCD TV.If your LCD TV screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your LCD TV is functioning properly.

OSD Warning Messages

A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the LCD TV is out of sync range.
See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this LCD TV. Recommended mode is 1280x 768 @ 60Hz.

The unit won't come on. I pushed the reset button but still nothing. The green light on the plug its self comes on but nothing on the air conditioner comes on.


There might be something wrong with the wiring connection. Check for open wire, burn-out wire or worn-out terminal lug from your control box. Unplug the unit and unscrew the control box to find the problem.If you found nothing abnormal plug it in and test with volt meter if power is coming at the end of the wires (connected to the plug). If no power at the end of the wires, it is broken near the plug. Cut the wire and reconnect it back to a new plug.

Computer powers up, but monitor shows a self test


Your video output is bad. Either the video card, or the onboard video built into the computer. You need to swap out the card or add a card to bypass the built in video port on your computer.

Screen suddenly went blank except for a self test box


well in order to get rid of the self test window from your monitor... check the cable that connects your monitor to system tower & reset the connection... becase that is the only possible cause of the self test showing up on your monitor...

" as the self test option only appears when there is no video signal going from your video card to the monitor...

Monitor keeps saying self test everything working check plugs


The self test thinks nothing is connected to it
it might be the cable or the input circuit.
not an easy issue to verify if you only have one input.
most often its is the internal board with a failed input circuit.
you can only open the unit and test the vga cable continuity.
as most have a 1 year warranty you might want to check on yours.
