Question about Dell W2300 23 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Picture Problem!!!! I have a Dell W2300 tv and the picture will not come on. I can hear sound but no picture. My problem started with the picture flickering and would go out but return. I turn it off every night or when not in use. One morning it wouldn't turn on. Any suggestions.

    I don't have a picture at all. There is only sound. I will take a look at it again tonight. I was wondering if flat transformers may be buldging. I know we have so Dell pc's at work that have this problem also.

    Hi....I have the exact same Dell TV (w2306c) and the same scenario just happened to me this weekend. Sound, everything turns on and works, but no picture. It first started with a the picture going to snow like lines, then nothing at this a back light inverter problem? Any idea where I can get one? And, can I, the consumer, fix it myself or do I need my own Geek Squad? : ) Thank you!!!!

Sounds like the backlight isn't working.

Can you see a very faint picture? It might be so faint that you can only see it in certain lighting conditions.

Backlight problems are usualy caused by a faulty inverter board. I think you'll need to contact Dell as they can be funny about supplying spare parts.

If you can get a picture of the inverter board and post it, I might be able to locate a pattern board for you. The Inverter board has several flat transformers on it.

Be carefull, that board has some high voltages on it. Dont plug the set in while you have the back off.

Hope this helps

    The tranformers wont show any signs of trouble, I just mentioned those to indicate which board you need to be looking at.

52" plasma tv - turns on - and I hear something reset inside

i hear a clicking noise- the clicking noise is most likely you ballast trying to power the lamp, but failing. this may indicate a defective ballast if you have recenty purchased a new lamp.I recomend you have your lamp tested to help narrow down the cause of the defect. It's highly unlikely for a new lamp to be dead on arrival

DELL 4201 C plasma

I'm having the exact same problem with the same model. I spoke with a electronics person and was told the problem is the "Lamp". Dell no longer carry parts for this model. I'm searching around for anyone who sells replacement parts for this model. If i'm successful I'll be sure to post it.

Dell W2300 LCD TV Picture Problem

Your problem is due to intermittent power in the backlighting circuit. This is usually caused by swelling of electrolytic capacitors in the power board. If you can find an honest electronics technician it is about a $40.00 fix.
