Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Help please! Have great sound, chanels work, but blank screen. Can not get menu or imput to show,the Dell logo does even show when first turn on tv.
Thank you firstname.lastname@example.org
Turn the tv with the rear cover facing you. power on the tv, look into the grills on the rear cover. If you happen to see 3 green lights together on the mainboard, you have communication signal. Otherwise, its the mainboard. If u get all 3, then its your Y main board and probably a lower or upper buffer, depending on where burn is located on panel board.

The problem is a $1.09 part. You will need a soldering gun, multimeter, etc.. Or someone else who is electronically inclined.
The fix for it is here:
I have the 46" Dell model with the same problem, Dell Logo all pixilated and fading out to black screen, and this fixed it. Part cost $1.09 plus shipping.
I can't take credit for this persons post so post thanks on the fix.
Just note, TV's can hold electricity even after being unplugged. So if you try this keep that in mind. You shouldn't mess with it until an hour or so after you unplug it and even then there could be electricity in the large capacitors that can harm or kill you. Google "discharging capacitors" to discharge the electricity from the power board. Attempt at your own risk.
