Question about Dell W3201C 32 in. LCD Television
One speaker had crackling sound then quit all together, the other has pulsing sound, tv is 2 years old
I have the exact TV with the same concern. I disassembled my set and removed the sound module to verify part numbers. The cheapest one I could find was on eBoob for over $100.00. My solution was to buy an inexpensive sound bar at Radio Shack and install it. Very simple to connect and it sounds fine. I wouldn't suggest putting money into a low quality TV like the Dell, another board may blow out at any time per several techs I talked to.

I tried this and went from no sound to a popping noise that does not adjust with the volume switch. It is either on or off.
Is there anywhere we can a replacement for this???

I too am having the same problem. TV is only 2 years old and the sound is shot. Attempts to contcat Dell have involved speaking with 2 reps with acents so heavy i just gave up. I have also sent 2 emails, neither of which have been replied to.
Dont think we should just shrug this off, I know I will be paying on this faulty model for another 2 years. Class action suit anyone?

When unit was made they put a layer of glue on both sides of the audio board .The glue turns dark and hard after a couple of years and becomes conductive and corrosive. I tried to take it off but ruined a couple of parts on the board while doing so.I would suggest to anyone who wants to attempt it to first coat the area with acetone or nail polish remover to soften the glue and then use dental picks to remove (carefully)the glue. Then the board should be washed with a good electronic solvent and dried. It might be worth a try!
