    I thought the problem was my universal remote but I now realize it is the TV! Thanks for the posting. the problem is I can't get the service tag # as the TV is mounted to the wall and I bought it 3 years ago.

    Any ideas?

    Usually won't power up first time. Very random. Sometimes you must cycle between off/on 6 or more times and finally the screen lights up

Don't buy Dell TV's. I have been fighting this problem for years.
A royal pain. Now there is no red in the picture. All blue and beige.

My solution? New TV and ABSOLUTELY NO DELL!!!

Have any of you tried calling Dell about this problem? As of last year they were doing an express exchange of the TV's with new 32" units even if the warranty was expired. It's probably worth a call.

Lacking a warranty replacement unit, the problem is a symptom of a faulty power inverter which is reasonably easy to replace using a few simple tools. You can find parts suppliers on the web. One even has a limited set of directions. Good luck.

That happens occasionally with my W3000 also. I just pull the plug, count to ten and then it works for another few months.

Dell w3000 no green power light unit will not power on


This was a product malfunction with that TV. Dell ended up paying out $$ in a class action suit over this product...I think I got a check for like $30 in the end. There is no fix I was told...but try to toggle the master switch, or unplug and plug in again - that often times worked for me. In the end I bought a new tv though because the frustration level was too much.

Dell W3000 LCD TV has sound but no picture. In the past have had to turn on and off several times but this no longer works.


The problem of the picture not firing up right away on the Dell w3000 display is a manufacture defect in the LCD Inverter Boards. Could be master and could be slave that's failing. Most likely Master, but I suggest replacing both master and slave just to be sure. Stay away from pulled parts sold on ebay for this fix. You'll just be buying the same problem most likely. Try http://www.lcdparts.net/InverterDetail3D.aspx?ProductID=1921 I have ordered from them in the past they are reliable and handle RMA's quickly. This is a huge plus if you run into another problem trying to replace. They want 149.00 and the fix requires very little skill level to replace. Just have to decide if 149 bucks is worth it, or is it time to go for the 50 inch. hmnmm. Good Luck,

Hi there, i have a Dell tv model W3000 lately the tv does not turn on at all,i know power is there but the tv does not comes on. sometimes it comes on but it does not last....if i turn the tv off it does...


This is the way all of these fail. Don't buy Dell TV's.
Try this internet posted solution.
Turn on TV with remote control, if the TV does not light-up, find the Main Power Switch. Turn the switch off, then turn it on, the TV lights-up. Probably caused by poor contacts due to age and low quality parts.

if power light indicator and no video, its the inverter/ backlight. If no power at all, its the power board.

Here is my suggestion.. sell it to me.. or I can ship you a new power board, a typical problem with these units. I have several power boards in stock (new). They are $129 each. If you are interested, email don@1stmile.net.

Try turning the master power on and off a few times. Give it a few secs inbetween power offs and that should work. It's worked for me. Sometimes it takes longer that other times to show a picture.

Dell w3000 has green power on no video just audio only


Had same problem as described by others, green light, audio, but no picture. Decided to look inside. Layed the TV face down on three textbooks (1 at top & 1 at left & Right) so that back (9 large screws & 2 small screws) could be removed along with stand. From the power supply (board that 110v AC plugs into) there is a cable connected to a circuit board on the left (again looking from the back of the TV) covered by metal shielding. Unplug this cable clean the male contacts with a miniture wire brush (bought mine at Home Depot) & plug the cable back into the socket. With rubber gloves (just to be safe) plug the AC cord into the back of the TV & wall and turn on your TV. The bulbs should activate in 7 - 8 seconds. Reassemble the back of the TV & install the stand. Enjoy your TV Doug
