Question about Dell W2600 26 in. LCD Television
I have just come off the phone to Dell Support and they have refused to replace my out of warranty TV. This is a know fault that has been on the Dell forums in their thousands since early 2005. In the US they replace the out of warranty TV with reconditioned ones or even the new models. The UK were still selling the TV's when they were replacing them out of warranty in the US! Some customers have had up to 4 replacements that developed the same fault. The problem is when you switch it off, especially using the button it will not come back on. You have to leave it disconnected from the mains for at least an hour, sometimes overnight. I have access to an electronic workshop, does anyone have a solution.
>you can try this: Replace capacitor (10uF/50V) on small board >mounted to power supply next to mother board power connector.
didn't work for me. any other suggestions?

I had exactly the same problems with dell in the UK, at first they told me that as my set was 6 months out of warranty they the only thing I clould do was scrap it, but I persisted and told them that I knew they were replacing sets in the US which were out of waranty and that the set had an inherrent problem and they soon changed their mind, my set was replaced with a reconditioned unit within 1 week by special delivery, keep on ringing them and they will replace yours.

Check with this site, as if Dell is selling a product with known inherent problems over a period of time, i'm sure they have to replace the unit, but just check your rights. http://www.oft.gov.uk/Consumer/default.htm

I232 IC is the fault. A programmed chip that has to boot up in a certain order for it to trigger the powersupply to come up. The part is surface mounted and requires special tools and knowledge to remove, replace & reprogram if needed.

Does the capacitor 10uf/50v fix the dell w2600 no power problem if so where can I get 2 of them?

I have no solution but I have now joined the legion of broken W2607C owners. My LED flashes yellow or amber when power is applied, but screen remains black. Guess it helps explain Dell's stock performance.

I also had this problem with my Dell 26" LCD (Twice) first problem no power after 6 months and then the exchange / replacement they sent did the same thing after 4 months. So after 12 months of trying to find someone to repair a Dell TV with no luck, I read the posts on this site. I imediatly called Dell and after a year of sitting on the floor dead in my apartment and out of warranty Dell is finally sending a replacement. IF YOU ARE HAVING THE NO POWER PROBLEM WITH YOUR DELL W2600 LCD, CALL DELL AND GET IT REPLACED.

My solution: once your TV is on do not turn it off completely but put it in sleep mode. This way the TV is never completely out of power. I have not yet tried the sleep function on the remote, but I have hooked TV to a PC and use the VGA entry mode. This way, when I put my PC in sleep mode the TV goes also. If you want to watch regulat TV, just use the remore to tune in to your channel, it will automatically take the signal. Try t and let me know. It works with me.

Dell won't do **** all.
I got one and they are more interested in a damn TAG Number.
My TV Set doesn't have a back on it so that''s a wee dram of a problem for me
Why can't they say the fault is eg. RV2 that supplies C2 or something like that
Dell are Hopeless, i wrote to them 6 times.
It's the Tag thing i can't get round
I am not into paying for phone calls, i like answers by E-mail.
It's cheaper that way.
I need you fine people to tell me what gas failed on this board so i can put it right.
I would really appreciate it

I am having the same problem with my Dell LCD W2600 which is over 12 months old. Dell suggest will replace it with a reconditioned tv but i would have to pay some near the price of a new lcd tv. Otherwise i should contact LiteOn, the company that built the tv for Dell for them to supply the parts to me for the repairs which i could carry out myself. I am Still trying to get liteon contact information. i may have to call dell back for it.

SOURCE: Dell W2600 Power Issue
Remove power supply board and replace all caps on small piggy back boards.
I had this set given as a right off and spent two weeks chasing for a fault it would come on when i felt like it and sometimes not at all.
After removing the three small boards from the power supply and replacing all the electrolytic caps (some of them were leaky) problem solved.
