I have the same TV - Same problem. My TV was replaced twice by Dell while it was under warranty. When I contacted the out-of- warranty contractor for Dell, Jabil, I was advised by a tech that Jabil no longer repairs this tv and added this is a common problem w/this TV. He further advised that 98% of the time, it was the result of fuzes f1 and f2 on the inverter board "blowing". If you can't find a local shop to replace these fuzes, plan B would be to send it to a repair center in Ohio, name unrecalled, 800 941-4478. Personally, as this seems to be a recurring problem w/this tv, I'm going to cut my losses and get a name brand
