Question about Dell W5001C 50 in. Plasma HDTV
I got a dell 50 inch plasma i have had it for 14 mouths and now when i turn it on and all i get is a black screen or i see the blue screen that says dell then it goes to a black screen i only have the 1 year warranty dell says i can send it to one of their repair guys and pay 400 to look at it plus shipping ,parts , lobber or send it back and pay $2,000 and send the broken one back do i have to send it to one of their repair guy or can a local repair guy and id it normal for a tv to break that is this new
I have just seen this problem - or simmilar. The TV I looked at never showed the DELL logo or any other video. The sound is good , and changes chennel... All seems to work fine, but no picture. Anyway, I have been a component level technician for 18 years. I have TV's sent in by local Casino for repair. I repaired this model and sent back this week. Will need to see how it holds up, but I upgraded the parts - so it should work fine and last longer. I am not sure that all the TV's in this model have the same boards in them. The other Dell TV's I have worked on have the same model numbers, but have different electronics inside. Anyway, this may be a problem that I can repair.

I've sent an email to Coretronic which is the manufacturer of the Y Main Board, to see if they can sell it or if there is a replacement part. I will keep you posted!
