Question about Dell W4200 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Dell 42inch plasma tv

Took it to local shop and they charged $135.00 to tell me that it needs an X board and a Y board? So they say they can fix it for $850.00 I phoned Dell and the parts each cost $18.99 . My question is: should it really cost me that much to get these 2 boards and more importantly is this something that i could maybe put in myself? Please help i am about to throw the tv out of the door and forget i ever heard the name Dell.

I am no expert but if the board comes already all assembled and you are capable of doing the remove and replace deal i think you hould go for it yourself. Worst case, you can spend 850. get a nice lcd. Maybe even less now

I have a dell 50' plasma tv when turned on does nothing. no audio or screen display. dell tells me $1500 for shipping or s.o.l. they know there is a problem but hope custs dont complain. help


If the TV is under warranty, give them hell. Shouldn't pay more than the TV is worth for shipping, any less a dime.
If not under warranty, best to have a TV tech to come to your home to diagnose the problem. Depending on where you live, independent TV repair shop will charge about $100 for the diagnoses service. Common things that go bad for plasma TVs is the Power Supply Board or the Y buffer/main parts. Basically, cheaper to have someone come to you.

50 inch dell plasma tv has audio but no video


the problem was the y-sus board, i had a local tv repair shop diagnos that much for me. although, he couldn't fix it i did some research and found a company in california, itritek.com, who could. you send him the y-sus board and the two buffer boards and he not only repairs them but he upgrades them. apparently the y-sus board gets too much heat and eventually goes out, sometimes the buffer boards are affected too. itritek.com replaces the components on the y-sus board with better parts which are more heat resistent. i believe this will help you with your problem. let me know...good luck.

Is Dell W4200HD Y-Main board and Dell W4201C HD Y-Main board compatible


The port locations do not seem to line up the same so I'm pretty sure they are not interchangeable

It can be worked on by a local TV repair, then TV was made for Dell by Philips

Open the back cover and check the fuses on Y Sus Board and X Sus Board. If you can find a blown fuse, just replace that board and your problem will be fixed.
