Dell W2600 power problem - out of warranty :-(

  • Hi all, Got what appears to be the common power fault with my TV. Dells online support page does not accept my service tag number. Anyone else had problems getting through to someone for help on this? Thanks

  • Since a few days i also have a power problem with my W2600. The power button sometimes does not react when pressed to power on. After keeping the button pressed for 5 seconds and waiting a few minutes, the button reacts and the device is powered on. Any suggestions on how to correct this? Thanks Jan

  • Chris we have serious problems with this tv...we wait for the tv to drain of power then try to hold the power button until it turns on. I've spoken with dell at lest 5 times all which of lasted at least 30mins- hour call... to try to get this resolved.  I've been transfered here and there back and forth trying to resolve this.  We just want a tv that works!  We've been out of a tv for about 6 months now.  Please.... help us to get our tv to work or to get a new one!!!:smileysad: 

  • helpwithtv,

    I think I already answered your private message. Did I?
  • Hi ChrisM, I have yet to receive any feedback from you. Could you please give me an update.


    Many thanks



  • Manners,

    Open the FAQ at the top of this TV board and read the document, "TVs (W2600, W2306C, W2606C) with No Power. New exchange procedure".
  • I talked with a Dell rep online yesterday and the rep would not help me out.  He told me to "buy a new tv" because this one cannot be fixed.  I too have the power problem.  Ugh.

  • DELL-ChrisM, I also own a Dell W2600 that is now collecting dust due to some power problem. Can you give me some suggestions on how to fix it. Regards.
  • Ipdumo,

  • helpwithtv,

    Did you follow the above instructions and tell the technicians to look up those documents?
  • I have the same problem - i am out of the warranty period.  What is the problem with this so I know what to tell a TV guy to get this fixed.  Why hasn't Dell done anything about this.  Would make me think leaving customers with bad experiences will push them to the competition instead.  Also - got big runaround with this whole deal so far.  Have been on the phone calling 3 different #'s for over 1.5 hours so far.  Quite frustrating and bad way to conduct business by Dell.  I am in the financial sector and see Dell stock dropping.  Customer service and word of mouth bad or good is big.  Can you please tell me what the issue is so i can get to bottom of this and fixed.  I don't want to spend more hours on phone and more time wasted when Dell should already be on top of a common problem that has happened on multiple units.
