Flat screen TV teardown and fix

in Teardowns by DP | 2 comments

Hak8or got his hands on a few broken down TVs. One of which is a Dell  W3000 set. It’s panel was intact so he figured it was worth to try and fix. After some probing he figured out there was leftover Flux short-circuiting the HV CCFL driver. He cleaned it up and the TV started without any further issues.  Detailed pics of his teardown and fix in the forum.

    I have a Dell W3000.
    I was informed to replace the 2 capacitors so because the picture will not come on all the time.
    Since you have knowledge of this could you send me a picture showing where the capacitors are located & what capacitors I would need?
    It would be of great help to me.
    Thank you.
