Dell LCD TV W3207C turns off after a few seconds
I just got a Dell Tv W3207C. It powers up, backlight comes on for a couple of seconds then it shuts of by itself. Only once I had it on for a bit longer and I could see onscreen menu for a brief moment then it disappeared and it shut off again.
Before getting into what I've tried so far I just need to mention that I only have basic knowledge about electronics and I'm learning things everyday from people like you, so please bear with me :)
Things that I tried and found so far:
-looked for obvious burn marks, swollen caps: seems to look OK
-checked power board output voltage: not OK
3 pins should read 5Vdc but instead they read 1.591Vdc as bellow
Power board has 3 output connectors:
1st connector: +12VS pin reading 11.8Vdc, GND pins 0Vdc, +5V pins 1.591Vdc, GND pin 0Vdc, +5V2-STBY pin 5Vdc, +3V pin 3Vdc.
2nd connector: +24V pins 24.32 Vdc, GND pins 0Vdc, ON/OFF pin 0.466Vdc
3rd connector: GND pins 0Vdc, +24V pins 24.04Vdc
I removed T-con and inverter connectors one by one to see if there is any difference in the output voltage but nothing changed.
I'm not sure if I really narrowed it down correctly to the power board or there's more to it. I also searched online for service manual and no luck.
Any advice would be really appreciated because I don't really know where to go from here due to my modest knowledge of troubleshooting electronics to component level.
Thank you in advance!!
