Dell w1700 lcd tv
Well here's my problem, my daughter bought this dell tv monitor around two years ago and it just went poof. She said she saw smoke coming from it. Do they repair lcd monitors that go poof! I checked dell and they dont sell that make any more, but they have them on ebay for around $300 bucks. Should she junk it and get another one, what do u think? Thx mike

i don't think it wouldn't be worth repairing. it's cheaper to just replace a monitor, especially lcds.
Yep WHAT I TOUGHT
I have one of those daughteres that refuses to listen to her father, keeps on talking about the money she paid for that beast of a monitor $800 WOW!. sEEMS DELL NO LONGER SELLS THE W1700 LCD TV ANYMORE. They have them on ebay for around $300. I kept telling her to shut down the computer whens she's done with it because of the heat. She has that dell slimline computer i told her to stay away from. I could have built her a nice computer that she could upgrade, but that was also a no no lol. Well thx alot for the advice and im off to ebay lol. mike
I'd just buy a brand new model of a current generation. You will definitely be able to get a 17" LCD display brand new for a lot less than $300.

Even if that sale ends tomorrow, they have over 125 LCD monitors between $100.00 and $200.00. If she really needs a TV, LCD monitors/TVs are a bit more.
Some advise - don't buy an "Open Box" one because it may have been returned due to dead pixels (more than 8 policy) - Consider those that have lots of good reviews.
Lot's of folks prefer to buy LCD monitors over-the-counter from merchants that will allow you to connect it to a computer in the store before paying - because of the dead pixle policy.
But, the instances of dead pixles have been very low during the last year or so.
