Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor
When the monitor is powered up it will flash the Ultra Sharp Logo then nothing. If it is connected to computer it will stay awake but just a blank screen. If not connected to computer it will go to sleep within a few seconds with the green light turning amber. Can anyone help us with this problem?

I have to ask....... Do you have it on the D-Sub position (if running VGA) or the DVI-D position (Running HD mode)? If it's in the wrong input position (there are 4 available),then the monitor will look like it's working but the screen will be blank (act exactly as you describe). If you have it on the right input and still have a blank screen, then I have to agree with Pulliam.

From your description your backlight is going out. The fluorescent light when it begins to burn out tries to draw too much power. Your inverter is sensing this 'too much' power draw and shuts down power to the back light. Replacing the backlight is the most technically difficult repair of an LCD, and most repair shops don't even offer this service. I recommend that you sell your LCD 'AS IS' on eBay or a similar website. The Power board and the Control Board are both usable parts that can be easily salvaged from most Dell Ultrasharp monitors.
