Question about Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

LCD Monitor doesn't work!

My monitor won't come on. I have a Dell 2005WFP that won't power up. What happens is, if I reseat the power cord, the on/off switch blinks slowly along with the number 2 on the LED panel. This will go on for about 5 or so minutes before it goes black again. I also can see the slightest flicker in the video as the lights below are blinking. Also, while this blinking is going on, pressing any of the buttons does nothing; the only thing the monitor "responds" to is pulling out and plugging back in the cord.

I also tried reseating the video cables, both analog and digital, but again that did nothing.

Is the monitor toast or is it repairable (at a cost lower than simply buying a replacement)?

Thanks!

    Sorry, Eagle, I closed it by mistake and wasn't sure I'd get double-billed by reentering.

    Thank you for your response; I'm glad it's a matter of replacing a part. Unfortunately, I have zero experience with monitor repair, so I guess I'll have to look for a shop.

    I have the same problem, and would very much like to fix it.

    I more or less have the same problem. When I turn on the monitor the display scrolls for 5-10 minutes while the screen warms up and makes a shrill high pitched whine. Once it's warmed up the display works fine for 30-45 minutes and then the power starts flickering on and off.

    Where can I find a new inverter board and what's involved with replacing it? Simple soldering or just unplugging an old card and connecting a new one?

Hey why did you disconnect the live session? Anyways what you have is a faulty inverter board.. You can get a replacement easily. I got one from ebay last week for 35$. So if you just tell me the part number I can get you the best deal..

Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue:

1. Reseat the power cord and verify a good power source.

To reseat the power cord, follow the steps below:

1.1 Power down the system.
1.2 Unplug the power cord.
1.3 Wait approximately one minute.
1.4 Reseat the power cord.
1.5 Verify that the power cord is plugged directly into a known good power outlet.

2. Verify that the monitor is receiving power from a known good outlet and bypass any power strips.

To test the power outlet, perform the following steps:

2.1 Unplug the monitor power cable from the power outlet.
2.2 Plug in a different device, and verify that the device is operational.
2.3 If there is no power try another outlet. Remove any power strips and try plugging directly into the main power outlet.

3. Verify the monitor is powered on and the power button is engaged.

Ensure that the monitor is powered on and that the power button is fully engaged. To do so, check the power LED on the front of the monitor; it should be lit.

NOTE: There are two types of power switches:
A mechanical switch characterized by a long travel. You have to push it further and you will hear an audible click.
An electrical switch that has a short travel and almost no click.

A lit monitor LED can be any of the following:

* Green
* Blinking green
* Yellow
* Blinking yellow
* A combination, such as alternating green and yellow

Any of these states indicate the monitor is receiving power and that you should proceed.

4. Swap power cables.

To try a known good power cable on the monitor, follow the instructions below:

4.1 Turn off a working monitor.
4.2 Unplug the cable from the back of the working monitor, and unplug the cable from the wall.
4.3 Unplug the cable from the monitor in question.
4.4 Plug in the cable that came from the working monitor.

5. Run the monitor self test.

To run the monitor self test, perform the following steps:

5.1 Power off both the computer and the monitor.
5.2 Unplug the video cable from the computer or video card.
5.3 Reseat the power cord to the monitor, ensuring it is plugged into a known-good outlet.
5.4 Power on the monitor.

NOTE: The monitor self test will move around on some monitor models. If the monitor self test moves, allow it to move to the affected areas of the monitor to check for the problem described.

If the Self test failed, it's possible that the monitor is faulty. Contact dell to check if it's still under warranty so they can replace it.

Hobo, The chances are good that it?s the monitor; however, there are a few things you can check: -Try connecting the monitor to another computer, if the problem follows. If it doesn?t try the rest of these suggestions, if not skip to the bottom. -Remove the VGA connector from your PC and inspect the pins to make sure none are bent over or corroded. -Try replacing the VGA cord that connects the LCD with the computer. -Try opening your PC, removing and reinstalling the video card assuming it isn?t built into the motherboard. This monitor has a three year warranty from Dell so I wouldn?t try opening the monitor case until you call them. Even if you suspect it is call them up anyway, on more than one occasion I?ve called Dell about a problem with an out of warranty PC only to find out there was a unadvertised replacement program. So call it can?t hurt. If its out of warranty then depending on your comfort level you can either try to fix it or take it to the local repair shop. Usually they will do an eval for about $35. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
