Dell UltraSharp 1800FP - display leak - blue craziness

Hello there, when I turn my Dell UltraSharp 1800FP on, it may work fine or it will go weird blueish effect. I tried all kinds of things - without the VGA cable, the monitor shows the "self diagnostics display" and right side of that box is "leaking" blueish, hard to explain for me, but someone there will understand. It could stay like that and run up and down with nicwe clear NO SIGNAL box or it shoots and leaks the color just on the side of that box or goes crazy all over the display. As I said, hard for me to explain... is there anyone who would know what am I talking about and help. Please...

That one is going to take component level troubleshooting. It could be the power suply, but I might first suspect the video board.

My Dell 1800FP monitor went black

Confirm your cables did not work themselves loose. Try using a different power cable to confirm that it was not the cable. Finally try a lamp in the socket you are using for the monitor power cable, if you are not using a power bar but even then just to rule that out. If the only thing left is that your monitor is dead, you will need to recycle that one and purchase yourself another one. Sorry

Dell ultrasharp blinks on and off

It could be a setting problem, power saver setting, or a mode that the monitor does not really support - things like refresh rate - or actual hardware.

Easiest way is to borrow another like monitor, and say another video cord and see if the problem remains, or if a newer monitor says 'out of range' or similar.

Then, if you have a fancy video card,remove it and use something primitive. Not reading instructions is a big cause.

If its not a setting issue, and as the inverter board is ok; if the above description is correct, reseat the inner board connecting cables.(wood fires and seaside locations) If not that, a lucky guess might be the electros on the logic board.

Monitor on but not working properly

If you just built the computer..the motherboard will give you a warning that some hardware has changed. you have to connect your keyboard and go into the bios and make sure everything is right. To be safe select set to default factory settings , save and reboot the computer. This is to prevent the settings for a previous cpu be used for the new one.

Left half of screen is perfect. Right half of screen shakes

Look to see if there is any kind of magnet by the screen. Even speakers wil do it. So does anything that emits micro waves such as cell phones and microwave ovens. So just move it or anything that you think could mess it up.
