Question about Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
After about 10 minutes of use my Dell 2405FPW LCD display beings to throw a "fit". The fit begins with a bunch of red pixels showing up in random places. A few minutes later the entire display goes wavy. I've replaced DVI cables and the symptoms are reproducable across a number of different computers.
Here's a video of the display acting up.
The symptom you describe is typical of a thermal problem in the display. It might be in the LCD panel itself, in which case the only repair is to replace the display. It could also be in a component on the main board, and spray component cooler can be used to selectively chill parts to see if it has any effect. Even then, though, it's usually large-scale integrated circuits on these board that have go bad. Even if you can find a source for the part, changing it normally requires tools and techniques beyond almost every shop. Even the manufacturers "repair" these by simply replacing the entire board.
Sad to say, if this isn't covered by some kind of repair warranty, replacement might be your only option.
