Question about Dell U2711 Monitor

U2711 display problem on the right half : image moves to the left

The right half of the image moves a little bit to the left (something about 5mm) for just an instant. Problem occurs randomly : sometimes 2 or 3 in 1 minute ; sometimes 1 in 30 minutes tested 2 different graphic cards, 2 different dvi cable, and different refresh rates. I know u2711 display uses 2 chip to process the high definition. One for the half left and 1 for the right so it explains why a lot of problem concerns only one half of the display. Thanks in advance for an idea ...

    Thanks for the help, but i'm quite sure display drivers are not involved in this problem. It is a physical problem, as bad connection, bad wire, bad capacitor, interferences or something like that. A video on youtube called " Dell U2711 monitor problem" show exactly the same problem, except mine is a hopefully lot less frequent

Hello,
I have the same problem and this is how I found your post.
I suspected both cable & display board so changed both to no avail.
Searching in google "flickering streaks dell u2711" I found the cause and the solution here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_En6ih88uws
This may be too late or inadequate for your specific problem but as it may help, I still post this potential answer.
I have contacted Dell support to ask if I can have a try at "repairing" (cleaning connections & spraying anti-oxidant) myself without losing my maintenance contract otherwise I have to stay too long without this otherwise excellent monitor. I am an ordinary user, not a technician, but this solution seems simple enough if careful.

SOURCE: LCD Dell Monitor displaying purple and green rather then picture.

sounds like your monitor is starting to go out. if there are any speakers near your monitor, it is likely magnetic interference. try moving your monitor to a different area and see if it still does this. if it does, i would replace the monitor. if it doesn't, just simply reorganize the area around your monitor and it should go away after degaussing the screen.

Well if you have a warranty please send it back before you damage it and then don't get anything. See if it has a screen reset button on the front or back such as factory reset. Hope this helps.

Double vision


it looks like when you took this apart you did not alignt the lenses properly, there should be a locating groove or stub which these lenses should fit to... it looks like they are pressing against the stub but are not located properly, hence the distortion. try taking it apart again....when you put it back together again the fault may have gone.
