Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Color distortion/blank screen on 50% of monitor

Two problems, probably related:

1) There's a 2" wide vertical stripe of color distortion. From straight black, the stripe appears a dark gray at normal times, not distinguishable when colors on screen. Randomly after some use, the stripe will "freak out" and turn all sorts of random colors, sometimes freezing to a solid color, often correcting itself.

2) The entire portion of the screen to the right side of the stripe will begin shaking and become distorted with lines of random colors after ~30 minutes of use. Will sometimes correct by itself but usually turning off the monitor for an extended period will fix the problem, but temporarily.

Thanks much for the help!

I have a 52 inch Samsung TV, on the screen have solid, color vertical lines on the right, about 1/8 wide, on the same time the half of screen blink on the right too.


not knowing the model... i will try to help with this common samsung issue, if i can. / unplug the tv, and wait a few minutes to avoid shocks. / remove back panel. you will see several ribbon connectors, (about an 1" to 1 1/2" wide) usually near the bottom. / carefully remove the ribbon (ONE AT A TIME) and clean the contacts GENTLY with a pencil eraser. (DO NOT use chemicals) / reinsert the ribbons and try the tv. // vertical stripes are almost always the result of poor contact between ribbon and socket. / NOTE!. you can do a quick test before opening the set by [carefully!!!!] twisting the screen and watch to see if the vertical stripes change or disappear. / if the stripes change, bet on it being the ribbon contact problem.//// hope this helps, it has worked on a number of TVs.------Jay

My hp vs 15 displays vertical color stripes that alternate different colors wether its hooked up tp computer or not what is wrong, is it junk


It may sound strange but be absolutely sure the cable is plugged into the monitor. Adapter on the computer. The serial adapter on the back looks just like video. Video actually has a faintly noticeable monitor icon rigtht next to it. Plugging into a serial can eventually blow out your monitor. Also, a.badcable can do the same thing. And if you have messed up the monitor's settings you will see the same

LG Flatron L1930B lcd monitor - 3 vert. stripes, center one dead


sounds like the pixel controllers have gone bad or one or more of the color (RGB, RED, GREEN, BLUE) controllers have gone out. this is quite common in lcd monitors/tvs and is usually caused by pressure on the edges of the screen (you grabbed it too tightly when moving the monitor) or just faulty controllers. they are expected to eventually go bad, ask LG for yourself, they will tell you the same thing. If you just bought it, that can be considered a mfr defect that they will replace, IF IT IS IN WARRANTY!!!!! Unfort. there is no fix due to seal that placed on the actual lcd panel inside the plastic casing. Youd spend more money trying to find the part and install it than just buying a new monitor. hate to say it but im an avid gamer and have gone through about 4 lcd monitors in tha past 3 years due to everyday use

Monitor screen with pink line


While I've never seen the stripe be pink, it's not impossible for it to appear that color. Your monitor is bad, and isn't easily or cheaply fixed.
