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!

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

Try using a diffrent computer on this and see if its not the video card doing it or if not its the controller board inside that connect to the video card that would need to be replaced at this time, if there are no dead or stuck pixels it might be worth replacing rather then buying a new one.

Hi Detrix, Check with www.lcdrepair.net if you want a repair. Something is wrong with your LCD controller and or GUI interface circuit or the circuit supplying power to it. If your technically endowed, you may want to open the monitor case and clean the dust and lint from around the circuits using a Small paint brush to sweep away any built up dust. These circuits take the Signal from the computer and controls the 2.5 million pixels on the LCD screen. Dsut can cause major problems with handling all that data. Give it a shot, what do you have to loose, its not dangerous if the monitor is unplugged.
