Question about Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

LCD Monitor will not switch input selections

It's currently locked on the S-Video - pushing selection buttons nothing happens - this happened before, but self-corrected itself - I have a dual monitor setup with 2 20" Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW - the other is fine.

Hi sophie,

I see you want to extend you monito to an LG external monitor.

Have you tried selecting the input PC or the input that is for the cable that you are using for the Video.

If you are using HDMI select the Input HDMI on your LG if you are using DVI then you should select the input DVI to be able to get the signal from the Laptop come out of your LG.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

When I turn the monitor on I get a message "In


Most Dell LCDs have multiple inputs and they will go into "standby" while waiting for a signal from your PC. This happens when your PC goes into "sleep" mode or if you are sure your PC is not in "sleep" mode then usually the LCD is not in the correct input selection. Check the input selection for the appropriate input. As always, make sure the cables are securely connected. Hope this helps.

The monitor flashes on/off then the ACER screen, flashes the desktop but goes off again


There are a number of issues that can cause this. The first that comes to mind is that if you have a video card with 2 ports on it (check where your video cable currently plugs in) you may need to switch to the other one. If there is an input button on the bottom right of the monitor near the power button you may need to press it to select the appropriate input (Newer monitors include HDMI, DVI, and VGA). If this doesn't work try a known good monitor to see if maybe it's a problem with the computer itself.

Some fault in the dishwasher is causing it to believe the door is not locked.

I would check the door lock.

check this youtube video out for the location of the door switch.

(quality of video may not be the best but gives an idea of its location).

If you can give me the exact model number I can find out more details of the problem you are having.

This usually happens when switching from a CRT to an LCD monitor. If your monitor is new and you are connecting for the first time, reconnect to the old monitor, set the resolution to its lowest setting (usually 800 x 600), shut the machine down, plug in the new monitor and boot the desktop to watch the screen.

If you are unfamiliar with how to change the resolution, here are the steps to do so:

1. Right-click on the desktop
2. Select Properties
3. In the Settings tab, click and drag the Screen Resolution option to its furthest left position.
4. Click Apply and OK.

If this doesn't fix the problem, it's likely that there is a driver conflict. If you still have the old monitor, or if you have another CRT available, boot up again when connected to the CRT and perform the following steps to remove the old drivers from the machine:

1. Click Start
2. Right-click My Computer
3. Select Manage
4. Select Device Manager
5. Expand Monitors
6. Right click on the monitor you wish to uninstall and select "Uninstall"
7. If there are any other entries, uninstall those, as well.

Then shut your machine down, plug in the LCD monitor and boot the machine.

If the above mentioned steps don't help, try switching the type of cable used to connect the monitor to the desktop. If you are currently using a VGA cable, try switching to DVI (depending on how old your graphics card is this option might not be available). If using DVI, try switching to VGA.

If the LCD monitor manages to work, I would recommend you verify the proper drivers are installed. To do this:

1. Click Start
2. Right-click My Computer
3. Select Manage
4. Select Device Manager
5. Expand Monitors
6. Right click on the monitor you wish to update the drivers for and select "Update Driver" (you will need to be connected to the Internet for the automatic update to work)
7. Select "Yes, this time only" and click Next
8. Leave the default option selected on the next screen and click Next.

If the automatic driver update finds no match for the hardware, you may need to download the driver and install it manually. Click HERE to download the driver for your monitor.

Save the file to your desktop and extract the file to your desktop. In Device Manager, right click on the Acer monitor and select Update Driver.

Select "Yes, this time only" and click Next.
Select the Advanced option on the next screen and click Next.

Check the checkbox next to "Include this location in the search:"

Click Browse.
Minimize any option currently expanded and search for the recently extracted folder underneath "Desktop".

Expand it and select the folder inside.
The OK button should now be available. Click OK and click Next.

The driver should install and your monitor should function normally from that point forward.

If none of those options work, you might want to think about opening a support case with Acer or returning the monitor for one that is comparable.

I hope I was able to help you! If you have any questions, please feel free to respond.

Bought Samsung 2233BW Monitor, hooked the two plugs, power and DV1 cord started computer and switched on monitor, NOTHING HAPPENED. Silly thing just unhooked Samsung and hooked back up the AOC monitor no...


You might need to go into the monitor's setup menu and select the digital input. (That's DVI, by the way, for Digital Video Input, and not DV1.) Some monitors automatically detect the input but not all of them. Obviously, this doesn't apply if the Samsung has only a DVI input. It might also be necessary to tell the video card to turn on the DVI output. You can do this with your old AOC connected and use the video setting utility supplied with the video card.

There is power but no image


These are the troubleshooting steps for No Image:
No Screen Image
• Make sure monitor is turned on.
• Make sure the video cable is securely connected to both the monitor and PC or
Audio/Video apparatus.
• Make sure you have selected the correct video input source
• Adjust the brightness and contrast levels.
