Chances are the driver tabs inside from the panel to the internal controller board have failed. This is the actual controller board that the internal video card connects to (hidden under the silver cover on the back of the physical panel).
It is not a cheap repair, and it is normally best to source another panel, or just replace the monitor all together.

Sorry to say that it is a permanent damage of your monitor screen. Usually you can do nothing. But if you want to change the monitor screen, you have to visit a monitor & television specialist.
Cost will be 1/4 of a new monitor.

This not good! the problem is in the LCD panel display, and there is no way to repair this on a practical scale, this would not be a cost effective repair, far cheaper to replace the monitor.

My 2001FP shows the contrast cotrol greyed out and the screen has very low contrast, which I need to correct. I use it with a Dell Inspion 9300. The laptop screen has excellent contrast. The 2001FP...

I have four Dell 2001FP monitors. The unavailable contrast is standard for this monitor when used with digital input (DVI). Make sure your brightness is at 100%.If you want a better result of dynamic range and color, the only effective option is color calibration. I use the inexpensive Huey Pro, available
several places, including eBay. Retail is around $100. It something one uses maybe twice a year, takes five minutes to install and use, and the results are notable. I'm a designer, and need excellent color. This is the best solution. Calibrate your laptop as well, and the color should be almost exactly the same between them.

As an alternative, you can use the color settings, select User Preset, and start with something around 40 red 43 green and 37 blue. Adjust proportionately upward until you get what you want.

Another possibility is to use a different connector cable if your laptop has that option, since your monitor an take four different input formats.

Good luck.

It sounds like a hardware problem ,if it still has warranty then you should return it.
It could also be a faulty vga card the only way to test would be to connect monitor to another computer.

Good Luck

Monitor gone black but shows self test not floating

Sounds as though the control unit has died. There are 3 parts to most monitors. The video processor board, power supply board and the HV/backlight board. You can replace the video processor board.
Make sure you leave the unit unplugged first and set for an hour. Usually no other fix then replace the board.

Dell 2001 fp back panel removal ?

First remove the four screws behind the stand mount on the monitor. Then turn monitor vertically so thet the bottom is up. Next look for slots betweem the portions of the srame on the bottom. Use a slotted screw driver to pry open the bottom. Becareful to not damage the plastic. As bottom is opening pry around the entire frame it will come loose. Make sure you place the monitor on a table covered with a towel in the final process to un clip the case.

DVI went bust

Have you contacted Dell? I am sure the warranty is gone but they might try to help. You can take it to a T.V. shop and have them check it. Sometimes a repair cost more than a monitor though. Acer has the best monitor that I have seen. I put some to a test at Staples and Acer was the only one that could stay working at a high resolution. Strange because Acer is usually ****. Good luck. Sorry I could not give you a better answer. I hope that I put you on the right track though. Does that monitor have a VGA connection on it that you can use. Some have both. Maybe you can get an adapter for your video card. Most cards come with one.
