Question about Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1" LCD Monitor
The short version of my question is, where can I get a replacement video board for this monitor?
The longer version needs a little background explanation. The monitor performed beautifully for a few weeks when it was new (about 1-1/2 years ago), and then it started to be flaky (with a tearing picture that would clear up when the unit got warm). After a couple of days it ceased functioning at all, with the unit producing a screen message to the effect that "synch cannot be achieved" with any of its various input modes. (I forget the exact words of the message, but that is the gist.) Dell has been of no help, since the unit had been originally purchased in a foreign country -- India, I believe. (My son had bought it from a private party.)
I have the unit apart and can see that there are two circuit boards, one obviously the power supply and the other handling the video functions. I'm assuming the problem is in the latter board, but that there's nothing I can do to repair it. Replacing it, however, would appear to be an easy task. Any suggestions would be welcome.
The only place to get replacement parts are for the Dell. Call them up and order the part. The part you will need not the video AD board. What you need it a backlight inverter / power supply. The one you had are busted... or you can repaired yourself...by replaced a few busted capacitors. If you are lucky you can spotted by a bulging on the top of each caps... Not sure, just replaced all the caps... Good lucks!
