Re: Dell Ultrasharp 2005fpw

The problem you are describing is definitely a bad picture tube.please replace it or the problem you are describing sounds like high voltage regulation problems. The easiest way to tell is by changing from a black raster to a white raster. If the size changes quite noticeably or jumps alot then you have a regulation problem. The first thing to do is check your high voltage while changing the raster from black to white. If the HV varies by a large margin, then you have a flyback problem. If it doesn't, check the voltage at the collector of the HOT while varying the raster again. If the voltage changes alot then check your B+ line. Typically what goes out in this case is a capacitor(typically 100uf-350v or so) or the B+ regulator. Hope this helps.

No display.

Make sure the proper input is selected

1: D-SUB for Blue VGA cable
2: DVI-D for White DVI cable

The option selected should be indicated on the power save screen.

If changing the input select and rebooting the computer have no effect an no video from the computer is ever displayed, then the monitor is in need of repair.
