Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Dell 2001FP can't change input modes

The Dell 2001FP started switching between input modes at random without any buttons being pushed. For a while I could change it back to the desired mode, but now it's stuck on one input mode (3: S-Video) and won't allow selection. The buttons on the control board make a nice click but will not change mode nor open menu.

At power-on the screen shows the Dell UltraSharp welcome message, but then goes blank. If I press the input mode button and the menu button together the screen shows me the message saying 'No input signal'. The screen never gives the floating 4-color self-test box.

Strangely, two input mode lights are illuminated (both 3: S-Video and 4:Composite) instead of just one as you'd expect

This happens regardless of whether or not it is connected to any video cables.

Any suggestions?

I have seen many of these. It appears the video processor board is dying or dead. You can replace the board or the monitor.

This is the board. Not to hard to replace if you have some tech ability.

Try the monitor if you can on another computer and see if it stays in power save mode. If it does then the monitor is bad.

If you try the monitor on another computer and you get video then that means theres an issue with the original computer.

SOURCE: My Dell E207WFP LCD monitor has a blank screen

Hello!

For this issue you might reconsider focusing on your CPU Tower, the way you're describing the issue, the monitor losses it connection from the computer, therefore showing the "analog input..." This is a power saving feature of your monitor. This means that the monitor is no longer a signal from your computer. Possible points of failure for this one could be, PSU, memory, motherboard or add on video card if you have one installed, best approach i could suggest is to run diagnostics- if your still able to boot the computer - Try powering up the computer, when you see the Dell logo tap F12 several times until you see some options then look for diagnostics, then run it..(this is for a DELL pc) if it fails then a possible hardware issue, if your pc still have warranty, call in for help.

Good luck!

Hope it helps!

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.

Make sure you use the correct selection for your input (the leftmost silver button) to cycle through DVI-D, D-Sub, S-Video, and composite.If you are using this as a second monitor from your laptop, you have to activate the secon dmonitor using your keyboard or the operating system.

I have a dell 2001fp. it is locked and can not access it to change it to vga, however it has a fine picture on dvi, any ideas


When you change to VGA, you have to change cables to a D-SUB cable. If you want to use S-VIdeo, you have to use an S-Video cable. You could actually have four different devices using the four different cables connected to the monitor one time, and change which one you are looking at by suing the button on the front panel to select the appropriate input.

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.
