Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor

A follow-up on my Dell vertical lines issues

Thanks for your answer, Nathan.

I tried to follow up with you, but I'm new to the forum and didn't know whether I should "Ask Me" or the Comment feature. So I did both!

I suspected it was a hardware problem. Sounds like it might be.

One extra ripple is that the vertical blue lines disappear sometimes after the screen saver disappears when I move my mouse after a period of inactivity.

Does that still suggest the display cable is bad? Does having the screen go dormant for a while gives the cable a break somehow? That sounds a little strange to me, but hey, I'm not a hardware guy.

    Mine is a red vertical stripe 1.5" wide that appears after the monitor has been in use for 10-15 minutes and is visable until turned off. Looks like pixels are red. Most visable on grey background, less lisable on white. Monitor is one month out of 36 month Dell warranty. Screen type is very expensive IPS.

I understand that it seems odd that sometimes they disappear.
I have a vertical line on one of my laptops right now that it takes about 3 seconds before it appears on the screen but once it's there. It's there.

I think it has to "warm up" before it comes back.
I used to do Technical support for a company that produced computers with 5inch wide screens, and everytime something with a line was mentioned, "Fix display cable" was the reason.
Because everytime you pushed the screen up to see the keyboard the line disappeared (because the display cable moved) But I digress.
All I'm certain of is that if you change the display cable this will be fixed.

Dell LCD 1907FP 19" have


Unfortunately this is an early indicator that the LCD display panel is starting to break down and the cost to replace the part will exceed the amount of a new monitor. I recommend using present item until it completely fails. Sometimes the video cable is the issue and should be subbed provided you can detach from both ends.

My dell lcd screen some lines vertical problem


We might be having issues with the video card or the LCD
For us to isolate where the problem is coming from
1. Tried accessing the BIOS see if the vertical lines are present
2. If there are vertical lines on BIOS definitely the problem is LCD and we to replace it
3. So if we see vertical lines inside Windows we might have issues with Video Card itself or Video Card driver
4. Try uninstalling the video driver and install a fresh copy of video driver. Else we need to replace the video card
5. Usually laptops have integrated video. So we need to replace Motherboard

Vertical lines on my lcd laptop screen


It's the connector problems.
If you know what to do, I can guide you:

First, remove the screw all over the LCD case, then you can see the connector, and flexible cables.
Second, remove the keyboard unit(by removing all screw on the unit), after removed, find the edge of the LCD cables, then you can see the connector.

The solution:
1.Try clean this two connector with soft brushes ( paint brush is good ), by removing the cable first,then clean the flexible connector using wet tissue ( use the alcohol ).

2. If still exist, you need to replace the flexible with new ones.

If you can see the vertical lines during POST, try to check the vertical lines in BIOS. If the vertical lines are there in BIOS, the only thing you can do is to replace your LCD screen.

My Dell Photo 964 All-In-One won't receive faxes, but can send them just fine. All other features are alright. Spoke to Vonage (our phone service) for 2 hours troubleshooting and sending test faxes, and it...


First check a couple of obvious things:
Sometimes the presence or absence of a (DSL) filter on the line can affect fax reception.
Also check to make sure you have not enabled Fax Blocking.

Otherwise, I can only offer some information HP provides for support of VoIP fax setups, available by clicking here., and hardware setup options available here. Whether it is even remotely useful in your situation you'll have to judge.
You know there is also a Dell Forum where users
can pose questions and exchange answers. Have you checked to see if there are solutions posted there? Dell Forum 964fax error
I'm afraid I am not familiar with that particular machine or Vonage...sorry I couldn't offer anything more...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Vertical line on copies


A vertical line on laser copiers which are the same lenght apart on each indicates a dirty or defective toner cartridge or dirty or defective rollers. Take the cartridge out and wipe the rollers with a soft cloth. If the streaks continue then the rollers inside the cartridge or damaged. You will need to replace the toner cartridge. Let me know if you have any questions. Please rate this solution with 4 diamonds.

Xps m1210 is dead and no power even with a new ac adapter


The M1210 suffers from the same die packaging problem with its Nvidia GeForce Go7400 chip as many dell laptops do. However dell does not admit this, and has only extended the warranties for recently manufactured laptops.

To get Dell to fix your laptop, despite it not being covered by the extended warranty, follow the instructions I have posted here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?p=4611553#post4611553

Dell is trying to cover up a critical flaw in what is supposed to be a high performance gaming laptop. It is my goal to make Dell come clean about this issue. Lets all let them know that they cannot get away with screwing over their customers like this.
