Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Vertical lines on left half of screen

My 2001FP has many many multi-colored vertical lines and they appear to take exactly 1/2 of the screen (left side). The problem comes and goes but is getting more frequent. When it comes, the underlying text is increasing unreadable for about 15 seconds then the solid vertical lines are all that can be seen. Any ideas?

Thanks.

    My problem is identical. It starts with things on the left half of the screen getting fuzzy and flickery. Then a black vertical line will appear in the middle of the monitor. That vertical line will slowly advance left until the left 50% of the monitor is solid black and gray lines. It doesn't start to happen until the screen has been on for a few minutes.

The problem is the driver tabs that go from the panel controller board to the panel itself.

This is normally a fatal failure since having it repaired is extremely expensive.

MONITOR HD2200. I TURN IT ON AND THE SCREEN GOES WHITE THEN A FEW VERTICAL COLOR LINES APPEARS AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT GOES BLACK.


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this will help out in solving the problem....

I have a 2001FP Dell LCD monitor with an intermittent 2" wide gray stripe down the middle (you can see through it) that I was told was a back light failure. Is that true? If so, what is the correct...


Bad lamps will either does not light up or have pinkish color. More likely to be T-CON board, check out the connection between the T-CON board and the Logic board. If the lines are vertical lines from the top of the screen to the botom of the screen, then that will be bad T-CON board and not much you can do, new LCD panel will be needed.

Dell 2001FP vertical band issue


I'm having the same problem... there's also going to be about 5 years of dust sitting in there, so I hoping it might just be a failure of convective cooling. My first attempt to remove the bezel was unsuccessful, so I wasn't able to go in and look for any swollen capacitors or such. I have blown canned air in the sides, and it's actually doing a little better right now. Probably won't last... having a rather warm summer.

Suffering from EXACT same problem. Also Dell UltraSharp 2001FP


This is heat, and is a common problem; it affects two of mine. You can verify this by having a can of Dustoff available and catching it when it first starts. Blow in at the top of the monitor through the holes in the back in the same region as the band. The color aberration should go away.

My solution was to make a shroud from black foamcore and use a spare power supply fan to blow air into the case at the top. This has worked for my two monitors for about 18 months. You can also just buy a 12v computer cooling fan for this purpose.Should be somewhere around 75mm in size and quiet, 'cuz you'll be putting up with it if it's not.You can either get a general 12v power supply, or an adapter that fits the 12v power out at the back next to the USB input connector.

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe


Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!
