Ulrit, If no warranty, then you too, will need to contact Dell for cash+old unit swapout for refurbished unit or repair/refurbish the power-supply printed circuit board inside unit. Haven't you been to YOUTUBE to see DIY video clips on repair of lcd monitors??? You may even find one for your model among all the videos you can find there!!! Then remember to come back to fixya and do extensive reading and follow the links you find in the PROFILES of "louie12fix" "12fixlouie" "budmrtn" "buddymc".
I hope this response helps you understand problem and guides you to a "fix" for your unit. 12fixlouie Bye for now.

Our three year ol Samsung TV has dark horizontal lines across the top of bottom of the screen. It is getting worse


Welcome to fixYa!

When you see lines like these across your LCD, it indicates a problem with your monitor's electrolytic capacitors.A faulty filter capacitor in the power supply board (SMPS board) can cause horizontal lines across your monitor screen.Horizontal screen lines are one of the most visible problems I see in LCD monitors & TV's that are 3-7 years old. It can happen as much from heat, humidity & less-than-ideal operating conditions, as it can from fluctuating current supply or manufacturing defects.

The way to repair horizontal screen lines is by removing the capacitors from the printed circuit board (PCB) and testing them with a LCR meter.

If it shows zero, there's your confirmation that the specific capacitor needs to be replaced.

now if you can replace them your welcome but i wont suggest that , cause you may break it more....!

any ways do comment if it helped you in any manner!

what you are seeing ithe horizonal sync lines, have you tried to adjust the settings on this monitor, I would try turning down the brightness, and the contrast. There should be a menu button on the monitor to adjust it.

Very horizontal faint white lines running down the screen


hi,

check if the line appears in BIOS...dont worry when i say BIOS...not sure how to check...turn the system off...restart the system and keep tapping the F2 key...you would get a Blue screen...check if the lines appear on this screen...if it appears...it could either be b'cause the display driver has gone wrong or the system might have a physical damage.....if the lines does not occur on this screen....it is a manufacturing defect...please contact the manufacturer and report the issue for solution.......

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"


Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines


It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.

Samsung SyncMaster 710N 17" LCD Monitor - Grey screen


Does this unit have an external power supply (wall wart)? If so, substitute a known good one of similar specs. If the original is 12 Volts/1.2 Amps, find a 12-15 Volt/1.2 or greater Amp. DO NOT go over the voltage more than about 15-20%. DO NOT go under the current rating less than 90% for just long enough to see if it works. Be sure the connector fits PERFECTLY!!! Some will appear to fit but will be loose. Do not under any conditions replace a DC supply with an AC one or vice-versa.
