Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

DVI went bust

I have been happily using my Dell UltraSharp 2001 FP 20.1" monitor since September, 2004 when I purchased it. Recently the DVI input stopped working on me - I just get a black screen. I have tried a different video card and a different video cable and I am 99% sure that the problem is in the monitor itself. Any thoughts on repairing that? Where I could send it to be repaired? Could I fix this myself with an off-the-shelf part? Thanks!

Have you contacted Dell? I am sure the warranty is gone but they might try to help. You can take it to a T.V. shop and have them check it. Sometimes a repair cost more than a monitor though. Acer has the best monitor that I have seen. I put some to a test at Staples and Acer was the only one that could stay working at a high resolution. Strange because Acer is usually ****. Good luck. Sorry I could not give you a better answer. I hope that I put you on the right track though. Does that monitor have a VGA connection on it that you can use. Some have both. Maybe you can get an adapter for your video card. Most cards come with one.

If you add a DVI adapter to the the DVI cable going to the Dell Inspiron 580 VGA input, do you get true DVI quality? Can you use a DVI to HDMI adpater?


For the best results, you a straight DVI cable.

VGA is analog, while DVI is digital. The quality will not be as good a a regular DVI cable.

You can use a DVI to HDMI.

I use one going from my PC to TV and the quality is awesome.

This not good! the problem is in the LCD panel display, and there is no way to repair this on a practical scale, this would not be a cost effective repair, far cheaper to replace the monitor.

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.

Monitor is blank. Green power light is on steady.


Self test failed means Monitor is bad.

Check input settings, whether DVI mode is selected.

It sounds like a hardware problem ,if it still has warranty then you should return it.
It could also be a faulty vga card the only way to test would be to connect monitor to another computer.

Good Luck

Detech Input message on the screen at the starting


I have the same monitor and assume you have both analog and digital inputs. In other words, both a DVI and standard analog monitor input. I noticed on mine that there was a "factory reset" on the menu. Have you tried that? What type of video card are you connecting to? DVI? Do you have any adapters or gender changers connected to it?

Let me know.

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.

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.
