Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor
I must say thanx to Bogdan, his suggestion really did helped to fix my Dell :D
Only, the hard part was the opening of the case, it has no screws saide the middle behind the holder, but just hidden plastic border pins like on average cheap plastic remote control. After that, and removing few tin shells, second plastic connector ribbon from 10 of them needed a little press by nail and this is it! Thanx again :) I must point out that 2 local dell services said that lcd is unrepairable?!?! But shure, they did not bother to even open the case, or else, I would see the opening marks on plastic.

Hello DaneCooksy, This is most probably a problem with the connector that links the LCD pannel to the display's mainboard. A faulty electric connection at even one single pin can result in pretty spectacular problems.This can occur if the monitor receives mechanical shoks or even just like out of nowhere if the copper contacts become oxidised. This is NOT a dead pixel related problem because the pixel form a matrix made out of 3 transistors for each pixel. If transistors fail in large numbers they will damage a sub-matrix but this will result in a big "+" on your screen not a line. Also it woun't be pink because a "dead" pixel display's only one basic color, eather red,green or blue (RGB) and pink isn't one of them. So, in your case this could be a simple problem with that connector. However please go to a service center to have it diagnosticated. It could also be a graphic data buffer failure on the display's mainboard. My guess is however that your lcd has a minor problem and the repair woun't be expensive. If you need more assistance please reply back.
