Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

Verticle blue lines, left side

\015 Not sure why this would happen all of a sudden, but one of my Dell 2001fp monitors has started showing a band of translucent blue lines on the left side. The lines are about one pixel wide, and there's a bunch of them (top to bottom, for the full monitor height) that cover a width of about 1.5 inches.I haven't disconnected or reconnected anything in over a year, and nothing seems odd about the monitor settings, which I also haven't changed. the rest of the monitor picture is fine, without any color distortion at all. I can see the desktop icons on the left side of the screen, but having that set of blue lines there is annoying.Any ideas about how to get rid of these lines, or is my monitor dead?\015

Answers :

Your Display cable (inside your monitor) needs to be replaced.

I would look on ebay to try and find the part and then take it to a local tech to replace it for you as I would not recommend anyone take apart a monitor (LCD OR CRT) if you had never done so before.

OR, Buy a new one.
Mostly the line bar problem especially from top to bottom is the driver tabs that go from the panel controller board to the panel itself.
