Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35Vcap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap gobad? The cap is too close to a heatsink and over heated.

What does this capdo? This cap sends a signal to an ICwhich keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage isapplied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor:These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apartwith a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screwdriver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screwdriver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuitboard.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and removethe screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board andremove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle ofthe board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will beon the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burnmarks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + ofthe cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from theheat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.

Restart the PC and get into SAFE MODE. Hit and release F8 many times right after turning on PC. If it works, then go into your video setting and either change the settings or remove the video driver. Restart the PC and you'll get 800X600 screen, then reinstall the video drivers. IF it won't go above 800X600, screen internals are bad, LCD toasted. I've seen that happen with LCDs and older monitors.

My Gateway 19" FPD1960 TFT LCD Monitor suddenly went dead.


ooooooo yeah there is .. its corrupt eeprom memory . if you find the eeprom for the micro on the main bord short pin 5 to pin 1 then plug it in and wait a few seconds and remov whatever your shorting it with . thee monitor will use default data to turn on and it will rewrite the eeprom with new data. i added a pair of wires that hang out the side of mine to do that when it needs it . about every eight months.. but first before you take it apart see if it might turn on in the service mode by pressing and holding "menu" and "power" if that works you can select the option clear NVM . which would clear the non volitle memory eeprm..
