Question about Gateway FPD1530 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

3 Answers

GATEWAY LCD MONITOR FPD1530. UNIT SHUTS OFF IN ONE SECOND WHEN TURNED ON, EVEN WITH XP SOFTWARE TURNED ON. I have a Gateway FPD1530 when I turn it on it looks like it will work fine, but then goes dark. You can still see the sreen if you look close enough. I thought that the back light might be out at first, but ruled that out. I have thought about replacing the power supply circut, but not sure if it will fix the problem. I have had no luck finding any bad parts to the naked eye. I am now at a loss on what to do.

I am in the middle of troubleshooting the same problem.
I did find buldging caps If you look closely at the tops you may find the same.
This means they have failed and hydrogen gas has escaped. They are vented by design.

I dont have a solve for this, but that was some nice information as to why your display wont show. but its more technical than what you posted. theirs a problem with the power supply/backlit/inverter board where a part has a busted solder joint. i have this same problem but it looks like someone who has this part before already did the solder joint fix on it, but the area around the board looks slightly burned:/ . mine comes on and for a few seconds it will automatically kill the backlit. this has nothing to do with vga or the signals. its a hardware problem with the inverter board. the way the stuff goes is
AC
Inverter board
inverter circuit for backlit (integrated in inverter board
backlit
Supplied power for the display controller
front panel button controls
VGA cable
some other **** going into the lcd lol

im going to try to experiment with this board since its acting all retarded anyways. i noticed a place to solder a electrical 12v jack to plug in for power. im going to test the output power that the inverter board spits out and see if i can rig a jack to it and supply the power it needs, and as far as the backlit tubes go im going to see if i can rip a inverter board out of a old notebook display or out of a old scanner. if i find a possible fix or a solution ill post asap

BIOS – the Binary Operating System may be corrupted – Use of Safe Mode to boot system.

a. Try starting the computer in the safe mode. Restart the computer and see the point to which it boots up before you get the blank screen.
b. Press F8 as the computer starts to boot. (For HP and Compaq computers with VISTA, use F10, For HP Pavilions with XP or earlier version of OS, use F1). Use the arrow keys to select the safe mode and press Enter. Remember that NUM LOCK should be OFF for the arrow keys to function.
c. If Windows launches before you can choose the safe mode, restart computer and go to step a.
d. You can choose “Safe mode with command prompt” option if you know how to use MS-DOS
e. You can choose “Last known good configuration” to go back to the last known safe shutdown state.
f. If you have added any drivers or corrupted any files the last time you used the computer, the safe mode will help you get back to the state before the changes, when the computer was running smoothly.

7. BIOS – the booting software may be corrupted – Use of Recovery Console to boot system

a. If the recovery console is already installed on the system, one of the options you see while the system is initially booting up will be “Microsoft Windows Recovery Console”. If it’s not already on the system, it can also be accessed through the network during “command prompt with network” option in safe mode.
b. Recovery console can also be installed at the time of need from the CD-ROM. Go to the following link for additional info : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301645
c. Recovery console helps to Enable or disable services. If Windows informs us during boot up that a file is corrupted or missing, then we can use the Recovery console to copy files from a CD to the computer to repair the corrupted or missing information.
d. You can also recover the system by reconfiguring a service that may be preventing your computer from starting correctly. (FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, etc)
e. For a list of Recovery Console commands, search : http://www.microsoft.com/

There are more than one inverter circuit for this model. One is prone to have poor solder connections in the transistors Q8 & Q10.
Another can be repaired by replacing 2 1uF electrolytic capacitors near the center edge of the board between the lamp sockets.

There are multiple curcuits for this model.
Quick turn off of the backlight can be caused by deteriorated solder connectiond on Q6 & Q10 on the power supply/inverter board. Resolder and reassemble. (board mfgr: BI Electronics)
