Question about Gateway FPD 1730 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
My monitor just goes blank after about a minute, it displays initially then goes blank although the power button is still lit. If I turn the monitor off then on again it displays then goes blank. I can repeat this procedure and the symptoms repeat itself. Help!
I was thinking about your problem, I just had a similar issue and the problem is that the inverter or the power supply with an embedded inverter had gone bad.
The reason it goes black is because the inverter fails to provide power to the LCD Display.
The only way to fix this is to open up the FPD:
*note these are instructions for the most popular FPD 1730*
1.there should be four screws on the back --> plus two large screws that hold the FPD stand and the Monitor together.
2.Open the back by pulling the cover off
Remove 7 screws holding the frame and the power button for the LCD
3.Remove two screws through holding a silver cover and remove cables.(pinkwhite) (blackwhite)
Please note where they belong before removal**
4.On the edges left and right are two screws 4 total ---> remove and remove LCD off of frame**becareful because the backlight Damaging can cause severe damage to your LCD panel.
5.Choose your model
Your FPD has 3 boards (power, inverter(backlights) Logic Video)
replace the inverter with well known good one
Your FPD has 2 boards(Power with inverter on edges, Logic Video)
replace the power board with a well known good one
6.Then do steps 1-5 in reverse order(putting your FPD back together.
I hope this is significant help
