I have a gateway flat screen FPD2275W TFT LCD Monitor and when I eitehr reboot or turn the system off, on restarting find a flat screen. I noticed that when I restarted from that state it would cont


The most common cause of that type problem is a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board. There are 7 capacitors that filter the output voltages from the board and when they start to die the power supply board can not start correctly. When you let the unit sit for a while they can finally build up a charge and allow the board to power up the monitor. The worst they get the longer the time will take to get a picture until one day - No picture at all. The board is easy to repair, you will get need to remove and replace the bad capacitors on the board. Here is a link to information showing where the capacitors are located on the board and the values needed to replace them.

I hope this helps,

Gateway FPD1975W Monitor Vertical lines in the right side of the screen

Open the unit back up and check the cable that goes from the control board to the LCD panel and make sure it is plugged in securely. If this cable is not connected all the way it can cause lines on the display. Also while you are inside the unit check the capacitors on the power supply board. The tops should be flat, if you have any with bulging tops then you need to replace all of the ones on the power supply board. This can also cause display issues if the power supply is not putting out the correct voltages because of bad capacitors.

I have a gateway 42" plasma television model # gtw-p42m102. When I turn on the main power in the back of the tv, it will turn on, go to a blue screen with an hourglass, then it will turn off and then...


Its not a power supply issue, but an issue related to the D-board on your TV. There would be swollen/bulged capacitors on this board. To check this you'll need to remove the back panel of the TV. Check the connections to and from the D-board. Make sure the lamp connections are fine and ballast is not burnt. Also check if all cooling fans are working.
Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

2 of the (56uf, 25v) capacitors (C2 & C21) on the backlamps power supply board were weak.
Board Loaction:
Once the back is removed its the smaller board on the left side, C2 & C21 is located at the edge of the board.

When you say that you replaced "all the capacitors" what are
you referring to? There are 8 identical capacitors in the corner
of the Power Supply/Inverter board that go bad, but there are
also 3 capacitors in the corner of the Main board nearest the
connector that goes to the power supply that can also go bad.
These are associated with the part "U15" nearby, which is the
3.3 Volt voltage regulator for the main board. If these caps go
bad, this regulator can fail to operate, and you will get no display.

Monitor works on and off

After usual overheating the capacitors, the weakest spot in FPD1830 are four chip resistors located in the inverter board a bit above the middle, you can recognize them as they are bigger than others and located all four in one row. Holding by tweezers simply re-solder them to get rid of micro-cracks in the tin between pads and resistor contacts.

Trying to fix lcd Gateway Monitor.

There's a couple capacitors you need to replace. On the video board, not the power supply board. There is (3) 470uf16v on the video board. They have to be the smaller ones, you can not use the larger ones (they will not sit flush onto the board) Any questions, e-mail me at

Hp lcd monitor

The capacitors that I replaced were near the large heat sink on the power board. They were radial capacitors. Looking at them I noticed that the metal end of the capacitor was dome shaped and not flat. I figured what do I have to loose and replaced them. The voltage and size of the capacitor is usually identified on the side.
Hope this helps.
