Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor will not power up

I have LCD that will not turn on. I tried turning it on by removing the power cable from the back and then reconnecting it while keeping the front power on button pressed. The monitor powers up and works fine.

I have to do this every time to turn on the monitor. What is the likely cause? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

There are at least 3 models of the fpd1975w. The fpd# is the general product name.
The model # is usually located on the rear on the white part of the sticker above where it sayd fpd1975w.
Two models have interchangable parts. One doesn't.(the LE1936)
It sounds like a switch on the video control board is not activating correctly.
Since the system seems to work normally, from what you say once you fire it up, it shouldn't be a power board related problem with capacitors or transistors or the like.
Depending on the age and use on the monitor, the capacitors do eventually create problems and there is a SLIM chance that you voltage is just a bit shy to fire the power button, but it seems unlikely. Usually they cause problems lie sutting down when they are hot, or flashing on for just a little or not wanting to start up at all.

The main power supply has a problem; pulling the AC cord turns off all power allowing it to 'reset' while pressing the front panel button only sends a logic-level signal to the supply to tell it to power up.
I don't know if the supply is on a separate board or not but removiing the back panel would show you if it is. If separate, the board will have mostly larger components on it such as larger capacitors and probably a larger transfomer with a solid core of ferrite.  If you can find a part number on a label that should be the completed assembly identifier and you could check to see if Gateway will repair it or you might have to buy a replacement that you could install yourself; it isn't tough to do; generally there will be variety of plugs with no two alike so mistakes are difficult to make. If you see a part number that seems part of the printed circuit etching, that will be the bare board, not what you need.

Printer does not respond to computer


Check the type of connection - are you using a USB connection or a Wireless connection?
- If USB, turn off the printer. - remove the power cable at the back of the printer, then remove the cable to the wall outlet. Wait for 10 sec. then reconnect all cables. - turn on the printer and check if the computer detects the printer. - If not, try to remove the USB cable at the back of the printer and computer. Wait for 5sec. reconnect the cable back. Try other USB port if not detected. - If still not detected try to use another working USB cable. - If replacing the cable did not resolve the issue, try to install the driver of the printer.
- If wireless connection try to check if the printer is connected to your router. Run the Wireless Setup Wizard in the front panel of the printer. Select the name of your router. - Download the Network Diagnostic Utility on the HP.com website to check what is causing the issue. It will give you the instruction on how to resolve the problem.

All photographs come out mostly pink


Ok I have had this problem recently myself and tried all the cleaning etc and it made no difference. It appeared as if the light cyan wasnt working in the pics - so I did a reset (as found on this forum as an answer to someone elses problem!) and it has now got correct colours - but some black spots.
The reset was the one where you remove all cartridges, turn printer off, disconnect all cables, remove paper and open back panel. Keep off for 5 minutes, reconnect power cord only, turn on and leave for a few minutes, then turn it off. Connect all cables, then turn it on while keeping power button pressed on while it boots up. Reinstall cartridges.

My dell home computer is making a clicking noise and will not start


would help if you can get indicators from the system like the color of the light on its power button and if it is blinking, the system may also have 4 small lights in its front or back panel which will also give indicators of the system. Things you can try to do to start isolating the fault is to remove the power cables and the data cables from all your drivers (hard disk, dvd/cd), and remove and reconnect the front I/O panel where the power button is located, remove and reconnect the power connections to the motherboard, remove and reconnect only a 1 working memory module, then try to turn it on again. Try to determine if any indicators change and try to pinpoint the source of the noise. it is possible that this can be from the hard drive, the power suppy or the fans on the system board. if it is from the fans or the power supply, those are the components to replace. if the noise stopped, try to reconnect the hard drive first and test it, then proceed with the CD/DVD drive. If you've isolated the fault, you can then proceed to get the needed replacement.

Ive got a long continual beep and it emits orange light from the front and back of the computer how am i to fix it?


Turn the computer off.
Unplug the power cable.
Remove the video card.
Remove the RAM.
Re-insert the video-card, ensuring that it is "seated" properly.
Do NOT re-install the RAM, just yet.
Connect the power cable.
Turn the computer on.
If you get a different "beep", the lack of RAM is the problem.
If you get the same "beep", the video-card is the problem.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cable.
Re-install one stick of RAM (two if it is RAMBUS/RDRAM).
Reconnect the power-cable.
Turn the computer on.
If it beeps "normally", then the not-yet-installed RAM is the problem.
If it still "long-beeps", turn the computer off, disconnect the power-cable, and remove the RAM, and insert the "other" stick/pair of RAM.
Reconnect and start it up.

If still a problem, change the video-card.
