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.

When I turn the monitor on I get a message "In


Most Dell LCDs have multiple inputs and they will go into "standby" while waiting for a signal from your PC. This happens when your PC goes into "sleep" mode or if you are sure your PC is not in "sleep" mode then usually the LCD is not in the correct input selection. Check the input selection for the appropriate input. As always, make sure the cables are securely connected. Hope this helps.

Hi,

Have you tried using the auto-adjust feature on your monitor?

If that doesn't help can you check they are both set up with the same refresh rate in your operating system?

Thanks,

Chris

Monitor turns on for about half a second, then screen shuts off


There is a power supply problem and inverter board issue, cause usually bad capacitors in the above mentioned, sometimes they bulge at the top indicating they are open, repairs can run to the point that it may be cheaper to replace the monitor.

GRAY BOX SAYS NO SIGNAL AND IT GOES ON AND OFF


Hello,

The monitor is not getting a video signal from the computer (if it is connected to a computer)


Try the following steps first:

1 Turn off power and disconnect power cables from the computer
2 Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3 Reconnect power cables and try to turn it on.

If everything remains same, the next step will be to re-seat memory modules.

Self-Test Feature Check (STFC) Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove Analog (blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually.
  4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Thanks

Dell monitor problem


Disconnect and reconnect both ends of the video cable (while the computer and monitor are both off). Also disconnect and reconnect the power cable. Is the power cable plugged into the same surge protector as the computer? And also try a different outlet on the surge protector for the monitor.
