Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television
I purchased my Gateway 2185 as open box special at Bestbuy. I have had all the same problems like the splash screen delay and would have to cycle through the inputs to get it to work, or it wouldnt come on but just tinkering with the power cord I could get it to work. Then one day it lost the video signal and wouldnt turn off at the button, uplugged it and would never come on again. Found this website, purchased the said 8 parts and still wont work, or no power or light on button. When I took it apart the parts didnt look swelled at all but what I did notice was on the input board there was 3 other cans and the center one was split at the top. I changed those out, still no power! When changing them I noticed an additional very small cap that had been crudely soldered in it along with scratches around it where it had been cleaned for the replaced part. Maybe mine had already been repaired, I dont know but Im saying all this to help find a solution to my problem
SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS (FIXED) PUT BACK IN THE BOX AND TRIED TO SHUCK IT OFF ON SOMEONE YOUR BEST BET WOULD BE SENDING IT TO GATEWAY MAYBE JUST MAYBE THEY WOULD HELP YOU EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENED
