Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Graphics are "Smeared"

My Gateway 19" FPD1975W monitor is not displaying graphics properly. First it started with the icons having blurry lines beneath them and the mouse appeared to have ghosts as it moved accross the screen. If I scrolled in a window with text all the text would run together. Then the lower half of the screen became nothing buy vertical stripes of various colors. nothing could be discrened on the lower 2/3 of the screen. Anyone know what would cause that and is there any way to repair it?

If possible, try your monitor with another PC; this sounds more like a video processor problem than a monitor unless you are using it in the VGA-analog mode, then, you could have a bad video cable. The smear can be caused by improper termination and that can come from a failed ground or shield.
Generally speaking, the kind of effect you describe can't happen with a digital interface; they cause the coarse pixelation one sometimes sees on TV sets too.

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.

When i plug in my Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor, the screen stays black and the power button blinks. This goes on for hours without doing anything else. Suggestions?


If you have this connected to a computer and it happens,make sure the fault is not with the graphics card or port first. Test the monitor on another computer or laptop. Test and check the VGA cable.
If this is not the problem (ie the monitor will not work on another computer and another monitor will work on your computer), you are probebly having power capacitor problems and the monitor needs replacing.

No signal then orange light on my Gateway FPD1975W 19Inch Monitor


Hi,

If you have a add on display/graphic card in your CPU then shutdown the system, open the case and try to press the display card gently. Sometimes if the card get loose the display will not come.

If you don't have add on display then try to press the Memory gently after shutting down the PC and try the signal again.

If not resolve let me know whether any beep/sound is coming out of your CPU box?

Rate my answer please.

Thanks.

No signal on monitor


You probably have 2 monitor connections. you have a standard one, and one that is through a graphics card at the bottom of your tower. Check for that second connection and switch the plug.. that should solve it.
