FPD2185W Gateway Monitor

This monitor is over a year old. I have replaced the capacitors to fix that problem. Now I am suddenly getting gray ghosting to the right of all images and words. I subbed another monitor to prove it is a monitor problem. Since I know how to take it apart now, I would be willing to tackle the problem if I knew what it might be.

Mine sometimes had the ghosting problem. Turned out to be the cable connector. Taping the cable to the back of the monitor relieved strain on the connector and eliminated the problem. It also eliminated intermittent flickering.

Monitor works intermittently


Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.

Model 2100 FPD2185W Monitor Will not turn on or seems as if its getting power but screen flickers on and off. Seems as if its in reset mode every 3 seconds. Any help is of utmost wanted.


It's very likely a problem with some of the capacitors in the power supply area. You can search for similar fixes here on this site. I'm ordering parts now for mine. Two of the eight tall/blue capacitors in a bunch have tops that are bulging (but I'll replace all eight since they're cheap). There's a pair of two in the middle of the same board on mine with bulging tops and there are four transistors in that same area that look like they got too hot. Most people seem to be getting away with only replacing the bulged capacitors but here is my total part list from digikey.com:
785-1106-1-ND quantity 2 (the D405-marked transistors) 785-1114-1-ND quantity 2 (the D408-marked transistors) P12389-ND quantity 8 (the 470uF capacitors) P12383-ND quantity 2 (the 220uF capacitors)
The total part list is about $7.50 with another $2.50 or less shipping. It's a pain to take apart, given the small connectors inside. The fix assumes you have soldering skills.
Go with these from digikey versus Radio Shack. They're rated for 220 degrees fahrenheit versus only 85 degrees and they're about a third less cost.

Sexyone, my gateway monitor screen is black whrn I plug in the power cord and connect to my computer how do i get it to work


Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

Gateway fpd2185w capacitor fix question


to take solder off you can get some cross wire called DESOLDER this copper wire soaks up the old solder, by heating this new desolder the old solder will jump into it and clear your way. I like the Techspray #3 no-clean model 1822-5f
and its made in the USA!

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.

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 Andrew@CreativeAudio.biz
