FPD2185W Gateway monitor

I contacted the BBB as you suggested (i go there often to check companies out but never complain) and within a couple of days gateway calls me and says they'll extend my warranty and fix the monitor if I am willing to pay for shipment to them ($30). They received it on 22 Oct 08 so i'm still waiting for my monitor to come back so I can fix it if they don't. Wish me luck! Btw, thanks for the direct link to LA BBB!

If you are having the VGA box show on your FPD2185W Gateway LCD monitor when starting or coming up after a screen saver. Unplug the power supply by the LCD, wait 3 min. and plug it in.
That should stop it from doing that for a few months.

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.

Everything has power to it. . It just wont send the signal even though its all connected and running? Ive had it all running a couple days ago.


Common problem with this monitor, they use cheaply made caps, they fail after a couple years, ALL brands have this problem, built to fail: see the example here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Gateway%20FPD2185/
Replace those caps with PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Gateway monitor fpd2185w goes to sleep and then shuts off


I suggest to mess around with the monitor buttons and see if you can disable it from sleeping from there. If not then try enabling it to sleep on your computer settings. A good restart after any changes is always helpful.

Trying to fix lcd Gateway Monitor.


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
