Re: LG LM190E05 (SL)(01)

Gateway has multiple part numbers for the LCD inverter board. Part numbers V01216400103, V01216400104, and V01216400105 are for the Profile 5 and 5.5 series with a 15" monitor. Part number V01316500104 and maybe others are installed in Profile 5 and 5.5 with 17" and 19" monitors. Also the LG part number for the 19" monitor provided in Gateway literature is LM190E02-A4. There is no mention of the LM190E05 SL in the product specs I have seen. Gateway does make special purpose runs and does change components without much much notice though. The definitive source of exact information is Gateway Tech Support. It may cost you a couple of bucks to get answers, but the value added to your system with a 19" vs. 15" screen to say nothing of the viewing comfort should far outweigh the cost of accurate information. Good luck with your upgrade. Please keep me posted on whatever you try be it successful or not. I too have a Profile 5.5 with 15" and have been considering the larger screen upgrade. BillyB.

Gateway FPD1976W 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor. The "TOUR" menu and Adjustment menus keep flashing on and off, and do not respond when you press the side button to shut them off

davea47, Your monitor's internal "switchmode-power-supply" is probably having a problem. You may need to do some electrolytic filter capacitor replacement!!! Problem not new one!! You or qualified lcd monitor technician will need to open unit for inspection/evaluation of power supply board. Do some reading in the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" (me) and follow links you find there. After investigating your unit let us tech's here at fixya know what you will do to repair unit. 12fixlouie

kruwv, Use Gateway warranty first!!! Else gateway swapout+ cash for a factory refurbed unit if program exists. Did you un-plug unit from wall outlet and then reconnect power? Problem same? How old is unit? Approximate total "ON" Hours does unit have??? Do any of the buttons appear to be "stuck"?? Was unit working perfectly the "day" before? When strange things occur with CCFL backlit LCD displays I would first suspect the "switch-mode-power-supply" as area to look first.

Gateway FPD1975W black 19 inch LCD

most likely is the power supply in the monitor.
gateway LCD has a building power supply in the monitor. it supplies 38W to the lamp.
since there is no display, it tells me that there is no power to the monitor.
if try another monitor and it works fine. then the problem is the monitor. (dispaly lamp is good for 17 Years- according to the tech spec.) but the power supply is pushing too much power.
other vendors max power is apporximately 30W.

make sure there is nothing behind the monitor and has good air flow. Since there is no fan in the unit. it need to vent the hot air natually.

Gateway FPD1960 19" CD has a red tint to all oc screen when I turn it on.

Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.
