I had this same problem when i started. You cant plug the monitor into the normal serial port. You have to plug it into one of the graphics card ports near the bottom. The plug wont fit normally so you must use the little adapter piece that comes in the small box. Put that onto the monitor plug and insert it into the graphics card.

I have been fixing one for a customer. At first I thought that it was the typical burned out powersupply. Delta Electronics has created a replacement. The old REV 00 is 185 watts peak. The new REV01 is 185 nominal. Was the shaggy067 did not take the time to look up is that the 610 is an "All in one" modular monitor/case.
This customers is the first one that I have replace the power supply and it still does not work. I believe the flourescent backer of the LCDmoniter dosent work - 1.gif is shot. I will not know for sure until I find another one. The S-video works fine, so I am testing it using my projector. Everything works except the lcd panel.
check out http://www.32oz.com/mirror/Gateway_610/ for how to disassemble and replace the power supple. By the power supply from http://www.skyline-eng.com/ and not from the crooks on ebay1.gif. They are the only authorized rebuilders of the power supplies.

You give too little information. Is this a new monitor or new computer/video card? Obviously the monitor is OK, but it is also likely that your video card and/or settings are at fault. I would recommend trying a different monitor with the computer. After that, you should try escaping during the boot sequence (by pressing the Ctrl and F8 keys repeatedly during the bootup). This should then give you the option of booting in Safe Mode. This will allow you to then tweak the video card settings. Try a lower resolution setting. Of course this all assumes you are running Windows OS. Good Luck.

The problem is the video card on the computer its not the monitor itself. Check your video card or integrated video settings on your computer. Make sure everything is updated and running fine on your video card or integrated system.

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).

You may have failure in the power supply due to bad caps, bad inverter circuits such as shorted transistors, transformers, bad lamps. You need to open it up and make some measurement, see example of failed ACER monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

On button is orange and moniter wont come on


If the PC is on and running and the light is oragne it means your video card is bad or the cable is loose.

Power off your PC (gonna have to hold the button down on PC until it turns off) and then turn off the monitor.

Reseat cables on both ends from Monitor and PC then power back on again and see if that helps.

If it still doesn't work you have a bad video card.

Hope this helps

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.

Moniter won't turn on


SOUNDS LIKE POWER SUPPLY IS OUT OR POWER RELAY IS Bad.

Probably cheaper to replace this mointor with a new lcd which uses 50% less current.

even if you find the parts to fix it i suggest replacing this moinitor altogether electrical failure is a sure sign of other problems in the future.
