Re: gateway fpd1530 15in flat
There are more than one inverter circuit for this model. One is prone to have poor solder connections in the transistors Q8 & Q10.
Another can be repaired by replacing 2 1uF electrolytic capacitors near the center edge of the board between the lamp sockets.

if the power indicator at the front panel stay lit but no screen display or black screen, it could be a sign of bad power inverter board or screen back light. now to ensure if it was the cause you can do a voltage checking, at this time you will need a digital tester. you need to know if their is a bl_on voltage at the power inverter board around 3-4.4v to turn on the inverter board that supply the back light.if the power inverter board has 12v dc and has bL_ON voltage then the cause will be a bad inverter board. you must check also for a dry joint connector going to back light.
try with restarting computer & press F8 at the same time. u will see
a menu where choose "safe mode" & start the computer. in safe mode
see the display properties, set the refresh rate & resolution
according to monitors specifications, apply & restart again. if that
does not work, replace the main board of lcd monitor.
tgordon60, If you know how those NEW "CURLIE-Q" energy efficient CFL light bulbs produce WHITE LIGHT, then you will know what makes an LCD display panel produce all the pretty colors and the WHITE BACKGROUND of the FIXYA web page!!! Only difference is that your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" are thinner and straight, and hung on rear of LCD glass panel and have a DC to AC electronic ballast called an "INVERTER" circuit to produce 600 to 1000vac to light them up. Get to my FIXYA profile and read my responses to other BLACK screen lcd owners to learn about all your options for repair. Follow any of the links to other web pages you find there. Your monitor not any different than ACER, DELL, VIEWSONIC, BENQ, SONY, AOC!!!!! 12fixlouie aka louie12fix
Sounds as if your monitor is not receiving a signal from your video card. In all likelihood, the video card came unseated during the move. Open the case and re-seat the video card, that should do the trick.
t certainly seems like the monitor is not getting a signal. Did this
happen after you changed something, or just on normal boot up? It could be the video card that has failed. Also, check the pins on the connector; sometimes they can get pushed in. If you can, try swapping out the video card or use the monitor on another computer. Good luck,
The inverter is faulty.If your Monitor is powered by a mains'kettle' type lead,then it MAY be repairable,provided you can find someone to do it.If you have an external power supply,then the chances are you have a separate inverter,and it is doubtful whetther you can find the fault or a replacement circuit board....which is why we have become a throw away nation !!
Elbtax, Click start > right click on "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > Display adapters > Right click on your device and select uninstall and re boot your computer. Windows should pick up your adapter and re configure it automatically. This method should Fixya! Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
