Question about Gateway FPD2485W Television
My Gateway FPD2485W will not power up. No lights, nothing. It was working fine then all of a sudden during boot up everything went off. Litterally, started to power up - Gateway logo n tune - then poof (no smoke!) it went off. Basically, its like it is not plugged in. Of course it is plugged but nothing works, buttons, etc. I tried unplugging and straight in to outlet and not AC backup power strip.
Pretty sure I need to find a replacement power supply. Any ideas where I can find one? Thanks for the help!

I'm pretty sure the inverter board is bad. you have to replace it if you can or you can let someone else do it. you should find some on ebay for about $80 (not too bad compared to the cost of the monitor: over $200). but its up to you. But first, you should find out if you are still under warranty. good luck. please rate!!

Problem with flickering is in the board that is mounted to the back of the lcd screen. Part is only available in China.
Board will either need replacing or repairing (if it is repairable? Not all are)
I repair lcd monitors on ebay and just repaired one of these boards.
