Gateway FPD1960 TFT LCD Color Computer Monitor suddenly went dead

I've had this monitor for about a year and a half with no problems. One day I went to check something on the computer and found the monitor completely dead, no amber light on the power button, nothing that made it seem plugged in (but it was). I've been using an old 15" monitor but I miss the larger monitor. Is there anything I can do to fix it? If it wasn't too complicated I'd like to save the expense of having it repaired. How much (approx.) would it cost to have it repaired? Would I be better off trashing it and buying a new one? I was kind of hoping there was an easy way of installing a new power source or some other simple do-it-yourself solution.

    Sorry, I can't help. I have the same exact problem. Mine went on the bum today 12/08/2008. It happened in the exact same way as you describe and in about the same time length of use. It must be something in common with all these pieces. Probably a manufacturing problem.
    I'm just going to go out and buy me a new monitor. They go for $175.00 on up.
    I'd like to buy another compatible Gateway, but I think it will go on the bum in another year and a half.

    Good Luck

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

If it is from the inside of the tv if it is its never a good sign and you should turn it off immediatly and unplug. if its just the speakers it still isnt good but it might just be a faulty cord. Take it back ASAP to where you brought it and explain your problem

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

SOURCE: Red color is completely gone out of the LCD flat screen

You can try performing a factory reset of the TV. Go into the service menu (Press, then release the INPUT button on the remote, then key in 2580). Scroll down to "Other Settings", then go to "EEPROM Init", then press enter, select YES and press enter. This will reset the TV to the factory defaults. Good luck!

Since the screen is broken, I would suggest not to even pay for best buys to come in and tell you that the price for a new screen might exceed the price of the LCD. In some cases this type of service parts might not even be available for replacement.

SOURCE: I have a 22inch LCD

I dont knowe if this is the fiix but you probably blew a fuse ,especialy if it happened during a storm or a voltage spike in the house,like something turning on at the same time. the fuse is the one going up toward the sceen nt the main fuse . check the blog area of the manufacturer and see if its been a problem with that model ,ive heard of cold solder joints causinfg such things aus lot of thosse things get put together by robots.

Monitor will not power on - faint flickering when the power cord is plugged in. Gateway FPD1960 TFT LCD Color Monitor


Hi

i recommend the following

1) if your monitor has a 3 pin kettle type lead, please replace and see if this sorts the issue, if it is hardwired then unfortunatley your monitor is faulty and will need to be replaced/repaired

Please leave feedback/vote if this has been useful

Black screen after a couple of seconds


The monitor needs to be replaced. I had an LG LCD that did this luckily it was still under warranty. Contact the maker and have your receipt handy. Otherwise buy a new monitor. Monitors tend to be replacement only

My Gateway 19" FPD1960 TFT LCD Monitor suddenly went dead.


ooooooo yeah there is .. its corrupt eeprom memory . if you find the eeprom for the micro on the main bord short pin 5 to pin 1 then plug it in and wait a few seconds and remov whatever your shorting it with . thee monitor will use default data to turn on and it will rewrite the eeprom with new data. i added a pair of wires that hang out the side of mine to do that when it needs it . about every eight months.. but first before you take it apart see if it might turn on in the service mode by pressing and holding "menu" and "power" if that works you can select the option clear NVM . which would clear the non volitle memory eeprm..

Gateway fpd1960 tft lcd monitor has blotchy color lines across screen.


You likely have a bad 'controller' board, the one that converts the analog monitor signal into Row and Column addresses to tell the screen which pixels to light up, and which color. You may have a loose connection where ribbon cables connect to the board or the LCD panel, but you'd have to take it apart to see.
Likely the monitor part would be prohibitively expensive when you add in labor costs. If I owned it, I'd take it apart a bit and check for loose things...

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.
