Question about Dynex 19 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

1 Answer

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

I've had thid computer 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 power button light, nothing that made it seem plugged in (but it was). I've since been using my old 15" monitor but I miss the larger one. Is there anything I can do to fix it? I've been on websites that have forums with people complaining about bad Gateway monitors. They say Gateway ignores their complaints. Some have said that the problem is blown capacitors and that when they replaced them everything worked fine. I'm not very handy (soldering is probably out for me) so how much would a repair like this run me? Would I be better off trash canning this monitor and buying a new one? You can be sure it won't be a Gateway. If there's an easy solution I'd like to hear it. Any help would be greatly appreciated (for example, are there any reliable, low cost monitors?).

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..

My samsung tv overheated and half if it went black


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Does anyone know if I can use a Goodmans TFT LCD TV, Model: GTVL19W19HD as a computer monitor? It has a VGA socket on the back, but when I connected a computer It wouldn't show.


Yes,

You will need to select the VGA or PC input on the TV and then boot the PC up with the monitor attached so the video card will see it correctly.

Monitor works intermittently


Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.

I would like a copy of the service/repair manual for my LG Flatron E2360V-PN computer monitor. I was trying to see if there was any way to rig it up to be wall mountable. if not, i'd still like to...


Hi Nick,

I've checked my collection of service manual but I haven't a copy yet of this model no. I have only a direct link where you can buy and download it, click here.
This model no. does not have a VESA mount on the back, it means that there's no wall mount bracket option. However, you may try to contact the links below to inquire if they have a universal wall mount bracket for non-VESA PC monitor.

Gateway XHD3000 Monitor


I may be able to fix it for you
I believe the problem is in the same board that causing the strobing screen problem.
Cost is 150 to repair the problem board if it isfixable. No charge if not fixable.
You will have to pay round trip shipping for the monitor and power supply to Pennsylvania.

No signal from computer to monitor 8/13/08!


I had the exact same problem!! Drove me crazy for days. Couldn't find any answers online, contacted Gateway tech support and they told me my warranty was expired but they'd be happy to discuss my issue for $2 per minute. Gateway can **** it!!

At first I thought the problem might be a malfunctioning NVIDIA card, a problem with my DVI cable, or the monitor itself. But, after turning off the computer, unplugging the DVI cable, replugging the DVI cable and restarting the computer, I noticed I could get the firmware flash screen to show, including the BIOS menu boot and the Gateway system reinstall screen to show. As soon as the Windows flash logo would display, however, the monitor would drop out and display the dreaded "No Signal" error.
This indicated the problem was a software one and not hardware! The cable, monitor and video card were all working fine. Then I remembered that Windows installed its automatic update a few days prior. In fact...

THE PROBLEM TURNED OUT TO BE A WINDOWS UPDATE INSTALLED A FEW DAYS PRIOR.

After succesfully booting into safe mode (F8 during the flash/bootup screens), I went to Add or Remove programs in the control panel, clicked on the "Show Updates" box on the top, and uninstalled the Windows update from a few days prior to the occurance of the error. After a reboot the problem was solved.

I hope this will help anybody else struggling with this error!

Akai PT5598HDX/SMS won't turn on


Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.
