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..

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

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

Gateway FPD1960 TFT LCD Color Computer Monitor suddenly went dead


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.

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.
