Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor
I am pretty sure that my monitor has the same problem as others mentioned here (starts for a few seconds, then goes black). I did the "flashlight test" (thank you for that) and can see my desktop. Do you know of anyplace on the web that explains how to replace the FPD1760 inverter board with step-by-step directions? This monitor is just out of warranty and I decided to give replacing the inverter board a shot before I give up on it. thank you
ALL the electrolytic capacitors on the power supply/inverter board have to be replaced. Including the 47uf cap.
Mine works like a dream now. :-)

I did some poking around and only found a few places that sold inverter boards for this monitor. Ebay has one that sells for about $80: http://cgi.ebay.com/Backlight-Inverter-for-Gateway-FPD1930-LCD-Monitor_W0QQitemZ160070918225QQcategoryZ174QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWINQ3aPOST0Q3aRECOQ3aBINQQcmdZViewItem I wasn't able to find any specific instructions posted, however, taking a typical LCD panel apart and replacing the board shouldn't be too difficult. The only hard part is not getting shocked, which is why this is not a job for the typical user. Anyway to disassemble the typical LCD you remove the pedestal from the back of the LCD then remove the screws around the back of the LCD, remove the back and look for the inverter board. Typically it is covered with a metal shield; again the hard part is knowing how to correctly handle the parts. Considering you can buy a new 17" LCD for $120 to $150 (and has a 1 year warranty) you might want to consider investing in a new monitor instead. If you have any other questions let us know, otherwise please don?t forget to rate this posting.
