Question about Gateway FPD1960 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Monitor goes black intermittently, power is on, does same thing on 2 other cpus, used different cable, same result sometimes and hr or 2 no issues can always power down monitor and power up immediatly and it works for a few mins or a few hrs... no time table but same result eventually, on average about 8 to 10 per hr. any help?
I have the same problem and it is DEFINITELY the inverter.
I tore apart the PSU and seen most of the SAMXON Capacitors bulging or have popped the bottom cap.
This could be an easy (and cheap) fix. Just head to your local electronics store with the inverter board and ask for them.
Some, with a few bucks, will replace the capacitors for you. Make sure they use Rubycon (or some well known) capacitors.

Your inverter is dying. It produces ~2k volts for the ccfl (cold cathode fluorescent lights) that surround your display. At a few milliamps. Probably bad or leaking capacitors on the inverter or power supply board. So it is either using too much power (bad ccfl) or a weakening power supply (higher likely).
It could be cold solder connections becoming intermittent. Remove the base, remove the screws on the backside, and split the case CAREFULLY. Inspect the power supply and inverter for obvious failure or leaking capacitors. Replace same... If your lucky, it will work.
