Question about Gateway HD2201 22" LCD Monitor
A pet sprayed my monitor. Liquid got behind the display and dried up. I'd like to try and clean it if I can...even if it means ruining the monitor. I have to try...I'd like to use it again without the black blob spreading .

Is this a Gateway FPD1960 monitor? If so the power supply inside of it died. It is a common problem with these. I repair the Gateway FPD1960 monitor so if you want to trash it let me know. You can contact me at sure-power(at)nc.rr.com

I picked up a FPD1730 monitor for free which was just sitting out in my apartment hallway. I suspected something was wrong and sure e**ugh there was ** backlight, but I could see faint video when I shined a flashlight on it.
A quick Google search of the inverter model # led me to a German forum which suggested replacing the fuse labeled "F1" on the inverter board. I don't have a matching fuse on hand but I bridged the connection with a wire and sure e**ugh the backlight came back on. Short-circuiting like this is definitely **t 100% safe but if you can find a 4A fuse then it's a really cheap and quick fix.

Ok, I just got one last night, and it took a while to open the bugger. Why put screws when there are so many hidden clips to carefully pop? My poor Craftsman club card will never be the same! But, I digest...
There were two bad capacitors, the first and probably the main culprit was a 1000uF 25volt cap that had expanded and vented. I also found a 680uF 25volt cap that started to expand, and when tested it was low, about 550uF.
If you are so inclined, these can be obtained by mailorder (I use Parts Express), but Radio Shack parts can be used in a pinch, just expect to go back in there eventually. I didn't have the 105 degree low ESR caps, so I used regular ones and I had the monitor up and running in aobut 90 mins.
Check for any capacitors that are expanded at the top. Look for a dome shape or feel with your finger, it should be completely flat. Or look for the rubber bottom pushing out where it goes into the board. This is the third monitor I have repaired in the last six months, and each one needed one or two capacitors to fix a dark back-light problem.

The problem with the monitor is the power inverter board. I took my monitor apart and tested all the power outputs. The ones going to the main board where ok but the ones going to the backlight where different. I changed the three capacitors on the power board that where located between the two heat sinks I think it was the 1000uf and the two 470uf. They looked ok but when i tested them they where off. Next on the opposite side of the board with all the little componites there are a few dry joins that you have to resolder. If you cant find then you can just resolder the whole back board it should only take 30min. If you have no idea what i am talking about i would not sugest taking the monitor apart.

it looks like the video driver needs to be chcked. can you try to go to the bios of your omputer by pressing f2 on boot and let it stay there for 5 minutes? if it still goes to a black screen, its either your video card or lcd thats having a problem. but if it doesnt goes to a black screen in bios, its just the video driver. go then to safe mode by pressing f8 on boot. then uninstall and reinstall the video driver. or run system restore. restore it back to a working date thts by clicking start, then click all programs, go to accessories, go to system tools, click system restore, choose an earlier date and hit next, follow the prompts,wait for the computer to restart and that should work!
