Question about Gateway FPD1810 18.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Have tried wall-mart

I looked at Wall-Mart for the universal power supply. Yes It is external but what they told me was that I had to get it from Gateway or buy it online. I have tried every extra 12 volt that I can get my hands on but can't find the right one that will fit apperantly it's something that I am just stuck until I get the one that came with the original moniter or find one that will plug in. The moniter has the cord that hooks into the back of the tower it's a long skinny blue one, but the power cord hooks in on the back of the moniter. Thanks for trying to help me. Sorry if I sound like a toatl idiot it's my first time on here and I am still learning how this site works

Well now if you go asking shop folk for this -they wont use their imagination, just in case they get it wrong and you sue. Just be sure that the voltage you need is - what it is - 12V did you say Then go the the electrical isles small items and you will see usually in a bubble pack on the rack a power supply- with a strip of various connectors. The power supply will have a slider switch to select vorltages from 1.5-3-4.5-6-7.5-9-12 volts. These will also have a coloured patch. The connectors are also coloured on the tip. Pick the connector colour that matched the voltage colour- plug in into the cord and lug it into the monitor . And it does not work Huh! Then unplug the connector from the cord and turn it around plug it in- then it it will work.

    Well we tried - but I reckon there is a non specific answer out there.
    I don't think gear i nour two countries is that different.
    OK you have 120 volt mains and we have 240 volt over here but low voltage stuff is much the same.

    A possible final solution.
    Having established that a common universal power supply has the oomph to run the monitor
    [Remember check the monitor spec plate for volts/amps required]- and matched it to a suitable power supply.
    You are then left with the plug/socket problem
    This picture illustrates what I propose.

You should be able to. Just take a look at the end that can plug into the device. Normally these will be universal cables which you can find at many locations such as Best Buy and Wal-Mart. Should be only about $20 or so.

Heater blower stopped running. does the heater fuse/circuit breaker affect this?

yes most likely the problem, however i had the fan motor
go, and the fan switch go. start with the fuse then, motor. you can test motor by supplying power straight
after you unhook it using a 12v battery. You best bet is
to buy a manual at a local wall mart or canadian tire for
about 29.95 which will let you repair just about anything.
