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)

I've had my monitor for a year now and last night my screen went black. It flickered a few time before it completely turned blank. If you look closely you can see my desktop on the screen but it is almost...

pmeyers843, If in fact your LCD is only a year old, I would first contact Gateway to see if they could do some sort of swap-out with your unit whoose switch-mode-power-supply and/ or cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube power supply (called an inverter circuit) has failed prematurely. Yes, this does happen to a lot of monitors of all brands not just Gateway! But it is way more likely to happen after 36-48 months into the life of well used lcd monitors that have lots of "ON" hours use! I also suggest you pay a visit to youtube and view some videos of LCD repair to show what are some of the components that typically cause a failure similar to your's. Get back to me if you need more info. I hope that this helps to solve your BLACK SCREEN problem. I'mlouie12fix on fixya or
Good luck. Bye for now.

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Gateway FPD1975W black 19 inch LCD

most likely is the power supply in the monitor.
gateway LCD has a building power supply in the monitor. it supplies 38W to the lamp.
since there is no display, it tells me that there is no power to the monitor.
if try another monitor and it works fine. then the problem is the monitor. (dispaly lamp is good for 17 Years- according to the tech spec.) but the power supply is pushing too much power.
other vendors max power is apporximately 30W.

make sure there is nothing behind the monitor and has good air flow. Since there is no fan in the unit. it need to vent the hot air natually.

Monitor won't work

Try adjusting the video connection on the back of the monitor and kinda wiggle it from side to side to see if there's a loose connection. One other thing to check (In case it's a newer LCD) is that the video isn't switched to DVI (It should be automatic, but it can't hurt to take note of this)
