Sounds like you've replaced everything but the backlight itself!
If you have another working unit, connect this LCD panel to the working unit and see if it works. If it's still dark, you need to replace the FL tube (backlight(s) ).

I have a gateway m285-e tablet pc. I turned my computer off then 2 days later when I turned it on it appears to have a dead screen. I tried connecting an external monitor and switching to it via FN+F4...


Yup that is the Screen's back light inverter or CCFL(the actual light).
Here is sites which well the inverter for your model: (this is the cheapest I found in a short time but keep looking)

Here is a video that might help ya:
Just pay attention to the dismantling not the screen replacing, once you open up the screen its pretty self explanatory how to replace it.
If you have anymore questions comment or send me a msg.

Hope this help, If it does then please, remember to leave Feedback/Testimonials.

I have a Gateway laptop. I replaced the screen because it broke, everything was fine with the new one then the screen went white then I replaced it again with onother one when I put the new one the screen...


In that case i believe the inverter will need to be repalced or the very least the cabling from the screen to the inverter checked

The inverter board is a little circuit board responsbile for bumping up the power from 12V to 240V to light up the screen, if this is faulty one of 2 things can happen the screen can become very dim or the opposite it can become very bright

The boards are readily and cheaply available from places like EBAY, and if you can replace the screen you can replace the inverter

Please ensure the there is no power going top the laptop and the battery has been taken out

Coil Part Number for Gateway MT3707 Inverter Board


Hi

Thnak you for your query

You will have to replace the WHOLE inverter board, not just part of it

The inverter is responsible for taking 12V supply and converting the power to a higher volatage to allow the screen to light up

I would suggest that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop to complete the repair

Replacing laptop monitor. The new monitor


If it was not the right kind of LCD it may have blown the inverter (where the LCD connects and the cable going to the motherboard). You should order parts only from an authorized Gateway part reseller as advertised on the Gateway website. I have included a link to one such place below, where you can purchase a new inverter board and LCD screen if needed.

Gateway inverter board replacment


Hi,
The inverter board is the circuit board inside the screen, with all the capacitators etc that controls the backlight. It looks like this:

You can just google 'changing inverter board gateway' and see if you can find the closest guide to your model..

The most prevalent failure on these boards are the transformers and or the ic that controls the frequency of the lamp drive. More times than not you will find a bad transformer.

Replacing Inverter Board


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.
