Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Hi. I have a Gateway 21-inch LCD Flat Panel Display (FPD2185W) R1 that just stopped displaying anything. The power light is on but I get no image, not even the NO SIGNAL message. have tried two compouters, tried VGA and DVI connections - nothing. Is there a reset sequence or do I have a major HW issue? Is it worth fixing? LCD is only 14 months old but it is out of warranty. Thanks!

Take a flassh light and shine it on the screen wile the computer is booted up if the image is there but not lit up you need an inverter if its not thabn no its most likely not worth fixing you can get a new one for under $100 with shipping that size .FYI gateway does not make any monoters what so ever they by them from lg pioneer ect if you buy directly from the maker not gateway you will get a longer warrenty

No, your lcd is shot and would be expensive to repair, u should get a new one and also use a surge protector.

I have a Gateway monitor (FPD2185W) that flashes a Gateway icon when I first turn it on. If I unplug it will display the desktop of the computer. What is the problem and is it worth fixing?


The power printed circuit board is failing by the
information that you have given, but with additional information we may find
the actual cause and a solution to it. You may email me at: Sprint6@zoominternet.net or explain
better the symptoms it is having.

I saw the fix for the blinking power light . I replaced all 8 caps on the power supply board and 2 on the input board. Now the power stays on but no image. The monitor reconises a signal from the computer...


Almost all monitors will accept a 60Hz signal at almost any resolution, however I suggest 1024 X 768 at 60Hz...then you can try higher frequencies such as 75 Hz or more after you have established that the unit is functional.

Gateway fpd2185w stopped working and will not show a screen


Check power supply capacitors for bulging top, replace them with PANASONIC FM or FC series from digikey.com
