The Gateway FPD models develop problems after a couple or more years of use. The repairs are fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverter board in the back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be 470 and 220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 25 volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heat issues and the currents they have to filter. Replacement of the capacitors usually restores operation.

    I find them on e-bay. Search by the values in mfd and volts. Replacing the capacitors requires a good regulated soldering iron of at least 60 watts, a desoldering tool such as a soldapult or similar tool found at MCM Electronics and similar suppliers. Also requires good soldering skills.

FPD1975W TFT LCD monitor my monitor blinks a blue power light and flsahis a white screen but it does not turn on ?


Hello,

A flashing power light indicates a failure of the power supply, this will also cause the white screen. Here is a link to a page showing what parts need to be replaced to repair the power supply board and get your monitor back running again.

Monitor flickers on and off and won't stay on


Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

Flickering screen


If you bought it new in this last August, don't put up with it but get it fixed under the warranty. That is what warranties are for.

FPD1975W 19" screen went out.


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. BLUE POWER BUTTON WOULD TURN ON-OFF-ON-OFF WHILE THE SCREEN FLASHED. THEN AFTER UNPLUGGING IT THE SCREEN WOULD FLICKER. THEN JUST WOULDN'T COME ON. GO ON EBAY FIND SELLER BAMMBAMMFRAN OR SEARCH FOR YOUR MONITOR. HE SELLS A PRODUCT REPAIR FOR $30(NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING). I SENT MY BOARD TO HIM. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR MONITOR APART AND SEND HIM THE INVERTER BOARD OR THE WHOLE MONITOR, ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE SHIPPING COST. HE WILL LET YOU KNOW IF IT IS FIXABLE(THE INVERTER BOARD). IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HE ONLY CHARGES IF IT IS FIXABLE. I TOOK MINE APART AND SHIPPED THE BOARD TO HIM. HE FIXED IT AND SENT IT BACK TO ME. MY MONITOR WORKS GREAT.

Thin yellow line on the right of the LCD Screen


If it's a straight line from top to bottom panel could be defective.Not much you can do as cost of panel will compare with a new monitor.
