Question about Computer Monitors

1 Answer

Gateway FPD1530 loses image shortly after powering up.

Earlier, when I connected it to the running computer, the monitor gave the message ''out of frequency range.''

I shut the computer down using keyboard shortcuts while there was yet no image on the screen. As the computer shut down, the message ''It is now safe to turn your computer off'' appeared, the first image to show from the computer.

When I powered the computer back up, already connected to the monitor, monitor on, I saw the starting screens, and even my screen saver for a few seconds before it went black again.... When I turned it off and back on, the image would be there but then go away. The more times I did this, the shorter the time the image would remain. Eventually it wouldn't show any image, and again seemed to be dead.

    It was set at optimal. I set it to 60Hz and connected the FPD1530. The only images I got were a brief flicker when I powered up the computer and a brief flicker on power down. When I turned the monitor off and then back on, I would see an image very briefly, just long enough to recognize it was my desktop. Then it went black.

Try booting into safe mode. press F8 while the computer is booting. see if everything stays normal. It should tell you that it booted into safe mode. Once there, change the resolution or the frequency of the display(also known as the refresh rate) by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Once there, click the tab all the way to the right, it should give you color quality options and resolution options. At the bottom, there should be an advanced tab. Depending on our video card this menu can be different from others. Look in that new window for and option to change the refresh rate or the frequency. The value will be in xxx hertz. try setting it to 60 hertz.

If you have the appropriate cable to connect the output port of the computer to the input port of the Flat Panel TV every thing will be OK. For optimum performance you might have to install the drivers for the replacement flat panel.

If you see a message box that says "Power Saving Mode" after pressing the power button, then it simply means that the monitor/display is not detecting the computer. Check the connection/cable between the display and the computer and make sure your computer is not in standby mode by moving your mouse.
From what you stated in your problem, you dont need a inverter or a bulb. If you have any image like the message box displayed then its working fine. It just isnt seeing any signal changes on the input and therefore goes into power saving mde. Try another cable or hook it up to a different computer to check the cable.

My gateway fpd1530 comes on then goes right back off any sugjestions on repair or is it worth it?


15? not likely.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed HP monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

There are more than one inverter circuit for this model. One is prone to have poor solder connections in the transistors Q8 & Q10.
Another can be repaired by replacing 2 1uF electrolytic capacitors near the center edge of the board between the lamp sockets.
