SOURCE: Gateway Monitor goes blank after a few seconds after startup.

Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.

Here is a website explaining this kind of failure:

SOURCE: Just recently and not everyday my monitor will go

It may have unstable power supply due to bad caps as shown in my pictures here:

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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 GATEWAY monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/

The back lamps that provide the illumination of the
colors, is shutting down there are feedback circuits when there is a problem
with the lamps it will shut down the lamps. Replacing the lamps should alleviate
this problem. For more information on this email me at Sprint6@zoominternet.net

My monitor will not come on. the powere botton is flashing blue


Which model 900w or LE1936 ?
This info is usually on a sticker to the side of the stand.
If the 900w: You problem is probably that the capacitors on the power board have gone bad and need replacing. May also have transistor problems.
You would have to open it up to get a better idea.
I can probably tell from a picture.
If it is the LE1936: then it could be a similar capacitor problem, but it is rarer on this model than the 900w
Also on this model, there is a voltage regulator on the vga-dvi board that tends to go bad.

Fpd1975w display flashes on and off


what resolution are you setting your screen to? if you are setting it too high or to a resolution/frequency that your monitor doesn't support, it will do this. Try setting it to 800 x 600 w/ 32 bit color and a frequency of 60Hz. If you do this and the monitor still blinks, you may just have a bad DVI cable.

Gateway monitor FPD1975W won't display


Same problem - unplug both computer and monitor - hold power button for monitor for 15-30 seconds...then power it back on and then power on the computer. Seems from other sites there is a power issue with the monitor - this worked for me.

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 calibration


In the menu, goto colour temp settings and adjust as needed.
The last item (from memory here) is an option to reset the monitor back to factory defaults, you could try that also.
Hope that solves your issue.
