Question about Gateway FPD1760 Monitor
Monitor has been fine until yesterday. Today, when I turn on the monitor, it comes on for a second or two, I can see the Windows desktop clearly with Signal:Analog and then it goes black. Cycling through with the Input button on the side shows the 3 color no signal screen momentarily before going black and then returns to the desktop, going black almost immediately. I've checked the connection to the CPU and it's ok. I've swapped cables with a working monitor and this one still doesn't work. Ideas?
Alicia, Your monitor digital board is OK. The problem is with the power supply/ Inverter board(s) in back of the LCD/LPD Panel that you look at. You will need to question Gateway to see if they have a swapout program where you send them $30-$60 and your old monitor, and they will send you a refurbished (new cold cathode fluorescent tubes w/inverter board installed ) complete monitor. I'll tell you one thing though. Alicia, Don't feel bad abt this monitor of your's failing. You have joined the club with over 2000 others whose CCF tubes and INVERTER boards have with time now fail to light-up their LCD panels. Yes, there are some companys that do repair of these monitors. Try surfing under CCF tubes or FPD repair, or LCD repair. Yes Alicia, you are dealing with a technology similar to the new type of screw-in light bulbs, only the tubes are thinner and laid flat horizontally across the rear of your LCD panel with a reflecting mirror in back of them. Good luck girl in getting it repaired. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol .com North of Chicago 40 miles
