Re: Monitor Goes Black

Every now and then I inadvertently push a button on the lower right side of the monitor that causes the display to go blank as if it has stopped receiving a signal from the computer. Unfortunately I can not recall what the settings or buttons are that are involved, but I suspect it is the top or bottom button. Each time it happens I rediscover which button it is using trial and error. Eventually I push a button several times to 'scroll' through what I *think* are display input options. The normal desktop appears with one of the options. I think the button might be the one that includes the PIP option on the menu.

Re: Monitor Goes Black

Try to start in safe mode and check if you can change some of the video settings (resolution, refresh rate, etc). Maybe one of these settings is such that the monitor cannot handle properly. To get into Safe Mode, press F8 as soon as you see the Gateway logo on the screen while booting the PC.

hi the cause is screen back light not working properly. you need to remove the back cover of the monitor to access the internal part of the monitor. then look for the connector of the cold cathode fluorescent tube back light going to the power inverter board of the back light you will noticed a dry joints which cause a loose connection that is why you hear a sound that cause of spark. you need to re soldered the connector or replaced if totally burned.

The capacitors for the power source are failing. This causes a short burst of power to get to the lamps, but then they cannot hold a charge to continuously power the lamps. You will have to replace the monitor. I suggest checking your warranty status and replacing the monitor.

No picture


You have parts on the power supply board which are going bad. You can send it to a company like mine or take it to a local repair person.
