Question about Gateway 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Hi hope someone can help It is not def dead as the power lights come on
and it shows activity for about 5 sec and then goes off, although during boot the text is in pink and then turn it off and on again and the same happens.
It also when unplugged shows up the rgb test screen but the white is pink and goes off again.
So what do you think is it worth repairing or selling on ebay broken as it's only two months out of warrenty ang Gateway do not want to know.
It sounds like the monitor whose writing comes up in pink has a problem with the RGB usually IC driven and all of them sound like they have faulty power supply boards. Will investigate further and give a more detailed answer. Hope this helps for the time being.
