Gateway FPD 1960-uk 19 " LCD?TFT Monitor keeps going into standby

 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.

How can i reset my gateway fpd 1930 lcd

At the bottom of the monitor, there are some buttons. Pushing the right-most button (Auto/Set) will enable the automatic configuration to happen. This will "automatically optimize the monitor's image position, clock, and phase."

No picture on my Gateway monitor My Gateway FPD 22755W TFT LCD Monitor powers up but has no picture. The blue lights on the lower righthand side come on. It makes the little banjo strum, but absolutely no...

First of all disconnect the power & unplug the video cable from the back of the CPU & Monitor. Power-on the monitor & wait 10 secs. If the Monitor is functioning correctly, a 'No Signal' message appears & sometimes keeps bouncing around like a screen saver motion. This means your monitor is OK, if no signal message is not showing then either backlight or inverter(power) input has gone KAPUT. Replacing either or both may not turn out to be a cost effective soln. However if the damage is only in the cable then simply replace it or use the HDMI port..........................Sodeep63

A flashing power light indicates a failure of the power supply, this will also cause the white screen. Here is a link to a page showing what parts need to be replaced to repair the power supply board and get your monitor back running again.

I have a gateway desktop monitor with the model number FPD 1960 TFT LCD COLOR MONITOR. The power does not come on after you switch on. When I opened and checked I discovered that power does not go into...

So you can see at least two bad caps, then you need to replace them, there should be a set of caps for the 5v power supply for the logic circuits and the set of caps for the16~18 vdc power supply for the backlights inverter circuits.

Make sure to use low ESR type caps.
Read my guide to understand how LCD monitor works.

Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide:

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.
Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

If I Come Out Of Standby, Gateway FPD 1830 flickers, then black

It's a bad back light inverter. These models are NOTORIOUS for them. It's a simple fix for a technician and not very expensive. I fixed mine about 2 years ago and it's still going strong.
You can purchase replacement inverters and if you're handy with a screwdriver you can fix it yourself.
