Gateway Media Center model 03dt009-01xl

I have problems with the screen blinking then blacking out. Programs are running, but I just can't see them.This happened about a year ago and the hard drive was replaced with a new one. It has been suggested to me that this may be a manufacturer's defect with this model. Is anyone familiar with this issue?

Please check your computer fan and hard drive is running fine. If yes then it is issue with display you need to change your monitor.

A spot developed in center of screen next day black lines across screen from the original spot

it sounds like you have a small crack on your screen that has gotten worse over time, these black areas are where the lcd crystals aren't active anymore, unfortunately there isn't allot you can do apart from buy a new screen or put up with the black lines.

When Window Media Center start up, i get post, then XP Splash Screen, the mouse appears with a black screen. I started recovery to recover to factory default, it seemed to work fine for a week or so, then...

You have PC problem nto monitor problem since you can see the mouse.
Try booting in safe mode (hit F8) while booting up then go to system restore and set it back to the date you remember before the problem started.
Did you installed any new software or updates before this problem started?

Gateway monitor, black screen with blinking power button

wjfarm48, Sure sounds like a power supply problem. How old is it? How many hours of use? Do you understand what a switch-mode-power-supply and an inverter supply is? If not, then here are your options. Check with Gateway to see if there is a swapout program. You box up and ship them your monitor+cash, and they return a REFURBISHED same model with new CCF tubes and inverter/SMPS. When you box up the monitor, follow this lead. "A 3 inch thick layer of breathable air shall be the only thing touching the lcd front panel" Next option is find some local TV/Monitor repair guy who can get parts and or replacement boards/CCFtubes from Gateway. Last but not least, is to repair yourself. Not Recomended.. But do a search on lcd monitor repair or Bad Capacitors In LCD Monitors or Repair of SMPS in LCD/FPD Monitors. Also check for videos on YouTUBE related to lcd monitor repair just for your own info. Here 's what you are dealing with. The light that makes your FPD bright white is generated by Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tubes (2) that require 600-1200vac at high frequency that is generated by an INVERTER which gets 12-24vdc from the SMPS. Almost the same technology is used in the new style screw-in curlie-que Compact Fluorescent light bulbs. Only they call the inverter a electronic ballast. Anyway, thats about all the info I have. Let me know how you make out in you quest to get your LCD up and running again. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ BYE for now.

Monitor displays image for second and displays black again

Your Monitor has a heat sink issue. A capacitor in the monitor is at fault and when it heats it tells the monitor to turn off the display to save the display from damage....Problem Cost to repair will supercede the cost to replace it...Wal-mart 15" monitor 119bucks --17" monitor 129...same at staples office supply (Poof) problem solved.
