I have had My FPD 1530 monitor for about 2 years, just recently when I turn on the computer the monitor display will not work. I know that there is power to the monitor because of the green flashing light. I have checked and rechecked all the connections they are fine. I changed to a different monitor and it works fine. I then changed the cables, still with no luck. Any suggestions?
Sometimes u might think that the monitor have problem... but its not... its the vcard... try this 1, hope it works... open the casing of your cpu.."dnt be afraid ro open it as long as its unplug"... now get the card.. use a pencil eraser to clean the coper line on it.. then put it back to the cpu... turn on your computer.. and it will work... u can also do it if your computer keeps on rebooting.. u also need to clean your computer every month. sometimes the card was not recognized or read bcoz it has a mole.... hope my simple tricks work for u guys...
Had same problem and read the posts about discarding the monitor and get a new one. then I realized that may be the dvi connection on the monitor may be malfunctioning. Lucky me the monitor had the option for vga connection. So I connected the computer to the vga port of the monitor through an adaptor (dvi-vga) and voila. The monitor is back on again.

What has happened is part of your back lighting circuitry has gone out. Yes it is repairable but can cost most of what a replacement monitor will cost these days. Check that out before spending the money. If the problem is only in the back lighting circuit then expect to spend about $100 for a replacement board.
LCD monitors lifespan depends on the quality. Normal use and you should get 2-3 years of reliable service minimum. The display itself is good for about 4000 or so hours of use or more. The problems that show up are always (well 99.99% of the time) are back lighting problems like you have experienced. You should turn it off by the switch when not using it as every hour it runs the screen save is an hour of usable life. Heat is not good for it so if your computer gets the dust cleaned out to keep it cool do the monitor at the same time. Once a year at least more if you smoke use gas heat and have pets.
Tube monitors have a much longer life but you have the size weight and poorer display to go with them. If you have to go back to a tube monitor don't go back to your 14 ask around and you should be able to get a 17 or 19 crt for free. Or expect to pay no more than $10-20 for one.
dwanlesso6, Please tell me brand of monitor and if it is LCD/FPD and size 15,17 19 etc. If it is an LCD then it is possible that the DC power supply and or inverter board has failed. Here is short PS101 lesson. All electronic things (Stereo, printer, radio, computer, TV,) all require DC voltage. You get AC Voltage from outlet on wall. the two don't mix. ever!! All the above mentioned things have AC to DC power conversion circuits. They are called power supplys. Only your's and everybody's LCD monitor has two. One makes DC for the monitor logic/digital kinds of stuff, 5.0volts and also makes a
second and higher voltage ( 12v or 15v or 24v) to send to the other power supply which is called an inverter power supply. The inverter PS changes DC into a higher frequency Square Wave AC voltage to power up the Fluorescent Tubes that make your display "bright white" !! Do you own any of those new style light bulbs. You know... the ones that look like small coiled fluorescent tubes and screw into the same socket that previously held the old filiament type of light bulb. Well your dealing with the same technology in your monitor. Just for kicks, you can go to www lcd-monitor-repair. com. Don't pay any attention to the 'advertisement' !!!! just look at the pics of what is inside an LCD/FPD.
The advert just wants you to buy books on LCD/FPD repair.. The best advice I can tell you is try to locate some repair shop that specializes in FPD troubleshooting&repair. Hell, I too am waiting for this 19in GatewayFPD to die. Hope is later.. not sooner, or I'll be in same boat w/LCD/FPD for anchor. Good luck.

User "noclew1" Your problem is the back lights are not being powered. There is a signal going to your FPD because the power light remains on, but the back lights are what helps support an image from the Front Panel Display. The only way to fix this is to open it up.
If its got 3 boards inside((logic-->video, Inverter, Power)) The problem is the Inverter. Replace it. If its got 2 boards inside ((Logic-->video, Power)) The problem is the power supply. The inverter is embedded onto it.
Simply replace the part with a known good one, and you got a spanking new monitor.
As for User Guest
Your issue is nearly the same issue when it turns off on you. But the doubling effect is from the power being supplied by an old or weary power outlet to an FPD. That can be the cause. Try different locations.
Well I wish you both luck and I hope this solution can help you with the problem. Thanks Victorsinferno45
