This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's most likely the problem. You can confirm that it's actually the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is, and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

All button even the power off on button has the same auto function


I suggest you to factory reset the monitor the detail instruction on how to perform the factory reset would be avaialable in the user manual provided along with the Monitor at the time of purchse. If the problem still presist then most probably its a hardware issue in this case un-screw the front panel and try cleaning it with iso-propyl alcohal or you can take it to a hardware shop.

We have a Gateway FPD1730 monitor, P/NO 7004665. Manufactured in January 2004. Apparently the spring behind the power button has slipped or broken as the button has dropped back in the hole and cannot be...


THe push button (the button is used to push the switch shaft) is held in place with a plastic finger, it is broken off right now, that is why it dropped back in hole. This is how most of the front panel push buttons are made on most monitors, very cheaply made and design. If the finger is broken in the middle, some time I can fix it by using Silicone RTV to glue it down because the Silicone is flexible. You can try that out.

I suspect the on-board battery because I did some minor maintenance and when I re-booted the computer the time and date were at January 1, 2004 at 12:00 a.m. I have the SG-80


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

If your system BIOS time keeps on going back to Jan. 1, 2004 without you changing it. There is a 95% chance that you have a bad battery. All you need to do is to replace it. If replacing it doesn't help, try checking the battery terminal if they are still good. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Please tell me, how to disassemble it.


Please do not Open a Monitor, If the issue Exists with the Display Try with another Monitor ... If the same issue exist on more than one Monitor, then Troubleshoot your computer to fix it.
If the second Monitor does great then Service/Replace the monitor.
Opening the Monitor could Void the warranty if you have one upon it.
