Hi

If this is still under warranty, then Gateway (MPC) can repair this. Probably you homeowners insurance will pay for it. Make sure that the monitor data cable is plugged in correctly. Whenever we have storm my wife unplugs all the cables on the computer. Sometimes when we reconnect they get plugged into an inactive port, thus no pic. If none of these help then please contact me at micromend@live.com and we can discuss a repair plan.

Thanks

I have a gateway FPD1975W monitor with a Gateway GT5482E computer. The monitor does not display the computer output - the blue power light blinks off and on steadily and every so often the monitor says...


From your description you have a power supply problem, usually caused by defective capacitors, sometimes they will bulge at the top indicating an open condition. If you decide to repair check the inverter board that powers the back lights behind the screen, because they are also prone to bad caps.

Will display for a second or two then it turns off and the power button is illuminated blue.


If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed GATEWAY and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Gateway 19 inch fpd1976w problem


Power supply will be the first place to look, look for bad caps (bulging tops or bottom seals). Check it out and post back what you find so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due tobad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
The high pitch you are hearing can be from the bad lamp soldering connection, it is arcing.

No XP driver for Hannspree New york 19 inch monitor


Hi David,

Thanks for the comment regarding what type of computer equipment that you have. The integrated video card that you are using definitely is not designed for the widescreen monitors and will not work properly with the widescreen (as you have noticed). The solutions that you can use would be to get a non-widescreen standard monitor or install a new video card that has widescreen capability.

Hope that helps,

Take care,

Michael

No display, clipping sound appear


The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor.
It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short).
Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works.
CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT.

New 19" flat screen monitor only shows analog on the screen


finwiz,
When you on your computer, does any thing appear on the screen, some text display/logo etc.?
If yes then:
  • After making power on your computer start pressing F8 till boot option menu appears.
  • Then select safe mode and if it works, then goto device manager and re-install driver for your display.
If no then:
  • Check out the connection from monitor to computer and try. If still no luck then post comment whats you did and what was the result.

Thanks
