Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor

Screen goes black and power light goes out after a few minutes

I have had this monitor for about 14 months now, no problems until now.

For some reason it just seems to turn itself off, the screen goes black and the power light goes out. The only thing to make it come back on is to unplug it for a while then plug it back in again, and then it will only stay on for a few minutes at most.

Screen goes black, power light goes out (not yellow but out completely), any thoughts?

It would seem that one of the internal components has failed / overheated Dont open the rear of the monitor !

if pos drop it into your nearest pc repair shop and have is serviced it may just need cleaned to free it from dust build up
on the inner parts this may be causing the unit to over heat

Why does screen go black after a few seconds

Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

Here are a few possible problems with your monitor
1, Backlight gone bad
2. Power Supply gone bad
3. Wrong display resolution
Given that your monitor is only 14 months old, I would lean toward
either a bad capacitor in the power supply or the screen resolution
needs to be changed (boot up in safe mode and change the resolution)
The power supply problem would require some dis-assembly and working with high voltage.Not for the faint of heart..

No screen after 5 minutes


The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few minutes and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

I would advice you replace the picture board on the monitor, this should cost you between $65 - $85.

Take care.

Multisync LCD 1700V turns on then screen goes blank and shuts off

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.

HP Pavilion f1703 screen goes suddenly black

After reading a number of posts regarding this problem, I disconnected the speaker from the screen electric outlet meant for this purpose, thinking it may have been pulling a bit too much amperage to the detriment of the screen. I am going to hook a small transformer to feed the speakers directly thereby bypassing the electric feed from the screen itself. Hope it continues to work. I will let you know if it doesn't.

Black screen, blinking power light, no signal

It's seems you got a defective DVI card. Try using a VGA cable instead. Have nice day!

LCD screen goes black repeatedly

Have you checked the light on your power supply? My monitor will go black and I noticed the light on my AC power supply was off. It was very hot so I unplugged it and let it cool down. When I plugged it back in my monitor worked fine until the power supply started to over heat again.
