Have you installed the drivers for the monitor? Do you have any light in(not on) the monitor. Have you adjusted the brightness and contrast? Unplug the video cable. Turn the monitor on. Do you have a menu? If not, it may be time to recycle this monitor.

No fuses, your inverter board is probably bad.

SOURCE: my gateway fpd1975w tft lcd monitor does not work.

Restart the PC and get into SAFE MODE. Hit and release F8 many times right after turning on PC. If it works, then go into your video setting and either change the settings or remove the video driver. Restart the PC and you'll get 800X600 screen, then reinstall the video drivers. IF it won't go above 800X600, screen internals are bad, LCD toasted. I've seen that happen with LCDs and older monitors.

Have you unplugged the power cord for 2 min. Try that, there are problems with these "locking" and unplugging sort of "reboots" them.

Check that the cable is good. The gateway logo is part of the initial set up being generated by the monitor itself. That showing has no bearing on the external signal.

Gateway monitor issues, "FDP2275W TFT


This model is know for having bad caps problem as shown in my pictures here:

That will be the first place to inspect, you MUST be real carefull when opening up this monitor since you can easily damage the ribbon cable attached to the front bezel.

I have a Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor and the power button is blinking blue. The computer is on but no picture. Need assistance


Hello, it may not be the monitor. It could be that the pc is not talking to it. To check this try another monitor. If it doesnt work on that one,its the computer thats faulty, usually the video card. If however it does work, you have a faulty monitor. They can be fixed or replaced. Or you could try your monitor on another pc, either way you will find out for sure. I hope I have helped.

Gateway monitor FPD2275W TFT LCD powers on, gateway logo goes on fine with brightness then monitor brightness drops so you can barely see it. Not sure if this is a problem with the brightness setting or...


The back lamps that provide the illumination of the
colors, is shutting down there are feedback circuits when there is a problem
with the lamps it will shut down the lamps. Replacing the lamps should alleviate
this problem. For more information on this email me at Sprint6@zoominternet.net

I have a gateway FPD2485W tft lcd monitor and i start my monitor and after it shows gateway it then goes black. How can this be fixed


bonannorl, Maybe it can be fixed. You did not give any history of unit. Only "now" stuff. Is unit covered by Gateway warranty? How old is unit? Date of manufacture? Did unit work fine connected to your pc and this black or black n blank screen thing suddenly happen? Is screen also BLANK? Have you swapped-in old monitor to prove PC is OK? Your CCFL back-lit lcd monitor no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation. Get into my fixya profile and read some of my testimonials and solutions to black or black n blank screen problems to help in your decision to DIY fix or contract out needed repair work. Most likely 2485w has problem with it's internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl inverter supply"!! Let me know more info about unit.

Gateway Monitor goes blank after a few seconds after startup.


Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.

Here is a website explaining this kind of failure:

No picture on my Gateway monitor


If you get power to the controls and you don’t have the startup sound or see the gateway logo when you plug it in, the main board may be bad.
If your picture was pinkish or dark at the top or bottom when it was working then you may have 1 or more of the bulbs failing.
If you have the startup sound and see the gateway logo and the screen just flashes and the power buttons stay lit, then it sounds like probably the inverter may have went.

Take the screws out of the bottom rear edge (these hold the front trim), and the 4 big black ones at the middle of the back that hold the stand bracket.
The trim then unsnaps. {Be aware of the small ribbon to the power button board on the right edge}Start at the bottom and release the trim (pulling up the trim on the screen side usually starts it off), then work your way up each side bottom to top ((a pocket knife or thin putty knife even a credit card, will help release the catches as you work your way up)
Then unsnap the top edge (rocking it while lifting helps)
Disconnect the ribbon at the power button board, (Tiny latch lifts up on a hinge and ribbon slides out)
Once trim is off, remove the 4 corner screws that hold the screen in. Then the screen will lift out with all the guts. You may have to pry up on a corner with a screw driver to get it started.
The inverter is under the medium size metal case.
The power board and main board are under the large cover.
You’ll then have to remove a bunch of screws including the usb board ones and unplug the bulbs and wire to the screen
then the power board and control board is under the center area under the metal cover
Shout if you need more info.
If you email me a good picture of the boards to bammbamm@ptd.net , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a visual.
Thanks Fran
