How to open gateway FPD 1765 LCD CASE OR BACK COVER

At Last! Okay this is how you open a Gateway FPD 1765 monitor. This Monitor open from the front first to reveal 4 screw under the black trim. Lay the screen face up, NOT FACE Down. So that the GATEWAY LOGO is looking at you. Carefully, lift up the black plastic trim slide a knife or slim tool, or your fingers will do,lifting the trim up a off. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK THE POWER BUTTON WIRES, near the power on button. Then remove the 4 screw holding the back cover on. When you remove these screw the monitor is free, but careful there are 2 set of thin short wires that need to be un plug. You should be able to go for there.

My screen goes black after a few seconds

Sounds like a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board. Once it heats up then it no longer makes good contact and the monitor goes black until it cools down and makes contact again. You could resolder it if you knew where it was but monitors are dangerous to go playing around with as they can hold very high charges of electricity in their capacitors that are very dangerous. It's a throw away world. Go buy a new one.

Monitor goes blank

I was thinking about your problem, I just had a similar issue and the problem is that the inverter or the power supply with an embedded inverter had gone bad.

The reason it goes black is because the inverter fails to provide power to the LCD Display.

The only way to fix this is to open up the FPD:

*note these are instructions for the most popular FPD 1730*

1.there should be four screws on the back --> plus two large screws that hold the FPD stand and the Monitor together.

2.Open the back by pulling the cover off
Remove 7 screws holding the frame and the power button for the LCD

3.Remove two screws through holding a silver cover and remove cables.(pinkwhite) (blackwhite)
Please note where they belong before removal**

4.On the edges left and right are two screws 4 total ---> remove and remove LCD off of frame**becareful because the backlight Damaging can cause severe damage to your LCD panel.

5.Choose your model
Your FPD has 3 boards (power, inverter(backlights) Logic Video)
replace the inverter with well known good one

Your FPD has 2 boards(Power with inverter on edges, Logic Video)
replace the power board with a well known good one

6.Then do steps 1-5 in reverse order(putting your FPD back together.

I hope this is significant help

Dark screen of Gateway FPD 1520

If you can see the screen display an image upon close scrutiny, it could be that the florescent back light is burned out.

Screen going black, green LED staying on

Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)

Try using it on a different computer, it's possible that it is your graphics card causing the problem. Check for bent pins.
