Question about Gateway HD1900 19" Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor not powering up. Theft deterrent?

My monitor is not functioning properly. It is only turning on "When it feels like it," usually after I wait 5-6 hours with the power cord out.
It is a 19" Gateway.

I unplugged my monitor from the wall and plugged it into a new outlet. When the display turned on, Theft Deterrent mode demanded I type a number in to continue. The code was wrong and the window closed, and the monitor continued working.

The next time I shut off my computer my monitor shut down completely. There is no LED light on, even though the cord is plugged in. I unplug the monitor and wait for 5 minutes, and when I plug it in the LED flashes once and then the monitor shuts off again.

If I wait a long time, multiple hours, the monitor comes on when i plug it in. Sometimes.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Gateway LCD monitor EZTUNE theft protection problem


You need to install EZTUNE but you need to go here first:

Portrait Displays' Theft Deterrence minimizes theft or unauthorized relocation of your display. Theft Deterrence does not prevent the display from being stolen, but hinders the operation of the display once it is removed from the 'Theft Deterrence enabled' host computer.

This site is provided for you to securely store your PIN in the event you should need to retrieve it at some point in the future.

Please select from the following options.

Change your PIN. https://pinreg.portrait.com/change_p...=dtune&OEM=gwy

Forgot your PIN? https://pinreg.portrait.com/remind_p...=dtune&OEM=gwy


GatewayShield™ Security Available
Protect your hardware using the EzTune™ Anti-Theft Software and reinforced lock slots. The slots, paired with a cable lock, physically anchor your display to a secure fixture. The software keeps the monitor secure using a unique PIN code. In the event the display is removed from the PC without the code, its full functionality is disabled.

Monitor message says "Theft Disable


The theft deterrence system can be disabled temporarily by unplugging the monitor's power cord. Then it will start the counter again. (The default is 60 minutes and is set in the EzTune software.) The software locks the monitor to one computer (the one running the EzTune software). To disable the theft deterrent message, enter EzTune and click on the Extras tab. Then select the Theft Deterrence section and enter the PIN. The PIN can be saved online and then you can request it if forgotten: https://pinreg.portrait.com/index.php?OEM=gwy&PRODUCT=dtune&ULANG=enu .

The EzTune software is available here: http://oem.portrait.com/dtune/gwy/enu/upgrade.html .

The user's guide and other documentation is available here: http://support.gateway.com/s/MONITOR/7005574R/7005574Rnv.shtml .

I hope this helps.

Theft Deterrance system


If you ever have this problem but cannot get to the 'extras' button, leave the computer on that (hopefully) already has the eztune software installed, pull the power on the monitor (the cord, not just press the power button) and then plug it back it...it should unlock automatically. It ticks me off that I just got off the phone with gateway tech support and they wouldnt tell me that because my monitor is 'out of warranty'...purchased 4/8/08 and problem today 7/15/09...bums. Anyway, they offered to fix for a fee. I got it fixed.

Anti theft mode


If L90D you need a PIN number to unlock it.
Connect to your original computer and run Plug-ins - Theft deterrence to enter or reset PIN - or go to web site via software - see below

http://www.hyundaiq.com/Eng/DownLoad/MonitorDri/View.asp?page=1&SchSel=&SchStr=&idx=87&V_nm=30


>>>

Under the ‘Plug-ins’ menu is the ‘Theft Deterrence’ option – a more accurate term than the ‘Anti-Theft’ sticker on the monitor itself. Why? Well anyone can physically steal this monitor from me. There is no Bond-like lethal gadget that would bring certain death to a would be thief. Rather, the theft deterrent is a PIN-based procedure that hinders the operation of the display once it has been removed from the host computer. Briefly, you register and store a PIN to a secure web site, then set a countdown timer. If the power and display cables have been removed and the monitor has been attached to a different computer, the timer counts down. If the correct PIN is not entered using ImageTune, the monitor will enter theft mode and display a large warning message. It doesn’t prevent the monitor from being swiped, but at least there's some satisfaction in knowing the thief can’t use it.

software called ImageTune that replaces the usual on-screen display (OSD) tools, arrives on an included CD. With it, you can adjust basic monitor settings such as brightness and contrast with a mouse instead of with the small, squishy membrane buttons under the bezel.
