Question about Gateway FPD1530 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

When I turn on my Gateway FPD1530 Monitor, it turns on for just a couple seconds in Power Saving Mode then turns off. Will not stay on or go into full screen. I checked all the connections.

The monitor may be fixable. Your problem is likely either the power board, or the inverter board. Since you get an image for a few seconds, the problem is not likely to be the lcd panel itself or it's embedded backlight. Check with the manufacturer first to see if it's still in warranty.If not, replacing the boards will fix it, but might not be worth it in the long run. See if Gateway has these parts available, and how much it will cost. The parts shouldn't be very expensive, and it is easy to replace them. Other than the lcd panel, these boards are the only other parts in your monitor. Try the inverter board first, they are usually very inexpensive (power board not so cheap).

Your only other option is to replace the monitor......sorry. Post a comment and let me know how you make out.

Hope this helps!

If you see a message box that says "Power Saving Mode" after pressing the power button, then it simply means that the monitor/display is not detecting the computer. Check the connection/cable between the display and the computer and make sure your computer is not in standby mode by moving your mouse.
From what you stated in your problem, you dont need a inverter or a bulb. If you have any image like the message box displayed then its working fine. It just isnt seeing any signal changes on the input and therefore goes into power saving mde. Try another cable or hook it up to a different computer to check the cable.

Monitor comes on for a second then goes off. Power light stays on


You say you can still see the screen if you look close enough. The only thing that gives it more light is the backlight. It is either shorting itself out right after it comes on or the device that powers it (usually the inverter) is the culprit.

Gateway monitor FPD1975W won't display


Same problem - unplug both computer and monitor - hold power button for monitor for 15-30 seconds...then power it back on and then power on the computer. Seems from other sites there is a power issue with the monitor - this worked for me.

There are more than one inverter circuit for this model. One is prone to have poor solder connections in the transistors Q8 & Q10.
Another can be repaired by replacing 2 1uF electrolytic capacitors near the center edge of the board between the lamp sockets.

There are multiple curcuits for this model.
Quick turn off of the backlight can be caused by deteriorated solder connectiond on Q6 & Q10 on the power supply/inverter board. Resolder and reassemble. (board mfgr: BI Electronics)
