Question about Gateway FPD2485W Television
(I'm copying a guest's comment above. What Gateway told him does seem to work - although in my case, the monitor was slow to start when plugged directly into the wall, and it was immediately fixed when I plugged it back into a heavy duty power bar.)
hey, I had the same problem. Gateway told me "Plug the monitor power plug directly into a wall electrical outlet
or a different wall outlet by removing any surge suppressors." I did that and it works. It might be a certain kind of power bar they do not like. It worked for me so try that and see if that helps.

Agree with above recommendations. Unplug and move to a different outlet, or replace your power strip. The issue started happening to me after 6 months of use, and was solved by moving the plug.

I changed my power settings within the control panel to turn monitor off "NEVER", so far no problems. Only time will tell if this is a perminant fix.

Yes, I have the same problem. Of course its out of warranty and Gateway isn't really big on support once your warranty expires.
