Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor looses power after 10 seconds.

When I turn on the monitor, the power light will come on, and after about 10 seconds the entire monitor shuts off.

The power light goes out, I can hit the power button again and it does not come on at all.

I know it is not the computer, have tested that and am using it now with another monitor with no issues.

Is it possible it is JUST the power cord that has gone bad or more likely something inside the monitor itself?

Re: Monitor looses power after 10 seconds.

Its better to change your monitor because if the monitor usage goes above 90% then this type of problem occurs...

How do I turn off the Samsung sync-master p2050 monitor?

If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.

1707fpt dell flashes video and green power light

i will give you some tips
1- If the power light goes from green to orange) this is almost always an issue with the computer and not the monitor
2- If the monitor power light turns off, then it is almost definitely a problem with the monitor.

there are some reasons your monitor turning on and off
01-One reason the monitor could shut off is because it is overheating.
02-If the power cord is loose and is not securely connected to the back of the monitor it will cause the monitor to turn off.
03-If the monitor is staying on, but you loose the video signal, it's very likely an issue with the video card or motherboard in the computer. This could also be an issue with the computer or video card overheating or a defect with the video card.
04-Another reason the monitor could shut off is because of a malfunction in the circuitry. There could be a short in the wiring or some other failure in the circuitry, causing the picture to go black or causing the monitor to shut off completely
05 another reason the monitor on and off is because your monitor power supply chipset is damage

hope that it will help you

My gateway monitor shows a picture for about 1 second then turns to blacked out screen with power light still on. I can shut the power off on the monitor then turn it back on only to have it do the same...

Your power settings may need to be changed, it appears to be going into sleep mode or power saving mode.

If you are using Vista, Click Start> Control Panel > Power Options > "choose when to turn off display" (in the left hand pane) and check that it says at least 10 minutes. Click apply and then ok.

Alternatively, right click on your desktop, select "personalise" and click on screen saver - then select "change power settings" to bring you to the same thing.

If you have xp, right click on your desktop and select "properties" then "screensaver| > "Power" and change it to turn off the monitor after 10 minutes. Click apply then ok.

If your monitor is going to sleep, either press a key or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

Hope that helps.

The screen stays black. The power light on the "on" button blinks on and off and flickers.

Try to unplug the monitor and totally shut down your PC. Wait 10 seconds and plug your monitor back in. Make sure the power is off on your monitor. Turn your PC on then turn your monitor on.

If you still don't get a picture and the light keeps flashing the monitor will need to go in for service. If it's no longer in warranty its best to just purchase a new monitor (will cost almost as much as a new one to fix)

Screen goes black after 2 seconds

This could be one of two problems, the light in your monitor has a loose cable, or the light is dying. I have seen cold cathode lights that are about 10-15$ to buy and many instructions on putting them in yourself.

Solution 2, your cable is loose on the back of the monitor. Make sure you have the screws tightened on either side of the vga or dvi cable, both on the back of your monitor and on the back of your computer or laptop.

This sounds as if you are using the hibernate feature in windows reboot it and reset the power options to hibernate never check the vid connection as well

I have two CTX monitors.

well by ordering the caps replaced that is a start for the first one it should work like new when you get those replaced, second monitor it could still be a cap issue but you need to look and see if they are doomed if hey are popped then they need to be replaced, one of the reasons they shut down is variance in the power supplied to the ccfl if it variances too much the unit shuts the vga and thereby the ccfl unit off.
fyi you don't need all the caps replaced just the popped ones.
