Question about Gateway 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I've had my monitor for a year now and last night my screen went black. It flickered a few time before it completely turned blank. If you look closely you can see my desktop on the screen but it is almost black. Any suggestions?

Pmeyers843, If in fact your LCD is only a year old, I would first contact Gateway to see if they could do some sort of swap-out with your unit whoose switch-mode-power-supply and/ or cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube power supply (called an inverter circuit) has failed prematurely. Yes, this does happen to a lot of monitors of all brands not just Gateway! But it is way more likely to happen after 36-48 months into the life of well used lcd monitors that have lots of "ON" hours use! I also suggest you pay a visit to youtube and view some videos of LCD repair to show what are some of the components that typically cause a failure similar to your's. Get back to me if you need more info. I hope that this helps to solve your BLACK SCREEN problem. I'mlouie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com
Good luck. Bye for now.

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

ViewSonic LCD (VA1912w) Went Blank

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem. But now My LCD completely went blank. Turning off/on didnt work at all now. I've tried couple of other tweaks mentioned on this site but they didnt work. I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.

MAG Innovision LT1919WDb flat screen goes black


I had the same problem. I contact the manufactuer and they refused to fix it. They said it would cost an additional $100 to have it fixed. I have not even had it a year. I thought products sold in America were suppose to last longer than a year? What has happened to companies standing behind there products. Beware of this monitor!!! DO NOT BUY IT!!! LT1919WDB

Monitor started to flicker then went blank


I have a envision professional series and I love it, but I will get to the point.
I recent ly received a Envision EN9410e monitor, had the same problem (flickering screen then turned on, then off then on then blank). The problem is bad capacitors. There are 7 electrolytic capXon capacitors that will need to be replaced. You should see if the caps are bulging or leaking, if so replace. As known by many replace with the same capacitance and voltage. There are a few incidences that the capacitors where replaced and the problem wasn’t solved; this is because the cap problem wasn’t taken care of and damage occurred to another part of the monitor. The back light is a Royer oscillator (cool things) and it uses two smd mosfet transistors. They are on the green side of the circuit board near a big control chip (they each look like a off rectangle black square with eight pins) you need to see if there is any carbon or chard residue between the pins or burning smell from them, if there is you need to remove the transistor and do some board repair then ether put a new transistor or try the old one. No offence to the people at Envision but not smart putting the drain, gate and source so close to each other under the chip where there is such high voltage! Hope this helps.

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers


Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
Good luck
