Question about Gateway FPD1960 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Gateway 900G does not stay on, has power

I have a Gateway 900G that works for one second before the screen goes black. The blue power light stays on steadily. When I turn it off and turn it back on again it does the same thing so I know it works (as it shows me the screen). The monitor just doesn't stay on. I don't know much about LCD monitors but can I fix something? HELP! THANKS!!

    Thank you so much for the reply. I just bought this yesterday from someone. I have no idea what the history is but the monitor is 4 years old. If I would just take off the cover, can I see the flourescent tubes? WHere do you suggest I get repair from - Staples, Circuit City or a local electronics repairman. Who knows about LCD monitors? Thanks!

The_princes, On the rear side of LCD screen that you look at are two each long, straight, cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes that need to "LIGHT-UP"and provide pure WHITE light to be reflected through the LCD glass panel that you look at from the front side! If you don't have any luck with Gateway providing warranty service or doing a swapout with them, then you should possibly look into having it Refurbished by someone locally in your area. I highly recommend that you go to youtube and watch some video clips of LCD MONITOR REPAIR to see exactly what you are getting involved with. When making a post to tthis site you should always give some "history" along with the trouble "symptom" such as how old is unit and approximate total amount of "ON" time the unit has. I hope you can use the info provided. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com Bye for now.

Power comes on but screen stays black


The backlight inverter board may be bad, or worst case will be bad lamp. You should look to see if the cable comes off the inverter board first. You may learn maore here:

Power light coming on when you plug it in but no lighting of the screen is usually caused by the power inverter board having gone bad. Common on the 17s due to their age is a bad bulb or more.
