    I have a 1730 that is just over a year old. It has always performed like a trooper, but has suddenly started to loose it's picture after a few seconds. The power light stays Green as it is supposed to but the LCD stops working. If I turn the monitor off and then on again, I get a picture for another second, then the screen goes black again. I have changed the power cord and the VGA cable and even attached it to another computer, but still have the same problem. Any suggestions?? Please???

My FPD1730 has just died. It is the power supply board. So if someone want to get together, one of us can have a good monitor. Anyone game? Best deal for me wins.

Try using it on a different computer, it's possible that it is your graphics card causing the problem. Check for bent pins.

Monitor just stopped powering up one day. Is there a breaker or something?

There is main power fuse in the power supply module, but if the screen flashes on for seconds, then the problem is in the inverter board due to bad caps (very common in this model):

Monitor flashes on but with 1-3 seconds it goes to balck screen. I've replaced the electrolytic caps in the power supply, but it didn't help

Try different video and/or power cables, but most likely this is dead. Sorry!
If it's still under warranty, (or the computer it came with is), call Gateway support.

Thin Green line from top to bottom of screen

Usually the case with this issue is the LCD panel itself. After a certain long period of time, some LCD panels just bug out and stop working. ( not sure why, possibly the way they were assembled and manufactured. For instance the LCD Panel has 8 connectors ((top)) and 3 connectors ((left)) (((Depends on model)))that attach to the main board of the LCD Panel, and on many occasions the thin lines wear and cut and therefore loosing part of your screen. If i explain further how it works i can write you a good explanation, just message me. That is the issue or the Cable connector from the Video Card to the LCD Panel is faulty. Try replacing that or the line will stay there for a long while then eventually your LCD display will begin to show more lines and eventualy Nebula itself. ( unusable )

You can also try repairing the LCD, in some rare cases the only problem when the line shows up is because of the video genesis card inside the FPD. try swapping that out with a known good one and perhaps that will work otherwise eventually the monitor will begin to stop working over time.

Screen going black, green LED staying on

Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)
