Question about Gateway FPD-1930 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

3 Answers

Dark Screen I have a Gateway FPD 1930 monitor. Recently the screen became very dark. Almost impossible to read. However if I push the lower AUTO botton on the bottom part of the unit A box pops up that says "PROOCESSING AUTO CONFIGURATION." The screen brightens up and goes back to normal for about 4 seconds then the box disappears and the screen darkens once more. Very frustrating. Can anybody help me? Thanks

It'll cost you about $100-150 to have the display repaired - balance that
against the cost of a new panel. If it' was a 15" or 17" panel it may not
make much sense to have it repaired - iand its 19", it might.

    If the already mentioned solutions did not help. Please evaluate if its worthwhile to get your monitor checked by a certified tech or replacing it with the new one.

    I am sorry for the trouble you are going through.

There is a weird possibility that somehow your PC is configured to save power.. that is something you can do on a laptop to save battery..
you can check in the control panel what is the status of your energy options and see whats going up there..
there is also another possibility that it might be the monitor to be malfunctioning... but if after the screen being dark and you enter the options on the monitor and they are bright i doubt its a malfunctioning monitor..
so try to reinstall the monitor drivers and possibly the drivers of your video card if you have one.. but my biggest bet would be the option energy in the control panel

How can i reset my gateway fpd 1930 lcd


At the bottom of the monitor, there are some buttons. Pushing the right-most button (Auto/Set) will enable the automatic configuration to happen. This will "automatically optimize the monitor's image position, clock, and phase."

Gateway FPD 1830 18.1 in. Flat Panel Problem


Usually in these cases the power supply would be the issue, but you say the OSD window shows up clearly, So the LCD panel is good and the Power Supply /inverter depending on which your FPD has.
FPD 1830 should have 3 boards(logic, Inverter, Power) otherwise just 2(logic, power)

If it is super dim, the problem is the inverter. Or the Power Supply if the inverter is embedded

Otherwise what your issue is the logic board, if you can swap out that part for a good one, Chances are for sure that you will have a spanking new FPD working.

I've worked with these a lot. Im working on one right now.
I hope this helps
Wish you luck
