Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor keeps turning off

I have a Gateway monitor, purchased from Circuit City. TFT LCD...FPD1975W. It will turn on, about half dark, flicker, flash a blue box about 1 inch x 2 inches with what looks like a plug with VGA in the center. Then it turns off. While it is on I can access internet, etc. It only stays on about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Also, the icons and boxes for internet explorer all all about 4 times bigger than they were. Help!! I am on a 2nd computer in the same room.

Hello Wally,

The monitor has a power supply board that is about to die. We have a repair guide for this unit posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com Check it out and take the back cover off of your monitor, look at your power board and I would bet you have the same issue. There will be parts called capacitors that have the tops bulging. This is caused by heat buildup in the monitor case. If you replace the capacitors you should be back as good as new. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping. Let us know if you have any questions about the repair or the repair service.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Hello,

A flashing power light indicates a failure of the power supply, this will also cause the white screen. Here is a link to a page showing what parts need to be replaced to repair the power supply board and get your monitor back running again.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed GATEWAY and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Fuzzy screen on Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor


With the pixels acting up and the monitor having the same problem on any computer that its connected to. The screen itself is bad and since there are no replacement screens for that monitor, you would have to buy a new monitor or get it replaced if its under warranty.

Gateway Monitor goes blank after a few seconds after startup.


Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.

Restart the PC and get into SAFE MODE. Hit and release F8 many times right after turning on PC. If it works, then go into your video setting and either change the settings or remove the video driver. Restart the PC and you'll get 800X600 screen, then reinstall the video drivers. IF it won't go above 800X600, screen internals are bad, LCD toasted. I've seen that happen with LCDs and older monitors.

The backlight or inverter is going out on your screen.
Eventually it will just stay dark. You will need to replace one of the two if plan on keeping monitor.
