Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor
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.
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.
