Koakes898, Here is a clue!! Have you seen the new style Curlie-Q compact fluorescent (CFL) screw-in light bulbs at the nearby Home Depot or Menards. Can you imagine them having long, thin, straight tubes and providing WHITE LIGHT on the opposite side of the screen of your FPD2275 display. If the "switch-mode-power-supply" detects a Fault in the cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" "electronic ballast" circuit Called an "INVERTER" it goes into SHUTDOWN mode to try and save itself from self destruction. Visit YOUTUBE and search out video clips (8-12 min run time) on "LCD disassembly" FYI !! I'll bet your monitor is in the top 2 types of power supply failure modes. Then you will Probably be able to decide on what to do with your monitor. Trade in for new, or BUY new and repair old to keep as spare. or try to do cash+ old swapout with Gateway for a same model-Refurbished. You do have a few options. Last option is attempt repair on your own if handy with soldering pencil and solderwick and solder. Lots of stuf on the web, you just need to do the search!! I'mlouie12fix on fixya. or lmistyrel @aol .com Hope this was helpful in some way. please rate this on fixya if this was of some use to you. Bye for now.

SOURCE: monitor screen blank and LED orange light flashing

For some reason, it seems as if your monitor has either lost the video signal or the capability to interpret the siganl. If you have the ability, put a second monitor (or tv) to your computer. See if you get a video siganl. If you do, then your monitor has an internal issue with the signal and needs to be addressed "hands on" by a technician. If you do not see a video, then your problem lies within your video card. Good luck.

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Regards,
Jacob

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.


The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.

No display


With the monitor hooked up and the computer on, you can take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen and see if it is displaying a picture. If you can see a picture then you can go the route of fixing your back light. I have a spot light that I use and it works really well. If you can't see anything then you are probably SOL and have to replace the monitor.

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
