14brad, It sure sounds like the "switch-mode-power-supply" has detected a fault with some other circuit or with itself and is going in and out of SHUTDOWN mode to try and save itself from having a nonrecovrable catastrophic failure. A tech will need to evaluate it, or he will buy it from you for $5 US. If he is lucky he will put less than $6 in parts into it and resell it for $40-$60. Go visit YOUTUBE and search and view video clips of LCD monitor disassembly and LCD monitor repair. also try or and for more info. Then you will be able to make a decision on what course of action you will want to take be it repair or trade-in for new monitor. If this was good info for you, please rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie

Back-light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
Main board too should be checked. Contact any service technician.

I have a FPD1975W tft LCD monitor and the screen will blink on but then shut off. the power button still shows on though. i've checked all connections and did a cleaning as well but cant get the monitor...

The description points to the inverter board which energizes the back lights behind the screen, and is on the verge of failure. The cause is usually bad capacitors, the board will need to be replaced or a attempt to repair the existing one. If a professional gets involved the parts and labor can run high.

Your power/inverter board is in need of an overhaul.
The capacitors are failing and possibly a transistor.
If the screen showed any redness or pink whebn it was working, Then there is a slight chance that one or more of the 4 lightbulbs in the screen was going bad and finally went.
If you take it apart and send me a picture, I may be able to tell by looking at it.
I repair these boards on ebay

Gericom TFT Monitor

Is the brightness flickering or are the images moving about.
If the brighness, The bulbs are possibly beginning to go and after they warm up they stay put.
If it is the image, then the video board could be doing the same. A failing voltage regulator on the video card board will make a picture streak or wiggle.
There is also a chance due to age that the power board voltage is starting to get weak due to common failing capacitors.

No display, clipping sound appear

The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor.
It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short).
Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works.
CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT.

Gateway FPD1960 19" CD has a red tint to all oc screen when I turn it on.

Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.
