Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

Samsung monitor blacks out --

I have a 3 year old Samsung monitor that worked fine until recently. Now when you open a full screen 3D application, the screen goes black and the monitor appears to shut down although technically I don't think its off. The same situation occurs if you shutdown the monitor and try to restart it again. It occurs with DVI and VGA connections and it occurs regardless of the source computer or applicable video card. If the monitor rests for 15 minutes and then restarted, it will function again. Sounds like some electrical component no longer handling surge loads.

I'd like to at least have a repair shop see if it can be repaired and provide an estimate . I've called a couple of the shops on your link but they say that don't typically handle and provide repairs and estimates for monitors - even though I'd be willing to pay a reseasonable charge to look and it and advise whats would be needed ---suggestions

A flashing power light like that indicated a blown power supply. Your monitor should be under warranty with Samsung. Check the mfg date on the back sticker, if it is less than 3 years then contact Samsung. If it is out of warranty then contact us at and we can get you the info you need to do the repair yourself.

Monitor cold start issue only as #2 monitor

The start up problem is common and will only get worse. Call Samsung as these monitors have a 3-year warranty. No receipt? They will accept your word regarding your purchase. I have two that failed exactly the same way. I called 1-800-SAMSUNG and they gave me the choice of an exchange pair sent directly to my house (requiring a temporary credit card deposit) or by having the exchange pair sent to the UPS store where I would swap out my bad units. No receipt. They merely asked me when I purchased it so they could have it for their records. Manufacture dates such as your (March '06) and a purchase of September '06 are not far fetched at all. .

If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
