Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor and computer were left on in "low power state" mode. Came home from work and monitor just had static-like white/black streaks. Power button lit but would not power-off. Unplugged, waited, re-plugged, now no stand-by light or anything. Won't power on. Power is still flowing through AC cord because a thumb drive inserted in side will light up.

Hmm, I put mine into sleep mode, bloody thing would not wake up? Anyway, if you are a DIY'er, try this, cause worked on mine, yes it is now awake cause I'm typing this diddy!

Switch off poota! Remove side panel/ STOP/ Find and put on Disposible Latex Gloves to fit!. (Static from you)?
Torch would help/ locate standby small circlar flat battery/gentle remove from seating/place were you can find, don't lose it!. If you can, but replacement, but not necesssary/ Now you will see a lot of wiring, don't worry, look for a bundle of wiring, approx 6/8 wires going into a long flat thin plug, which is attached to the mother board, it may have a small securing lug, push out of way/ Gently but firmly, wiggle plug from socket on mother board, and place to one side. Now wait. I figure any memory that is retained through onboard hardware, looses its function cause there is no charge?
Reconnect wiring plug to socket on mother board, be sure you line up all the pins to their sockets, it will slip on if you have all in line, gentle push to secre.
REplace battery, again beind care to place rightside up. (Wording on Top of Battery Facing Out)
Replace poota panel, switch on, hopfully it should fire up.
AS for Monitor, hopfully it to should kick in without problem. Before you ask, me and monitors dislike each other. It plays up, I chuck and replace. Can not be wasting my time?
Hope this solution works for you.

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can


I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

Primer;
The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
OR,
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Stuck in power save mode and can not get it out


I suggest your computer isn't stuck on Power Saver Mode

Your monitor went to Power Saver Mode

Power Saver Mode, Sleep Mode, NO SIGNAL = Same/same,
in this instance.

Why?

Because your computer isn't working.
The two leading causes of desktop computer failure is it is dirty inside, and/or a bad Power Supply.

There are issues with bad capacitors on the motherboard, too.

1) State the computer manufacturer, and model number.
I don't like giving generic one-size-fits-all information.

2) Do you have a multimeter, or access to one?
An economical model can be purchased for as little, as $5 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
I have seen them on checkout aisle racks, in major discount stores.

3) Is the computer dirty inside?

4) Is there a working computer that has a Compatible power supply, that you can borrow for a temporary test unit?
Won't hurt the Power Supply, if something is wrong with the computer.

(Unless of course you open it up, and everything is melted together inside the computer! lol!) {DOUBT IT}

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

Computer ON a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted area, on the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

OR,
Try what JLTJJ recommends,

Monitor will not power on


The monitor has entered permanent sleep mode. After four years of service, it probably is not worth repairing

There is a long silver button with a black moon on the upper left of my keyboard. When I accidentally hit it, the screen goes black. What is it.....and how do you get your screen back?


Hi,
Depending on how your keyboard is configured, that key is set to do one of two things:
  1. Puts your computer to sleep. (A low power state where almost everything is shut off, including the monitor). You can resume from sleep by hitting any key on the keyboard, hitting the power button on your computer, or clicking the mouse.
  2. Puts your computer into hibernation. (An even lower power state where everything is actually shut off, but a copy of everything open is saved to the hard drive to be opened during start up. It basically allows you to turn off the computer, but be able to turn it back on with program exactly how you left it). You can resume from hibernation only by hitting the power button on your computer.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! You can leave a testimonial or contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Power Save mode on, can not use computer


If your computer is indeed running, simply unplug your monitor from the wall, and then plug it back in. This will bring your monitor out of power save mode instantly.
