Question about Gateway FPD 1730 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

2 Answers

HANNS-G Model# HX191

This monitor is not showing any images. However, the monitor is getting power. The power light is flashing which would normally indicate that the computer is sleeping however, this is not the case. I have checked all of the connections and switched monitors and even plugged this monitor into my laptop and nothing. Could this be a faulty monitor?

    No, there are no images at all. The power light flashes as if it were in sleep mode though.

    I have the same problem...the monitor keeps going black. I got this monitor from a friend and I don't know if I need to "set" something with the keys that are on the front of the monitor (ie OSD, Auto/Set). Any information would be helpful...thanks!

The issue here is most probably to do with your PC & not the monitor. You need to go into the display settings & check the multiple monitor support is on. I've just gotten one of these monitors & had the same problem.

Seems like it. Can you see a very faint image of the screen if you hold your nose up to it?

    Does the monitor's menu come up at all? If not then the screen is definitely faulty.

When I turn on the aspire one note book it goes to a white screen and will flash once and go to white screen and stays there, owver all other lights on the panel flash normal, but will not boot up. this is...


If you're still under warranty, you can diagnose one possible problem easily enough. Blank white screen with the LED indicator lights running normally otherwise will almost always mean that the LCD panel is bad. If you don't have an external monitor available, find a friend with one and hook up the laptop to that monitor. Be sure to have the laptop power off when you attach the monitor cable. Press the power up button and then the Fn+F? (whatever F key has a little icon on iyt showing a monitor) combo to switch to an external monitor. If your laptop's Operating System shows up on the monitor, you know for certain it's jus your LCD panel that's bad and you can ask the manufacturer to replace it.

Blank Display, using exernal monitor, can see display info w/flashlight, display flashes light at startup


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Green led light flashing on 700p proview flat panel and no picture


Usually when the power light flashes and the screen remains blank and unlit, your power board is in fact malfunctioning. This is not always the case, as the problem can sometimes reside in the input or inverter boards. I would first recommend that you feel comfortable with opening up your screen and looking at components. It can be a little overwhelming at first. BEFORE PROCEEDING, UNPLUG POWER TO MONITOR. If inclined to check, carefully open the casing around your screen. I have not worked on your particular model, but some are easier to open than others.

Once opened, you need to gain access to the circuit boards. Sometimes they are not protected by metal, other times they are completely encompassed. The flashing power light usually indicates that a capacitor(s) is(are) malfunctioning. To see if this is the issue, locate the power board (usually the one with larger-size components) and look for any capacitors having bubbled or raised tops and/or oozing a brownish liquid. If not on the power board, look elsewhere for the same symptom.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! If you have recently had your monitor plugged in, the larger capacitors can still carry a charge. If you cross the leads of a capacitor while it carries a charge, it will discharge. It won't hurt any other components, but if you cross the leads with something that is in direct contact with yourself, you can get quite a jolt! There is usually a large voltage capacitor (normally just one) on the power board of these screens. I tested one with a multimeter after immediately unplugging it, and it still held a 166V charge! So please, do this with caution.

If a bad capacitor has been found, simply remove the old one and solder a new one in its place!

MONITER LIGHT IS GREEN BUT ONLY SHOWS A NORMAL SCREEN FOR 1/2 SECOND THEN TURNS BLACK


HI. I had the same problem with mine. It would flash the screen on for a split second and then turn black, the whole time the power light remained green. Upon opening up the case, I pulled the combo power supply board/inverter board out for inspection. I noticed one of the capacitors had a bulge on top indicating it was bad. It was the the 680uf 25v capacitor. I desoldered it, and soldered in the new one. After hooking everything back up, bingo!! Monitor now works perfectly. I couldn't find an exact match to the capacitance locally, but I had a 1000uf 35v cap in my utility box. It worked fine as a replacement. You can usually go within 30 percent of tolerance and be alright. Just don't go under on capacitance or voltage. I hope this helps.
