Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television
After reviewing the blog, i appear to have the same problem as other with my monitor. It was bought from Best Buy and after the warranty expired it no longer works and no one from Gateway will help me. I need to know if i can send it somewhere to be repaired or if it is even worth fixing. Please help.
here is an update, I had the capacitors ordered at a german online store CONRAD @10$ and did the replacement within 1.5 hrs today.
Guess what, the piece is working just fine after that. Actually, I am using it right now writing the very comment.
Please note, this is a single layer board so even an unexperienced person can do it if you are familiar with the principles. (If you have never done any soldering job, it's probably a challenge and you should consider looking for someone else to do it for you)

I had the same problem. The monitor stopped working. The light came on and nothing.
I fixed it.
It takes patience and skill.
e-mail me at Andrew@CreativeAudio.biz and I will help you through it. Or if you have the monitor and no time, I might buy it from you.

I and many many many others like you have the same problem. The suggested solution is to replace the capacitors on the board. (look for the "blotted" ones). This may be too complicated for most and should NOT cost more than $75. BOTTOM line: DON'T BUY THIS MONITOR AND DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM GATEWAY!
