Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
Hansol Flat screen H771. Once unplugged or after a powercut, when it is plugged in again it flickers but won't show anything on the screen at all. I noticed that there is a black box between the screen and the mains that has a green light on it. This light is pulsing after unplugging/power failure, if i leave it plugged in for a week or more unplugged from the screen then light comes on continuously and screen will work once more. Do I need a new voltage regulator/transformer? as this time I cannot use screen at all after the latest power failure.
The box your describe is the external power supply/adapter of your monitor. It is possible that:
1. there is a loose connection or a cold solder inside the adapter;
2. there could be components defective or nearing end of its life internally in the adapter.
You could try:
a. gently shake or tap on the adapter to determine if doing so will stabilize the green light instead of pulsing. If yes, then you have just confirmed of the loose connection or cold solder;
b. Opening the unit and visually check for any loose connection. Should you feel adventurous, you can expose the PCB and check for any dull grayish color solder joint. These are indications of cold solder. Cold solder normally appears on power component such as capacitors, high wattage resistors, regulator transistors or IC power packs. Repairs would involve determined defective parts replacement.
Should you not be comfortable doing this and since it would require familiarity and knowledge of electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron, perhaps it may be best to seek the services of a qualified service professional.
Alternately, there are online adapter replacement that should work if the specifications are the same. Ratings should include input voltage, output voltage, current capacity and the end connector that should fit your LCD display.
Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
