My Gateway FPD2275W LCD monitor has just failed.


Trying to find replacement parts for your model could be a task. LCDs are so inexpensive these days it would be cheaper to just replace it. Not sure if you have a Frys computer store nearby but I saw a 22" LCD for 129.00. Check your local electronics stores also. If you did find the part for your Gateway consider the cost and installation fees.

Osd locked


Unplug the monitor from under the screen. Leave it off for a min. If OSD returns, it's a bad monitor. Maybe a button is stuck ?

To make sure that the monitors power is correctly connected, check the power button on the front of the monitor it should be glowing purple. If the purple button is not visible check the power connection.

22' FPD2275W gatewate monitor menu is locked


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!
