I have a Gateway Monitor service no. FPD1976w. It blacks out after 2 seconds, the backlight goes off. The power light remains solid blue. By switching inputs it will come back on momentarily, but for 2 seconds, then blacks out.

    I doubt if it is the computer. I have it connected to two different computers. One connected to the VGA input and the other one connected to the DVI input. Both computers work when connected to other monitors. This problem manifests itself the same no matter which input it is connected to. Could you recommend where I could get a service manual for this monitor? I am an electronics tech. I used to work on monitors, TVs, VCRs, etc.

Try connecting the monitor into a known working computer to see if it's a monitor or video card problem.

If the problem is isolated with the monitor, then I could say that the power supply board inside the monitor could have gone bad.

Good luck and have a great day!

You've got it, one of the circuit boards has one or more failed capacitors.

If you decide to take it apart, check for capacitors with either a bulging top or a yellow stain underneath on the board itself.

Befored taking it apart, because you will, even if just slighty, damage the screen case, check your warranties. I had one pop recently, it had a 3 year - return to base warrany.

This is a common problem with many LCD monitors. The
printed circuit board that provides a stable voltage for the monitor to operate
from starts to fail. The PCB can be replaced, when/if they are available, or repaired
in most cases at a much lower cost. for more information on this email me at

Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.

RE:monitor goes black


Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.
