Hi, a couple months ago the diplay would try to come on, the go black and make a poping noise. Sometimes I'd see some bright static lines and the power button would go orange. It sat because I was so disgusted with gateway and a diplay that lasted less than 2 years and they wouldn't offer any solutions, help or be anything but rude. Anyways, fired it up yesterday and it did the same thing untill I moved it around and then it worked untill now. Now it flashes on for a couple of secs with slight buzing noise, then screen goes black but power button stays blue. Power supply? I feel I can install whatever needed if you can also tell me where to get parts?

The most common cause of power up issues with the Gateway FPD1960 monitor is a failure of the filter capacitors on the AIP-0100 power supply board in the unit. Here is a link to repair information for that board.
the_princes, On the rear side of LCD screen that you look at are two each long, straight, cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes that need to "LIGHT-UP"and provide pure WHITE light to be reflected through the LCD glass panel that you look at from the front side! If you don't have any luck with Gateway providing warranty service or doing a swapout with them, then you should possibly look into having it Refurbished by someone locally in your area. I highly recommend that you go to youtube and watch some video clips of LCD MONITOR REPAIR to see exactly what you are getting involved with. When making a post to tthis site you should always give some "history" along with the trouble "symptom" such as how old is unit and approximate total amount of "ON" time the unit has. I hope you can use the info provided. I'm louie12fix on fixya or email@example.com Bye for now.
The monitor needs to be replaced. I had an LG LCD that did this luckily it was still under warranty. Contact the maker and have your receipt handy. Otherwise buy a new monitor. Monitors tend to be replacement only
have you found a solution to this problem? i have the very same problem. i have taken apart the back of the monitor and found that if i take the small circuit board that is plugged into the power switch it goes away leading me to beleive that it is this small board but i do not know where to get it at. the number on the board is ar577 vk-583 rev:1. any help would be greatly appreciated. my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Cleaning won't do it.
It probably needs all new capacitors on the board. are any canister
looking components bulged up at the tops ? This is the most common
problem on the ones I fix.
