Question about Gateway FPD1960 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

FPD1960 model #900G

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?

    I'm having the same problem...how do you run the factory reset?

  • Anonymous May 21, 2008

    Yup. My problem exactly. I've pulled the whole thing apart, and it seems like the high pitched buzzing sound is coming from the chip in the LCD panel itself.

    You said it for me, I am having the same problem and when called to Gateway they are firm that this is outta warranty so I said okay, but this seems to be a common problem, sorry but since you are out of warranty nothing can be done, can't even tell me how many of the same problems occur, Gateway is a sad sad company and sucks that they already got my money the first time, just spread the word this company does not stick behind its CRAPPY PRODUCT

Gateway 19" lcd color monitor, product no. fpd1960 model no. 900g


Hello,

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.

I got a Gateway LCD 900G monitor, it keeps flickering and making hissing noises, what can i do?


Flickering could be a loose power connection but the hissing is indicative of a potential short. for your own safety, I'd get this to a TV type repairman asap.

Gateway 900G does not stay on, has power


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 lmistyrel@aol.com Bye for now.

Black screen after a couple of seconds


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

Monitor doesnt work


You can check the fuse on the monitor and replace it. In case the fuse is OK check the cable connector, display card on the motherboard.

Thanks

Gateway FPD1960 monitor power suply


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.

Gateway 19 in flat monitor Model 900G


Does the power button light up or blink at all ?
It probably is the power board/ inverter. I fix many of these.

To TeeKO, did you try moving it back to see if it was maybe a bad household receptical ?
