Question about Gateway FPD1960 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Thanks for your help guys.
It all started a week ago- I could not get my monitor to turn on when I arrived home. I typically turn off my monitor, go to school / bed, and leave my computer running. I would move my mouse to initiate it out of whatever sleep/screensaver mode it was in (not hibernating), and it would not turn on. It woulf fizzle, I would see gray vertical lines, then it would just go out. The orange 'power connected' light would not even turn on, which is supposed to be on, regardless of computer connection, as long as the monitor is plugged in.
Early on, when I would try and revive and my monitor would go out, I would wait an hour or so, try and turn it back on, and it would again go through the gray / black lines, and MAY (50/50) kick on and work normally.
Now its at the point where I cant get it to turn on at all, no orange standby light, no power whatsoever, nothing. My CPU is fine, the power cord is fine, my monitor just fails.
Gateway is worthless, they dont want to do anything about it. How can I get this fixed?
Hi this is the way how to examine
what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen
went gray or stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or
not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best
angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or
any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside
screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot
see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you
have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It
may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board
because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a
technician to do so.
Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
