Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
My 20" monitor was purchased in December of 2006. I have an iMac on the analog side and a MacBook on the digital. Recently, the digital began to get temperamental and required button pushing and unplugging at the computer to get the monitor to work. Today, I can't get it to work. Analog is fine.
I recognize the model number as a Viewsonic model.
Check the digital input using another computer to make sure it's the monitor.
If you're brave enough, do this:
Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or other boards look domed or vented on the top.
Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often, 1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.
Capacitors are used to remove ripple from the switching power supply. This ripple, or noise could cause digital circuits to act up. Usually it's easy to spot the bad ones. Good ones look like a perfect cylinder. If they look swollen on the top they are likely bad.
If you do this and it does not solve the problem, the main board could be going bad and require replacement, You should be able to order one from your local Viewsonic service shop. By the way, that model is fairly new. Remember that Viewsonic monitors carry a three year warranty.
