Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

I replaced the caps but now the blue light only stays on for 10-20 seconds then goes completely out. There is nothing on the screen at any time. I have rechecked polarity, solder, connections-- nothing seems out of place. Now what--before replacing the caps, the monitor would not come on at times untill finally it would not come on at all.

Ur power supply board have major issues.Those transformers have short in it coil and maybe also the Mosfet IC power regulator is shorted too.Not worth repairing the power board now.Because indiviual IC and tranformers are hard to buy.Mostly sell in bulk for Tech. shop only.Replaced the whole power supply board.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement. .

My Sony KP-46WT500 screen shows the tv image in blue only for a few seconds, then it goes completely blank (as if it were off). Do I need to replace the bulbs?


It is rear projection TV that use 3 picture tubes of red-green-blue to show color picture on tv front screen.
Do you see standby red light blinking when TV shuts off after showing blue image for a while?
If red standby light is blinking, please count it how many times it blinks, there would be 3 seconds pause between blinks so count pause to pause and post it here to find out possible solution.
Thanks.

Screen goes black


The video adapter board is what controls the monitor. If you are going to replace a board that would be the one.

Won't boot. Power light on, No Video Signal message


It's also possible that your operating system has become corrupted. See if there is enough time to boot into safe mode, or choose a boot option to go into the recovery partition.

Have you made any recent hardware or software modifications?

Power light coming on when you plug it in but no lighting of the screen is usually caused by the power inverter board having gone bad. Common on the 17s due to their age is a bad bulb or more.
I repair these 90% of the time
