Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor
I have a Gateway FPD1760 (Silver) 17" LCD Monitor, and I've for a couple of years, (possibly 2 to 4 years) and all of a sudden, it shut offs. when I tried turning it back it didn't work. I unplugged it and then plugged back, It started to make a weird hissing sound. I checked every wire and I thought it was the cord to plug into the wall I'm probably wrong. No light turns on and nothing shows up on the screen. I stopped using it for a few hours and still nothing, I unplugged and then replugged and no light comes up and it makes a hissing sound? Should I get it fixed? or is it the cord for the wall?
Does the cord plug directly from the wall into the monitor, or is there a power "brick" adapter between?
If there's a "brick" listen to see if the hissing is coming from the monitor itself or the brick. If the hissing is coming from the brick you may just need a new power adapter.
If there's no brick or the hissing is coming from the monitor, the monitor probably needs repair. With the price of LCD monitors these days compared to the price of labor, you're probably better off getting a new LCD monitor. Just make sure you take your old one to a proper E-Waste facility so it doesn't pollute the environment.
