Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

The Gateway FPD2275W TFT LCD Monitor the screen is black when my computer is up & running. I can briefly bring up the screen, and it shows my desk top, then changes to black. I have been trying to reset it back to the factory settings, but I am unable to reset, with the OSD screen, because they only show for a couple of seconds, before the screen changes to black. I have another older screen that I changed out with from my daughters computer, and it is working normally. Any suggestions on how to correct this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Allen

    I have the exact same problem. If it were the backlight converter, the screen wouldn't be displaying the image for the 2-3 seconds it does. I took my monitor to BestBuy, they didn't know what was causing it, said they could send it out, if fixable would take 2-4 weeks and may be just as expensive as buying a new one. I bought a new one, Only a fraction of what I paid for the first one.

Hi!

The problem is not the setting on your monitor...The problem is the backlight inverter located inside the upper and lower edge of your screen..
It is busted. The backlight inverter is the light source responsible for the displaying image on your screen. If these were busted.. then the only thing you will see is black screen.

It is very risky for you to replace it by yourself if you don't have the knowledge and the right tools to open the back of your lcd..My suggestion is to bring your monitor to a credible technician to have your backlight inverter replace. if there is warranty for your lcd, please avail this.

Hope it help..

Much appreciated if you rate this solution..thanks..

    doesn't sounds logical. if it were indeed the backlight issue, there should be no image at all. however, the image appeared for about 2 seconds before disappearing

Gateway Monitor goes blank after a few seconds after startup.


Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.
