Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I believe my monitor is on with the blue light lit. However, I cannot get a computer to work with it. When I push on the input buttons I will see lines streak through but then it goes black. I have tried a dell computer with the white hook up cord and I have tried a toshiba with the blue hook up cord and neither computers will show up on the monitor.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have a Samsung 940bw monitor. After pressing the auto button, it does not work anymore. Is there a problem about monitor or is it broken? I am waiting for your help. Thanks.


Hello
damnor01 here to the rescue!

Welcome to Fixya.

Since you pushed the Auto button it is possible that the monitor has changed the input type to a type other than that you are currently using.

For instance it may have chosen to accept VGA input however you have the DVI or HDMI connected.
To fix this you will have to push the auto button again, and possibly again to get it to find your current input channel.
You may need to turn your computer off and then back on again.

You may need to connect your monitor using a different connector, example via VGA, DVI or HDMI. It all depends on the connection you have at present.
Blue Connector is VGA.
White connector is DVI.
HDMI is very narrow conector usually black.

Please be sure to rate this session!
Thanking you

Monitor no longer works - all black


there is no reset button on lcd monitors, check power cable first, if the blue pilot led lights but no picture, you might need to bring the unit to the shop for servicing..

Black screen


At this point I believe there are failed caps in your monitor.

This is very common in all LCD monitors. Did the tech just push the power switch off and on?
From my experience at fixing broken monitors of all brands, I think it is the power supply problem.

Dell computer won't come on...only get yellow light, no blue


If the Tower has a blue light, then it appears to be working, I'd check the cable connection to the video port on the tower and the INPUT Select Button of the Monitor (I've seen people change the input select to DVI when connected analog for example)
