Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
Hi, I've got the same problem where the screen is switched on but it is almost completely black. I can see something is going on, but its too dark to even read anything on the scree. It sounds like you had the same problem.
Please let me know if you were able to fix it and what you did.
Your problem is in the inverter circuit. But the problem with these is normally easy to fix. It's the capacitors in the power supply board that need to be replaced rather then a direct repair to the inverter circuit.
If you have good electical knowledge then you will already know how to do this repair.
If not, then its best left to someone who does like your local TV repairman. The voltages inside LCD's go far above what you have comming from your power outlets in the house.
It should not cost a lot to have taken care of though by a professional. Call around and get a few rough quotes.
