Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
I have a gateway 2100, FPD2185W Monitor not television as the product info choice on this site suggests, which when it goes into long periods of standby will not restart, the blue light on the on/off switch flashes once and on the second the monitor loses all power.
I wait 10 seconds and switch power back on at wall and after several and sometimes many attempts it comes on perfectly, once on there are absolutely no further issues.
Have wireless mouse and keyboard in two of the USB screen slots and monitor cable running back to Desktop,
What I would like to do it identify the faulty component and replace it.
Most common parts that go bad are rge DC filter caps in the power supply and in the inverter circuits, that will be th first place to look, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps here:

It's very likely a problem with some of the capacitors in the power supply area. You can search for similar fixes here on this site. I'm ordering parts now for mine. Two of the eight tall/blue capacitors in a bunch have tops that are bulging (but I'll replace all eight since they're cheap). There's a pair of two in the middle of the same board on mine with bulging tops and there are four transistors in that same area that look like they got too hot. Most people seem to be getting away with only replacing the bulged capacitors but here is my total part list from digikey.com:
785-1106-1-ND quantity 2 (the D405-marked transistors) 785-1114-1-ND quantity 2 (the D408-marked transistors) P12389-ND quantity 8 (the 470uF capacitors) P12383-ND quantity 2 (the 220uF capacitors)
The total part list is about $7.50 with another $2.50 or less shipping. It's a pain to take apart, given the small connectors inside. The fix assumes you have soldering skills.
Go with these from digikey versus Radio Shack. They're rated for 220 degrees fahrenheit versus only 85 degrees and they're about a third less cost.
