Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

Gateway power up issue after standby

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:

    Thanks so much for the help, I will take longer to research the articles and swap the monitor to take a look, would be such a shame to just give up, its been really good value and in four years despite what I have read this one has never given a moments trouble, its the monitor I use on my server so its never been off for all that time.
    I have a perfectly sound soldering station so as long as I can identify everything replacing them should be no real problem.
    Funny I have replaced lots on gaming consoles, never had to touch my PC equipment so many thanks again for the advise

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.

I have a Gateway monitor (FPD2185W) that flashes a Gateway icon when I first turn it on. If I unplug it will display the desktop of the computer. What is the problem and is it worth fixing?


The power printed circuit board is failing by the
information that you have given, but with additional information we may find
the actual cause and a solution to it. You may email me at: Sprint6@zoominternet.net or explain
better the symptoms it is having.

Gateway monitor fpd2185w goes to sleep and then shuts off


I suggest to mess around with the monitor buttons and see if you can disable it from sleeping from there. If not then try enabling it to sleep on your computer settings. A good restart after any changes is always helpful.
