Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Uneven backlight in just purchased Best Buy LCD.

Hello,

I've ordered this monitor online, but upon arrival it has an uneven backlight or backlight bleed. Namely, moving an image from top to bottom of the monitor increases its brightness by about 15-20%, and the "blue" Windows desktop looks ... gradient.

I was wondering if I could bring my online-bought monitor into the store and would be able to exchange it for one with a more even backlight.

Thank you,
Aleksey.

My guess on this is either one back light ccfl is cracked/unplugged or the power supply is not running one side of the ccfl back lights, either way you should absolutely take it in for replacement asap

First my auto adjust buttons on my monitor are in german which i don't speak and two ... my monitor is in all red


all red, sounds like a bad cable connection or bent pins in the cable connector ends, visually inspect them. If the red you speak of is very faint and uneven it could also be the backlight in the monitor failing, but likely a loose cable

Need to buy a power cord to replace the original. Do you know where one can be purchased?


Modern monitors and desktop computer use universal power cables, so you should be able to go to an office supply store like Staples or Office Depot or an electronics store like Best Buy and ask them for a monitor power cable. It will have a three-prong end to plug into the wall and a six-sided end with three recessed slots to plug into the monitor.

If you want to buy online, monoprice.com has grest prices on cables.

Good luck.

It sounds like your backlight isn't working properly. LCD screens have backlights that illuminate the colors produced upon their surfaces, so that you can easily see the screen without an external light source. In your case, it sounds like your backlights either aren't cailbrated, are damaged, or were produced unevenly.

There is most likely not a fix for this, though most all LCD screens have some form of light distortion. My own LCD screen is slightly brighter around the edges, where the backlights are located, but this is only noticeable when displaying a completely black screen.

I was told that the backlight on my monitor was burned out. Can this be replaced without having to send it off somewhere? Where can the replacement light be purchased


First off it could be the backlight bulb or the LCD inverter. I would try the LCD inverter first it will cost about $25 and is easy to get to Take the face plate off around the monitor and the LCD inverter is at the bottom. It looks like a strip of circut board with plastic coating over it. Most of the time it is the LCD inverter.

But if its the Backlight bulb you might be able to take it to a local tv repair shop. you can order the backlight bulbs online but they are gragile and tricky to replace. you have to seperate the layers of glass on the screen abd the backlight will be at the top inbetween the layers of glass. If you do decide to do make sure to wear rubber gloves because the oiles from your fingers will get inbetween the glass layers and cause foggy spots when you put it back together.

Hope this helps

IMac 24 screen - no consistancy on colour


Not sure about that .... but you are the customer... keep talking to them until they get it right... or ask why they are not offering a replacement monitor as that one sounds like a lemon.
