The backlight inverter circuits may have failed, check all the caps and the fuse in the power supply-inverter board first.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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

Why would the Gateway FPD 1730 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor turn on,,then go right back off,,if you leave it unhooked for a few days then it will work for a short time than quit again


This sounds like a typical Capacitor in the Power Supply fault. Some people take them apart and replace the capacitors, however I recommend that you get a "Quote" for repair, as these often "Chain Fault" and I have seen a lot of disappointed would be fixers.

Monitor goes blank


I was thinking about your problem, I just had a similar issue and the problem is that the inverter or the power supply with an embedded inverter had gone bad.

The reason it goes black is because the inverter fails to provide power to the LCD Display.

The only way to fix this is to open up the FPD:

*note these are instructions for the most popular FPD 1730*

1.there should be four screws on the back --> plus two large screws that hold the FPD stand and the Monitor together.

2.Open the back by pulling the cover off
Remove 7 screws holding the frame and the power button for the LCD

3.Remove two screws through holding a silver cover and remove cables.(pinkwhite) (blackwhite)
Please note where they belong before removal**

4.On the edges left and right are two screws 4 total ---> remove and remove LCD off of frame**becareful because the backlight Damaging can cause severe damage to your LCD panel.

5.Choose your model
Your FPD has 3 boards (power, inverter(backlights) Logic Video)
replace the inverter with well known good one

Your FPD has 2 boards(Power with inverter on edges, Logic Video)
replace the power board with a well known good one

6.Then do steps 1-5 in reverse order(putting your FPD back together.

I hope this is significant help

Screen going black, green LED staying on


Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
Easy Fix REALLY EASY FIX
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)

No Power On at all


What it sounds like is the Power supply on your FPD is bad. If its making a High Pitch Sound, A circuit or piece of your power supply is failing. It would need to be replaced in order to get it working.

Suggestion.
You can repair this easily if you have another FPD 1730 lying around that doesnt work you can replace parts, but its best if they were made around the same time because certain models have 3 boards(video board, inverter, power supply) But most have two boards (power supply, video card)
They are easy to replace and maneuver if you want to give it a try. Open the FPD and see what kind you have. If anything you might be able to find a part online.

Good Luck,
I hope this helps
