    There is no component named a 'light capacitor;' try instead telling us what problem you are experiencing.

Please clarify 'LIGHT CAPACITOR'?<br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:</span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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: <a rel='nofollow' href="http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums">http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums</a></span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.</span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'"><a rel='nofollow' href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague</a><span style="mso-tab-count: 1"> </span></span><br /> <span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'">Capacitors kit: <span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span><a rel='nofollow' href="http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/">http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/</a><span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>he can make you a set of caps for you.</span><br />

SOURCE: Gateway LP2207 Monitor comes on with Gateway icon but will not stay on.

Its most likely the light capacitor it can easily be fixed but if your going to buy one anyway dont go back to gateway they offer poor technical support
by light capacitor i mean the capacitor giving power to the light

HOW DO I CONNECT A GATEWAY LP2207 TO GET THE AUDIO TO WORK?


Some monitors do not have speakers (my HP monitor does not). The sound has come out of some external speakers attached to the tower. Or maybe you need to access the monitors on-screen menu to turn the speakers on (if they have speakers). Or maybe you can access the monitor speaker control through the PCs Device Manager option (this is where all external components attache to the PC can be viewed, and sometimes changed).

Gateway LP2207 64 bit drivers


If you can't find the drivers anywhere else, do this: There is a UL Code listing on the back on the monitor's electrical ID tag on the back label. It has a number on it: UL (number). Go to the UL site and look up the number, it will tell you who actually made the monitor for Gateway. (Gateway doesn't
make monitors, it rebrands them.) Go to the mfr's site and download drivers for the monitor of the same size as yours using the 64 bit drivers. It will take a bit of slouthing, but can't be done successfully. (Ex. Sampo is actually Hitachi.)

I have a Gateway LP2207 Monitor and it will only turn on for 2 seconds then turn off. It was running fine originally until I went to lunch, came back and the monitor was black. I took the advice on this...


It sounds like your original problem was indeed a power issue that was having trouble keeping the lamps on. Replacing the capacitors was a 50/50 shot at repairing the problem and it sounds like in the process the monitor is now completely dead. The click is the lamp attempting to fire.
While you may have connected the cabling incorrectly I can not find a schematic for the inverter board to clarify what goes where. I also know that you should replace all the electrolytic capacitors as well as the ceramic capacitors as unseen damage may have occurred to them as well.
