VGA or DVI cable, this cable has approx 1" x 1/2 inch blue or white ends and should connect both to the monitor and to the computer to transmit the video signal between the two.

Gateway blank screen


Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

8. If the same pink line shows when you hook it to another computer, it's a problem with the monitor.

I have a Gateway T-6330u notebook. I have had problems with the battery cord before where it plugs into the computer. A piece broke off from the battery cord and was stuck in the computer. I talked with...


Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

Lcd monito fpd1830 is not showing the display


If the indicator light is on but black screen, then replace all fiur caps (100uF 25vdc) with on single cap form DIGIKEY PANASONIC FM or FC, it muat be LOW ESR type! (this is very common problem, I fixed about 30 of these already)
See my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Gateway%20FPD1830/

The caps look OK but have high ESR as shown in my albums.

Hook up to the CPU


Two cables are needed, Power and Data signal (VGA). Most monitors take the same type of power cord as computer power supplies. (Some computers will allow you to plug in a slightly modified cable that will power the monitor off the computer's power supply. This cord has similar ends on both sides (with the prongs inside a rubber housing). The only issue with this is it makes the power supply work harder and thus can fail sooner.) Most computer supply shops (online and brick-and-mortar) will have the power cables, if you don't have extra cables hanging around.

I hope this helps.

It can be bad caps in the power supply, bad inverter circuits (check the green color fuse (F1, 4A 125V) close to the heatsink and a trim pot), bad inverter transformers, bad lamps.
You open it up using flat blade screw driver starting along the bottom edge of the case. Post back what you see insdie so we can guide you further.

Dell 17" lcd manufactured 2004 CN-0F5035-64180-48G-1X2S wont turn on. power button flashes green, no display will come on. can i get a repleacement from dell? i bought it from a friend.


Dell will not give you a replacment since you were not the one whom purchased it...if you were they would only give you one if it was still under warranty.

Can you try hooking it upto another tower to see if the monitor is at fault and not the PC.

Did you friend show you that it was running before you bought it. Perhaps he sold you a monitor that was about hit the end.

Monitor works on and off


After usual overheating the capacitors, the weakest spot in FPD1830 are four chip resistors located in the inverter board a bit above the middle, you can recognize them as they are bigger than others and located all four in one row. Holding by tweezers simply re-solder them to get rid of micro-cracks in the tin between pads and resistor contacts.
