Very very carefully! or you will break the ribbon cable and it is very hard to put the cable back in the socket. See my pictures here:

It will more likely to have bad caps, but if you want to change the CCFL assemblies, you will ahev to take the LCD panel apart which very hard to do also unless you have done one before.
Check www.lcdparts.net for lamps.

Hi!

The problem is not the setting on your monitor...The problem is the backlight inverter located inside the upper and lower edge of your screen..
It is busted. The backlight inverter is the light source responsible for the displaying image on your screen. If these were busted.. then the only thing you will see is black screen.

It is very risky for you to replace it by yourself if you don't have the knowledge and the right tools to open the back of your lcd..My suggestion is to bring your monitor to a credible technician to have your backlight inverter replace. if there is warranty for your lcd, please avail this.

Hope it help..

Much appreciated if you rate this solution..thanks..

Gateway Monitor goes blank after a few seconds after startup.


Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.

Here is a website explaining this kind of failure:

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

What kind of computer is it?

Gateway FPD1960 19" CD has a red tint to all oc screen when I turn it on.


Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.
