Question about Gateway FPD1775 (Black) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My gateway monitor (circa 05/06) FPD 1775 was never put in service when I got the original computer combo. I now want to use the computer with an older model Dell computer. The monitor powers on and stays on (blue light, orange light), but when I plug it into a computer (tried 2 computers, not gateway), the monitor turns itself off after a few seconds of start up screen. How do I get the monitor to stay on when it's plugged into the computer?

If you can see the screen display an image upon close scrutiny, it could be that the florescent back light is burned out.

wjfarm48, Sure sounds like a power supply problem. How old is it? How many hours of use? Do you understand what a switch-mode-power-supply and an inverter supply is? If not, then here are your options. Check with Gateway to see if there is a swapout program. You box up and ship them your monitor+cash, and they return a REFURBISHED same model with new CCF tubes and inverter/SMPS. When you box up the monitor, follow this lead. "A 3 inch thick layer of breathable air shall be the only thing touching the lcd front panel" Next option is find some local TV/Monitor repair guy who can get parts and or replacement boards/CCFtubes from Gateway. Last but not least, is to repair yourself. Not Recomended.. But do a search on lcd monitor repair or Bad Capacitors In LCD Monitors or Repair of SMPS in LCD/FPD Monitors. Also check for videos on YouTUBE related to lcd monitor repair just for your own info. Here 's what you are dealing with. The light that makes your FPD bright white is generated by Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tubes (2) that require 600-1200vac at high frequency that is generated by an INVERTER which gets 12-24vdc from the SMPS. Almost the same technology is used in the new style screw-in curlie-que Compact Fluorescent light bulbs. Only they call the inverter a electronic ballast. Anyway, thats about all the info I have. Let me know how you make out in you quest to get your LCD up and running again. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com BYE for now.

Like all things expensive, it depends what you do with it.
If you leave it on 24/7 then you shorten it considerably.
Turn it off when you leave the room, take some compressed air and clean the dust out once a month.
Make sure the monitor is off when you clean the front, use a dry cloth, if it's smeared with gunk, use the appropriate cleaner for it, not Windex. Pick up some nexxtech cleaning gel ($4.00).
You treat it with love and it will be reciprocated for years to come. Enjoy!

How can i reset my gateway fpd 1930 lcd


At the bottom of the monitor, there are some buttons. Pushing the right-most button (Auto/Set) will enable the automatic configuration to happen. This will "automatically optimize the monitor's image position, clock, and phase."

Gateway monitor FPD 1730: We have had it since


If the screen is black (ie there isn't any backlight) then the fault maybe the inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp ot the CCFL lamp is faulty.
