    Hi, my email address in mtnquest@mtnquestinc.com, NOT mtnquest1@mtnquestinc.com. I submitted the later in error. I say this as I haven't received answer to my question and thought that this might be the problem.
    Thank you

Unfortunately, your monitor's probably gone - very well known problem with Gateways's monitors/TVs.

Usually, trying fixing a monitor doesn't really worth it and it's better buying a new one, BUT this company would repair your monitor for $98, as reported on this blog.

If you're looking for a "do-it-yourself-solution", kindly take a look at this. As USUALLY the problem is with the capacitors, I guess you'll find there all the information needed!

Best regards and good luck,
Pelu.

My screen turns black upon startup. For awhile when my screen was on, it would flicker on and off but remain on. Now, the only time I can see the screen is when I unplug vga cable then plug back in but...


You mention a VGA cable so I assume its a stand alone monitor for a desktop PC.

It can be repaired,this fault is usually indicative of a capacitor, maybe two or three bursting in the

a) Power supply.
b) Back Lighter.
or
C) Inverter.

As its 6 years old, I would suggest replacing would be the most cost effective resolution.

Hi

i recommend the following

1) if your monitor has a 3 pin kettle type lead, please replace and see if this sorts the issue, if it is hardwired then unfortunatley your monitor is faulty and will need to be replaced/repaired

Please leave feedback/vote if this has been useful

The backlight or inverter is going out on your screen.
Eventually it will just stay dark. You will need to replace one of the two if plan on keeping monitor.

If you find this helpful please rate so.

Thanks

Probable failed power supply. If you look at the screen on an angle after your system has finished booting and see faint images, it is the backlight or is associated high voltage power supply that has failed.
If you see no 'shadows' at all, then the main supply has failed.
Either one of these could be a separate supply since many manufacturers buy from specialized companies.
