Look for bad caps as shown in the pictures, they (as marked by red color by me) should be replaced in a set since bad caps can look normal without bulging tops.

I have a gateway FPD2485W tft lcd monitor and i start my monitor and after it shows gateway it then goes black. How can this be fixed


bonannorl, Maybe it can be fixed. You did not give any history of unit. Only "now" stuff. Is unit covered by Gateway warranty? How old is unit? Date of manufacture? Did unit work fine connected to your pc and this black or black n blank screen thing suddenly happen? Is screen also BLANK? Have you swapped-in old monitor to prove PC is OK? Your CCFL back-lit lcd monitor no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation. Get into my fixya profile and read some of my testimonials and solutions to black or black n blank screen problems to help in your decision to DIY fix or contract out needed repair work. Most likely 2485w has problem with it's internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl inverter supply"!! Let me know more info about unit.

Viewsonic monitor -- VX2235wm LCD


avintagedish, Possible problem w/unit power supply. Go trade it in on new a new wide screen so the electronics technician in the repair area of the store can (with a little luck) put less than $10 in parts into your unit and maybe have a nice VX2235WM to give to his 10 year old kid to play games on. I sure hope you have a valid warranty!! You should verify that VX2235WM does same at KNOWN GOOD pc!!! Swap-in a KNOWN GOOD monitor to prove pc is OK!!! Read my FIXYA profile and learn "flashlight test" for "rude an crude" test of "switch-mode-power-supply" status. Follow the links you find there to other web sites for more info. Check to see if ViewSonic has a cash+old swapout for factory refurbished unit for premature failed units! I'm lmistyrel over on aim. and 12fixlouie on FIXYA good luck in your quest to fix unit. It can be fixed. Just do your research FIRST! So you don't get ROOKED if you contract out the work. Read, read, and read some more!! Visit YOUTUBE for video clips of LCD monitor repair and disassembly. FYI.
Bye for now.

May be your Video card. Try a different monitor to see if it is working. If not you may need a new video card.

Blank (dark) notebook screen after hooking up digital ext monitor


I notice a difference in the setup of the two monitors, have you installed the correct driver for the new screen?

Try F8 on startup to get into safe mode, this should allow you to use the default VGA screen, and to reset the correct monitor drivers.

About a problem in my viewsonic monitor


Hi

Actually the common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor is bad electrolytic capacitor at primary, secondary & inverter area, if your lcd using power adaptor test the voltage out, use analog or digital tester range 50v dc, if the voltage out is accurate dont be sure to your adaptor working good, open it and find bad electrolytic capacitor inside. That is common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor could cause of display flashing then back to black after few seconds. Suspect inverter area lastly mainboard.

Gud Luck!
