From your description, it sounds like a failure in the internal power
supply of the monitor. Having the unit repaired is an option, but
the cost is likely to be prohibitive, around $95.00. I would recommend
that you upgrade to a newer display, and you should
be able to do so for less than $200.00. Again, from the description,
the monitor is where the issue is. I would recommend taking your display to some
other computer and
confirming that the issue follows the monitor and not the cables or PC.
I hope this helps with your issue.

I have 2 systems with the FPD1500 monitor. They worked fine until I applied
SP2. After SP2, they will not start. They come on OK, display the Windows
XP splash screen and then go into sleep mode when the system starts the
proper display mode before the Windows XP login screen is displayed. If I go
into safe mode and uninstall the video adaptor and restart the system, it
will start properly. After it comes up, it finds the video adaptor and
installs it and the session proceeds OK. I can reset the resolution and
number of colors to 1024x768 and Highest (32 colors) and things look fine.
However, when I restart the system, it hangs up after the Windows splash
screen and the monitor goes to sleep.
If I put it into VGA mode, it will come up OK. But once I change any
resolution or number of colors, it imediately goes to sleep.
I would appreciate any help you could offer.

A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not
putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple
as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.

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.
