Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My gateway fpd1975w monitor will no longer turn on. The first couple of times, I unplugged the power supply to the monitor and then plugged it back in after 1-2 minutes and the monitor worked fine. Now nothing seems to work to get the screen to turn on.

The power supply may have finally died, I would inspect it for bad DC filter caps with leaking/bulging top/bottm seals first, then check for cold solder joints, burnt parts.

Gateway FPD1975W Monitor Vertical lines in the right side of the screen


Open the unit back up and check the cable that goes from the control board to the LCD panel and make sure it is plugged in securely. If this cable is not connected all the way it can cause lines on the display. Also while you are inside the unit check the capacitors on the power supply board. The tops should be flat, if you have any with bulging tops then you need to replace all of the ones on the power supply board. This can also cause display issues if the power supply is not putting out the correct voltages because of bad capacitors.

This is the strangest thing I've ever seen. I have a Gateway FPD1975W TFT Monitor and its always worked great. The other day it went into a sleep mode via windows, and now it wont boot up the input...


Hello,

Your monitor problem is causes by the power supply. What is happening is the power supply voltages are not stable, just enough to power the unit up. When you connect it to a video signal the power demands slightly increase and the power supply can't handle it. This is a very common problem with LCD after a few years of use. The issue with the power supply is the capacitors have started to fail. These parts are used to filter the output voltage and when they start to fail the outputs start rippling hence the problem you are having. Here is a link to a repair article that shows how to repair the Gateway FPD1975W monitor.

The monitor (Gateway FPD1975W) turns itself off after a couple of seconds. I have tried rebooting a number of times - same problem. When I turn the monitor off and then on again it works for a second or...


This sounds like the monitors power supply is failing. (if the monitor is truly right off) Use a flashlight to verify the back-light is not just the culprit. If you can see faint image in the monitor with the flashlight, then this would point tothe LCD inverter is failing. Its most likely the power supply board within the monitor itself. Typically It takes 3 35v 470uf capacitors to fix and a little patience to get apart. Do a bit of googling on "replacing the caps in a FPD1975W" and youll see what i mean. Cheers.

Monitor appears to be in permanent standby mode - - black screen and blinking blue power light. It is a Gateway FPD2185W monitor. It will not turn off or on. Unplugging and re-plugging changes nothing. ...


Look for bad caps with bulging top in the power supply. I would replace all 10 with PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY. Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Gateway FPD1975W black 19 inch LCD


most likely is the power supply in the monitor.
gateway LCD has a building power supply in the monitor. it supplies 38W to the lamp.
since there is no display, it tells me that there is no power to the monitor.
if try another monitor and it works fine. then the problem is the monitor. (dispaly lamp is good for 17 Years- according to the tech spec.) but the power supply is pushing too much power.
other vendors max power is apporximately 30W.

make sure there is nothing behind the monitor and has good air flow. Since there is no fan in the unit. it need to vent the hot air natually.
