    We bought ours from Best Buy in 2006. Now we can only turn it on and off by the plug. When we plug it in the blue on button flashes and the Gateway symbol flashes on the screen. Very fustrating, any thoughts?



    I have tried the monitor on my Dell computer. I have pluged it into the manufacture port and the ATI Radeon video port on my Gateway. I have taken it to a local PC shop and they hooked it up, it did the same thing.

The tv suddenly goes black and the power light blinks red


Hi,

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

I have an LG tv/monitor which i use as my pc monitor for some reason the blue on light will flicker then the screen goes black for roughly 6 seconds why does this happen? and how can i solve my problem?


I'm not ENTIRELY sure, but it could be simply a problem with your display drivers. Since it is a TV, some older drivers won't recognize it properly; and for that matter some TVs simply aren't made to work with computers. I'd suggest updating your drivers to the newest version and seeing if that helps any. It only does this with your computer, correct? Not if you are watching TV on it or anything?

Gateway FHD2400 flickering / blinking / flashing on and off whether connected to laptop or not. Only had the monitor for about a year, and I've barely used it. I connect it to my Mac Powerbook, and after...


Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

Follow the directions and good luck!

Screen only stays on for 1 sec


Assuming you changed all the caps and did it correctly.
IF you get flickering, It could be a transistor on the inverter board.
OR !!! and probably more likely,
It could be one of the bulbs in the lcd itself is failing. It only takes one bad bulb to stop an inverter from firing up !! You can check them one at a time if you have another working monitor.
If you do unplug a good bulb from the good monitor and try each of the questionable ones, one at a time.
Doesn't have to be a gateway monitor to test it, just needs the same backlight plug.
