Gateway flatscreen monitor

Screen flickers a bit, then will go black, although the power is still on.  Switching it off and then on again brings the picture back temporarily.

There is a problem with the power supply cable to this monitor. You need to have a new one put on. An easy way to test this is to get it to a shop so they can test the cable.

What could cause a dell flatscreen monitor to go


Probably a bad power supply in the monitor. One of these days it will go black and stay that way.

If I Come Out Of Standby, Gateway FPD 1830 flickers, then black


It's a bad back light inverter. These models are NOTORIOUS for them. It's a simple fix for a technician and not very expensive. I fixed mine about 2 years ago and it's still going strong.
You can purchase replacement inverters and if you're handy with a screwdriver you can fix it yourself.

My monitor works for a little while, then goes black.


Your power-inverter board needs an overhaul.
Probably in need of the standard capacitor replacement.
OR
a bulb in the screen is bad (a bad bulb will usually show symptoms)
It will flicker, or will look pinkishish for a bit or dark in the middle top or bottom of the screen.

Monitor won't turn on, just keeps flashing the gateway logo on and off


Unless there is inadequate ventilation, your monitor could remain on all the time with little ill effect. Actually turning on and off your monitor actually puts more strain on it then leaving it on all the time.

If the gateway screen is displayed for a moment and then just turns off, I believe the inverter board inside the monitor has broken.
What's actually happening is that somewhere in the board more voltage then needed is "leaking" in and the safeguards on the board turn it off to prevent damage.

I would go and get an estimate from a shop. If the price is within 30-50 dollars of a new monitor, get a new one.

Black Line Across Screen


It's almost certainly a bad connection inside where the mylar strips attach to the LCD. If this is under warranty, you should contact Gateway. If it's out of warranty, it's not economical to repair this problem. It would require a whole new LCD panel, and - believe it or not - that part's cost usually exceeds the price of the monitor!
