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.

Montior goes black i turn off the monitor and turn it back on i can do about 2 things and screen goes black again repeat this as many times as i want. Gateway FHX2300 monitor


My monitor has been switching connections on me randomly. Hit the menu button. The one to the left of the power butter when facing the screen. Hit the left arrow twice then hit the menu button again. This will open up the screen where you can choose one of three inputs. I'm going to assume that it is on the incorrect input so use the arrow keys highlight what input you are using and the hit menu button again and your screen should return to normal. Mine only does this randomly when it goes into screen saver, hibernate or sleep. I don't know how to permanently get it to stop doing it though.

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.

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.

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!
