Question about Gateway EV910B Monitor

1 Answer

Gateway EV910B monitor power requirements

I have a 19' EV910B monitor that I had bought in the USA. The electrical rating label says it can run on 110 to 240 volts. I am now in a country that uses 220 voltage. However, before I simply plug it in and fry it, does anyone know if there is a voltage toggle switch somewhere on the monitor? I had an older Gateway monitor that did have a toggle, so that you could use it in either a 110 or 220 voltage situation, but the toggle had to be set correctly. However, I can't seem to find one on the EV910B. Can anyone confirm if there is such a toggle switch or not? Thanks.

Hello,

A flashing power light indicates a failure of the power supply, this will also cause the white screen. Here is a link to a page showing what parts need to be replaced to repair the power supply board and get your monitor back running again.

Hello,

The dark or black picture is caused by a failure in the back light power supply. The problem can be corrected by replacing a few parts called capacitors on the board. Replacing them will require a little soldering but anyone can do it. Here is a link to a page that shows what needs to be replaced.

More likely to be either the power supply due to bad capacitors, or bad backlights inverter circuits, it will require in-depth troubleshooting.
Please read my guide first if you want to DIY repair.

Hi, I have a Polyview V293 LCD Monitor with a power supply output of 19v 3.42A. The power supply has failed. Most i have found being offered as direct replacement for this monitor have an output of 19v...


If the power adapter is a separate from the monitor then check the monitor's label on the back of the screen for the power rating.If the rating on the label is greater than 3.16A then I would not purchase this adapter.
I suggest you purchase an adapter with a current rating greater than what is stated on the monitor's label.
Check out this WEB site for power adapters - a 19Volt 90 watt = 4.7A power supply is suitable.

My Gateway 19 in model 900w monitor has hit the skids. Help !


Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

A 220 volt Amstrad monitor that i want to convert to use 110 volt


engagetek, This would be a very easy thing to do if and only if the label on the rear of the unit has printing similar to my GATEWAY LCD. It states as follows: "100 - 240VAC input 50/60hz." If your Amstrad unit's label reads "220-240VAC 50/60hz only, then you will need to reverse engineer the "ac to dc" power supply, be it an old "linear" or a modern "switch-mode-power-supply" type. You did not state what type of monitor technology your Amstrad is. CRT, LCD, Plasma,???? I would guess that it is a CRT type. Well anyway, I hope the info was of some use.

Light flashing


Try another monitor on your computer to make sure that your computer is booting up properly.

If your running into the same problem with a known good working monitor then the computer is the problem.

If the known working monitor turns on then you know the original monitor is bad.
