17" gateway notebook oiwer source

I have a Gateway notebook that is just over a year old. The computer went off and will not come back on. I contacted Gateway and they told me to remove the battery and harddrive, replace harddrive then wait 30 min replace battery and it should come on, it still won't power on. Contacted Gateway again and they told me to sent in for repairs, no other suggestions. Any ideas what it maight be? I am not returning to Gateway because I need the computer repaired asap as I use for work. Thanks

I think returning it is your best option. It could be a bad motherboard. See if they have an expedited option.

Try to connect the monitor to the VGA-output port of some other desktop or notebook computer. If it does not work, then it needs repair or replacement. If the monitor still under warranty:
* standard 1-year warranty from Gateway
* extended warranty that you may have purchased from Gateway
* extended warranty that some credit-cards offer for items purchased with that card
* extended warranty that you may have purchased from the retailer

???

If not, it's probably cheaper to replace a 15" or 17" or 19" monitor
that it would be to try to repair it.

I've had my monitor for a year now and last night my screen went black. It flickered a few time before it completely turned blank. If you look closely you can see my desktop on the screen but it is almost...


pmeyers843, If in fact your LCD is only a year old, I would first contact Gateway to see if they could do some sort of swap-out with your unit whoose switch-mode-power-supply and/ or cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube power supply (called an inverter circuit) has failed prematurely. Yes, this does happen to a lot of monitors of all brands not just Gateway! But it is way more likely to happen after 36-48 months into the life of well used lcd monitors that have lots of "ON" hours use! I also suggest you pay a visit to youtube and view some videos of LCD repair to show what are some of the components that typically cause a failure similar to your's. Get back to me if you need more info. I hope that this helps to solve your BLACK SCREEN problem. I'mlouie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com
Good luck. Bye for now.

What has happened is part of your back lighting circuitry has gone out. Yes it is repairable but can cost most of what a replacement monitor will cost these days. Check that out before spending the money. If the problem is only in the back lighting circuit then expect to spend about $100 for a replacement board.

LCD monitors lifespan depends on the quality. Normal use and you should get 2-3 years of reliable service minimum. The display itself is good for about 4000 or so hours of use or more. The problems that show up are always (well 99.99% of the time) are back lighting problems like you have experienced. You should turn it off by the switch when not using it as every hour it runs the screen save is an hour of usable life. Heat is not good for it so if your computer gets the dust cleaned out to keep it cool do the monitor at the same time. Once a year at least more if you smoke use gas heat and have pets.

Tube monitors have a much longer life but you have the size weight and poorer display to go with them. If you have to go back to a tube monitor don't go back to your 14 ask around and you should be able to get a 17 or 19 crt for free. Or expect to pay no more than $10-20 for one.

Green Light, no Display - Gateway FPD1730


I picked up a FPD1730 monitor for free which was just sitting out in my apartment hallway. I suspected something was wrong and sure e**ugh there was ** backlight, but I could see faint video when I shined a flashlight on it.

A quick Google search of the inverter model # led me to a German forum which suggested replacing the fuse labeled "F1" on the inverter board. I don't have a matching fuse on hand but I bridged the connection with a wire and sure e**ugh the backlight came back on. Short-circuiting like this is definitely **t 100% safe but if you can find a 4A fuse then it's a really cheap and quick fix.
