I had the same problem as a result of messing with the menu settings. Experiment till it fixes, the controls are at the bottom of the Monitor, and you can operate them by vigorously dusting the monitor with the power on.

It's probably cheaper to get a new monitor than it is to get a logic board. If Gateway can even get you such a thing.

Good luck on that.

Could be the fuse. But typically it is the caps on the output have failed.

I turn on my monitor and its just a white screen, nothing pops up.


Just white glowing screen as shown here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LCD%20panel/ ?
If it is, then check the power supply caps, ribbon cable between the logic board and the LCD panel.
The panel may be bad due to blown fuse on the T-CON board or not getting the 5vdc from the logic board.

Monitor goes blank


I was thinking about your problem, I just had a similar issue and the problem is that the inverter or the power supply with an embedded inverter had gone bad.

The reason it goes black is because the inverter fails to provide power to the LCD Display.

The only way to fix this is to open up the FPD:

*note these are instructions for the most popular FPD 1730*

1.there should be four screws on the back --> plus two large screws that hold the FPD stand and the Monitor together.

2.Open the back by pulling the cover off
Remove 7 screws holding the frame and the power button for the LCD

3.Remove two screws through holding a silver cover and remove cables.(pinkwhite) (blackwhite)
Please note where they belong before removal**

4.On the edges left and right are two screws 4 total ---> remove and remove LCD off of frame**becareful because the backlight Damaging can cause severe damage to your LCD panel.

5.Choose your model
Your FPD has 3 boards (power, inverter(backlights) Logic Video)
replace the inverter with well known good one

Your FPD has 2 boards(Power with inverter on edges, Logic Video)
replace the power board with a well known good one

6.Then do steps 1-5 in reverse order(putting your FPD back together.

I hope this is significant help

Gateway FPD 1830 18.1 in. Flat Panel Problem


Usually in these cases the power supply would be the issue, but you say the OSD window shows up clearly, So the LCD panel is good and the Power Supply /inverter depending on which your FPD has.
FPD 1830 should have 3 boards(logic, Inverter, Power) otherwise just 2(logic, power)

If it is super dim, the problem is the inverter. Or the Power Supply if the inverter is embedded

Otherwise what your issue is the logic board, if you can swap out that part for a good one, Chances are for sure that you will have a spanking new FPD working.

I've worked with these a lot. Im working on one right now.
I hope this helps
Wish you luck

Gateway FPD 1830 LCD Monitor


User "noclew1"
Your problem is the back lights are not being powered. There is a signal going to your FPD because the power light remains on, but the back lights are what helps support an image from the Front Panel Display.
The only way to fix this is to open it up.

If its got 3 boards inside((logic-->video, Inverter, Power)) The problem is the Inverter. Replace it.
If its got 2 boards inside ((Logic-->video, Power)) The problem is the power supply. The inverter is embedded onto it.

Simply replace the part with a known good one, and you got a spanking new monitor.


As for User Guest

Your issue is nearly the same issue when it turns off on you. But the doubling effect is from the power being supplied by an old or weary power outlet to an FPD. That can be the cause. Try different locations.

Well I wish you both luck and I hope this solution can help you with the problem.
Thanks

No Power On at all


What it sounds like is the Power supply on your FPD is bad. If its making a High Pitch Sound, A circuit or piece of your power supply is failing. It would need to be replaced in order to get it working.

Suggestion.
You can repair this easily if you have another FPD 1730 lying around that doesnt work you can replace parts, but its best if they were made around the same time because certain models have 3 boards(video board, inverter, power supply) But most have two boards (power supply, video card)
They are easy to replace and maneuver if you want to give it a try. Open the FPD and see what kind you have. If anything you might be able to find a part online.

Good Luck,
I hope this helps
