Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
When I turn on the power to the Monitor, the screen image comes on and looks normal, but only stays on for 3 or 4 seconds. Then the screen goes completely black. The blue power button is still on.
If I turn the power button off and then back on, it will do the same thing. The screen image comes on and looks normal, but only stays on for 3 or 4 seconds. Then the screen goies completely black. The blue power button is still on.
Sounds like classic symptoms of capacitor failure.
Old thread, but in case anyone else is still looking for an answer, the problem is probably bad capacitors on the power board. There was a world-wide problem with capacitors in the early 2000's that affected all kinds of electronics. For a good summary/review see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague .
Make sure the replacement capacitors are the proper size, specs (volts (v) & micro-farads (mf)) and temperature rated for 105°C. Make sure to install them in the proper orientation, they have a positive (+) and negative (-) terminal. I had 3 bad ones but replaced them all. It's actually quite simple and cheap if you have basic soldering skills. If you're not sure, research soldering technique and safety. Be Safe Out There.

Power light coming on when you plug it in but no
lighting of the screen is usually caused by the power inverter board
having gone bad. Common on the 17s due to their age is a bad bulb or more.
