Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
It starts working again when I push the power cord back into monitor. Tried a new power cord and the problem persists. Could it be the monitor is just giving a tight grip to the power cord anymore?
My 20 inch Dell UltraSharp monitor randomly looses
power and the screen goes black. All the lights stay on
green. By pressing the off/on button to OFF, them pressing it to ON, the monitor comes back on and works fine. It doesn't matter how long I leave the monitor off.
It worked for two weeks without a problem. Now it is going off about every few minutes.
Is your monitor a CRT or LCD type. For CRT type information follows. In most cases your simptoms indicate a problem with the High Voltage or blanking circuits. Caution the High voltage can be as much as 40,000 volts and even unplugged from the wall the picture tube can continue to hold voltage (enough to hurt you). Do you here a snapping sound from the back of the crt. If you do the high voltage is shorting out and the protection circuit is turning off the high voltage. If you do not here sparking another possible cause is a faulty capacitor in the protection circuit or the flyback (high voltage transformer). Unless you are educated in electronic circuit repair this one is probable beyond your curren knowledge level. You can try taking the back off and cleaning out all the dust, but remember to stay away from the red wire that goes to the picture tube. Use only non metal cleaning tools. Good Luck
