Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
Hi!! i have a sceptre monitor model x22wg-Gamer from about a year, i've tried to connect my xbox 360 but nothing comes on he screen, surfing on the internet i noticed that this brand have a lot of issues with the High definition ports my warranty past over so i need to go with a technician to fix the monitor so my question is: there is a way to fix this problem (a cheap one)?
You could try opening the housing, with the power cord unplugged. Find the location on the circuit board where the HDMI/DVI port interface with the circuit card. Check the condition of the solder joints and look for signs of a cold joint or bad connection where the sockets connect. If you find bad solder joints simply resolder them with a low wattage soldering Iron no larger than 30 to 40 watts. Make sure you do not accidently solder any of the pins together causing a short circuit. Use the thinest 60/40 lead/tin rosen core solder. You can get this cheap at radio shack. If this is the case you will be up and running in no time.
Also I'm sure you already tried this but make sure you set the T.V. to get the signal from the proper port. You do this in most cases by hitting the source button on the remote or finding the option to select input source under the main menu somewhere. If you somehow over looked this, Try this first and your problem will be solved. If you need more help feel free to contact me. I will answer any of the questions you may have.
If you could please remember to rate this solution after we are done diagnosing your problem
