Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
We are obviously on the same wavelenght. I did exactly that, replace 3 capacitors. However, I now suspect that it is the Inverter Slave Unit. This powers up the backlight, enabling light to the panel. Otherwise, I will simply replace the power supply unit. THANX 4 your advice.
Yep, i also realized that it was lead free solder as well (big difference than regular solder.) im going after the inverter 1st hope it solves my problem thanx 4 everything.

That is great news I really like to hear when people work on their own repairs, did you make sure the capacitors were soldered in correctly? there is a negative and a positive side if one is reversed they will not function, I have had experience when the caps are not the culprit the transformer legs usually have a bad output, and given a good transformer high output then the Chip is bad. I have found replacement main boards on Ebay there are several shops selling good guaranteed parts, I repaired my own Emerson's with a replacement board from a provider on Ebay, for 50 dollars. you should be able to check output on a power supply unit when plugged in.
