Gateway 19" lcd color monitor, product no. fpd1960 model no. 900g


Hello,

The most common cause of power up issues with the Gateway FPD1960 monitor is a failure of the filter capacitors on the AIP-0100 power supply board in the unit. Here is a link to repair information for that board.

I got a Gateway LCD 900G monitor, it keeps flickering and making hissing noises, what can i do?


Flickering could be a loose power connection but the hissing is indicative of a potential short. for your own safety, I'd get this to a TV type repairman asap.

My monitor power on then cut off what can i do


Hi there,
I had the same problem with the exact same model of Gateway 19" LCD. Likely this is the same issue you're experiencing, and I hope you're able enough with a multi-meter and soldering iron to fix this issue, or willing enough to tear this thing down to its components and at least try to fix it.... otherwise you have a fancy dead-weight object on your hands/desk.

In my case, the 5V power was fried so I actually inserted a 5V 2A power supply inside the monitor housing and soldered the +5V and GND leads to the marked connector pins that connect the power board(larger) to the vga signal board(much smaller). I stripped the guts from the 5V power supply so it would fit easier, and then stole power from the 120v monitor input and directly wired that to the wires that were hooked to the 120v power supply prongs(after removing those prongs as well). The monitor looks and functions as if it were brand new, there's nothing extra hanging out and no bulges anywhere. It works excellent.

Aside from my more-so hackful approach, here's some links and quotes, from other sites, from people who know what components to replace on the power board and still achieve a well-working end result.

Russ said... Thank you Michael & Germel & everyone else for your help. I replaced the 5 470microfarad and 4 220microfarad caps on the FPD1960 and it works again. If your in the Metro Detroit area I can perform this repair for $60 onsite.

Gateway 900G does not stay on, has power


the_princes, On the rear side of LCD screen that you look at are two each long, straight, cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes that need to "LIGHT-UP"and provide pure WHITE light to be reflected through the LCD glass panel that you look at from the front side! If you don't have any luck with Gateway providing warranty service or doing a swapout with them, then you should possibly look into having it Refurbished by someone locally in your area. I highly recommend that you go to youtube and watch some video clips of LCD MONITOR REPAIR to see exactly what you are getting involved with. When making a post to tthis site you should always give some "history" along with the trouble "symptom" such as how old is unit and approximate total amount of "ON" time the unit has. I hope you can use the info provided. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com Bye for now.

IC Power 19'' LCD-Will not Power Up- No Lites.


This is a follow up to my last submission about my discovery of bad caps on the FPD1960 LCD flat screen Gateway 19" computer monitor. To recap: After two and a half years of excellent graphics quality, my monitor suddenly went blackout. After pushing the power-on button, the screen would come on for 1-second, then go black. Repeat, again and again, same result; comes on for 1 second then blackout. THE REPAIR: After carefully but forcefully prying open the case, I unscrewed and unplugged then removed the screen and set it aside, then unscrewed and removed the power supply board. Sure as shootin, bulging (and slightly leaking) capacitors were immdiately apparant on this board. That other fella's submission was right on target. Search Wikipedia for "bulging capacitors" to get the inside scoop on this widespread problem. Major manufacturers are well aware of this issue, but fortunately for them it occurs some 2-years out'a the box, and after the warranty expires. This is one time I wish I'd bought the extended warranty! Anyway, I finally got my 5 caps from Ebay in the mail today. Specifically, they are 470uF 25volt 105-degree (use only 105's because some are right near a power transister heat sink---so I'll bet they get mighty friggin hot. After carefully replacing the old caps with the new (you'll need a solder ****** along with your solder iron), I reassembled, powered-up, and began to thoroughly enjoy the fruits of my labor. It's working like new once again. THE CAPS ON THE POWER SUPPLY BOARD ARE DEFECTIVE.

Monitor doesnt work


You can check the fuse on the monitor and replace it. In case the fuse is OK check the cable connector, display card on the motherboard.

Thanks

Gateway 19 in flat monitor Model 900G


Does the power button light up or blink at all ?
It probably is the power board/ inverter. I fix many of these.

To TeeKO, did you try moving it back to see if it was maybe a bad household receptical ?

Where do I buy parts for gateway fpd1960


I'm sorry to say that in today's electronics devices, there is not much support anymore when It comes to service parts.
In many cases the same boards have to be fixed if you want that device to be functional again.
