Unplug, carefully open up whatever your model is and find out the model on the backlight and search for it on eBay or wherever; or search eBay using the Gateway model number as a guide; or decide how to better replace it with an LED module (lower power, better lifetime, etc.) and order that instead.

Hey, isn't this problem better classified as relating to your monitor, not PC Desktops?  What posessed you to call it like this?

Moniter stays on for just a few seconds & then goes off.


darladon2, 12fixlouie here. Your old 1530 may need some repair work done on it's ac to dc power supply / inverter board. to bring it back to life. It's thin fluorescent lamps (cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps (ccfl's)) are not staying "lit"!!! You will find out all you need to know, and more, if you do some reading of the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" or "buddymc" or my "12fixlouie" and follow links you find there. Also visit YOUTUBE for video clips of technicians doing cheap do-it-yourself repairs that actually work!. 12fixlouie

My fpd 1730 moniters brightness and contrast are terrible, and i cant get the controls to work


nonnie707, It is very possible that your monitor's internal or external (lay on floor) "switch-mode-power-supply" has a problem. Prove that your pc is working by connecting KNOWN GOOD monitor to your pc!!! If you are not electronics technician then you will need to question Gateway as to warranty service or possible swapout for a REFURBISHED unit if your unit is deemed as premature failure. May cost $ for swap. READ my FIXYA profile and that of other FIXYA TECH's (buddymc, budmrtn) for more options as to "what to do"!!! Remember, If very strange and weird things start to happen (occur) with "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD display, the first place I would investigate would be the units "switch-mode-power-supply" Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

There are more than one inverter circuit for this model. One is prone to have poor solder connections in the transistors Q8 & Q10.
Another can be repaired by replacing 2 1uF electrolytic capacitors near the center edge of the board between the lamp sockets.

No display lights


There are two possibilities, neither is really for a novice.

TURN OFF LAPTOP, REMOVE AC PSU AND BATTERY

Open the laptop lid and check the thin ribbon cable (looks like dirty yellow or orange scotch tape with several small thin metal lines parallel to each other). This comes down from LCD/screen, to the lower laptop case. It will have a connector that has a clip/release compressing the ribbon in the jack. Release it, and GENTLY pull the end out. Old laptops get oxidation here that causes your symptoms. Use a stiff piece of CLEAN denim material ("jeans" to "buff" or "polish" the bare metal at the end of the cable. Then insert back into the jack and press the clip down evenly.

Reassemble laptop. If symptoms remain, then it is your fluorescent tube. Laptops have VERY thin fluorescent lights, about 2-3mm in diameter. You need to open the LCD/SCREEN case, and take NOTES how everything is taped inside as you disassemble. On the sides or top will be (usually) two, sometimes only one illumination tube sealed in a channel. If it has black or grey color at either or both ends, it is burned out. You will need to remove it and replace it. If the tube is NOT burned out, then it is either the connections (check all, in the area/connecting to tube). Last, if nothing was loose then your inverter is bad. If it is soldered to the main board, your laptop is "toast". It is over, unless you can find a GUARANTEED used or new replacement for a price you feel is good. However, if the inverter is inside the LCD/Screen/LID, this can often be a plug-in unit that is replaceable, if you can find the parts (again, for a price you feel is worth it).
