    Upon close scrutiny, I still see an image displayed, so I think it is the florescent back light. Can anyone guess what it should cost to repair?

If you can see the screen display an image upon close scrutiny, it could be that the florescent back light is burned out.

If you have the appropriate cable to connect the output port of the computer to the input port of the Flat Panel TV every thing will be OK. For optimum performance you might have to install the drivers for the replacement flat panel.

Sounds like you've replaced everything but the backlight itself!
If you have another working unit, connect this LCD panel to the working unit and see if it works. If it's still dark, you need to replace the FL tube (backlight(s) ).

Screen Problems


Why do you keep selecting auto configuration? You have the option of manual configuration, don't you? That is there in case the auto does not provide the results you want. So just set it manually to however bright you want.If it just will not go as bright as you would like, the remaining possibilities are aging backlight, inverter, or powerstrip capacitors which are all within your display.most re[pair shops will not even attempty a reiar of an LCD display, and if it turns out yours is deteriorating, you need to think about a new one. Unfortunately the problem with LCD monitors is that they just don't have anywhere near the life of a CRT.

Gateway monitor FPD 1730: We have had it since


If the screen is black (ie there isn't any backlight) then the fault maybe the inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp ot the CCFL lamp is faulty.

My Dell flat panel monitor flashes on and off what can i do to fix it...


You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Gateway FPD 1830 18.1 in. Flat Panel Problem


Usually in these cases the power supply would be the issue, but you say the OSD window shows up clearly, So the LCD panel is good and the Power Supply /inverter depending on which your FPD has.
FPD 1830 should have 3 boards(logic, Inverter, Power) otherwise just 2(logic, power)

If it is super dim, the problem is the inverter. Or the Power Supply if the inverter is embedded

Otherwise what your issue is the logic board, if you can swap out that part for a good one, Chances are for sure that you will have a spanking new FPD working.

I've worked with these a lot. Im working on one right now.
I hope this helps
Wish you luck

Screen going black, green LED staying on


Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
Easy Fix REALLY EASY FIX
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)
