Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television
I have a problem similar to the 'capacitor' problem, but also have a problem with what may be a MOSFET transistor or something (voltage reg??!)
There are four T-220 package components, the back of the board is burnt, one is cracked Two have BE 5235 and D408 on them, two have BE 5X24 and D405. One is cracked and has a small bump in the case, I would imagine this part is smoked.
A couple caps are bulging, will replace them while I am in there. Any source for these parts??
Hmmmm.... my board doesn't look anything like yours...
what is the manufacture date of your monitor? Perhaps it's an earlier version?
Here's what the power board looked like inside mine (with the new capacitors installed):
I replaced all my capacitors and it's been working great... BUT it blacked out again this morning.
I cycled the power cord and it came right back on, so I don't know what to do next.
I'm guessing the power regulators, but some of mine had their numbers sanded off.
Probably Gateway's idea to screw you out of fixing it yourself.

If any of you still have these monitors, and wish to sell them, i am interested in finding some to use as spare parts if i can’t get them working. send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have two of these that i have already repaired successfully.
Or if you would like to have me repair for you.

What it looks like you have there are Dpak (TO-252) transistors, I am
going to guess that they are 30 volt amp rated ones and 5 to 7 amps
Trick to finding them is maybe trying to identify the logo letters in front of the d408 number.(looks like 406 on the picture)
Other than that is to take a gamle on a standard dpak transistor. These are obviously toasted so it can't make it any worse !!
