Problem is your inverter on your monitor. replace it.

Some FPD's have them embedded on the power board. Replace that if its embedded.
Then your monitor should be working in great condition.

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.

The most common problem with the FPD1960 is a failure of the power supply board pictures here.
The capacitors overheat and bulge causing them to fail. If you can solder then you can do the repair yourself. Here is a link to a parts kit:

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

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.

Monitor will not power on - faint flickering when the power cord is plugged in. Gateway FPD1960 TFT LCD Color Monitor


i recommend the following

1) if your monitor has a 3 pin kettle type lead, please replace and see if this sorts the issue, if it is hardwired then unfortunatley your monitor is faulty and will need to be replaced/repaired

Please leave feedback/vote if this has been useful

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 ?
