    I think I have the same issue. The monitor flickers for a few seconds, then video shuts down. Power is still green. Turning it on and off multiple times sometimes brings it up -- and once up, it is fine, nless it goes to standby or is shut off. Then you can't start it again.

    When you Turn it on and then it shuts off, Does the power button led turn amber or stays green?

    Check, If its green do you see like a super dim display if you look at the monitor from a glare?

    Let me know what your answers to the above questions are, and I can help you out.

After usual overheating the capacitors, the weakest spot in FPD1830 are four chip resistors located in the inverter board a bit above the middle, you can recognize them as they are bigger than others and located all four in one row. Holding by tweezers simply re-solder them to get rid of micro-cracks in the tin between pads and resistor contacts.

I have a Gateway FPD 1830 Monitor. I have to turn it on usually between 30 to 50 times to get it to turn on. What is wrong, and how can I fix it?


The power supply, the inverter, or the lighting tubes may be defective. I would bet that you need some new capacitors in the power supply or possibly some transistors. Those are the two main failure points that cause the quick power supply shutdown. It detects overload and tries to save itself from total destruction by shutting down.
I bet on capacitors, especially if you never turn the power off but let it sit in standby all the time.

Complete power failure on gateway fpd 1830 monitor on last bootup. no light on power button and nothing on screen . A fuse maybe ?????


Could be the fuse. But typically it is the caps on the output have failed.
Usually can find repair kits on e-bay and repair if you are experienced.

Monitor just stopped powering up one day. Is there a breaker or something?


There is main power fuse in the power supply module, but if the screen flashes on for seconds, then the problem is in the inverter board due to bad caps (very common in this model): http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Gateway%20FPD1830/

I have a FPD 1830 flat screen monitor not displaying picture


Send the monitor. It's a power supply problem. My 15.4" LCD has the problem, too, whenever I move the monitor down, it powers off, and the menu disappears as well, but I'm going to fix the screen.

Monitor won't display anything


I have repaired similar FPD models. I have one of them on this very desk.
The GatewayFPDmodels develop problems after a couple or more years of use. The repairsare fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverter board inthe back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be470 and220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 10 16 or25volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heatissues and the currents they have to filter. Replacement of thecapacitors usually restores operation. Use capacitors of the sameratings as original for replacement.

Be advised, turning the monitor off when you are not using it will extend the life between these repairs.

Hope you find this helpful.

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

Strange delay.


I'm having the exact same strange delay problem as you.
I fixed my delay when I too took my machine to your girlfriends. LOL!

No seriously.... you solved your delay problem yourself when you UNPLUGGED the power cord from the back of the monitor.

My guess is that when you unplug the power cord, the monitor resets itself. It's only a temporary fix, but, IT WORKS.

1. Turn the monitor OFF
2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the monitor
3. Wait 10-15 seconds or so
4. Plug the power cord back in
5. Turn your monitor ON........DELAY ELIMINATED.

The delay returns eventually, but, I just unplug-n-replug and I'm good to go again.
