Screws under the front cover need to be removed at least thats the way it was on my monitor. The front frame around the display is then pushed up about three eights of an inch and then lifted off. This will reveal screws that hold the display to the unit. There are wires that connect the LCD to the inverter board and to the video board. You can determine the inverter board by the larger wires. IT will have CCFL's on it. Google CCFL to get a generic picture. good luck.

My FPD2275W LCD Monitor will only lit up solid white light. I have turned it off, unplugged it and everything else I can think of. It didn't how any signs of a problem yesterday, just all the sudden today...


Solid white meas the T-CON board is not getting the signals or 5vdc feeding it from the logic board or it has blown fuse.
Check all the caps in the power supply and on the logic board first, be warning, this case is real hard to open and MUST BE REAL CAREFULE WHEN SEPARATING THE FRONT BEZEL FOR THE BACK CASE!

My gateway monitor flashes gateway logo then it (FPD 2185 W)


Look for bad DC filter caps in the power/inverter board.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Look for bad caps in the power supply/inverter board.

90% of my LCD repair are due to bad caps, see example here of what is involved in repairing the monitors:

Make sure to use good caps, PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY.

Gos black after 2-5 seconds, no picture at all not even with on the monitors own menu.


You may see very faintly that there is an image. The inverter or the filter capacitors are likely culprits. Open up the back of the monitor to get to the circuit board and if the capacitor is bulged out on top or leaking from the bottom, it is bad and needs to be replaced. They can be found all over ebay for under $5 with shipping per 5-10 caps. Hope this helps

Black monitor


Power light coming on and sound effects when you plug it in but no lighting of the screen is usually caused by the power inverter board having gone bad. Once in a while it is a bad bulb.

Ccfl inverter board


The most prevalent failure on these boards are the transformers and or the ic that controls the frequency of the lamp drive. More times than not you will find a bad transformer.
