Most likely, its a power supply issue. Have fixed a couple of these by replacing bad capacitors on the power supply board. A bad capacitor will have the top bulging, not flat on top as it should be. The way to get the monitor apart is a little tricky. You will need to remove the screws around the top, sides, and bottom, Do Not remove screws on back in the middle. These screws hold the metallic pan that houses the power supply it's self. I used an orange pealer from Tupperware to pray the front face plate away from the back. You can use a screwdriver, if you don't mind a little marring on the face plate plastic. It's not easy removing the front face piece, lots of interconnecting plastic locks all.around the front face plate. Using your pry tool and pulling (you'll need to use a little muscle) to get the front off. Once face plate is loose, you'll notice the screen is connected to the power supply, one in the middle usually can be pulled and disconnected using your hand. I suggest taking pictures before removing the other wires holding the screen to the power supply. At this point, the front plate is removed, and the screws holding the the screen have been removed, wires disconnected, and power supply in view. Best of luck

The most common problem with the FPD1960 is a failure of the power supply board pictures here.2_21_2012_5_30_36_am.jpgThe capacitors overheat and bulge causing them to fail. If you can solder then you can do the repair yourself.

The most common cause of flashing or wavy display is a weakened or failing power supply caused by bad capacitors. This is easy to repair.

Elbtax,
Click start > right click on "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > Display adapters > Right click on your device and select uninstall and re boot your computer. Windows should pick up your adapter and re configure it automatically. This method should Fixya!
Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

More likely to be either the power supply due to bad capacitors, or bad backlights inverter circuits, it will require in-depth troubleshooting.
Please read my guide first if you want to DIY repair.

Make sure to check the cable connections. Most of the time this happens it's because your wire is loose on one end. If they're all good, open the case and check your video card connection (if onboard graphics, ignore this step). If none of that works, try updating your video driver. You could also try hooking a known good cord up...If STILL none of this works, I would suspect a problem with your monitor.

The PC video resolution is too high, native resolution for this monitor is 1280x1,024 @60Hz.
It does not make sense thogh thst you get blank sceen on safe mode, you may have video card set up problem. Does it work with another PC? Cna you try another monitor with thsi PC?

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7b_nTaZYcU&feature=related

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.
