My Fuji Plus 19" lcd monitor has been fine for the 15 months i have been using it, but now all of a sudden it keeps going black. i will just be working or doing something and the screen will just go black, but the green power light will remain on. the only way to get the picture back is to turn off the screen power, then turn it back on after a few seconds and it will come back on for another 30 seconds to a minute. The screen stays on for longer periods of time depending on how long i turn it off for (say overnight). I have tried reducing the brightness and made sure all of the cords are properly connected. any suggestions?
Make sure you test that the power brick is supplying power properly before you go down the road of buying a new one of them. I had it tested and it is working fine. The backlight in the monitor itself seems to have the problem. Good thing I didn't get another power brick.
Have you checked the light on your power supply? My monitor will go black and I noticed the light on my AC power supply was off. It was very hot so I unplugged it and let it cool down. When I plugged it back in my monitor worked fine until the power supply started to over heat again.

This indicates the LCD inverter in the display is dead. If you have any experience with computer repair, replacing an LCD Inverter can be easy enough; However, it may not be worth it for a 15" LCD; replacement inverters can cost anywhere between $15 and $40 - a decent used 15" LCD only costs about 40 bucks these days...
The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor. It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short). Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works. CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT. 17'' start at $120
What you mean by replaced the fuse? Are you replaced the capacitors on the AC Adapter. If so, Then it's not the only problems. The main problems is the backlight inverter needed to be replaced. Go check out my website @ www.3rd-rocks.com

Is this monitor and LCD flat Panel? If so this is due to a bad power supply, an inverter board going bad or LCD backlight bulb blown. When the backlight goes bad it gets just enough power to start up, but when it is on for a long period of time it goes black because the bulb is not stable enough to hold the charge because it is going bad. These bulbs can be changed, but they also can be costly!
Gateway has multiple part numbers for the LCD inverter board. Part numbers V01216400103, V01216400104, and V01216400105
are for the Profile 5 and 5.5 series with a 15" monitor. Part number V01316500104 and maybe others are installed in Profile 5 and 5.5 with 17" and 19" monitors.
Also the LG part number for the 19" monitor provided in Gateway literature is LM190E02-A4. There is no mention of the LM190E05 SL in the product specs I have seen. Gateway does make special purpose runs and does change components without much much notice though.
The definitive source of exact information is Gateway Tech Support. It may cost you a couple of bucks to get answers, but the value added to your system with a 19" vs. 15" screen to say nothing of the viewing comfort should far outweigh the cost of accurate information.
Good luck with your upgrade. Please keep me posted on whatever you try be it successful or not. I too have a Profile 5.5 with 15" and have been considering the larger screen upgrade.
