FPD 1760 Flat screen monitor

I replaced an old crt type monitor on my computer with a tft flat panel one this worked ok for a time but now after being switched on it works for only a short time may be ten minutes then goes black no information on the screen at all If I switch the monitor off then on again straight away the on screen information returns but only for a couple of seconds the computer is still running normally all this time I can continue the switching on and off process to enable me to shut down the computer I have tried the monitor on other computers systems it does exactly the same I have today turned down the brightness control to 50 on the monitor menu to see if this action does any good would be very gratefull for any suggestions The monitor is only fourteen months old

    I Have exactly the same problem. About the same time frame. When I firt turn the monitor on the sreen is visible only for a few seconds before the backlight goes off. The Display is fine other than that. I also have the same problem with a 17" Dell LCD.

Take a flashlight and shine it at the LCD screen while after it goes black. If you can see the screen images still then your backlight is the problem. Let us know what the results are and please don't forget to rate this post.

    Before giving up if you have a spare monitor or can borrow. That will let us know if its the PC or the monitor. If its the monitor then a trip to the repair shop for an estimate is probably the next step. If the spare monitor doesn't work then let us know so we can continue.

If you have the appropriate cable to connect the output port of the computer to the input port of the Flat Panel TV every thing will be OK. For optimum performance you might have to install the drivers for the replacement flat panel.

Why would the Gateway FPD 1730 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor turn on,,then go right back off,,if you leave it unhooked for a few days then it will work for a short time than quit again

This sounds like a typical Capacitor in the Power Supply fault. Some people take them apart and replace the capacitors, however I recommend that you get a "Quote" for repair, as these often "Chain Fault" and I have seen a lot of disappointed would be fixers.

Computer will power up, but FPD 1730 screen stays dark, says "power saving mode" How to cure??

Its setting problem just fallow this stapes for the same.
Go to Start > Control panel > Power options Properties >
Turn off monitor: Never
Turn off hard disks: Never
System standby: Never

Apply > Ok

Dell Flat Screen goes from good to bad

Check that the connection from monitor to computer are tight. Maybe disconnect and then reconnect tightly. The most likely problem if the connection if good is your graphics card. Most of the time these are embedded on your motherboard meaning the entire board would need replacing, some graphic cards are external cards that are easier to troubleshoot and replace. Try the connections and let me know. Is the computer older than the monitor, or were they purchased together? What is the warranty status?

Dark screen of Gateway FPD 1520

If you can see the screen display an image upon close scrutiny, it could be that the florescent back light is burned out.

Dell 1703 FPi 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel

you have snap frame around the screen itself use flat screw driver fine edge, theres about four locations that snap into slots work them away and remove frame, then remove screws on back will seperate ,you will have to remove monitor button panel board to, once inside, four screws around screen itself once in side,this will lead you to power connection inside main screen frame, the board and the connections

Lines across screen

The screen you have is almost certainly on the way out. This type of fault is in the Horizontal Flyback section of the Monitor. Usually components fault or age and change value, these lines are normally "Turned Off" so ya can't see them, that "Turn Off" circuitry is going faulty.. it will only get worse. I suggest a new, or 2nd hand monitor as they are so cheap these days fixing CRT monitors can be cost prohibitive.
