Gateway monitors not powering on

I have 2 Gatway model FPD1950 19in flatscreen monitors. The 2nd was working fine until my power went out and came back on seb=veral times. Concerned about a power surge, I went to turn my computers off. When the power came back on, I could not power on the monitor. The scrren stayed black and no power light. I of course changed, power cords, wall sockets and even with it disconnected from the computer, I get no green power light. Then I went to the other monitor (same model) and noticed that I could get no power with it either. This monitor was not even connected during the power outage and it previously worked fine also. Didn't use it only because it had 5 or 6 specs on the screen. I did notice that when I 1st plug in the power cord, the screen would become grey for a milli-second. Then nothing and still no gren power light. Any suggestions? Thanks -- Joe

    To CompuGuy44,
    No sir, If a light was on, it's off by the time I move my finger. Nothing happens but the split second grey screen. No amber or green power light at all on either monitor.

    Thanks

Do you get an Amber light on either monitor?

    You already tried different electrical outlets. You tried different power cords. You tried both monitors plugged and unplugged from the computer and you get no lights (green or amber) from the monitors.

    Can you hear the hard drive spinning up and the cd-rom checking on the PC? I just want to made sure your PC is working. It may not be the monitors.
    You could try the monitors at a friends house and see if it works over their.

This is the strangest thing I've ever seen. I have a Gateway FPD1975W TFT Monitor and its always worked great. The other day it went into a sleep mode via windows, and now it wont boot up the input...

Hello,

Your monitor problem is causes by the power supply. What is happening is the power supply voltages are not stable, just enough to power the unit up. When you connect it to a video signal the power demands slightly increase and the power supply can't handle it. This is a very common problem with LCD after a few years of use. The issue with the power supply is the capacitors have started to fail. These parts are used to filter the output voltage and when they start to fail the outputs start rippling hence the problem you are having. Here is a link to a repair article that shows how to repair the Gateway FPD1975W monitor.

I hope this helps you get back going.

Gateway flatscreen monitor

There is a problem with the power supply cable to this monitor. You need to have a new one put on. An easy way to test this is to get it to a shop so they can test the cable.

(2000) Sony Monitor capability

Only if you need the heat from it; flatscreens of the same size use around 1/10 the power of the CRTs. Since businesses could make up the cost of the monitor in less than a year of the power savings, in 2000, it's definitely safe and wise to go flatscreen in 2008.

I used a CRT to heat sandwiches in a place with no microwaves in 1993. Otherwise they're hulking abominations that kill species.
