Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen goes black and power light goes out after a few minutes

I have had this monitor for about 14 months now, no problems until now.

For some reason it just seems to turn itself off, the screen goes black and the power light goes out. The only thing to make it come back on is to unplug it for a while then plug it back in again, and then it will only stay on for a few minutes at most.

Screen goes black, power light goes out (not yellow but out completely), any thoughts?

    Would it actually overheat within seconds of coming on like that? Sometimes it will come on for a couple of minutes, other times it goes off within 30 seconds of plugging it in.

    No, the room stays at between 72-75, there is no ambient heat at all other than from the computer itself, but that is sitting on the floor and the monitor up on the desk.

It would seem that one of the internal components has failed / overheated Dont open the rear of the monitor !

if pos drop it into your nearest pc repair shop and have is serviced it may just need cleaned to free it from dust build up
on the inner parts this may be causing the unit to over heat

    yes it's possible for the unit to overheat very quickly



    even more so with it being intermitent that way it would



    depend on the ambient temprature around the unit (does it do it more so when the heating is on or the room is warmer ?)

DS240WB worked fine but seems now not recognizing signal and fails to turn on


The reason why your monitor might not be recognizing a signal is because the graphics card in your pc might not be correctly plugged into a pci slot or your internal graphics may have a short somewhere. If the monitor turns completely off after it cycles Then it might be an internal problem with the backlighting in your monitor screen

ViewSonic 19" flat screen monitor goes black - intermittently


Hi,
There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

HP Pavilion f1703 screen goes suddenly black


After reading a number of posts regarding this problem, I disconnected the speaker from the screen electric outlet meant for this purpose, thinking it may have been pulling a bit too much amperage to the detriment of the screen. I am going to hook a small transformer to feed the speakers directly thereby bypassing the electric feed from the screen itself. Hope it continues to work. I will let you know if it doesn't.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

HP mx705 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor vertical goes bad


While it is sounding like a hardware problem. I'll throw in my 2 cents. Have you check the cables from the power to the source and from the monitor to the computer. Just make sure those aren't loose. One other thing...you mentioned you turn off the computer "afterwards" then it fixes itself. Is the fix for longer than it turns on at first? or does it stay on longer then goes out? Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

LCD screen goes black repeatedly


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.
