    Since the fix you supplied was either a short or another problem, I could see no use in hitting F2 and see if bios remained on. I decided to buy a new monitor and forget about your suggestion of repairing it myself because I amm no electronic wizard.
    Thank you,

Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.

Here is a website explaining this kind of failure:

Hello,

A flashing power light indicates a failure of the power supply, this will also cause the white screen. Here is a link to a page showing what parts need to be replaced to repair the power supply board and get your monitor back running again.

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.

When i plug in my Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor, the screen stays black and the power button blinks. This goes on for hours without doing anything else. Suggestions?

If you have this connected to a computer and it happens,make sure the fault is not with the graphics card or port first. Test the monitor on another computer or laptop. Test and check the VGA cable.
If this is not the problem (ie the monitor will not work on another computer and another monitor will work on your computer), you are probebly having power capacitor problems and the monitor needs replacing.

The monitor (Gateway FPD1975W) turns itself off after a couple of seconds. I have tried rebooting a number of times - same problem. When I turn the monitor off and then on again it works for a second or...

This sounds like the monitors power supply is failing. (if the monitor is truly right off) Use a flashlight to verify the back-light is not just the culprit. If you can see faint image in the monitor with the flashlight, then this would point tothe LCD inverter is failing. Its most likely the power supply board within the monitor itself. Typically It takes 3 35v 470uf capacitors to fix and a little patience to get apart. Do a bit of googling on "replacing the caps in a FPD1975W" and youll see what i mean. Cheers.

I have a gateway FPD1975W tft lcd Monitor. It will not power on at all. I took the power cord from an exact same working monitor and put it in this one and it still will not power on?

Faulty power PCboard. Reasons and the exact problem may vary. Main components to check: The fuses, the stabilizing capacitors on the low voltage, the impulse transistor, the optron and the pulse width modulator (PWM) IC.

Fuzzy screen on Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor

With the pixels acting up and the monitor having the same problem on any computer that its connected to. The screen itself is bad and since there are no replacement screens for that monitor, you would have to buy a new monitor or get it replaced if its under warranty.

Dell E173FPb 17" TFT LCD Flatpanel

Video cards that can handle two monitors at the same time have cables with two plugs on the monitor end.

If your video cable has two plugs on the monitor end, try the other plug.

I have a problem with FPD1975W-UK TFT LCD Monitor gateway, out of frequency on the startup of computer, dark screen.

You set your computer resulation to do things to the monitor that it can't do. try to boot up in " Safe mode " goto >control panel>DISPLAY>SETTINGS and change resulsation. You may also "flutzz" with a software program that changes the frequence of the monitor.Find that program and lower the frequence.
