Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

How to unlock a gateway monitor. Tft lcd fpd1975w

2007 monitor, 11 years old.
what lock? name it? the OSD menu button dead? why not say what is locked, or does lock mean dead screen./???

hold the button. down for 10 + seconds and release.(most mon./s)
lets read your manual.... bingo there it is.

btw first google hit, amazing no?
no button lock on this model.
so what does lock mean,
power on the monitor it glows and shows a logo
and tells you there is no signal if the data cable is missing
if during (no PC) monitor power on , you press the OSD buttons
you will get a OSD menu, from the monitors cpu brain.
if not the monitor is dead.
many 2007 monitors up to 2010
have CCFL back lamp, and most are dead now.
end of life dead, the flash light trick proves this on an stuck black screen (see data, yes, CCFL are dead) RIP.

Dead pixel on lcd monitor

I used to use a REAL warm damp rag, (Water), and touch the dead pixel. See if I could bring it back. (Rag held underneath to catch ANY drips. Monitor UNPLUGGED from power)

Now I just let it go bye-bye, and purchase another monitor. One dead pixel leads to another eventually.

When the computer is turned on a No Signal message appears on the monitor.

the graphics card is possibly dead or the lead to the monitor is unplugged, also possibly the monitor is dead. Try another monitor first if you get a display then it is the monitor.

What does it mean by dead cells?

I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.
