Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Gateway LP2207 Monitor/black/clicking noise

\015 I have a Gateway LP2207 Monitor. Yesterday the power flickered in my house and the monitor went off and now it will not turn on at all. When plugged in it just makes a clicking sound every 5-7 seconds. Is this repairable?\015

Answers :

It may be fixable, I do quite a few of these though ebay. Power spikes can sometimes travel to bad places .

\015\012\015\012If you don’t have the startup\015\012sound when you plug it in, the main board may be bad.
\015\012\015\012If your picture was pinkish or\015\012dark at the top or bottom when it was working then you may have 1 or more of\015\012the bulbs failing.
\015\012\015\012If your picture wasn't pinkish or\015\012dark at the top or bottom when it was working, then it sounds like probably the\015\012inverter may have went. They are light light bulbs and have life expectancies\015\012on the capacitors.


\015\012\015\012To get to the inverter:
\015\012\015\012remove the stand
\015\012\015\012Take the 3 screws out of the\015\012bottom rear edge (these hold the front trim),and the 4 big black ones at the\015\012middle of the back
\015\012\015\012the the trim then unsnaps. {Be\015\012aware of the small ribbon to the power button board on the right edge} Start at\015\012the bottom and release the trim usually by gripping it on the lcd screen side\015\012with your fingertips and pulling outward, then work your way up each side from\015\012the back where the front trim meets the rear case. Work from the bottom to the\015\012top (a pocket knife or thin putty knife will help release the catches) You can\015\012also sharpen the edge of a credit card-(plastic is a little safer)
\015\012\015\012Then unsnap the top edge (rocking\015\012it while lifting helps)
\015\012\015\012Disconnect the ribbon, (Tiny latch\015\012lifts up on a hinge and ribbon slides out)
\015\012\015\012Once trim is off, remove the 4\015\012corner screws that hold the screen in. Then the screen will lift out with all\015\012the guts. You may have to use a screwdriver like a crowbar in the corners to\015\012start the screen to lift up.
\015\012\015\012You’ll then have to remove a bunch\015\012of screws including the speaker ones and the usb board ones and unplug the\015\012bulbs and wire to the screen
\015\012\015\012then the inverter is under the\015\012center area under the metal cover
\015\012\015\012Shout if you need more info.
\015\012\015\012If you email me a good picture of\015\012the inverter , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a\015\012visual.
\015\012\015\012Thanks Fran

Loud noise Hi. I'm hearing a loud noise coming from the tower of my Gateway 506GR tower this morning. I'm assuming it's the fan, which is a lot louder than normal. It sounds like it's just running really loud.
