Having problems with your Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor ?

Gateway FPD1975W Makes Trickling Sound and Goes Off

\015 Ok, this problem happened yesterday. When I try to turn on the monitor, it makes a sound and a few seconds later, it goes off. Everything seems to be good. The wires are plugged tight, good power supply. I've been using it since March 2007 and this is the first problem ever encountered. What could be wrong? Would I have to replace it and buy a new monitor? Please answer. Thanks\015

Answers :

I have repaired similar FPD models. I have one of them on this very desk.
The GatewayFPD models develop problems after a couple or more years of use. Therepairs are fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverterboard in the back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be470 and 220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 10 16 or 25volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heat issuesand the currents they have to filter. Replacement of the capacitorsusually restores operation. Use capacitorss of the same ratings as original for replacement.

Be advised, turning the monitor off when you are not using it will extend the life between these repairs.

Hope you find this helpful.
