Having problems with your Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor ?

Have a problem w/ a Gateway FPD2275 W. When I

\015 Have a problem w/ a Gateway FPD2275 W. When I turn the computer on my display is black but can see the homepage shadow in the background. What can I do to solve this problem\015

Answers :

This is a common symptom of the backlight failing. Without the backlight, even though the display panel still works you can't see it. The backlight lamp itself is probably OK. It's the inverter circuit that provides lamp power that goes bad.

The usual cause is failure of parts called capacitors in the power supply section. It is possible to open the monitor (not always easy, but possible) and check the capacitors. Often they look bad with bulged or split tops or leakage at the bottoms. Replacing them with parts of the same capacitance rating and slightly higher voltage usually repairs the unit. I've never worked on this particular model, so I can't tell you specific parts. But there are a lot of sites with information on repairing different brands, so a search on the Web may help. There are also youtube videos for some models showing the whole procedure.

Emachine beeps Hey, we just got a new emachine and we have the same problem! We got it mid/end of April but were in the process of moving so it stayed in the box till about a week ago.
