Having problems with your Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor ?
My monitor has no picture and a flashing orange light
Koakes898, Here is a clue!! Have you seen the new style Curlie-Q compact fluorescent (CFL) screw-in light bulbs at the nearby Home Depot or Menards. Can you imagine them having long, thin, straight tubes and providing WHITE LIGHT on the opposite side of the screen of your FPD2275 display. If the "switch-mode-power-supply" detects a Fault in the cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" "electronic ballast" circuit Called an "INVERTER" it goes into SHUTDOWN mode to try and save itself from self destruction. Visit YOUTUBE and search out video clips (8-12 min run time) on "LCD disassembly" FYI !! I'll bet your monitor is in the top 2 types of power supply failure modes. Then you will Probably be able to decide on what to do with your monitor. Trade in for new, or BUY new and repair old to keep as spare. or try to do cash+ old swapout with Gateway for a same model-Refurbished. You do have a few options. Last option is attempt repair on your own if handy with soldering pencil and solderwick and solder. Lots of stuf on the web, you just need to do the search!!
