Having problems with your Gateway FPD 1830 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

If I Come Out Of Standby, Gateway FPD 1830 flickers, then black

\015 I used to have a large monitor, but my dad was getting rid of his Gateway FPD 1830 since he was upgrading. So I took his. I am used to keeping my computer in standby, but when I try to do that with this monitor, it doesn't work well. The monitor will flash on for a few seconds, then go to black. I have found that if I push the "Source/Set" button, the screen will come back for another few seconds. After doing this several times in a row, and opening up my internet in the second long glimpses I get of my screen, the monitor will stabilize and come completely on. Once the screen's on, it's on. I have no further issues with it. So, yes, it's usable. But it is such a pain and takes minutes for me to load up my computer! And remember :) I'm used to coming out of standby lickety-split! I'm so irked with this monitor, I'm about to plug in my old, clunky, huge, curved monitor again--even though it is so much bigger than this flatscreen--just to save me time when I start up unless you all can figure out what the issue is? When my dad used the monitor, he always had his computer boot up from being off, never used standby, and never had the problem. So I'm thinking, standby is the problem? Any way around this? Thanks!\015

Answers :

It's a bad back light inverter. These models are NOTORIOUS for them. It's a simple fix for a technician and not very expensive. I fixed mine about 2 years ago and it's still going strong.\015\012
\015\012You can purchase replacement inverters and if you're handy with a screwdriver you can fix it yourself.\015\012
