Having problems with your Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor won't turn on, just keeps flashing the gateway logo on and off

\015 I'm thinking this happened because I have my computer on all the time.\015\012Well my computer is working fine because I can hear it start up okay in\015\012the background, but just that my screen won't start up. All I see is the blue power button on, and then the screen keeps restarting to show the gateway logo. I talked to some gateway technicians and they told me to bring it into a local store to have it repaired. I was wondering If anybody would know what is wrong with my monitor, and what I would need to do to get it fixed or should i just get a new monitor? Thanks.\015

Answers :

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. BLUE POWER BUTTON WOULD TURN ON-OFF-ON-OFF WHILE THE SCREEN FLASHED. THEN AFTER UNPLUGGING IT THE SCREEN WOULD FLICKER. GO ON EBAY FIND SELLER BAMMBAMMFRAN OR SEARCH FOR YOUR MONITOR. HE SELLS A PRODUCT REPAIR FOR $30(NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING). I SENT MY BOARD TO HIM. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR MONITOR APART AND SEND HIM THE INVERTER BOARD OR THE WHOLE MONITOR, ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE SHIPPING COST. HE WILL LET YOU KNOW IF IT IS FIXABLE(THE INVERTER BOARD). IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HE ONLY CHARGES IF IT IS FIXABLE. I TOOK MINE APART AND SHIPPED THE BOARD TO HIM. HE FIXED IT AND SENT IT BACK TO ME. MY MONITOR WORKS GREAT.
Unless there is inadequate ventilation, your monitor could remain on all the time with little ill effect. Actually turning on and off your monitor actually puts more strain on it then leaving it on all the time.

If the gateway screen is displayed for a moment and then just turns off, I believe the inverter board inside the monitor has broken.
What's actually happening is that somewhere in the board more voltage then needed is "leaking" in and the safeguards on the board turn it off to prevent damage.

I would go and get an estimate from a shop. If the price is within 30-50 dollars of a new monitor, get a new one.
