20 Most Recent Relisys RLT1720 17" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers

Well my Acer AL1711 finally gave up in as much as the screen flashed briefly at switch-on then went blank, regardless of brilliance setting so I decided to take it apart and try to fix it. The good news is that IT WAS NOT THE LAMPS that I feared in my earlier post and was easier than I had ever dreamed! First allow a good period of time for the internal components to discharge before starting. Remove the plastic clip at the base hinge to expose 4 screws - remove all four to release the stand. Then remove the 4 black cross head screws that appear to hold the back on, they do but there is more to do. Carefully tease the silver surround away from the case, best to start in the centre of each side and finish at the corners. There are many plastic clips to release before the surround comes away. Now remove the four cross head screws holding the pushbutton switch circuit board. The whole assembly can now be removed from the case and reveal a metal cover held by 2 SHORT (remember that!) SHORT! threaded machine screws. These once removed will allow the case to be slid away from the holding tabs located down the edges of the cover and removed. Now unplug the connectors from the board that has the mains input connector attached to it. You will see a heatsink with 4 electrolytic caps above it. Silly ACER designers, have placed the capacitors so that they get all the heat from the heatsink! Yes folks, the capacitors are above the heatsink when the monitor is in its normal operating position! So all the convected heat dries them out, nice. So the fault is due to a silly design error! Replace all 4 capacitors, two of them are 1000uF at 16V and the other two are 470uF at 16V, all radial types. Try and get capacitors with the highest operating temperature, at least 105 degree types and remember these are polarised, make sure you connect the capacitor + wire to + on the circuit board. You should have no problems with re-assembly but don't put the wrong screw where the short ones went or you are liable to see it come out of the screen LOL! Most important - - Don't forget the screw holding the earth tag to chassis. Good Luck, you will be amazed how much brighter the screen is now!

When it have this kind of error is a problem of the powerboard.
Anyway you must open it and look at the all capacitors and if are them inflated, if them are inflated must change them.

But can be a problem with inverters... control the transistors - MOSFET on the powerboard.

Good luck!

Maybe that site uses software that your machine is not up-to-date on. Make sure all your software components are up-to-date (OS, Motherboard Drivers, Video Card drivers, Browser, Java, Flash, etc.)

if it does this without it being plugged into a computer then the horizontal hold is out on the main board of the lcd.
if its ok w/o a computer connected then check the cable an pins, connect it to your laptop to test your computers video out issues.

On the Proview 468 and possibly the PL-456s and the PZ-456if you look at the end of the VGA chord that you connect to the back of the computer right in between the two screws is a power connector for a 12 volt power supply this is for the 468 I hope this helps with your dilemma on how it gets power. tjbraya@yahoo.com

If you got a white screen, then you need to replaced a new AD board. AD board is a piece of component that you plugged your VGA or DVI cables to the monitor. Good lucks, Have a nice weekend!

Please check with external monitor. It will help to find out the issue.

The interference may be another electrical item, for example a tv or speakers, turn off anything close to the monitor and check that there are no bent pins in the pc to monitor VGA cable and that it is not interfering with any electrical cables to see if the problem is illiminated.

Sorry this wont help you much, but may put you out of your misery trying to repair it.
The LCD panel has failed. In particular the driver tabs that connect to the physical panel have failed and there is no way to repair them.
The only soloution is to replace the entire panel, a cost that would be close to if not more then a new TV of the same size.
I would put it on Ebay for parts (powerboard, logic board etc), and use the money towards it's replacement.

First place to check will be the power supply section, look for bad caps with bulging top first, post back what you see so we can guide you more, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
