1. CRT or LCD? 2. Do you have an image of any kind for that 45 sec.? When it drops out after 45 sec, do you have any strange behavior as you look at the screen (colors, blinking, lines, squiggles, noises, smells)? 3. When failing, does the power drop out (ON light goes OFF)? How long do you need to wait until you can turn it ON again? 4. What is the status of your screen saver/power saver? 45 sec seems pretty short but it's still possible. 5. What does the manufacturer's website have to say about this problem? What do other users have to say when you search for your model?
I know these are just more questions but your question is too generic to offer specific comments that might be more useful.
correodemie, Your ACER AL2016 will need to have it's "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter supply" trouble shooted and repaired. DIY repair cost less than $30. Out of warranty service $35 to $75, more if circuit board replaced. Read my and other techs FIXYA profiles to discover all the options you have for your BLACK screen symptom. Follow the links to other web sites for even more useful info. DO THAT before you do anything else. 12fixlouie
My screen developed exactly the same problem. It appears to be a hardwear problem associated with the screen it's self. continuity test is ok on the lead so I took it back to the shop under warranty and hey presto, the replacement works. I don't know what the problem is but there are a number of other folks on another thread with the same problem and their entries are dated May 09 too.
I have a Viewsonic Flat Screen - recently I turn it on and all I see is like tye dye colors across the monitor with a slight ghost images of windows trying to boot-up. What can I do to fix this. The monitor is about 1 1/2 year old.
