Question about Acer AL2671W 26 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Acer AT3201W LCD TV

The only way to turn the set on is to operate the power switch at the rear of tv, sometimes up to 3 -4 times before a picture appears on the screen. The remote will operate the tv functions only for a very brief time after the powering up process, and then it turns into a paper weight.
I use the remote for the set -top box to control volume & channel selction.
To turn the set off, I have to turn of at the swith on the back again or at the wall. Can someone help me??

    Sounds all too familiar :(

    My 3 yr old Acer 32" is doing the same thing. Every 3 or 4 hours it freezes or dies and I have to try powering it up using the switch on the back. Eventually it comes back and is good for a couple more hours again.

    Having similar problems.

    Intermittently the tv won't come out of standyby. I have tried by both the remote and the switch on the TV.

    We mainly use the remote for turning it on and off.

    Did you manage to find out what was wrong with the TV.

    Were Acer any help ?

    I have given up on the Acer as my main tv since I can not rely on it to last through an entire program without crashing. It is now my back up tv in the bedroom and my main tv is now a Sony Bravia. Acer was no help at all except to apoligize for the problems, but offered no solutions.

    Same problem i also guessed the power supply. Seems like its having trouble getting the full charge it needs to power up the tv fully.
    I want to repair the power supply myself but im not sure which component to replace. im guessing either the mosfets or the capacitors? i know the component that needs replacing buzzes until it reaches full charge and then voila tv will come out of standby. When it doesnt work it just continues to buzz.
    any ideas? i hope together we can sort this and save having to spend £££ on a new TV!

    I have the same problem too. My solution is to buy a brand new tv after living with this for two years. Additional problems includem having a picture with no sound, having sound with no picture and rarely having both. You get more support out of a long lost dead relative than you do out of Acer.

I repaired my Acer by replacing the power supply from - $85

Acer would not sell me a replacement power supply.

Note: I needed to solder wires the new power supply to the old one,
the pinouts on the connectors on the new one would not fit the original.

Acer at3201w when i plug it in the amber standby light comes on. when i push the power button, the light turns green but nothing else happens. a few moments later it turns amber again and then goes off...

It may have gone into safety shutdown because it sensed short circuits in the power supply or in the backlight inverter board, you will have to look inside. Please read my guide to understand what the TV needs to operate.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Acer LCD TV At3201W will not power on. Technical support required, I have two sets and know of a third unit with the same issue. All these units were purchased at the same time. The unit will power on with...

The only thing i've seen with those Acers that generally cause that is that electrolytic capacitors in the power supply fail causing what you're describing. It would make sense that 3 TVs bought at the same time would have about the same amount of time on them, and are wearing at a similar rate.
Good luck.

1 Answer

I have ab Acer LCD TV AT3201W and in the manual it says that it is HDTV Ready. What does this mean?

HDTV ready means that your TV is capable of displaying a high definition picture. A standard television broadcast is shown in 480i. High definition starts at 720i. Only an HD ready TV is capable of showing a picture that is 720 or above. So, if a person wants to upgrade to high definition offered by their satellite or cable company, or they want to enjoy a new Blue Ray disk player, they have to have a TV that is HD ready.
