Question about Acer AL2416W 24 in. LCD Television

Open Question

Is there a known issue w/the signal processor on this model?

I'm getting intermittent display black-outs. The power indicator remains green, so that means it's getting power, and valid video signal. Most of the time, powering down to reset the monitor will resolve the issue; - but sometimes I'll need to leave it off for 1/2 hour before it'll start working properly again. A real BIG annoyance!!!
PS. Its not a backlighting issue, since I don't see any 'shadow pictures' during the black-outs, just no display.

SOURCE: Acer AL1716 (black) - Drops to No Signal -

Hi Eric,

Your post/description of "No Signal" and power LED changing from green to amber is indicative of just that - the monitor is not receiving any signal from the video card of the computer or the signal it is receiving is beyond its capability.

Just to verify that it is indeed the PC;'s setting that is the root of the problem and not an internal fault within the monitor, pls:
1. lower the screen resolution of your desktop's properties.
2. it may also be of help if you likewise lower the screen refresh rate.
Both of the above may be adjusted through the appropriate settings in your Display Properties.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back details of your video card (brand/model), display properties settings: a) screen resolution, color quality and Advanced/Monitor screen refresh rate.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

SOURCE: picture only comes on for a second than goes off.

The problem can be the 18 or 24vdc power supply is bad or the backlight inverter board is bad. You need to open it up.

Sounds like the monitor is dying, if it starts to die more and more often you will likely have to replace your monitor before it goes completely out. There are not many ways for a user to repair a monitor, unless the problem is with the computer, which you could test by connecting a different monitor to the computer for a while (if available). Hope this helps!

By using the method of jumping the black and light green/red pins on the data link connector of my 2005 fxsti, the codes 23, 32 and 33 are indicated. What do they mean ?


These alleged codes mean nothing to me. Why would you do this instead of having the bike properly valid current and/or histrical display DTC's on the speedo.

Monitor goes black - green light stays on


My screen is black, why do I not have a picture?
Answer Antenna is not hooked up to television.
  • Make sure that the antenna cable is correctly connected to the television. If it doesn't work there appears to be no signal.
Problem is caused by television broadcast
  1. Push 'INFO' button.
  2. If the screen shows channel number (1, 2, 3, etc) try another channel. Not all channels broadcast at all times.
  3. You may have a signal problem. Contact cable provider or local broadcaster regarding the specific channel.
Television is in EXT or SIDE mode, and there is no external source provided, so screen mute (black screen) is activated.
  1. Push NEXT SOURCE button on the remote.
  2. On the screen appears all sorces.
  3. Press the UP button to switch to the TV mode.
If you are using an accessory device (DVD, DVR, or VCR), be sure the device is on and running.
Blank screen when connecting to the accessory (DVD, STB, PC) device via HDMI to HDMI.

Answer
  • Make sure the cable is well connected .
  • To check which connection is selected, Press the i+ button on the remote control.
  1. When you see Blue mute / blank screen and the i+ display does not indicate any video resolution indication then there is no valid signal detected.
    • Make sure the HDMI output of the accessory is valid by changing the video output resolution to a resolution which the TV can handle.
  2. When you see a blank screen and the i+ display shows a video resolution indication then the connection is correct.
    • The blank screen is caused by the accessory device and not by the TV.
    • To detect and remedy the problem caused by the accessory device, check the instruction manual of this device.
  3. If the problem remains : reselect the HDMI external source input by changing to the other HDMI input and back to the connected HDMI :
    1. Press AV on the remote
    2. Press up and then ok
    3. Press AV again
    4. Press down and ok
    5. The compatibility check process between TV and accessory device will start over again.
  4. Reset (switch off and back on) the TV and also reset the accessory device.

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

Check for power supply trouble. The green LED on the front panel should light if power is getting to your TV. The "no signal" indication may mean no antenna or cable input is detected

Black screen at startup


It sounds like the graphics card or on board graphics is causing the issue, as the external monitor is not working either. Hopefully its a graphics card which can be replaced easily, or there is an expansion slot for a graphics card to be added.
One thing you could try is resetting the CMOS by removing the battery from the motherboard and leaving for ten minutes. Replace the battery and try booting.

In most cases the standby light might blink with different rapidity to indicate a fault relevant to the processor. It is possible that most of these indicate that there are errors in the processing section . Since there is a possible short or leak in the circuit the output driver section can take in huge current to trip the SMPS or from advice from the micro processor. Remove the power plugs and make sure that high voltage sections are discharged of the potential stored in capacitors. Look for visible signs of leak or of busted capacitors. Look for bulged capacitors or damaged components- burnt or busted. Use a multimeter to check the continuity or shorting in components, if so detach from circuit and test . If the voltage builds up and the set power ON and then shuts up then the suspected section must be checked in detail.

The processor must have the +5 voltage to the function properly , the +B and secondary voltages also must be checked to infer the fault. Trace with caution and in running through the signal path , circuit trail.

Intermittent signal


No signal means that it does not have antenna input that it can decode (possibly too low). Try plugging it in right at your laptop to see if the extender is the problem, and go from there.
