Question about Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

My acer,mod. 1715

Monitor worked well for first year. O_ne day monitor would show clear picture---actually many lines and distorted. I could squeeze top of monitor and a good picture would come on for a while. I purchased a new cable and that did not help. Please can you suggest something-I can't afford a new monitor at this time-still recovering from Katrina damage. This monitor was purchased about one year ago.

Rich most likely this monitor needs capacitor replacement if you can solder you can do it, you just need to order or get the bad capacitors that need replacement so you need to open the case and get at the power board. once you can get at the blown caps you can see whats damaged and what is OK usually it is 1 or 2 capacitors at about 50 cents each. and about 1 hour of your time.
let me know what your doing, good luck

You may want to open it up and inspect the caps (bad caps with bulging tops) as shown in my pictures here:

The problem is that your picture is not of high enough resolution. You need to get a higher resolution picture. There is nothing wrong with the monitor. The picture is distorted because the picture does not contain enough photographic data to scale to the size you are stretching it to. Higher resolution = larger picture without distortion.

Desktop distortion of a Picture


you have to make sure that the picture you want to use as a background has similar resolution to that you are using in your actual display. for example if you are using 800x600 resolution you should have a picture close to that so it doesnt look distorted.

Acer AL 1715 monitor flashes 2x and dies


LCD panels use cold-cathode fluorescent bulbs to make the light necessary for them to show images. What you're describing is something I've seen in panels where the bulbs were dying or dead. it's also possible that the controller for the bulbs is also on the fritz.

Monitor keeps going blank at start up


This looks to be a power supply fault - the inverters for the backlights are built into the power supply (Delta Electronics, model no. ADP-40AF).
