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

When we turn our TV on we get sound, but our picture is distorted for about 15 min then it's clear. Any sug?


Your TV is about 5 years old.
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Hi Nithya
Try this Turn off the monitor then unplug all the cables , press and hold down the power button for 15 sec , see whether there is any magnetic device near by the monitor , eg Anything which is made of Iron, or any metal, keep them away from the monitor , if this is not fixing the issue , i Guess the monitor need to be serviced !

Monitor is distorted


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

Bad DC filter caps can cause alot of strange symptoms.

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.

PURPLE LINES SHOWING ON SCREEN WHEN ATTEMPTING TO TAKE PHOTOS


Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

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).
