Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Poor screen quality

I have an Acer LCD monitor X191W (1 yr old) and a Dell Dimension 8100 desktop (9 yrs old). The monitor was great yesterday, but today it is poor quality. Text is fuzzy and graphics/colors are shadowy and bleeding across the screen.

I plugged the monitor into my laptop and it worked fine. I also checked and double checked all my connections -- again all is fine there. So my guess is the problem lies within the computer.

Do you have any advice on how I should investigate/repair this?

Thanks.

    The monitor is plug and play. But I did reinstall the display adapter driver from NVIDIA, and it made no difference.

    Could it be the video card?

I think it is your screen resolution it needs to be increased, go through my published guide entitled How to set your Desktop Screen Resolution?

Increased resolution and colour quality will give you an excellent picture.

It's probally the inverter board that drives the backlight in your monitor is failing causing the digital board to reset. I think Acer has a 3 yr warranty. If the monitor is less than 3 years, I would call them and ask them to repair it. They will fix it for free if it less than 3 yrs old, it will only cost to you is shipping it to TX. Hope this helps.

I have an AOC 22" lcd monitor, about 1 1/2 yr old. lower part of monitor is blinking non stop. can it be fixed?


You may have lamp failure due to poor soldering works at the end of the lamps or bad inverter ciruits for the lower lamps. You may have to open it up and inspect the inside to see if you can see any bad caps (bulging top/seal), burnt or over heated parts, poor solder joints on the PCB, etc. See common monitors failure pictures for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My monitor screen goes black it lights up about half the scree when i first turn it on then blinks like a light bulb that is not screwed in all the way then goes completly black acer al2002w


vandetucker, You should use your warranty and use it NOW!! When "IT" goes to "BLACK" can you see the WIN-desktop when holding a bright flashlight at different angles 1 inch from screen??? How old is unit? How many "ON" hours does it have? Your monitor isn't any different than a Gateway or LG or Phillips, VIEWSONIC, SHARP, Samsung, Sony, Dell!!! You will need to read a few of my other responses and follow some of the links to web pages that you find already in my profile on fixya, so that you will know what questions to ask about repairing your unit. Let me know WHAT YOU WANT TO DO after you have done some research about your BLACK SCREEN lcd monitor. Here is an option I just know you will love. You can do the trade for new 2010 monitor unit and the technician in the back of the computer store just might put $6 $8 in parts into your old AL2002WSD and have a nice wide screen for the new year. Yeah, and your monitor "blinks like a light bulb" !!! Oh my!! How right you are!!! Do you know anything about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps"? You should also see if Acer has a cash+old swapout program for a same model refurbished unit??? You should also give ACER a little bit of lip about the poor reliability of their short lifespan electronic ballasts and CCFL lamps. Like to know what your going to do! 12fixlouie Bye for now

My acer X193w+ screen turns pink. What is causing


laurie515, Gee, I hope it's a 'pretty pink' colour. Do you really mean that What was once WHITE or VERY Lite GRAY is now appearing pink??? Laurie515 you must tell us more. How old is this unit? 4-6 yrs? I suspect that the "Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent-Tubes" that are hanging on the rear of the LCD glass panel and provide white light, have over time, now become tired out. YOU WILL NOT FIX IT!! IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE. Here are some options. 1. Trade in for new if yours is >4yrs old. 2. Check for swapout program with ACER? This is only a dim Maybe thing. You send them yours +$50-$100 and they return a refurbished unit. 3. Find local TV/Monitor Repair shop that knows all about LCD monitor repair. there are also guys on fixya that do LCD refurbishing (new ccf tubes/inverter/smps) Do some web searches on LCD monitor failures and also visit youtube for vid clips of monitor disassembly if you want to see the insides of a typical LCD monitor.
Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com
