Question about Acer AL2032WD 20" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Acer AL2021 My monitor works as it is supposed to when turned on, after it has been on for some time, and the computer is rebooted the start up ACER logo flashes on then of after a second or two and the screen remains blank. If I shut off the power for 10-30 minutes the monitor works again and will remain on and work well unless rebooted. Any suggestions what causes this or how it may be repaired. Thank you

    One year after purchasing this monitor, I ended up with the same problem. The monitor would turn on, flash the logo for a brief period (~200ms), go blank, flash the PC screen (also ~200ms), then go blank. Not even the monitor's menu would show when the menu button was pressed.



    I used to be able to fix the condition by unplugging it for a few seconds, then turning it back on. Recently however, a reboot has caused it to go into this failure mode, I fear, forever.



    I tried all combinations of holding keys down, cycling the power switch, even unplugging it. Nothing it seems can ressurect this monitor. I have yet to remove the cover to see what lies beneath.



    If anyone knows which part in the power section happens to be faulty (or even has a suspicion), I would appreciate the info. I would also appreciate greatly receiving a PDF of, or a link to, a (free) service manual for this monitor, if such a document exists; I could then attempt to repair the monitor and post my findings for all.

    I have the same problem with my son's screen and I only bought it for him 2 months ago. It only flashes the logo and then it goes black. I tried everything I know how to do and could not fix it. I am very very disappointed.

    Did anyone ever resolve this? I've had the same problem intermittently with my AL2021 for a couple years. It has recently become much worse--every day I have to hit the on/off button under the monitor dozens of times before I get lucky and it comes on. I've made several calls to tech support over the past two years, and no tech has yet acknowledged that this is a recurring problem with this model, though I've found several mentions of it on the web. I'm finally sending it in for repair.

This also worked for me, On the monitors power supply board, i replaced 2- 470uf 16v, 2-1000uf 16v and 1- 680uf 16v capacitors with ones which were 25v and the monitor works awesome now! Pretty good for a 4.51$ fix and free monitor.

I fixed my AL2021 by replacing the output caps on the power board. $4 repair. Pull the thing apart and replace the 1000uF, 680uF and 470uF caps on the end of the power board.

    Replacing the capacitors worked for me too.
    If your screen suddenly goes black a lot of times just the backlight goes off. You can check this with a flashlight by shining on the screen and watch carefully if you see anything. If you can see anything your monitor is still working only the backlight has failed.

I had exactly the same problem with my acer al2021 - they replaced the power unit and now it's happening again - first the flickering and now no picture at all! and their repair warranty is only 3 months... they told me it would be cheaper to buy a new monitor! so i will - but never another Acer product!

How do I open cover of Acer AL2021 Monitor ?


This is a bit tricky, but not impossible.
1. Remove the two visible screws near the bottom. 2. Pull the plastic covers off the stand: Pull from the inside (nearest where the stand is attached to the monitor. 3. Undo the screws and remove the bracket. 4. Under the bracket is the final screw. 5. Try pulling the front off the back starting at the bottom. It'll require a little force. 6. Now you should be able to get a knife in to pull the rest of the case off. Leaver by pushing the front outwards and back inwards and the clips should come off ok.

Old request but . . . .
If you have the monitor connected and turned on, reboot the PC. It's possible that Windows will see both the monitor and sound capabilities and reinstall drivers for both.

Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor goes blank without warning


The need to reboot your computer to get your monitor working places the blame totally in the computer. You have a virus, or the computer is overheating and shutting down for thermal reasons.
