Question about Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

TV Function I would like to know if I can watch TV on my monitor. I have an infra red thingy and a remote, which I think came with the moniotr (I can't remember for sure), and when I first started using the monitor i'm sure there was a pop-up menu that kept asking me if I wanted to watch TV on it, but I kept getting rid of it and now it doesn't come up any more. I am not technically minded at all, so if someone can explain to me if there is a television function how to use it, I would be grateful. Thanks

If you have an Acer aspire RC500, RC900, RC950 then the PC will have a jog shuttle dial on the front of the casing, simply turn this until the TV message shows on the LCD Next to the jog shuttle. The software that came pre-loaded on your PC will activate and ask you to tune in the channels and offer an option to save them.

Why will remote control only allow me to enter numbers?


It need cleaning. Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience.

Test you remote


Ever wondered if your radio / TV / Receiver / DVD remote is still working? You've changed the batteries and still it does not seem to operate. Test it like this : Using your digital camera or cellphone camera point the infra red LED of the remote into the camera as if to take a picture of the remote like this:

/uploads/howto/2_26_2012_10_23_58_am.jpg

Operate one of the buttons on the remote and watch the remote through the viewer and you should see this:
/uploads/howto/2_26_2012_10_24_55_am.jpg

The LED will be flashing rapidly if the remote is functioning. This is because the infra red signal sent by the LED is not visible to the naked eye but is to the camera's circuitry. Magic!! Now go try it. You know you want to. ;-) ps This will not work on your vehicles remote fob as it works with radio signals and not infra red light.

This function is not available sign keeps coming on


Sounds like a problem with the remote where a function button on the remote is being pressed for a function which is not on the TV. Could be a fault in the remote or moisture or some other foreign body which has gotten into the remote. Try removing the batteries from the remote or covering the infra red receiver sensor on the TV. Hopefully this will stop it. It may alternatively be some other infra red source which is confusing the TV. The TV generally won't have unavailable functions in its own menu so it's most likely the remote. Hope this helps

check open the cover of your remote and check the solder of the battery terminal from the pcb board use a soldering iron resolder it.

using your cellphone camera test the infra red emmision of your remote control aim the camera to the infra red of your remote.you must see at the screen of the camera that the infra red is lit when any button is pressed..if not the infra red is busted.

Remote control not working


Hi,
It could be either remote is bad or remote sensor located at tv front is not working.
You can test remote with help of any digital camera, watch remote front through camera and press few buttons on remote, you will see infra red led blinking at remote front, that means remote is good and working. Remote sensor in tv is defective and need to be replaced by qualified tech.
If infra red led of remote does not blink pressing any button while watching through digital camera then problem is remote, buy new one to solve the issue.
Thanks.
