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

Re: TV Function

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.

Place your phone on picture mode. place it over the remote infra red section the press any button on the remote. If you see a red signal then the remote is good. If not, you need a new remote.
If the remote is good then your sensor on your t.v. is bad. You will need it replaced.

How do I remove the back cover from my lg flatron screen L1954tq -pf

I use thin flat blade screw driver to crack it open at the bottom edge and work you way around.
It is not easy if you have never open the moniotrs before.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Monitor will not display picture, but the power like blinks on and off. What is causing this? Bad caps?

Turns on and off by itself

There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try:

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

I hope this helps. Joe

Philips 190s turns itself on/off

Mine is a 190s Monitor and not a TV with any kind of remote unit controlling it. I had this issue about a year ago and it sorted it's self after a week or so left turned off. This makes me wonder if it has to do with heat and humidity affecting the micro switches located behind the push button controls on the removable screen surround.
