Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor
When power is connected to monitor green power LED flashes. Power switch does nothing. Monitor does not work [whether or not connected to computer]. There is no reference in my user manual to the significance of the flashing green led. Is it a faulty backlight and if so how can I repair?
Look carefully at the large capacitors to see if they're bulged on top if so replace them. Capacitors fail often in LCD monitors and are a cheap fix. It works about 50% of the time. and it's cheap enough to try.

Unfortunately the inverter board is built in to the power supply so it's a case of replacing the whole power supply - manufactured by Delta Electronics, model ADP-40AF.

It appears either the inverter supply board or the main video board have failed. First replace the inverter board, if not fixed, replace the video board. Mike
