Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

Recently, with my LCD monitor (Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor), I've noticed that sometimes, my monitor would go orange in places, and I can see the lines that form the images on the screen. They flash and glow orange in some parts, but they don't in others. It also changes with the background, eg. on my desktop, the middle top part is orange, while on Mozilla Firefox, the entire panel on the top (the one with the address bar, the 'File, Edit, View' etc.) is orange and some parts flash. It started about 3 weeks ago, but back then, I could just turn off the monitor for about 5-10 secs and it would return to normal. Now, however, it won't return to normal even after closing for 1 hour, and shutting down and restarting. The monitor is fairly new, about 3-5 months old. I've also unplugged and replugged the cables (there is only two: one for power and the other to connect to the computer.) The monitor is a Plug and Play, so it didn't come with any drivers. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

Certain versions of the Acer AL1715 monitor had a problem with the VGA socket. Specifically, the plastic case around the socket was not wide enough. The plastic interfered with the plug and so the plug did not seat properly. I fixed several of these monitors by shaving off some of the plastic with a dremel mototool. A hand file would probably work as well. You have to remove the plastic back to do the job.

Re: Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

Hi. My LCD has the same problem(in my case i have toxic green glowing areas). It starts about 2 years after i bought it, and as the time went by it was getting worse. First it appears after 3 or 4 hours of work, now it can be about 30 min. I thought that LCD is damaged by heat(after some cool-down time it got OK, but these times are longer and longer). Now I find that "reseting" from OSD menu solve this problem, but I don't know for how long :( Some drivers are there:

My monitor receives power, but doesn't receive signal from my computer. The green light blinks like there is something wrong and there is a faint beeping noise.

1st you separate you monitor from you Computer.
  • Now On your Monitor and check there is Faint beeping noise.
  • If there is no noise and after sometime the monitor light will change in orange colour.
  • It means there is no fault in monitor.
  • And also check Data cable of monitor is it right.
  • It means there is problem with you computer .
  • You Check the VGA Card.
  • I think there is problem with your VGA Card.

Monitor Acer Al 1914, no signal

Check your connections to the PC. Make sure that they are nice and secure. If there is a resolution problem setting it should display the boot process and then go blank after starting the operating system.

My acer monitor's power light is blinking green then orange and will not work, what is the problem

This could indicate that there is a problem with your display card and not your monitor. Try plugging you monitor into another pc and check for the same problem.

I have noticed recently that the screen words flicker.

If the monitor is less than a year only, then your best bet is contact the manufacturer for warranty support.
