Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

ACER AL1917W AND AL2216W both LCD's

Both monitors are less than a year old. The first the 22" was bought in Dec 08.
After 3-4 months it developed a problem. You turn on the monitor and it would only stay on for a few seconds and go off, and developed a loud hum. You simply could not keep it turned on. No matter what display or settings you tried. So than bought the 19" and now it developed the same problems.
The monitors do the same thing on different computers. So it is not the computer or power to them. I also have a 22" Samsung LCD and 15" gateway LCD and all work fine.
Any thoughts.

Hi
What do the power button lights do when there is a signal to the monitor and when it has a signal taken away from it ??
I believe your power boards have failed capacitors and need to be updated. Seems they used some crappy ones in some of these models.
I fix quite a few through ebay and that is a common problem, sorry to say.

Acer AL1917W LCD monitor powers up but no image at all.


The CPU and PSU, have absolutely nothing to do with a monitor.

HERMAN has the correct response. For the info you posted.

When you have a video problem, you post what the motherboard is or what model PC, the graphics card, and what drivers you have installed.

Acer AL2216W 22" LCD monitor. DVI input apparently


Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

Acer AL2216W 22" LCD monitor. DVI


You may have problem in the logic board, it uses surface monted components no much chance for DIY repair.
Service manual; http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=Acer&megnev2=AL2216W&kategoria=monitor&kat2=all

The cases these days are hard to open, they use plastic finger hooks types, they go in easy but real hard to remove without damageing them.
Use thin flat blade to crack open at the bottom edge so the scratches will not be so noticeable, and work your way around, look out for cables attached to the front bezel also.
