Question about Acer X193W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen Blinks and comes back

My problem is similar to some other posts but not the same.

Occasionally the screen will suddenly go black for 2-3 seconds and then come back, like it has reset itself. I am plugged into the DVI port of the video card. It is worst with videos and when zooming in google earth.

System Specs:
Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1
1.87 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS [Display adapter]
ACR Acer X193W+ [Monitor] (19.1"vis, s/n LBE090263610, September 2008)

Latest video and monitor drivers have been installed.

Just installed monitor brand new four days ago.
Have tried rebooting.

    Suggestion was right on. Finally got through to Acer and they agreed and wanted me to pay shipping to ship it back to them for repair that would take 4 to 5 weeks. I said no way on a 3 day old monitor. I called Newegg and they are paying to have it shipped back to them and they will send a new one.

    Thanks. I would rather it had been sometihng simpler but at least the costs are being covered.

Screen isn't coming on. I have a Princeton VL1919. The blue light blinks when on and the screen is just black. I have tried it on all 3 of my computers and it won't work. Any help would be awsome. Thanks


Common failure on the Princeton monitors are caps failure in the power supply, look for bad caps (bulging top or seal), see failed Princeton monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Monitor went black


Same with mine a couple days ago. I've been told the contacts have oxidized and need to be cleaned. It was going to cost about $80 to fix and no guarantee how long it would last so I just bought a new monitor.

My monitor will only blink a black or white screen.


check the warranty online for your screen.. go the the acer support website and look up warranties, and it will ask for a really long number on the back of your screen, and it will tell how long the warranty is good for and what to do with it.
Mine is doing the same thing. flashes white then black and that is all

Keeps blinking out to a black screen


Hi,

If the power light stays on and the unit works even if for just a moment, then chances are that you either have a cold solder, or a heat problem with some components or your CCF Lamp is starting to fail.

All possibilities require that you open your LCD monitor and perform diagnostics of the components/circuitry inside. This of course would require that you be familiar with components, circuitry, soldering and the use of a VOM.

Cold solder - refers to soldered connections that have lost 100% of their connectivity. When the unit is jarred or after some time of use it looses completely its connection. The corrective measure require that the said cold solder be located and resoldered.

Heat problems with some components - the most often are power capacitors. These are can types rated something like 470uF/16V.  When power is applied and heat starts to build up, they start to looses their capacitance and therefore can no longer hold a charge.  Most cases, there are physical evidences such as blistering, brownish leakage at the top or at the bottom, swelling or gaps at the X/Y indentation at the top.

CCF Lamp - may involve the backlight or the inverter that powers it. A way to verify this is to shine a flashlight on the instance the screen blinks out at the screen. A faint image of your desktop should be visible.  The CCF Lamp is similar to household fluorescent lamp which of course can fail after some time of usage.  The inverter is a high frequency high voltage power for the lamp.

Since there are dangerous high voltages inside, extreme care should be practiced when working on exposed components.  Should you not be comfortable doing this, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things are or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
