Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Horizontal lines across my monitor.

My monitor was working fine for about 3+ months. Then I gotthese faint horizontal lines. Just turned on my screen one day and had horizontal linesthat span the width of the screen and scroll along with the image. It's like whatever image is on the monitor bleeds across the screen. Like at night when you see light spread horizontally from a streetlight. I hope this helps explain the problem. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

SOURCE: acer x191w monitor background is moved to the right with about 2inches of black on left side.

I tried this and it still does not fix my problem. I went into Menu and hit reset by mistake and that totally screwed up my monitor. Now the left side gets cutoff and no matter what I change the resolution to it does not fix it.

Whjat should I do?

SOURCE: desktop is dispalyed horizontal on monitor

The Ctrl-alt direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

SOURCE: monitor with horizontal shakes

i have found a twisted groundline makes my monitors horizon dance, try a more natural approach to your power cord setup, like a waterfall or growing vines, rigged every 8 inches

If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

Our three year ol Samsung TV has dark horizontal lines across the top of bottom of the screen. It is getting worse


Welcome to fixYa!

When you see lines like these across your LCD, it indicates a problem with your monitor's electrolytic capacitors.A faulty filter capacitor in the power supply board (SMPS board) can cause horizontal lines across your monitor screen.Horizontal screen lines are one of the most visible problems I see in LCD monitors & TV's that are 3-7 years old. It can happen as much from heat, humidity & less-than-ideal operating conditions, as it can from fluctuating current supply or manufacturing defects.

The way to repair horizontal screen lines is by removing the capacitors from the printed circuit board (PCB) and testing them with a LCR meter.

If it shows zero, there's your confirmation that the specific capacitor needs to be replaced.

now if you can replace them your welcome but i wont suggest that , cause you may break it more....!

any ways do comment if it helped you in any manner!

Do you have the monitor plugged into a power strip. If so unplug it and plug it directly into the wall.

The faint white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the pump-up capacitor in the vertical output circuit is going bad and the output itself is about to short out. When the TV stops working, the vertical output IC has finally shorted out. Replacing the vertical output IC, the pump-up capacitor and possibly a small value resistor next to the flyback (B+ for the v-out) should bring the set back to life.

Horizontal lines


Horizontal blur can be caused by both a bad monitor or a bad video card/Card Slot on the motherboard.

The easiest way to check this is to connect the monitor to a known good system. If the problem follows the monitor to the good system, the monitor is bad and will need replacement. If it works fine on another system the problem is the video card/slot

Horizontal line throught the screen.


Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.

What is wrong with your monitor is that the Horizontal section is going faulty, the lines you are seeing are the Horizontal Retrace lines, usually invisable in a working unit. It is often a faulty capacitor(s) OR a Diode breaking down.. in the area of the Flyback Transformer. Probably time for a new one unless ya can fix it yaself.
