Hi rduncan27,
I will be happy to help. 88% of LCD tv problems are with the backlight, the symptoms you described indicate a probable inverter malfunction. Lets do a simple test to check the functionality.

  1. Get the tv to a point that it is producing sound.
  2. Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen.
  3. Look very closely for a dark video image.
Let me know your findings and we can proceed from there.

The poroblem can either be the 12~18vdc power supply section is not supplying the power to the backlight inverter board or the inverter board went out, you need to check voltage on the power supply, also look to see if you see any caps with leaking/bulging top.
See example of failed TV and monitors here:

Check the power supply module for bad DC filter caps first, then check the backlight inverter board for shorts.

SOURCE: I turned on my tv

LCD sets (other than those very new) use fluorescent back lighting to produce the picture. Those lights require high voltage to ionize them so the problem could be either the tubes themselves or the inverter that produces the high voltage is failing. Anyone with some degree of manual finesse and possessed of logic can cure this problem but it may be difficult to identify the failed part accurately meaning that if you 'shotgun' the problem, you would need to replace both the tube(s) and the inverter board. The latter is in most sets as a separate assembly which derives its operating voltage from the main power supply and will be obviously attached to the fluorescent tube(s).
The board will have to found from the manufacturer or a company that disassembles scrapped sets.
Check with the site below for availability:
Jimmy's Parts
Search on your set's model number and the term 'inverter.'
The tube(s) can be bought from several US suppliers.

I am having the same problem... never happened before and I've had the TV for about 2 years. I tried unplugging it for about an hour and plugging back in, but not working. Will try it overnight and see what happens.... *sigh*

I think you are experiencing something that happens a lot when you change monitors, possibly 'downsizing'? Your graphics settings on your actual PC were set too high for the new, smaller flat-screen, so what you'll have to do is hook it back up to another monitor, even an older CRT-style one, and then do the following steps before hooking it back up to your new 14" LCD:
  1. boot into Windows as usual, but on an older, perhaps larger monitor
  2. right-click on any empty area on your desktop, then left-click on 'Properties' at the bottom of the little pull-down menu that pops up
  3. when 'Display Properties' window comes up, click on the very last tab to the right, labelled ''Settings'
  4. find the 'Screen Resolution' slider bar about two-thirds the way down that window, and adjust the slider control to a more standardized, universal setting, like '800x600', or even '1024x786'. Either of those should work with your new LCD flatscreen.
  5. make sure you click 'OK' on that window, then 'Shut Down' Windows properly (using the Start button, and all that)
  6. disconnect your old monitor, and hook your new one back up. It should work!
This happens a lot. I build HTPCs, so it's even worse the more 'options' you have, believe me.
Hope this helps!

COMPUTER WON'T WORK WITH NEW HD LCD TV


Sounds like the PC has too high a screen resolution set for the TV to handle
Re-connect PC to PC monitor , change display resolution to 800 x 600 (right click desktop, properties, settings, slider marked "screen resolution" to leftmost side, save settings.
connect PC to TV, TV should be able to display PC data now.
Go through same procedure with PC connected to TV, move slider to 1024 x 768 posn. (depends on TV model as to what it can cope with) - *apply* this setting & see if TV is able to display at this resolution.
If it is, desktop will appear - if not, you'll get the warning box generated by the TV...don't worry, in 15 secs, the PC will revert to the old (working) setting.

Hope this helps.

Windows XP Pro. driver for the acer LCD Monitor X193W


Hi,

To my knowledge, it is compatible and certainly would work with XP. Since this monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs make is compatible for most video cards or even a built-in video of the PC. If for some reason the Acer X193W would not work with your Windows XP PC, possible reasons are:
  • Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh Rate of the PC's Display Properties too high, try lowering them down;
  • hardware fault either on the monitor or video card;
  • incorrect/missing drivers of the video card;
  • it is being hooked as a secondary monitor and the dual/twin view is not activated.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
