Question about Acer AL1912B 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

17" Acer LCD does not display.

I have a 17" LCD and it does not have a display even when the light is green. When I shine a light directly onto the screen, I am able to view it very faintly. I read on the forums here that the possible problem may be the inverter board (sorry if misspelled). Could it be? And if so how easily are those changed? Does anyone know a monitor repair company in Chicago?

Re: 17" Acer LCD does not display.

Hi Needtofix, It?s not terribly difficult but you do need some experience handling and working on electronics, tools, a good mechanical aptitude, attention to detail and the willingness to risk doing more harm than good if you make a mistake. The other thing to realize is that you are going to have to invest a couple hours of your time researching, purchasing and installing the components. So if you are willing to spend a couple of hours to save about $100 then it?s worth it. As far as a contractor in Chicago you might try searching this site, but if that fails just look in the phone book for computer repair. I suspect the hard part will be figuring out which one to go to. Let us know how it turns out and if you find a good repair shop you might pass this site on to them so that they can register their services here.

Black display

You say black display. Not sure what you mean. Either the monitor is working or it is not. If you see nothing on the monitor and the power light is yellow, then it is not getting a signal.
If the power light is green and you see nothing, look really closely. You might even shine a flashlight at the monitor to see if there is actually a dim display. If so, the backlight has gone out and needs to be replaced.
I'm assuming that you have tried to brighten the display with the monitor controls.

When I turn on my computer and monitor, the monitor display is on for about 30 seconds, then goes black. The computer is on, the green light is on, but nothing on the screen.

get a bright light or torch and shine it on the screem if you see any faint image then the problem lies with your backlight, sometimes connectors come loose and thats your best hope. if you have a warranty of any kind its time to use it.

Princeton VL1715-1 no display

From what you say there is probably not much you can do with it, the parts inside are SMD, to small
to work on. If you could still see txt on the screen when you shine your torch, it could be fixed by
replacing the back lighting PCB.

Hope this helps
Have a nice day.

Wont stay on

IF there is no display even with a flashlight, the P/S board is malfunctioning. Bad capacitors or LCD driver board circuit. Mine did this and it was bad caps, 4 of 8 were bad and a burned out chip on the P/S board.

Green Light, no Display - Gateway FPD1730

I picked up a FPD1730 monitor for free which was just sitting out in my apartment hallway. I suspected something was wrong and sure e**ugh there was ** backlight, but I could see faint video when I shined a flashlight on it.

A quick Google search of the inverter model # led me to a German forum which suggested replacing the fuse labeled "F1" on the inverter board. I don't have a matching fuse on hand but I bridged the connection with a wire and sure e**ugh the backlight came back on. Short-circuiting like this is definitely **t 100% safe but if you can find a 4A fuse then it's a really cheap and quick fix.

BenQ FP767 17" Power but no display?

Different faults here.
First fault is no power, it is bad capacitors on the power board.

Second & third faults are the inverters. (power but no image visible, but feint if you shine a light into the screen)
Check the 4 transistors on the main power board for shorts.

If you are unsure what that means, then take it to your local TV technician, he should be able to solve it fairly cheaply.

Hope that helps.
