Question about Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor
I hope you can help! This monitor is less than 3 years old and a few weeks ago the menu for the monitor started popping up. I can't use the controls on the monitor to make it go away. I've tried unplugging, turning off and on, etc.
Sometimes it will stay on there for a long time, other times it will just pop up and then go away. The contrast bar is at 0 and I can't fix it
It just popped up again so I can't see what I had just typed. The contrast keeps flashing and the exit symbol keeps hightlighting (now it went away again). I've tried troubleshooting
A friend of mine had the exact same same problem. I think I fixed it, because it has been 2 hours, without the menu popping up. You need to open the monitor:
- Place it face-down on a flat surface
- Remove the cover of the hinge by gripping it with both hands and gently squeezing and pulling.
- Undo the 4 screws and remove the stand (base)
- Undo the four screws tha hold the cover down (4 corners)
- Use a flat screwdriver to seperate the 2 halves (I used 2, a small one to lift the back, a bigger one for leverage)
You will see a small PCB, fastened by 3 screws, at the bottom (where your menu+on/off buttons are) with a ribbon connection to the screen. Next:
- Unscrew the PCB, and gently lift it out.
- Clean the microswitches and the ribbon cable connection.
- Reassemble the monitor.
To clean microswitches and the connection, I used Kontakt Video 90 spray. There must be sprays on the market where you are. It's basically an alcohol-based cleaning spray. Good for cleaning video/tape/floppy heads, CD/DVD lenses, memory modules, etc.
