Question about Acer AL2423W LCD Monitor
My monitor stopped displaying any signal after days of flickering like an oldTV that won'ttrace (Phase, stabilize, whatever it's called) I took it appart and saw no burnt components. I put it back together and still does the same thing, but I noticed the backlight works (don't know if that helps)
Hi. This evening, I had the exactly the same symptom. I found a way to fix it.
When you power up the screen, keep the power and auto buttons both pressed. That seems to reset the screen. After that when you open the menu, a small F appears on the left side of the contrast icon. Go to that red F with the arrows and press menu. Another menu will popup. Choose 'Burnin' and set it to off. That's all !
Note: do not try to change other settings, they depends of the harware...

Ahhh too funny =) They don't make them adult proof for nothing.
Ok, get a towel, lay it on a flat surface.
Place the monitor screen down onto the towel
Looking from under the monitor there will be 2 main ways to "Disassemble the bastard" heheh Ahhhh ..anyway
Look closely where the front and back panels join. You should see two notches possibly holes there. If so then insert a flat blade screwdiver about 1cm into the hole and lift upwards. It should pop. Do the same for the other side, then gently just using your hands pop it around the rest.
The "theres no bloody notches here method"
Insert a flat blade screwdriver between the case and the top of the power socket. Again, just 1-2cm. Lift up (gently) and this should begin the popping operation.
Just becareful not to jam the blade in too far.

Check to make sure the cables are connected tightly. Wiggle the cable, does it get better or worse? Might need a new cable. And reseat the video card inside the computer. If that doesn't fix it, then yes you will probably need a new monitor.

Try to reinstall the drivers for the monitor and see if that works.

This Problem is Acer(s) Monitors. Though it is a nuisance one fix That has work for many is the Unplugging after it goes back to Good (viewable) screen.
I have hooked mine up to an inexpensive Power strip to make it easier for me and just turn off at time indicated above and Viola Simple is as Simple does :)
