    Thank you for your suggestions. I tried unplugging the monitor and reconnecting it. The results were no different. Right now I am using a different monitor, so I assume the power supply and the memory aren't causing the problem. Could the monitor just have died?

    i have exactly the same problem, switch on monitor and Acer flashes on then desktop flashes and goes black. I have to switch on and off about 50/60times and eventualy the Acer comes on larger in size and screen holds and is then ok all day.

    Solution #2 works. I replaced all 4 capacitors (2x470uF, 2x 1000uF) for sure.

I have the same problem on my Acer AL1711. The monitor was out of warranty so I opened it up and found one of the 1000 mf capacitor almost ready to pop. A 50 cents replacement from allelectronics.com fixed the problem.

Not recommended for anyone without experience soldering electronic components to PCB's.

1) It could be your power supply is going bad or not strong enough to keep the monitor on.
2) It could be a memory issue. Video is one of the signs that your ram is bad.
3) It could be a loose connection or the monitor itself.
I would suggest first unplugging all the connections to the monitor and pc then plug in again and restart. If it still turns off try a monitor that you know works. If you still have the problem try changing your memory sticks. It's unusual that it would be a video card/ on board video because it usually either works or it doesn't.

    Yes of coarse if changing the monitors solved your problem then I would say that you did great. Monitors do die. Power surges, moisture, age etc...

My priceton digital lcd 1711 comes on and will work for 5 or 10 minutes then the screen goes out and will not come back on until I turn the computer off and then back on


glasford22, You will need to do a bit of swapping to prove that your pc not at fault!! If 1711 does same when connected to different "known good" pc, then you may be dealing with "black screen of death" symptom. I'll bet you don't know the simple "flashlight test" that EVERY owner of a cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit lcd monitor should know how to perform and interpret results of when confronted with a black screen. Have you been to YOUTUBE to view any video clips of owners /technicians that repair their units for less than $10? Just do some reading in my fixya profile and those of other tech's here on fixya ("budmrtn" "buddymc") .. You just might find solution to your BSOD problem. Good luck with repair. 12fixlouie

My AOC screen goes black after about a few seconds after booting.


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Blank screen


Possible that the HV inverter or the CFL tubes are going bad / defective. I suggest to bring the unit to an authorized Acer service center for proper check-up / test & fix the problem. regards

My Acer AL1711 packed up last week, I bought a new Acer and noticed they have a 3 year warranty. Give Acer a call on 0870 853 1000, and they`ll do a warranty repair with free pick up and return - great service! Not sure if you need proof of purchase or not, luckily I had mine.
