Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor
I have an Acer 1716 17 inch LCD monitor that was working perfectly a couple of days ago. I was working online, went to get a cup of coffee and when I came back the screen had gone fuzzy with white horizontal lines along the right side. I can still see all the Desktop Icons and mouse cursor seems to work fine, and I can open programs, etc., also brightness seems ok. I turned on a small space heater to warm the area under the desk 5 minutes prior to the screen going fuzzy so I thought maybe EMI had affected the computer. I hooked up the monitor to my laptop and same result. I don't have an extra cable to try, so if it is the cable it gave me the same results with the laptop. Manufacture date is Nov. 2005. I opened it up and looked for dry solder joints, bad capacitors, but only see what looks like the larger (power board ?) has gotten hot around diode d803 and diode zd802 and capacitor c803. I hope you can help, Thanks.
There are 8 small VRAM BGA chips.
1 or 2 of them needs REFLOW.
Basically board service.
