Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor

Acer 1716 17 inch LCD monitor, screen fuzzy w/white lines at rt

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.

Common problem.
There are 8 small VRAM BGA chips.
1 or 2 of them needs REFLOW.
Basically board service.

White screen


If the screen is completely white, there is a couple things that could be wrong with it. It could have a defective internal digtal board, or one of the internal cables has a bad connection. The only way to check would be to open the monitor and check the cables and board. Not really worth the money to have it repaired professionally, since the price for a 19 inch LCD are so cheap now a days.

Vetical lines on monitor


The LCD panel if failing, you will get more line as time goes by due to bad LCD t-con board (part of LCD panel). Nothing you can do but replacing the LCD panel.

LCD screen jumps to the right when there is white on the screen.


Okay, best thing to try to do if possible. Try another known good working monitor on the DVI ports. If the screen still jumps then you know the video card is faulty. IF the known good monitor works on the video card then you know the original monitor is bad.

Vertical white line near the left end of the screen.


Usually when there are colored lines on the LCD its because the screen is going bad. Quick way to verify this, try a different monitor on your computer and if the line goes away then you know for sure the monitor is bad.

If you try a different monitor and the line remains then you know that the video card is bad.

Yesterday, a white line appeared in the middle of my screen.


It is most likely a fault in the LCD matrix which makes up the screen. I had one on my 22 inch and it was green. I smacked the left side hard on which it was closest to very hard and it cleared it. If it stays on, take it back if under warranty.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?


I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
