Possibilities include a bad inverter or a bad back light. The inverter powers the back lights. If the inverter senses a problem such as a bad back light or transformer, it will shut down the back lights after about one second. There is actually a picture on the screen, it is just not back lit. Place a flash light flat against the screen and you should see a dark picture.
A common problem in monitors made in Taiwan and China is bad electrolytic capacitors, usually on the power supply board. Bad capacitors usually have a swollen top. This can also cause the screen to go on for a second and then shut off. In this case, the entire monitor will shut down and there will be no dark picture with a flash light. A blinking power suggests it is a bad capacitor.

When you have strange problem like this, first thing to check will be the power supply section, look for caps with bulging or leaking. Please example of failed ACER here so you will know what to look for.

My Acer Al1715 monitor does not display a picture the power is fine as the green light flashes but no picture at all


The light should come on steady. Your monitor most likely has the typical failed capacitor problem. The Power Supply board in the monitor most likely has some capacitors that have failed, visible signs include swelling of the ends of the parts, but they can fail without showing any visible sgns. Replacement of the capacitors often restores operation.

Acer AL1715 Monitor - screen distortion, discoloration, several times each day


Certain versions of the Acer AL1715 monitor had a problem with the VGA socket. Specifically, the plastic case around the socket was not wide enough. The plastic lip interfered with the plug and so the plug does not seat properly. This causes all sorts of intermittent problems. The version of the AL1715 with the problem with had the UPC code of 0 99802 19889 3. I fixed several of these monitors by shaving off the excess plastic with a Dremel Mototool. A hand file would probably work as well. You have to remove the plastic back to get the clearance to do the job.

The monitor turns off and on repeatedly.


does sound like a power supply issue... they are fixable but it's somewhat involved.

Acer al1711


Hi.  I have no experience with an AL1711 but this sounds very much like the power supply problem that affects the AL1715.

If you understand electronics then you need to check the power supply for faulty components (there were two faulty capacitors in my AL1715).  Replacements should cost about 10p each and however much time it takes.

Unfortunately if you're not into electronics then there's really not much you can do.

If you do take the back off then please post whether you can see any faulty components.
