Question about Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor
Hi! My adapter went south! (Monitor was flashing green light and no response to any buttons). Can I sub an adapter with a slightly higher voltage (e.g., 20v--Dell AC-6 series adapter, or Targus 18-24v adapter) without damaging the monitor? Thanks, Mark

Hello, I have to same problem. I returned my monitor to Acer but got it back unrepaired, they could not see the malfunction. But I kept on sending it back, until I got a new model. Now after 2 years I get the same thing with this monitor. But there's no warranty anymore, so I looked into the problem myself. I found out that inside the powercircuit board is connected to the mainboard through a 10pin connector. The 5 pins that are on the lowest row, show a trace of white powder, I suppose occidation. I sprayed a little of contactspray in it. I must say the problem is not gone, but much better. The problem shows not so frequent anymore and lasts not so long. At first the screen switched of for 3 to 5 minutes and came back on. Now the screen is gone for perhaps 1 second and returns. So I'm almost convinced the problem has something to do with the connection of the powercircuitboard inside and the mainboard inside, when the monitor heats up a bad connection occurs due to occidation of the 10 pin connector. If you find a solution that fixes the problem 100% let me know, please. Mario.
