Question about Acer AL2032WD 20" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer 20" LCD AL2017 does not give a picture @ all.

The monitor just quit working. It was working fine for a little over a year but now it's just a blank black screen. Originally when you first turned it on, it would display "Acer" but now it doesn't even do that. The light on the power button comes on green like normal but displays absolutely nothing... My more important question is whether or not this thing is even worth fixing. I mean I could just go out & buy 1 for a little more than $100. What's it going to cost to try & fix?

You can look on eBay for BACKLIGHT FLUORESCENT BULB for your model.

They're around $20.00.

My monitor was working fine but now it won't turn on. Nothing was happening when it suddenly went off.The light is also not on and I have tried a few different power cables and plugs. It is an acer monitor...


Nost failures are due to bad caps.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

NO LIGHT ON SRCEEN


This model AL2017 20" Acer monitor is known for having a bad power inverter board. The capacitors go bad, which causes the backlight to completely stop working or flicker intermittently. If you feel like you are electronically and mechanically inclined the board is easily replaced. Search ebay for AL2017 Power Board -- its about 15 bucks plus shipping.

Hi
I repair monitors
Based on other models , it sounds like you are having a powerboard-inverter issue.
It just so happens that I hjust got one in that's doing that, I should know in a day or two (maybe sooner) what the whole story on this model is.
Good timing !!??

Had a Acer al2017


If your picture was okay when it was running and the screen was not pinkish then the power board inside the monitor is in need of an overhaul.
Your unplugging it and plugging it back in just did a temporary reset by discharging the capaciotrs for a bit.
It more than likely needs new capacitors installed.
I have done a few of these and do a lot of inverter power board repairs through ebay id bammbammfran
