Acer al1916w wont turn on

I've owned it for a little over a year, and it suddenly stopped working. It was working fine, the next day i went to put on my pc and it wouldn't turn on at all. I've used different cables to see if it's a problem with them but it still won't turn on at all. When i press the "on" button the little light doesn't turn on.

I've experienced no problems with it at all so this was unexpected. Has anyone experienced anything like this or know what the problem could be before i buy a new monitor?

    Don't trust Acer to repair the problem properly, My AL1916(2 1/2 y's old), suddenly developed a green tint which couldn't be adjusted out. Acer's reply was to "UPGRADE the FIRMWARE". The unit was returned only to work for 2 hours and the power light would come on but no signal. Another repair, this time the Power Supply was apparently faulty. Unit returned to work for yet another 5 hour's. Again another repair, and again yet another power supply was fitted. Returned and then after 5 day's the same problem with the unit not powering up at all. Acer deemed that if the monitor when faulty after being repaired for the 3rd time it would be assesses for replacement. Acer has since gone back on there arrangement and decided to yet again update the firmware. This issue has gone on for 5 months now, and still going. I will never buy another Acer product ever again. The Definition of Customer Service is lost with Acer.

Hi,

My living room monitor faced the same issue before.

I called up Acer, and they fixed the power LCD board in the monitor.

Do not buy a new one yet, unless the warranty is over.

It's turns blue to power safe mode (yellow) it's prevent futher damaged to your monitor. It's seems you got a busted backlight inverter. Need to replaced a new one...Since you only got it for a few months, send it back to Acer for a replacement of a new backlight inverter... Have a nice day!

Acer Monitor


I have no idea about the game connection, don't add to many questions to this, as you can research that stuff yourself as you are now a expert in your own eyes. There is a driver for that monitor located on the Acer website and they offer a 3 year warrenty on the monitor. I doubt the driver will fix your issue, but it is at least worth a shot.
If what you say is true, then it looks like to me you've tried just about everything that can be tried and I would lean toward explaining to Acer why you need a replacement monitor.

Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor Blacking out


This is not a setting or driver issue! The best way to determine this is to connect the monitor up to another device to see if the same thing occurs! If it does then your backlight is in bad shape and it is starting to go bad. It will generate enough power to display some images, but when it continues to be on for a certain peirod of time it goes black. This is common when the backlight is starting to go bad!
