Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

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.

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.

My 95 Wrangler wont start when the engine is cold. it will crank but not start unless you give it gas. It starts fine when its hot (90 degrees) outside or i've already started and drove it that day, but in...

i was told that if the jeep all of a sudden didnt start on its own without giving it gas, then next time you start it hold the pedal all the way to the floor and it resets something in the computer and sets you back to normal.

I just had this problem at work and what I did was I powered up the computer and went into the menu. I went to the 2nd to last button and selected the reset. It's working perfectly now. I do not know if it will last but it's easy and free.

Ps3 controller going nuts

If it were mine..I'd get a ziplock bag big enough to put it in and soak the thing in 91% or better alcohol..Slosh it around a bit let it set for a few hours..drain it and let it dry out for a day or so.
Other than that..Buy a new/almost new one.
