Question about Acer AL2423W LCD Monitor

Open Question

Broken monitor AL2423W

My 24" Acer monitor has been down for a few weeks now. every now and then after not using it for a while it will turn on and display everything but the next time I turn it on (showing the green power light) it doesn't display anything at all. Sometimes I'll see a little flash from the right of the screen and see part of the "acer" that shows up in the middle but usually not even that. I opened it up and all the capacitors seem to be fine. Could this maybe be a fuse issue?

SOURCE: Acer AL1916W 19" problem

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles

We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.

SOURCE: AL 1716 LCD monitor has no power when plugged in.

As someone suggested the 3 10 volt 1000uF caps are bad. You can indentify them because they're puffed up on the top and therefore blown. Replace them withj a 25 volt cap 470uF or larger and away you go. I did 4 of them in 3 hours. The case snaps apart which is the hardest part. them remove all the screws you can find, unplug the display from the board, remove the rest of the screws holding the power supply board down, and look for the puffy caps. Cahnge them and put everything back together and away you go.

I had one with the same problem. All the capacitors in the power supply were fried. If you're good with electronics, you can pull it apart and replace them (about 8 bucks in parts) or take it to someone who is.

SOURCE: Monitor Not Showing A Picture. Light flashes Yellow and Green.

use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.

please rate me and give me a fixya! if it helped.

Good day, I have an Acer AL2423W monitor. When I turn it on, for the first few minutes all I get are vertical coloured lines. After a few more minutes the screen images start to become visible, but...


Hi Friend, In this case what I would recommend you is to connect any external monitor to the system to check if you have the same issue with the external monitor as well or not.
If yes, then it might be the issue with the video card so, you can try updating the video drivers for the system.
If no, it means that the original monitor has some issues with itself..
Also what I would recommend is try to lessen the screen resolution instead of 1920 x 1200 to lower resolution and restart the system and check if it makes any difference..
Also update the video drivers for the system.

More likely to be metric M4 screws, 1/2" will more likely to be long enough.

"no signal" sign on ACER AL2423w monitor


If you get this issue frequently and it gets resolved, the most likely cause is loose cable connection from the monitor to your system.

This message means that your monitor is not getting any input from your computer. The other possible cause could be a loose video card on your computer.

Every few minutes brings up box 'No Signal'. Sometimes when powering on ACER logo thing takes a few minutes to disappear.


I have a Acer moniter too. Seems like you have a loose VGA cable or not enough power going into the video card

AL2423W flashes 'No Signal' and turns off and on


Hi Guys,
This is a common problem with this monitor but I have a fix. Sounds simple but try it it works. Turn your monitor off, then turn it off at the wall, turn your monitor back on to drain any stored power, now turn it back on at the wall and fire the pc up and see how you go.
