Question about Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer AL22 Has no image for 1 Hour. Then is OK.

Over time ( one year) it boots up slower and slower. Now, Initially, it does not show any life, not even the Acer logo. Then, after an hour or more, it does finally boot, and works fine. IF I turn it off then, it works OK when I turn it back on. But if I leave it off for a period of time. it again takes much time to function again. Do I throw it out or can I fix it?

Hello,

That is a common symptom of a failing power supply board. The filter capacitors start to go bad and the power supply can not stabilize and start correctly, after the capacitors are powered up for a while they can hold a charge and the power supply finally gets going. Here is a link to a repair guide for that model.

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.

Hi,

Based on publish specs of the Acer AL2016W its maximum resolution is 1680x1050. If the PC is fine then perhaps the issue is that the PC is set to display higher than the 1680x1050 max res of the Acer LCD. What is required is to lower down the Screen resolution of the PC. This can be done by booting into Safe Mode (on boot, press and hold (or tap continuously) "F8", display will be "Windows Advanced Options Menu", use up/down arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and hit the Enter key. Right click on any clear area of the desktop and click on Properties, click on the Settings tab and move the Screen resolution to 1680 by 1050 pixels or lower. In some cases, you may need to lower down also the Screen refresh rate. Reboot.

hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Acer AL1716 (black) - Drops to No Signal -

Hi Eric,

Your post/description of "No Signal" and power LED changing from green to amber is indicative of just that - the monitor is not receiving any signal from the video card of the computer or the signal it is receiving is beyond its capability.

Just to verify that it is indeed the PC;'s setting that is the root of the problem and not an internal fault within the monitor, pls:
1. lower the screen resolution of your desktop's properties.
2. it may also be of help if you likewise lower the screen refresh rate.
Both of the above may be adjusted through the appropriate settings in your Display Properties.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back details of your video card (brand/model), display properties settings: a) screen resolution, color quality and Advanced/Monitor screen refresh rate.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

SOURCE: acer al1916 monitor goes black

You probably have a few dodgy caps on the power board inside. It's an easy fix if you are confident around electronics.
If not, pop it off to your local TV repair shop and have it taken care of now before it gets expensive with a complete failure.

Hope it helps =)

Hi my acer lap top is in safe mode and wont start if i buy a fix it cd will this work thanks alicia


Since you can boot in safe mode, teh you should try using the SYSTEM RESTORE to take it back to the day the problem started, try that first.

I have a Acer Aspire 5745 (CPU: Intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 2GB OS: Win 7 Home Basic) which is only 2 months old. Yesterday I started a installation setup of a game, when suddenly the system restarted....


Hi, I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

Acer laptop power button and fan problem


This is usually something to do with network booting, see if your PC is trying to boot from some sort of network device, or network address, real or imaginary, It may also be a virus, trying to connect, somewhere, at boot up, so run a rootkit check too. Check all network settings and privacy settings too.
Here is a program that runs at boot time and tells you what is going on and how to speed up your boot time, it may help. copy/paste below. http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/BootVis/4-19687-1.html

Acer 2300 Travelmate wont start up


my guess is that your ram got loosed a little bit. that is why some of your system files are not loading correctly. Try re-inserting you ram or memory. just always remember that computer parts are very fragile so do not force to dislodge anything.

My acer,mod. 1715


Rich most likely this monitor needs capacitor replacement if you can solder you can do it, you just need to order or get the bad capacitors that need replacement so you need to open the case and get at the power board. once you can get at the blown caps you can see whats damaged and what is OK usually it is 1 or 2 capacitors at about 50 cents each. and about 1 hour of your time.
let me know what your doing, good luck
