Make sure you unplug the power the monitor and let it set for 5-10 Minutes to drain off any residual voltage. I just repaired a FP7317 with the same problem. I cleaned up bad soldering and there are 2 small transistors that are marked 2N7000. on the end of the circuit board where the lamps plug in. The are N Channel Field Effect Transistors that are for high speed, high voltage switching. One of these went open on the monitor,I replaced the pair of Transistors and it's now working fine. There's a monitoring circuit on the power supply for backlights, whether it be on a Monitor or LCD TV. If one output to a lamp goes out, the comparator senses it and shuts all the outputs down. This is known as "Protection Mode" Had the same thing happen on a 32" Funai LCD TV. It was given to me and I replaced a $5 transformer and now it's working well. I also changed out the Electrolytic caps in the power supply while I had the board out just in case one of those let go later on. The monitor worked with just the transistor replacement though. Good luck, I hope this helps.

Normal behavior. Most of the lcd monitors ( not all) show this message. You can safely turn off the monitor once you shutdown your computer.

Cannot fit to screen size


You probably need to install a display driver for this monitor on your netbook. http://us.aoc.com/monitor_displays/e950swn

My monitor screen goes black it lights up about half the scree when i first turn it on then blinks like a light bulb that is not screwed in all the way then goes completly black acer al2002w


vandetucker, You should use your warranty and use it NOW!! When "IT" goes to "BLACK" can you see the WIN-desktop when holding a bright flashlight at different angles 1 inch from screen??? How old is unit? How many "ON" hours does it have? Your monitor isn't any different than a Gateway or LG or Phillips, VIEWSONIC, SHARP, Samsung, Sony, Dell!!! You will need to read a few of my other responses and follow some of the links to web pages that you find already in my profile on fixya, so that you will know what questions to ask about repairing your unit. Let me know WHAT YOU WANT TO DO after you have done some research about your BLACK SCREEN lcd monitor. Here is an option I just know you will love. You can do the trade for new 2010 monitor unit and the technician in the back of the computer store just might put $6 $8 in parts into your old AL2002WSD and have a nice wide screen for the new year. Yeah, and your monitor "blinks like a light bulb" !!! Oh my!! How right you are!!! Do you know anything about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps"? You should also see if Acer has a cash+old swapout program for a same model refurbished unit??? You should also give ACER a little bit of lip about the poor reliability of their short lifespan electronic ballasts and CCFL lamps. Like to know what your going to do! 12fixlouie Bye for now

Well heres the story my sister made the screen fall on the floor one day (it fell on a very soft rug) every thing worked fine no problems but then a couple months later it started with this doesnt wana...


bamboboy, Stop yelling at your sister! ! ! If it worked fine after falling to the floor then there is something else wrong! First Prove that the pc works with a KNOWN GOOD monitor. Next, you may want to do the flashlight test with your BAD lcd monitor. Reconnect monitor to an already fully booted pc with the WIN-desktop screen showing. Then and only then turn on your LCD monitor and note what happens. If still black screen is what you see, then shine a bright light about 1" from screen and look very closely to see if the desktop is being displayed even though the screen appears BLACK. If the power supply is only partly bad you may see the desktop. I suspect that you have a power supply problem from your description. You should visit YOUTUBE and search for video clips of LCD monitor disassembly and typical repairs of units that have similar BLACK screen symptoms such as yours. You need to read more posts on fixya that I and others have made on other brands of LCD monitors that have same symptom. You will find plenty of them!! Get back to me after doing test and some more research. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel on aol.com Bye for now.

My monitor works for a little while, then goes black.


Your power-inverter board needs an overhaul.
Probably in need of the standard capacitor replacement.
OR
a bulb in the screen is bad (a bad bulb will usually show symptoms)
It will flicker, or will look pinkishish for a bit or dark in the middle top or bottom of the screen.
