Question about Acer AL2016 W 20" TFT LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor comes up shows "acer" then says no signal and goes black

When the monitor is turned on it appears to work - the "acer" name comes up and then the words "no signal". As soon as no signal comes on the sceen it goes to black and the light turns orange. The pc has a new video card installed and tests okay on other monitors, a new cable between pc and monitor has been installed also - still no success Hello, I have the same no signal problem as a few others seem to be having, All I did was unpluf the monitor from the computer when it was shut off, so it wouldn't get damaged while I hung a shelf. When I was done I hooked the monitor up again and have been trying to turn my computer on for 2 hours now. The system starts up and I get the beep, but the monitor only shows the acer logo (AL2016W) and then goes black, tells me no signal and then shuts off turning the light orange. I have had this problem before i cannot remember how I resolved it. I have tried turning the system off, unplugging and re-plugging everything; i have tried the unplug the monitor and hold the power button for "cold" boot up; i have moved my ram to a different slot and back again, inserted the acer quick start cd, checked for bent pins, even gave the tower a "loving" tap and nothing has worked so far. I know that the tower, hardware and the monitor are all still working but I just can't get a picture. Any and all help if greatly appreciated!

The interface between the monitor and the cable might need replacement. Please check it.

My acer monitor p191w will turn on acer logo comes on goes black then a screen comes out saying no signal then turns of light turns yellow ...tried restarting monitor nothing


Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.

When turning on my monitor the Acer name appears then disappears and a box that reads "no signal" appears. Then the screen goes blank and the blue power button turns yellow.


This means that your monitor is not receiving a signal from your computer. The easiest way to fix this is to plug the monitor into the computer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Acer al1922 monitor no signal:


If it does the same with other PC then you need to open it up and first thing to look for are bad caps in the power supply, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps, transistors, transformers, lamps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside, and always replace with good quality caps such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY.

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
