Question about Acer Al2416WD LCD Monitor

Acer AL2416W 24" Monitor switches off and on after a few minutes

My monitor keeps switching off and then back on after every few minutes. It does this most frequently when I use a 1920x1200 resolution but also [less frequently] when I use 1600x1200.
It's native resolution is meant to be 1920x1200 so I cant understand why it wont hold that resolution? I just bought it yesterday.
I'm having the same pronblem when I connect my Xbox 360 to it via VGA or when I connect it to my laptop as an external monitor (also via VGA).
Could you please advise how to fix this?
It cant be a graphics issue as it still happened with my Xbox 360 connected.
Kind regards,
omeni I have the same problem on my Monitor too. Acer Monitor AL2416W. It keep switching on and off frequently. I sent the monitor back to Acer Service Unit and they sent me back saying that they changed the Inverter Board. Part Number: 55.L61V2.014 . But I still have the problem exists in my monitor.
I have spent $30 through USPS in sending the monitor to them to Texas. But they have send me back with the same problem again. What should I do now?
Please help.

The most common failure in LCD monitors is capacitor burnout in the power supply. If that was the issue, and the service tech used the same brand of capacitor or a substitute with an inadequate ripple current rating, the problem would happen again. I have had excellent results using Panasonic FR-series capacitors as replacements, especially if there is space to go to one with the next higher voltage rating (usually also has a higher ripple current rating). The price is not too high if purchased from a general components supplier such as Mouser Electronics or Digi-Key Corporation.

A burned-out capacitor would have a domed top and may show signs of leakage through the safety vent cut into the top. Compare the bad caps marked in red with the good one on the right:

Acer Monitor Not Staying On


It sounds like there's a problem with the monitor itself. It may be that the lamp in the computer is dying, which would explain why it keeps going out. Other possibility is that the monitor isn't receiving power properly either through the cable or inside the monitor itself.

If your're not the kind of person who wouldn't mind opening the monitor up and hopping in there, then I recommend you take it somewhere it can be diagnosed like Best Buy.

Hope I helped :)

I see many monitor with that trouble.
When you turn on comp., you can have a picture on monitor about 10-30 min. and that go in black screen, or If you change resolution again go in black screen.
You must repair monitor or bay another.

Screan comes on for 1 second then goes black. switch light showes recieving signal.

This Acer 2416w has problems with weak capacitors on the inverter board causing shorting of the driver FETs. Replacing caps and shorted FETs may solve the malfunction.

My acer AL2416w monitor turns on to a black screen

I have 2 Acer AL2416W monitors that i have been using for 2 years. There has been a handful of times i would turn my computer on in the morning and the screen would be black and Acer would lightly flash on the monitor 1 time. Typically a restart would take care of the problem. Last week the monitor blacked out and i can't get it to work. Any suggestions?? I switched ports on the computer to verify it wasn't the video card and tried new DVI cables to verify it wasn't those? Is this fixable??

Acer AL2416W 24" Monitor switches off and on after a few minutes

Good trouble shooting. So it most likely is the monitor. Can you talk to your vendor about a replacement? There could be a voltage problem feeding the monitor. Is it set for the correct voltage? Can you check the voltage feeding the monitor? Other than that, there is a circuit problem in the monitor.

Mounting an Acer AL2416 to the wall

Hello Poet,

I recently purchased two of the Acer AL2416W to mount onto a monitor stand. I ran into the same problem, it looks as though you have to remove the entire rear of the Monitor to take the factory leg off. I believe I was trying to make it too complex, just gently pry the rear cover off of the hinge this will expose 4 screws remove these and you are all set.
