Question about Acer AL1511 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer AL11511 I have found this product very disturbing with too much brightness. When I play DVD's I find the picture on the monitor is dark but when I am close the picture brights up alot. I notice other product types don't have this problem. The resolution of brightness and contrast seems to be an acceptable level. Is there any solution to this problem so that its not too bright and resolves the DVD problem. Even when doing MS Word docs the brightness has a terrible effect. Please advise accordingly. Thanking you, Roy

Re: Acer AL11511

To even things out you need to use the controls on the monitor to lower the brightrnes. to acceptable levels. When playing a DVD there are seperate controls in the software and your graphics driver to adjust the Video Overly settings. Look for settings called gamma and brightness in the video overlay settings in the windows display properties panel. This should help even things out some. Deal is to crank down the brightness on the monitor and crank it up in the video settings in windows. It will make the DVD's brighter and rest of the time the regular screen darker.

It sounds like a backlight or inverter problem. You can verify this by using a bright light to shine on the screen surface. If you can see the picture (but it will be very dark) that means that the backlight which illuminates the screen from behind. You would have to replace the inverter to test it, but there is good news: These are pretty difficult to find parts for, and not an easy repair for an amateur; acer products usually have a 3 year warranty on the backlight/inverter system, so I would start there.

My acer makes a whining noise whenever its brightness is set to low how can i fix it?

that buzzing noise is frequency response from the cathodes (back lights) and the inverter inside that monitor.

Personally, i'd keep the brightness up a bit more to alleviate the issue. I'd also check to see if the power that is going to the device is clean. Sometimes there can be issue with power causing frequency disturbance and can cause some pretty random issues with power sensitive devices.

Try running a battery backup or power strip to see if it helps.

Picture is dark. How do I adjust brightness

Look on your keypad. You should see two the windows key and the sun that points up. That will increase the brightness. Also if you run on batteries it's not as bright as running on AC power in order to say battery life.

Frequency disturbance at monitor

evidently there is a loose connection within one of the ribbon cables going to the screen, you will have to open the monitor and reseat them.

It could be a few things, it may be the monitor itself, which naturally has dark picture.
Or by factory default the monitor has low brightness.
Try going into the menu and putting the brightess up.
Most monitors have low brightness by default.
have a happy new year.
