Question about Acer AC 713 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Flashing monitor hi all, i have an ACER AC713 (17") monitor which has been functioning satisfactorily for the last 3 years. but today when i switched on the PC, the monitor started flashing the images with time period of 1-2 s. i then removed the two speakers which were kept near it. although the flashing continued for some more time, the picture eventually stabilised after about 20 minutes or so. my ram had gone bad yesterday and had to replace it. so im woried whether the present problem is also related to some circuitry or power module. kindly advise.

Re: flashing monitor

The ram itself is not related to your problem, but check the VGA lead connections at both ends and see if the connection is loose and also check the power cable. Other than that it may be the monitor circuitry or CRT itself thats the problem and after warming up the problem goes away, so a repair may be needed or a replacement monitor.

It's probally the inverter board that drives the backlight in your monitor is failing causing the digital board to reset. I think Acer has a 3 yr warranty. If the monitor is less than 3 years, I would call them and ask them to repair it. They will fix it for free if it less than 3 yrs old, it will only cost to you is shipping it to TX. Hope this helps.

Yes. Flashing LED with no image on the screen is the first sign of the power supply gets overloaded. That may be caused by blown/shorted electrolytic capacitors. Open the monitor, take metal lid off and observe for those caps which are rounded on top. Replace them with proper ones.

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 has a 3 year coverage on the LCD Monitors.
I have seen this before the power supply inside the screen has went bad.

I would contact Acer Support 1-800-816-2237.
You will have to pay for shipping just so you know.

I hope this helps please let me know..

Faulty monitor after one year

Hi Shirley,

In Singapore, Acer monitor is 3 years warranty.

If the your monitor is out-of-warranty, please consider replacing. It is cheaper than repair.

Performance life is normally around 2.5 yrs ++. Normal faults is due to manufacturing defects.
