Monitor Acer Problem

I was reading another persons monitor problem that i'm getting on my monitor. The monitor comes on with the green light on says acer on the screen then no signal then goes out the amber light comes on and nothing on the screen, i've check the cables, and i have tried another monitor with the same thing happening. I tried this acer 19 monitor on another tower and the monitor works so it isn't the monitor that is the problem i have a fujitsu siemens scaleo p tower if you got any ideas it would be most helpful. Many Thanks Des

I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

correodemie, Your ACER AL2016 will need to have it's "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter supply" trouble shooted and repaired. DIY repair cost less than $30. Out of warranty service $35 to $75, more if circuit board replaced. Read my and other techs FIXYA profiles to discover all the options you have for your BLACK screen symptom. Follow the links to other web sites for even more useful info. DO THAT before you do anything else. 12fixlouie

My Acer AL1714 monitor was given to me, the person that gave it to me said last time the last time it was connected it work but the monitor had been stored for about 2 years. So I bought a 19V-2.3A power...


mccampbell71 Probably a failure of inverter circuit(dc to ac 600-1100vac) to light-up (sustain) "cold-cathode-fluorescent lamps" causing the "switch-mode-power-supply" to go into full or partial SHUTDOWN mode. Black Screen of Death strikes again!!! The Question I have is why did you BUY a "black-brick" supply? Did the other one fall out of the car or get run over by a train? Only you will be able to make the decision of to REPAIR or Trade-in for new. You are no different than 5000 others worldwide (all brands) who have monitor's with BSOD! Yes, some (75-90%) can be saved to work 1-3 more years! Read some of my other responses in my profiles (12fixlouie aka louie12fix) to learn of the options you have open to you. Bye for now 12fixlouie If this info was of some use please rate on fixya.

Hi...there,
It's turns blue to power safe mode (yellow) it's prevent futher damaged to your monitor. It's seems you got a busted backlight inverter. Need to replaced a new one...Since you only got it for a few months, send it back to Acer for a replacement of a new backlight inverter... Have a nice day!

The problem may not be the monitor. Acer AL1714 is known for its weak power supply unit. Unplug power supply from monitor. If the green light on monitor comes on but goes out quickly, the power supply is the culprit!
