Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor
I have an ACER AL1716 17" LCD Monitor that constantly keeps resetting itself when I turn it on. You will see the Acer Logo come on then the screen goes black and the logo comes back on and continues to repeat. It is almost like it keeps resetting itself. Any ideas? Capacitor in the power supply maybe?
SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Acer AL1716 Power problem?
i have experienced the same problem (power cycles on and off and on and off... nothing but Acer logo and black screen) on 2 Acer model 1706 A version 1706 Ab monitors both built in July 2006. Before the customer reported the 2nd monitor with the same problem, i sent the 1st one into Acer for warranty service (after testing in on 4 machines w/4 different video cards). They shipped it back with a paper saying the monitor was repaired. I returned the monitor to the customer and it exhibited the same symptoms (aka, not repaired). Could there have been a bad batch in July 2006? When I plug a new Acer AL1716 monitor into the same computers, I have no problems at all.

The problem on your monitor is a bad power supply. Because of heat buildup in LCD monitors parts called capacitors overheat and blow out. You can go to our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and see what to look for. If you open your monitor and see blown capacitors that look like the pictures on our site then replace the bad ones and you should be back going. Email me if you have additional questions or if you need to get the capacitors, we carry them in stock.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
