Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor
Ok so my acer1717 moniter turns on for a second or so then it flickers n dies n it hisses... when i turn it on it does this twice ... sometimes it stays longer than other times but its nothing that i can work on... it only lasts like 3 seconds tops ... please help
Include me in the people burnt (no pun intended) by crappy quality Acer monitors. Will never buy their stuff again. Ironically, this infrequently used external monitor burnt out overnight, just a few hours after I had actually checked out and decided to buy an Acer Windows 8 15.6" i5 laptop. Definitely not buying Acer again.

I had the same kind of prob with my acer monitor. I just replaced the cap with same capacity, voltage & heating level & now my monitor works perfectly.
Please do not try to this yourself if u have less knowledge in electronics. It's dangerous since the capacitor can hold high voltage even if disconnected from mains supply. Contacting a electronic technician will be the best way.
Again, the temperature level is for this cap is 105. You should not use 85 (Normal temperature) caps since it can explode or damage your monitor & also be dangerous. I used my acer monitor for over 5 years & it worked perfectly till yesterday. I think it's still good and usable..

Mine does this, if i repeatedly keep turning it on and off, it can take between 3 to 30 tries, but eventually itll stay on.

You can buy the Power-Inverter board on ebay.

Monitor is fried, problem with the inverter but you can't buy parts for it and would have to get a new monitor. I've seen the problem many times before.
