Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I've had this monitor about 2 years, I think...and all of the sudden it comes on for a second (green light on) and then it turns right back off (amber light)...I'm assuming sleep mode (since it retains power). I have switched the power cord as suggested by local retail store...but no fix.
SOURCE: monitor doesn't work
I'd try this monitor on a spare computer. It sounds like the video card (motherboard integrated or otherwise)is not putting out any video information or missing sync signals. The monitor must receive these signals or it will go into standy/sleep mode. If the computer has integrated (on motherboard) video, check your bios settings to see if it is properly enabled. If it has a slot video board, then try a different video board. Your present board might be dead. Another possibility is a bad cable connection. check the connectors for bent pins. Assuming the connector is the standard HDB-15, it is easy to bend a pin over.

SOURCE: Monitor problem
I used to repair a monitor from Dell. You might have to check what wrong with
your monitor when it went back by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the
best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons
or any image, there will be a minor problem like broken lamps and it is very
easy to replace. But the most important part is you need to know how to
teardown the screen. . If you cannot see anything on the screen,
there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps
first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on
the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you
better go get a technician to do so.
Hope this help you to examine your monitor. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.

The problem with the Mag lt916s is that it is made with cheap capacitors. If you are interesnted it is a cheap and easy fix. Open it up, which is the hardest part. And replace the six 470uf 105 degree 25v capacitors and maybe even the smaller 220uf one next to them. You will see a bump on the top of bad capacitors most of the time. There are some videos to watch on Youtube showing you how to make the repair.

The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.
