Question about Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer auto config

I have an acer flat panel LCD moniter (not sure which one) that has worked perectly for three years. Then one day (with no new hardware or software added to the computer) it decides that it will keep flicking up with 'auto config please wait which flashes on and off the screen. THIS IS ANOYING AS HELL. I'v checked that the resolution is set to 1280x1240, and the refresh rate is 60Hz

    I worked out with problem. To fix all you need is a good hard FLICK on the auto-config button. If not a wack with something harder. There must have been something inside not quite right, perhaps something sticking it down. Trying to pull it out didn't work, but a HARD flick did the trick for me.

Dark Screen on Acer Aspire 5735z

That sounds like the bulb in the screen is blown. I have changed them at times but it is very tricky and I'm pretty sure you won't find a reputable place to do it for you.
Effectively in answer to your question the only rational solution is to change the LCD panel, it's not very difficult to do on the aspires, just a few screws and peel off the tape holding the screen connector in place, disconnect the inverter cables, (pink and white) and swop for the new panel. check ebay etc for a new LCD panel they're not that expensive. Try to get a new one instead of a second hand one. to find out what panel you need, you'll have to open the screen and look at the back, it'll have a paper sticker showing the model number.

I just purchased a acer moniter ...I plugged it in and the picture looks a little distorted (my grand daughter says I am not use to the new flat screen) on the moniter was a film cover that said make sure...

If your on XP you can right click on the empty desktop and go to properties, Under the settings tab you will find options for screen resolutions. If your on Vista or 7 you right click on empty desktop space and go to screen resolution, There again you will easily find your settings for your screen resolution. Click apply and then click OK after that lay back and enjoy your screens clarity.

New acer 19 " moniter plug in will not turn on ?

Try other outlet, check the power cord if it contacted the monitor. If nothing happened, maybe it's factory defect, since it still under warranty, you can still change it.
