Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor problem ggOk my monitor was working fine except for the fact that the color seemms lighter than usual (im using an acer lcd monitor btw) so i pressed the menu button on the monitor and went to reset thinking it would put the monitor settings back to defualt after the monitor did whatever it does when yuo click reset.. the monitor nows has transparent thick lines rolling for the bottom of the monitor to the top.. is there anyway to fix that or have ai just killed my monitor? (hard to believe using the monitors reset option would kill it lol). My temp fis was to open the monitor menu again and set the brightness as high as it can go which made the lines "disappear" (i.e theyre probably still there but the screen is so bright you dont notice them) but now sites have a wierd metallic grey look to them (better than the lines though). However after a day of those settings now i cant use my pc for more than 30 secs without the screen fading to complete white making it unable to see/show anything. The only way to fix that problem was to put the brightness down to a normal setting but now the lines are there... any idea onm how to fix this or would i have to get a new monitor?

    I have the same problem It was working fine and I went in the other room for a few minutes and came back and it had scrolling vertical BAR lines on it! I've only had it for about 2 weeks bought it from a friend that only used it a couple times.... He said he had never seen it do that way before... Anyway maybe it will fix it self can figure it out I have tried every set I can think of to fix it...

Sounds like you have a coincidental hardware failure. The reset button usually sets the monitor to factory default which is good in most uses. A rolling pattern on the screen is occasionally due to electronic interferrence such as a mobile phone in the vacinity. As you say your screen is fading completely suggests a hardware failure and nothing to do with your pressing the reset. If your monitor is less than 3 years old (standard screen warranty) I would contact the manufacturer and they may send you a new one.

Connecting an external monitor to acer 5720


I have had this before with my Dell Latitude C540/640. I don't know the ACER 5720 but here's a couple possible fixes for you.

1. Press the function key ( "fn" key, generally a blue key or blue lettering and usually in the bottom left corner of your keyboard) and press F8 (may be a different key on your laptop, again, not familure with the acer. The key usually has either CRT/LCD printed on it, or two monitors on it, one its just an outline of a monitor and the other is filled in. This will run you laptop through the three monitor options it has. (LCD - LCD & External - Just External)

2. Try closing and opening the lid of your laptop. Sounds a bit strange but it works sometimes for me. My guess is when you close you screen it would "dim/turn off" the LCD and re-opening it convinces it to turn the screen back on.

Hope this helps!

Acer's x193w killing my eyes..please help


First off, LCD monitors have what is called a 'native resolution' and that is why it is recommended to be at 1440 x 900. That is the resolution they work best at. My first suggestion is to try to move the monitor closer to you. If that is not possible, try right-clicking on your desktop, click on the Properties tab (That is where you change the resolution. I am doing this for a Windows XP machine - if you are running Vista please let me know and I will try to walk you through it there). Click on the "Advanced" button and in the "General" tab, there should be a "DPI Setting" drop down box. There is usually 96 DPI and 120 DPI. Try 120 DPI and see if that helps.

Second, try using your monitor's menu settings to help the color settings. On your monitor there is a "Menu" button of some sort. Press that and select "Acer eColor Management" and try "Text Mode" to see if that is easier on your eyes. You can also manually adjust the screen and lower the strength of the red color by picking "User" instead of "Acer eColor Management" and selecting the icon that looks like a pyramid of 3 dots. Try adjusting the Red slider and see if that helps.

Al 1916 problem


really? here's the thing..try to check the display settings manually.press the menu button of your monitor then try adjust the contrast, brightness and colors as well to your desired level..if your'e using LCD monitors, these are very sensitive and can be easily damaged if don't handle it very well..don't press the auto button always because it will automatically adjust the settings every now and then..

Monitor problem


It sounds to me like your monitor is going......if the computer itself is functioning fine, and you have even reset the monitor to the default, and still having problems, I would say it's time for a new monitor. You can find reasonable ones on ebay. I got two 19" monitors off of there and I am thrilled with them. Just be sure to check the ratings of the seller before bidding or buying.
Good luck.

These "pressure marks" can only be fixed by replacing the LCD panel, which is not economical. The panels usually cost as much as or more than the monitor itself, unoless you can find a good used one.
