    Yes I have another monitor on that computer and it displays fine. I plugged the ACER monitor into a different computer and the flashing persists.

Please try the monitor with another computer and also try your computer with another monitor, this will help to narrow down where exactly the issue is.

if another monitor flashes in a similiar way with your computer then the issue is not with the monitor its the video card.

if the other monitor works prefectly or the monitor does the same flashing when connected to another working computer then the issue is in the monitor.

How old is it and do you have warranty?
Your monitor will most likely require repairs, since you have backlight the inverter and backlight should be working normally the issue then is most likely on the main board of the display or the part of the board where the signal comes in, have you tried another input if this one has another option?

    Hows your warranty? My displays have a 3 year warranty, check yours, how old is it and how long of a warranty you got with it? contact your dealer or acer for warranty repairs if possible.

Monitor works intermittently


Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.

Acer AL 1715 monitor flashes 2x and dies


LCD panels use cold-cathode fluorescent bulbs to make the light necessary for them to show images. What you're describing is something I've seen in panels where the bulbs were dying or dead. it's also possible that the controller for the bulbs is also on the fritz.

sounds like a slightly damaged power supply. try powering up with an equivalent supply. if only an ac wall cord is plugged in for power, then internal supply is at fault
