Re: Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor Blacking out

This is not a setting or driver issue! The best way to determine this is to connect the monitor up to another device to see if the same thing occurs! If it does then your backlight is in bad shape and it is starting to go bad. It will generate enough power to display some images, but when it continues to be on for a certain peirod of time it goes black. This is common when the backlight is starting to go bad!

The problem is in the power supply board often caused by one or two capacitors that open, some will show a bulge at the top making it easy to spot.

I have an acer Al1916W 19" LCD monitor. And the picture is off-center, it leaves about 1inch at the right side and a half in on the top, in 1400X900 res, and leaves about 3 inches of black at the left side...

The "native" resolution of the monitor is 1440 (not 1400) by 900.

Set the video-card to 1440-by-900 or try 1080-by-675 or try 720-by-450 or try 960-by-600.

Monitor colors are not displaying correctly

Hi, At the worst it is a blown monitor, but have hope. 1st try a new or known good lead, between monitor and PC. 2nd put monitor with own lead on good PC. if 1st works = result. if 2nd and monitor is same, suspect monitor, however, if 2nd works ok on other PC, then look at ur vid card. Either way, this test sequence should save you some $. Be lucky.

Monitor blacking out intermittently

Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.
