Data Cable cut on ACER AL1715sm

Hi, I have Acer AL1715sm and the cable is cut. About 5cm from display. The story is that this monitor was stolen and I lost my hope to see it ever again. Those bastards cut the cable and left me a cable attached to PC. My PC is behind the wall and wires are going through wall to monitor in other room.  So I threw away that cable what was left. But one day police called me because they found my monitor and other stuff!!. So now I just have this monitor with cable cut on the back. I have opened it and all I could find out that there are colored wires (all of the different color) and don't know how to find out which wire is which . Please help me!! Thank You.

Re: Data Cable cut on ACER AL1715sm

Hi, I have AL1716 so pretty the same - both cables (power and analog VGA cable) are inserted into sockets, probably your VGA cable can be screwed in - just unscrew it and go to nearest PC shop to buy new one. What a good cops you have !!

Connect my Acer monitor to my digital cable box.

Not sure what your cable box outputs but connect your cable box to a tv and try changing the resolution of your cable box to 1600x900 or less if there is such a setting; the monitor will not display resolutions higher than 1600x900

make sure the data cable is firmly connected to the pc, if yes then your data cable is faulty. look for bent pins or cable cuts. also test on a known working cpu, if all fails take it to a repair shop

Hi, I have an Acer AL1715s monitor and the VGA cable is cut about 5 cm from the backside. The monitor has no VGA input on the back but is connected inside with a 13 pin connector. I have to make a new...

you have a rgb connection or a dvi connection.

you are in a bad spot, the plug is sealed when molded. maybe ebay has a defective monitor and you could take the cable off it.

Monitors will usually snap apart with a butter knife.
