Question about Computers & Internet
A while ago I noticed my monitor wouldn't come on right when turning my computer on. Thinking it was just the cord I didnt pay much attention to it. However it started getting much worse.... I purchased a new cord thinking that would fix my issues. It Did not! When turning my computer on or even after it goes in sleep mode...my monitor shuts off...you can see a very dull faint screen (start up screen)... ut if I unplug and plug my montior many times it will flicker on ( complete brightness..normal) then flick off a couple times before completely staying on. I have had monitors dye before but this seems very weird to me. Is this a certain sign my lcd is dying??
Acer are great products, I have had lots and all worked well.
There are no user serviceable parts on these flat panel's..
Use your warranty if available. This is why buying the extended warranty on expensive electronics is a good policy.
Find a nearby electronics repair shop and get it checked over.

The problem is in the "soft switch" technology: On some of Sylvania's newer monitors they have incorporated what is called "soft switch" technology. This allows your ATX power supplied computer to turn your monitor on and off using it?s software controls. Therefore, your monitor?s light will always stay on blinking even when your computer is off. The monitor in normal operation consumes about 80W of power; in the "OFF" state it will be reduced below 8W. The "OFF" mode of the monitor can be controlled by the PC input signal or by pushing the soft-power button to disable the PC signal control for manually turning off the monitor screen. Thus, when the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode it still consumes a very small amount of power. For the purpose of making it noticeable to the user that the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode, we designed the power indicator to provide for a slow blinking signal (every 2 seconds). If you need to totally turn off the power, then the power cord would have to be unplugged. The same is true of the PC itself, but the PC does not provide for notification while in "OFF" mode.

To amplify ~1 The basic computer motherboard has 'On board Graphics'- that is a graphics ability built into the system This is the 3x5 pin blue socket grouped with the USB PS2 and other sockets in a common panel under the Power Inlet. If the machine has an additional Graphics card this will be the same 3x5 socket duplicated here with a another socket. So try both. You could also check the BIOS settings Bios setting are achieved by pressing delete[ or another key - this will be shown which in the start screen] on the computer as soon as you switch on, where by a crude blue/yellow screen will come up. But you will need the hand book to hand to delve further, Rest assure I do not think it is a Monitor problem- but lack of signal from the computer.

SOURCE: Wont work with new computer
Since this was a new out of the box computer, Safe Mode was not allowed. In order to change monitor settings (resolution), I had to use another monitor, in this case a newer CRT. With the CRT, the computer booted up, no problem. Once booted, I turned down the monitor resolution and saved. Now when the Princeton LCD was plugged in and the computer restarted, everything works fine. Now the resolution could be set to limits of the monitor.

The Problem may be due to the defective inverter unit inside the monitor. Dry to resolder if any dry joint on the inverter PCB or replace the inverter board.
