Re: monitor colours get pinkish red

The lamps have not failed as you believe Steve. If they fail, then a protection circuit inside will shut them off all together.

Acers have a habit of capacitors failing. This in turn sends dodgy power to the inverter circuit and through to the lamps.

This is not a design flaw, it's just age. Capacitors can die early of course, but it's not common for them to go before the warranty period is up at least. Normally 3-5 years is what you can expect from them.

If you understand electronics then the job will be easy, if not have your local TV tech give it the once over before real damage is done.

The problem may not be the monitor. Acer AL1714 is known for its weak power supply unit. Unplug power supply from monitor. If the green light on monitor comes on but goes out quickly, the power supply is the culprit!
