This may not be a Monitor problem. So if you can try to get to test monitor on another computer. Check carefully the data cable to ensure there are no bent pins. If it turnout to be a monitor problem then at only 6 months -Acer should replace it. If the monitor works - you should have the graphics card on the computer checked out. If you feel you can do this - and you can- basic checks come back as another request.

It is with your system. You might have hibernation enabled and many advanced video cards cannot recover from a bios or control panel timed hibernate. Start by using the Power Options from the control panel. Select "Always On" for everything and select the Hibernate tab to be sure that the Hibernate check box is not selected. Make sure you APPLY the settings. If the problem goes away, you can tweak the settings to get the power savings features you want without losing your system..

SOURCE: Monitor wont turn on, just green flashing light.

double check that all yor connections are tight. Open your PC case (unplug it) and ensure that all your fans are clean. It appears that your problem is due to loose cable connections, but this may be a good time to do some computer spring cleaning.

SOURCE: My monitor will not go back on. There is a green light blinking

Hi ,

In order to isolate whether its the monitor or the compurter tower you can do a self test to check if the monitor is fine .Turn the computer off and then disconnect the cable for the monitor from the back panel of the computer tower.It will be a blue connector with screws on it .Undo the screws and then disconnect it then turn the computer on ,if the monitor is fine you should get a message that would say check input signal or you will have some kind of message on the screen that tells you that the data cable to the monitor is not connected.If u dont get any message that simply means that the monitor has gone bad and needs to be replaced...

hope this helps you .....all the best

Hi. If you have a video card, try removing and reseating it then see if the lines come back...

It if does, then there's a problem with it and needs either replacement or repair...

It sounds like you have dying power supply due to bad caps just like the rest of failed ACER and all other brands as shown in my albums.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

When starting computer in the morning, the monitor display flashes analog then digital then back to analog and goes blank. Power to the monitor is on. Multiple on/off of power brings display back.

Hi, 12fixlouie here. LCD monitor may have intermittant solder joint on power supply board inside unit. May only need you to resolder it to fix. Locating it is a whole other problem in itself!!! If not into monitor "teardown" and all the other stuff that you will need to attempt a repair, then let me know right away. 12fixlouie

Pink Screen

Probably the color temperature setting or some other color settings - since you didn't specify your monitor's brand and model, it's hard to guess.
Anyway, most monitors have a "Reset to factory defaults" feature - you may want to make use of this...

Viewsonic VX2255wm - worked this morning - dead this afternoon?

The problem you have sounds like the inverter board has failed it can be repaired by replacing the inverter board which may be a cheaper option than buying a whole new monitor, you can do a search online for lcd repairs and spares to find the part you looking just state your make and model and price one up.

But before you do do that, and you feel confident that you could take the back cover off the monitor, you could have a look for blown capacitors, they are quite a comman fault in lcd monitors, once the back cover is off check the power supply board, it will be where the power cord plugs into the monitor, The capaciters are barrel like in shape with silver tops, check for any leakage from them or on the board surrounding the capacitors, also make sure they are fully flat at the top, if they are slightly domed or pretruded they will need to changed. post back your findings if you do find any bad caps ill will try to explain how to get the right ones and what do to. cheers.

Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds


Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

The laptop starts up with a pink hue

Make sure the LCD is completely attached to the system board. I've had them come partially out and cause this. If this doesn't help, your LCD and/or inverter could be going bad.

One half of Monitor is pink

Bad LCD. That line is terminal - on the back of the pannel there is a circut board that can fail a line of pixels where they will no longer switch between colors. It's a common LCD problem, but for all intents and purposes its fatal.

Philps LCD Monitor Won't turn on Straight away

That is definitely a problem with the monitor...if its under warranty have it replaced...if not...start looking for a replacement it hardly ever is worth it to have them repaired (shipping, parts, labor is usually a little less than a new monitor). Sorry

Screen not appearing straight away

It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.
