My acer al2216w screen flashes black and white every few seconds. power light is on with no flashing

Replaced this monitor with another. replacement works fine. This monitor had been working for a couple of years before all this started to happen. Started flashing on and off only once in a while. Then got more frequent. finely got to the point that it is constantly flashing.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

3/4 light up means it is not getting the full drive voltgae or poor solder jopints at the end of the lamps, try swappin the top and bottom lamp assemblies to see if the problem follows.
You need a set of test lamps for testing the inverter circuits.

not likely the lamp, turn it on with hooked to computer, shine an flash light at angle to screen and see if you see the desktop. if you don't then the power supply is at fault I would think. Since it sounds like your ok with opening it up do so and look at the supply, the caps!
