Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer 1716 seems to start but will not pick up signal from OS

I turn monitor and computer on
Picks up splash screen for computer (Dell)
Picks up splash screen for OS (linux)
Initially will pick up OS for a while (several boots)
eventually after the OS has updated a few times the monitor stops
recognizing the OS at all. Very confusing
I have tried unplugging the monitor in case it is overheating no change
I have tried going thru 'awake from sleep' actions just in case usually nothing.

Frustrated

    Have not tried on my apple
    using linux (ubuntu 9.04) and/or Windows XP
    in both cases picks up computer splash screen
    then OS splash (start up) screens but will only shows black screen from that point on. I know that it actually boots up by the musical tones it plays.
    and the fact that with a little ( a lot actually ) of
    fudging I can occasionally get into the Linux Desktop

There probably is an error in the hard drive, since its not booting up. I would replace the hard drive, or take it to your local computer repair shop. I hope this helps!

My dell TFT monitor picks power, the power led is ...


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

TURNS ON. I SEE "ACER" ON THE SCREEN AND THEN IT SAY NO SIGNAL AND GOES TO BLACK.


You are seeing the monitor's splash screen that tells you the monitor is OK. It is not receiving a signal from the computer. That's the problem

Acer monitor only display for about 3 to 4 second


Sounds like a busted syncing circuit, probably due to a condenser. It takes about that time to heat or overcharge, at which point a safety feature will turn off the display.

You just MIGHT get some more life hours out of the monitor by tuning it to a lower resolution, but it will buy you a month even in the best hypothesis.

I'm afraid the monitor is in for a repair/replacement.

External display not displaying!


When you are able to view a video clip on the external monitor, We can rule out the issue with the software. Probably you need to check the connections and also the external monitor settings in the display. The reload might have changed the old setup

What do you mean by it takes awhile to come on? Sometimes with these monitors depending on the type you have it takes time for the PC to pick up the signal. I have my PC hooked up to a KVM switch and it takes about 10 to 20 seconds for my monitors signal to be recognized.
