Question about Acer AL1916B 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor won't turn on.

I've had my Acer AL1916 for likr 9 mos. I left for a night at my parents and when I came back, it wouldn't turn on. When I plug the monitor in, it quickly flashes green and then off, repeat.. My old monitor works, but it is smaller, so I'd like to figure out what is going on with it. I would be eternally grateful if someone can help me out with my problem.

How to change monitor aspect ratio for acer AL1916

The aspect ratio is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon (x:y). and they actually represent the relation between width and height of (in your case) your monitor.

Did you mean to change the resolution of your monitor? Could you please explain your problem in more detail? What is it exactly you want to achieve?

I have an acer monitor model #al1916 when I turn it on it sstays on about 5 second and shut back down

First, check all electrolytic capacitors and replace those which are blown or rounded. Next, if when it shuts down the green LED also turns off, then
on the controller PCB there's tiny transistor-like chip U406. Remove it from the board and try to turn the monitor on. That's reset circuit, you may live without it.

I was given a 2003 Acer AL1916 monitor and came home and hooked it up to my old Compaq presario computer. The screen is fine but the audio is barely audible. I had speakers hooked to the side of my old...

The speakers are not supposed to plug into the monitor, they will plug into the speaker jack on the back of your computer (usually a green plug or it will have a picture of a speaker next to it)
Hope this helps
Good Luck!

Acer moniter model AL1916

Check the cables and the computer connection VGA outlet.
If doesn't work and your monitor is under warranty ACER will repair your monitor for free.
If not, the better option is get a new one instead of repair due the high cost.

Green Flash power only on one computer

It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.
