Re: Monitor green where it should be black

Resolder some components on the boards inside your monitor especially on the CRT neck board.

check also your monitor cable connection to the System unit.
also check if your video card was fully intact on the board.

First thing I would try will beusing this monitor with another PC using the same the same setup to see if it works OK. We need to narrow down the cause of the problem first since you have three parts that can be bad; Monitor, DVI cable, PC Video card/PC. It is just a process of elimination to locate the problem.

mdl34, Your monitor is listed as "time to retire" and get new unit on retrevo .com You might try "reseating" all the connections to the monitor and vga connector on the pc. examine all the connector "pins" in the cable connector and note any damaged or bent, crushed pins. Try moving monitor to a "known-good" fully booted pc to see if same problem occurs. Swap-in a good monitor to your pc to prove that pc is operating correctly. 12fixlouie

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off

The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Blinking green power light and monitor doesn't work

I recently had the same problem occur on my LCD Panel and this is the response I received from ACER.

Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the inconvenience that you have experienced. If the green power on LED blinks rapidly, it means that the monitor is not getting any signal from the computer. It is possible that the monitor may have faulty internal component, I suggest that you send your monitor to a local repair shop to have it tested properly.
