Black Mark Hi, My brother accidently so he says pressed his finger on to the Acer screen and now there's this black mark type going from the top right to the bottom right and the colour around it is white- different to the rest of the screen. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

Re: Black Mark

Only sounds as if he has damaged the pixels so much they don't display the colour properly any more, if it is still under warranty get it replaced by Acer, if not take it to an electronics store like pc world and they might be able to fix it for a price.

My Acer LCD Monitor shows the , auto Configuration menu and is on a black screen.

How did the auto configuration came about? Try pressing the buttons before powering up. Maybe some of it are stuck.

On my Dell ST2210 monitor there is a small dark patch approximately 0.25 inches by 0.1 inches. It is located just to the right of my Start button along the lower part of the Taskbar. Is there any way this...

Not really, this looks like a pressure mark which has damaged the screen surface. Easily done by pressing the screen with a finger or pencil / pen.

Have black mark right hand side off screen from top to bottom about 1in wide also a black circle about 2in in cicrumfrance on my monitor which is 28in can you give me some advice on what is wrong also...

Almost sounds like the screen is broken if you have lines and a black circle which means somebody cracked it. Need to replace that monitor since the screen is not available for that model.

Check the connectors. They may be loose else your power cable is giving trouble.

Try connection another device to the socket you are using and check if that is the problem.

Mark this problem as solved if you manage.

Sometimes when I change the settings profile from "User" to "Graphics," a black border appears on the screen and some of the viewing window is off the screen. Usually when I click the "Graphics" profile...

All LCD displays have an "Auto" button press it and see if that fixs it. should be aparent what it does if it does it. but basicly it alines the picture with the screen. when you change back to user profile you may need to press it again.

Blinking lights when PC is s.down

Not sure what happened as I had a whole message typed and lost it. Here I go again. I hope it doesn't post twice.

We have an Acer AL1715 monitor which started having this problem after a power surge. It was the only piece of equipment affected by the surge. I searched for an answer when it happened but got nowhere. I contacted Acer about this and they told me I would have to bring it to a tech to be looked at. Decided on a whim today to try Googling again and found this website and Q&As.

Though we didn't know what "Brunin" was nor saw an "F" change color, we did get into the Menu on the monitor and used the right and left arrows to see what was there. We decided to use "Reset" by highlighting it and pressing the "Menu" button for "Enter".

This appears to have solved the problem for us. The monitor is no longer toggling colored screens when idle nor when the computer is off.

Thank you for solving our problem. It has been very annoying for the user and anyone sitting across from her monitor during a meeting.

Screen Adjustment

On your monitor at the bottom there is 3 buttons. The one all the way to the left is the "menu" button. The next one (going right) is the "NEGATIVE" button. The next one (going right) is the "POSITIVE" button.

You can move your screen around. First, start by pressing the menu button.Then, a menu in blue, with a bunch of little white icons will appear. Next, go over two icons by pressing the positive button twice. Then, proceed to push in the "menu" button again. A bar will appear. By pressing your negative button, your screen will move left. Pressing your positive button will make your screen move right. Adjust your screen until the black on both sides are of even proportion. Then, press the menu button to return to the orginal menu you started at. Proceed to press your positive button two more times. Then, press your menu button. Then, once again, use your positive button, and your negative button to adjust your screen to even out the black on the top and bottom.
