Question about Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor
Hi, I have had an AL1711 acer monitor for a couple of years now, and it never made any problems, until two weeks ago. Whenever I turned it on, the picture would be there for two seconds and then go out, although the monitor would stay on( the light is green). I would then need to turn it on 10 more times till it would have a constant picture, which would last till I turned it off again.
Yesterday, when I turned it on, it started displaying weird lines and malfunctioning, as well as only showing for two seconds and dissapearing again. I've checked everything and it works, as I am writing now on a CRT monitor and nothing is wrong. What is wrong, and can I fix it?
I have had one of these acer al1711 fail - goes blank after 10 minutes. When warm goes out after 2 or 3 seconds . I have another OK unit and swapped the two logic boards around. 1 board is the video driver other is power invertor. This did NOT fix the problem.
The issue is with the LCD itself or the Lightsource. I cannot make out an unlit image anywhere!
I may try to see if I can swap the lightsources around!

This is possibly an inverter. When the monitor goes out, examine the LCD to see if you can see a faint image of the video being displayed. IF so, replace inverter. If not, possibly a bad LCD or video circuitry.
