Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor
Hi, somebody help me! When my PC is turned on the monitor is working perfect, but when I turn off my PC (and the monitor stays plugged into electricity) the display starts blinking green - red - blue - yellow. I press the power button on the monitor but nothing changes, it is still playing these disco colours. Very thankful for any answers!
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.

Enter the service menu by pressing "Menu", "left" (a F turns from black to red) und "menu"
Go with the rigth-button to "Brunin", hit "Menu", change value to "Off" by pressing left or right key, press "Menu" to save
go with left or right keys to "exit" and hit "menu" to leave the service menu, press "auto" to leave the OSM

LOL, it's a factory test pattern.
Something has happened to both your screens to set it to do that instead of going to sleep like good little monitors.
Normally the best way around it is to turn the screen off as soon as you tell Windows to shutdown.
This is normally a glitch in the bios, or it can happen if you accidently press a combination of buttons on the front control panel. That is how the service modes are accessed.
