    I have the same problem. Just bought an Acer 64-bit Vista Computer with 4 GB RAM) with a 24" Acer X243W LCD monitor.

    After setting up the PC and started working on it, the screen display would go blank for second or two. It is sporadic. It happens either someone is using the computer or not.

    Please help before I send this away for repair or replacement. I'm just afraid that this is typical of Acer monitors.

I've had the same issue with my AL1916 for a couple of months. Now, one morning it decided to call it quits altogether and won't turn on at all.

I have this same Issue also. Some days worse than others. I'll just be reading/typing on my computer (not really working the computer at all) and the screen will go blank for 2 sec then back on again. Sometimes its every few seconds for a few minutes. sometimes it lasts hours... any suggestions?

Why does screen go black after a few seconds

Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

Turn on computer and Acer Monitor ( AL1913) and nothing but black screen. Know the computer is good as I hooked another monitor to it and worked fine. Frank

fbwhite, Was your screen also BLANK, along with it being BLACK? The flashlight test would have told you! Yes, it could be both, or just BLACK. Read my FIXYA profile and that of other FIXYA tech's (budmrtn and buddymc) and it will become crystal clear to you the problem your monitor has and the options you have open to you. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

It switches on for just a second and then the screen stays blank

yetimonsta, Are you sure that the monitor is BLANK?? Or is it just BLACK? Or is it both BLANK and BLACK? Connect a known good monitor to your pc to prove that your pc is working correctly. What does your L90D+ do when connected to good pc. Have you done the flashlight test to evaluate the state of the "switch-mode-power-supply" when lcd panel goes black /blank?? View more of my profile on fixya and you will discover all the options you have open to you. 12fixlouie

Monitor goes blank coming out of power save mode

I found this on the Internet...

"Press the "Input" button on your LCD monitor's front panel repeatedly at three- or four-second intervals until your monitor wakes up. If your monitor is set to an incorrect input mode, it won't receive a video signal. After you reset the monitor to the proper input mode, it will receive the signal and wake up automatically."

I have provided a Link with more info for you!

Check your connections to the PC. Make sure that they are nice and secure. If there is a resolution problem setting it should display the boot process and then go blank after starting the operating system.

Power supply on 17" acer monitor

franh, Typical of a lcd/fpd monitor! There is nothing you or hundreds of others can do to repair it all by yourself. I have repaired 3 monitors and helped tutor 2 others on fixya with their monitors. All had same exact symptom as your monitor. I need you to do a simple test for me. With failed Acer monitor near to your Fully Booted PC with a known good desktop being displayed on back-up monitor, quickly swap out the monitor cables from the back of the PC. Keep touching the CTRL key on you keyboarb every 30-50 seconds to keep the PC from sending out sleep mode command to monitor while doing the reconnect of acer to your PC monitor output port. Make sure the Acer also is connected to a live wall outlet/power strip. Turn on the Acer and note what happens. If screen shows a sharp clear image for a second, then goes black, do the following. Get a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen from a distance of 1 or 2 inches and tell me if you can see the desktop display. get back to me with your observations.

Your backlight is starting to go bad! These backlights are little tiny florecent bulbs, these can be replaced and they do burn out. Sounds like your back light is bad! Could be costly to replace as there are not too many places out there that will replace the bulbs.
