Question about Acer AL2017 20" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Had a Acer al2017

It is always on in a PD dispatch area connected to UPS (with no errors on it). screen went blank during fire dispatch put a new monitor in place using a different power source and it worked fine.

Put the al2017 on the same new power source and it worked fine....

Put the new monitor hooked up to the power cord the al2017 was on and it worked.

Put the al2017 back in place using the original power source and it worked....for a minute then went black (no leds) and would not work even on the new power cord in a different power source.

Pannel seems hot. Walked it back to my office...few minutes later so it had a chance to cool down and now is working fine in my office.... I am leaving it plugged in an always on to replicate but may have to return it to acer...any other thoughts?

If your picture was okay when it was running and the screen was not pinkish then the power board inside the monitor is in need of an overhaul.
Your unplugging it and plugging it back in just did a temporary reset by discharging the capaciotrs for a bit.
It more than likely needs new capacitors installed.
I have done a few of these and do a lot of inverter power board repairs through ebay id bammbammfran

The monitor was working fine this morning came home switched on no picture switched of monitor and turned back on to find that the picture returned for a brief moment then the screen went blank again try...


If you did see an image when you turned it off and on, then more than likely it is the inverter or ccfl backlights in the monitor. You would have to take it in to a tech for repairs, but in most instances it is just cheaper to buy a new monitor.

MY MONITOR SHOWS NO SIGNAL,I HAVE 15 PIECES SAME LIKE THAT PROBLEM,PLZ GIVE ME SOLUTION,MAY I REPAIR IT


  • Check for loose electrical and VGA cables. Remove the electric cord from the back of the monitor, then put it back in place. Remove the VGA cable from the computer and monitor and put it back in place. Make sure the connection is tight. If you're using a cable extender, remove it.
  • 2 Plug the monitor's electric cord into a different outlet. If you're using a UPS or surge protector, plug it directly into a wall outlet.
  • 3 Attach the monitor to a different computer. If the monitor still doesn't work, replace the monitor's cable. Make sure the cable is less than 5 feet long. If it still doesn't work, the monitor will need to be replaced or repaired. If it works with no problem on the other computer, troubleshoot your video card.
  • 4 Unplug your computer from the monitor and power outlet. Remove the cover. Pull the video card out of the slot on the system board. Push it back into place. Be sure the connection is secure.
  • 5 Put the CD that came with your video card into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Follow the directions to reinstall the video card drivers. Download a new version of the drivers from the manufacturer's website if necessary.
  • 6 Right-click a blank area of your Desktop. Choose "Properties" from the display menu. Click the "Settings" tab. Try different screen resolutions to resolve the problem.
  • 7 Determine whether the problem is caused by electrical interference. Electrical interference will make the monitor appear jumpy or wavy. Move any speakers, radios, fans or other items that can cause electrical interference away from the monitor.

    How to receive dispatch reception on uniden bc72xlt


    Most dispatch communications in and around major metropolitan areas are now handled via trunked radio systems which your BC72XLT is not capable of monitoring. Some dispatch, especially fire and EMS, should be available to you, and possibly some police activity. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and services in your area, visit:

    While installing windows xp monitor went blank, cd started to blink and would not open. I was useing a crt monitor at the time due to the fact thats alli had. HELP, what's wrong


    Turn off the computer. Try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. After each reseat of the memory try turning on the computer and see if you get video back on the screen.

    If not then try another monitor. If all that doesn't get video back on the screen then the motherboard is bad in the computer.
