Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles

The Monitor turns on correctly but then goes through a cycle where the Acer logo is displayed for a few seconds, then fades out, then you see a flash of the display from the computer, then repeats. Tried multiple off/on cycles, disconnecting from the computer, etc., without success. When disconnected from the computer the green light remains on and the monitor still cycles between a black screen and the Acer logo.

Re: Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer...

We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.

Computer monitor cycles on and off when the computer boots up but seems to have constant power when just turned on

The boot process goes through various display modes. Each time it switches, the monitor has to set itself for that mode. This causes the monitor to flicker while it's adjusting. Perfectly normal operation.

I have a acer.x223w when,it powers up the.screem stays black, n i get a blue blinking light on.the bottom

I disagree with ikkenom only due to the symptom of the flashing blue light. This would indicate to me that the monitor is not getting any display signal and is in sleep mode at least the is what happens on my Samsung monitor. Used to be that they use a two color led in the monitor, green when ON and getting display signal and amber or orange when in sleep mode. I would check the computer by trying a different monitor. If you have a second monitor, great, if not, maybe a friend will let you bring your computer over and try the computer with their monitor. Could also be a display adapter setting. Do you get any change when you first turn on your computer? i.e. Do you get the BIOS or manufacturer screen when first turned on? Also if you disconnect the monitor cable from the computer and power cycle the monitor, do you get a No Signal display for a few seconds before the monitor goes black and the blue light starts flashing?

Let me know what happens with the testing above or if you need further instructions to carry out testing.

Thanks, Jim

When I boot up my computer, it takes my Acer monitor 20 minutes to show the desktop. It flashes the Acer logo, then goes black, then flashes again, and repeats till it finally comes on. Could it be a...

It's probally the inverter board that drives the backlight in your monitor is failing causing the digital board to reset. I think Acer has a 3 yr warranty. If the monitor is less than 3 years, I would call them and ask them to repair it. They will fix it for free if it less than 3 yrs old, it will only cost to you is shipping it to TX. Hope this helps.

Monitor image flashes off and on

Sounds like you've done all the trouble shooting. If you just need that extra nudge, I would agree... it sounds like you'll be needing to shop for a new monitor.

Acer LCD Monitor only displays "acer" logo

You are correct, it could be a power surge that has caused it.

Try this..
Unplug the monitor from the wall.
Remove all the video connections at the monitor end.
Wait 10 minutes then plug the monitor back into the wall (do not connect the video leads)

Turn it on and see if it goes past the ACER logo now. If so, replace the video cables and try the computer.
If not, then one of these will apply and a tech will be required..
  1. The internal bios has been corrupted.
  2. The power supply inside the monitor may have issues preventing the video board from starting correctly. This could be as simple as a few failing capacitors.
Number 2 is the most likely cause with an Acer monitor though. Any local tech will be able to correct it fairly cheaply, but phone around for quotes..they can vary a lot.
