Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor issues I bought an Acer LCD AL1916W 19" and just after 3 months of use, i get the same problem that most of these people are posting about. I turn on the LCD now and after 5 seconds it goes to black. Sometimes the green light turns orange, but on a rare occasion. I have dismantled my LCD, checked the inverter board, checked the fuse, and to my eye, nothing seems wrong. I take a light source and shine it behind the LCD and i see a picture. I turn the LCD off and then back on again, and i get a good picture, then 5 seconds later it goes back to black. And it still shows the picture with another light source put onto it. Now i have read about the capacitors being the problem, but on the back of mine, there are close to 10 capacitors. Do i replace them all? I have also contacted Acer about this problem and they made me fill out a repair form to ship my LCD out of province to get repaired. That was the last i heard from them. So i am turning to the public. Please help!!!
