Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Horizontal banding that looks like Interference

I have a Acer AL2216W. Just plugged it in for first time. Looks great except in dark areas i can see that there is a shimmering horizontal banding that looks like interference or like my Dell Inspiron Laptop is too much of a dinosaur to keep up with the insane power.
Well anyhow, how do I correct this annoyance. And will this same problem turn up when I get my new MAC laptop and use my Acer Monitor with that?

I would take this in for a service check could be issues that need resolving from a service standpoint not a simple driver or resolution fix

My zenith lcd tv has horizontal black lines whih form a band about 3 inches wide across the screen, sometimes the band looks more like a dark shadow than lines other times the right side of the screen...


This is either 1 of 2 things, first it could be faulty panel tabs , in this case, there is nothing you can do and is unrepairable....2) you could take the back off the tv and you will see 2 ribbons going from your t-con board to the panel tabs (top center of tv) remove them carefully and reseat them. This is a common problem. Tv repair tech 15 years! Best of luck.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?


I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.

Pictur


I have had a similar problem. Pictureres look like they are taken through a Venetial blind with white horizontal bands though I did get one with dark banding. It appears to have something to do with light levels. I took a few pics in a dark area with no flash and now it is working again...until it quits working again. Perhaps it is something to do with light level calibration? Whatever it is the problem is internal. If you are still under warranty, I highly recommend taking your camera in for repairs/replacement. Ours started acting up just after the warranty expired so no love for us.

Reddish cast in photos, white objects look pink.


Hello dcmassey, the cause of the problem can be CCD imager. So, the best solution is to claim for Sony recall. If there is some other problem ask for the price estimate. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service. Best regards, Arpi
