Question about Acer 19" LCD Monitor
Its as if it has a life of its own.
1) The monitor seems to want to turn itself off after 1 second of being turned back on.
2) i turn it on, it turns itself off
3) Sometimes when i just let it do its thing, it turns itself back on, for more than 1 second (ranging from 2 seconds to 10 minutes).
4) user (i) have no control of the monitor
5) After it turns itself off, i can press the menu or the auto button on the monitor, and it'll turn on, but it turns itself back off at will.
i've checked my pc for viruses and any other baddies. No issues.
i've checked all the connections - no issues
Help!! i got the monitor about a year or so ago.
When the monitor does work, are you able to see image very well? If so, then check the monitors conection to the PC. Look into the plug itself, are any of the pins bent?
If a computer monitor does not see a connection, or is not getting video feed, it will shut itself off to save power.
Could also be as simple as a bad cord on the monitor as well.
If not, then it could be the computer resolution set too high. To fix that, reboot in safe mode (hit F8 during boot) and change screen rez while in that mode.

Ok so its connected to your pc?
check settings on the monitor itself [if you'restill able to do that]
disconnect all your usb devices restart your computer and try again.
Is it in a cold room ? that might be the problem.
Is it in the same powerbar as your computer ?
I'm not sure but if your power outlet where you connect it is simply looped to the rest that are in use [lazy electrician] then it might turn off because a power shortage.

Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the
problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over
three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had
been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is
the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the
monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture
and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be
the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety
circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the
backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that
flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem
usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.
All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.
