ACER AL 2017 goes dark after half second of image.

I see the desktop for half a second, or 1 second and then the screen goes to very dark. I can faintly see the image in the BG. Can you suggest a solution based on the symptoms? I see someone eles had samd issues but I didn't see any follow up.

Many thanks.

    Salmd,
    Thank you for taking an interest in my problem.
    The monitor does this each time you turn the monitor on. I have replaced it with a Dell 17 inch LCD and computer output is just fine.
    Again, thanks for your help.
    Aaron

    When does this happen ? at system startup? at random? or when you turn the screen on?

I had the same problem with the same monitor. You could see the image, but extremely faintly. In my case, the problem ended up being the inverter board (Delta DAC-12M033), which I found refurbished on Ebay for $45.00. Takes about 30 minutes and about 15 screws to replace, if you are handy in that department. Just my $0.02 worth. Hope that helps!

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.

I just repaired one.... will likely require that you replace 3 X 220 uf 25 volt capactiros and 2 X 1000 uf 25 volt capacitors. can't miss them the tops are swelled up. but the monitor appears to work now... not bad for 5 bucks worth of parts.

Scceen flickers on and off


You'll have to describe the problem in a bit more detail, because it could be a couple different things based on when it goes dark and what "dark" means.

I'm going to guess that the monitor is turning itself off after that second, but you might be describing that it doesn't say it's off, but there is no image (or maybe a really faint image that you can see in the bright light). Try checking it in the bright light after it goes dark. Also, does it seem different if you bang on, shake, or turn it upside down. Don't do this if you haven't already as it will more likely damage it than fix it, but if you have already banged on it, does it change?

I'm working on the same model with a similar problem (not sure it's the same) and will be ripping into it soon and will post the results.
