Acer Monitor Doesn't Receive Signal From Computer

I have a fairly new (about a year and a half) Acer AL1706 monitor that is not receiving the signal from the computer. It powers on, but comes up with the message, "No Signal" and goes black. Sometimes restarting the computer helps, but this problem keeps coming up.

Re: Acer Monitor Doesn't Receive Signal From Computer

Can you test your monitor on another computer to verify the monitor is at fault? If the monitor is at fault its time for a new one, factory warranties on monitors are usually 1 year unless you purchased an extended warranty.Otherwise repair is usually more costly than buying a new one.

My Insignia Monitor doesn't work with my laptop, I've tried everything, from pc settings to cables, etc, i only receive a NO SIGNAL ad

Usually you have to toggle the display output on the laptop. The FN key + one of the F# keys with a monitor icon on it. Toggle it until it outputs to the monitor. Your getting "no signal" because no signal is being sent to the monitor or you have the monitor on the wrong input if it has multiple inputs.

My acer monitor p191w will turn on acer logo comes on goes black then a screen comes out saying no signal then turns of light turns yellow ...tried restarting monitor nothing

Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.

Power button blinking on and off. Not powering up. Acer x223w lcd monitor.

it means your monitor doesn't receive any signal from the system unit, have you check its connection? or RAM, or your video card? try to clean your RAM with a pencil eraser like wise with your Vcard, maybe one of them is busted. Now replace it

The monitor starts up displaying no signal

This means that the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer. When it doesn't receive a signal, it goes to sleep. You should check to make sure that the video cable is tightly connected, and also, if you have another monitor around, connect the other monitor to the computer and see if it works. It's possible that your monitor has malfunctioned.

At start up the AL1706 monitor stays black and the green light blinks on and off. I have to restart four or five times before it eventually works

cyndommett, If not into repair work, and can afford trade for new, GET NEW ONE if current AL1706 is 4, 5, 6, years old. To understand your monitor's problem, spend an hour or two reading my and other lcd monitor tech's FIXYA profile's and testimonials. Then and only then will you have a handle on what options are at your disposal and the reason why your unit has FAILED. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Acer monitor AL1706 Power On problem

You are more likely to have bad capacitors problem in the power supply, inverter circuits. I would look for bad caps first. Look at some of the sample here:

Extrenal monitor does not receive signal from acer. The monitor connects easily but does not show the acer screen.

Make sure you are using the Fn key and toggling the F4 monitor key to select between the monitors or to use both... not sure if it's F4 on an Acer but look for the key that has two computer screens on it.

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.

Monitor has no picture

Yes! :)

Your monitor is not the problem. Check all the connections from the back of the monitor, to the computer.

"No Signal Analog" means your monitor is working perfectly, however is not receiving signal from the computer.

Didnt find any loose cables?
Try unplugging everything. Leave it unplugged for at least 5 minutes. You need to give the system time to drain all the excess power.

Again your monitor is fine, blue light > No signal > orange light is totally normal for your montior.
