Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer Flat Screen AL1916 A

It is a little over a year old, just out of warranty. In the morning it makes a clicking sound and will not power up. For a few times taking out the power cord and putting it back in solved the problem, but now it will not stop clicking and won't come on at all.

Any ideas what this is all about?

Hi ,first unplug the monitor both from mains and the comp, keep it that way for some time and then check, and secondly the clicking sound might be of the relays used in the power curcit, check the relays,let me know

Power-on LED AL1916 acer LCD screen doesn't work, no display

Hi - I've just fixed ny AL1921 which would be similar to yours internally. There are a couple of issues which are common:

Bad soldering around some of the copper coils (insulation may not have been properly stripped and leads to intermittent connection and (much more likely)

Blown electrolytics.

If you have ANY electrolytics on the main board which are swollen at the top or have electrolyte oozing out of them at the top or where they meet the board, then replace them.

My ACER started flickering and switching off randomly (no power light on the front either) and I though the power supply inside was toast. However, I found two electrolytics on the large power board (1000u / 16v) which had a black crust at the top. I replaced these and the monitor sprang back into life. Try to use replacements which have a temperature rating of 105 degrees C. Basically I think these things give out just after the guarantee runs out.

Hope that works for you.

Green Flash power only on one computer

It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.

No, because it sounds like the backlight has blown. These LCD monitors utilize a backlight, just like the florecent bulbs we see in office buildings. Alot smaller! These things can be repaired, but by the time you figure out how and when you track down the bulbs you would have purchased a new for all of that time. But they can be repaired!

Monitor dims for one account, not the other

I would first contact the GF administrator and ask them if they've heard of this before. Then I would contact Acer.
