.won't turn on. all plugs are in properly. has

When you turn on the main power socket to the monitor, does the front LED turn come on (Green/Orange)? If not, try changing the power cord or the fuse inside the power cord.

My Acer AL1916 won't turn on. The power light is flashing, but besides that there is no response. This has happened several times, but I've always been able to 'fix' it by puling all the cables out,...

This is an indication that the monitor is not receiving signal from your video or graphics card.

You may try to connect the monitor into a known working computer to see if the monitor will work. And if it does, then the problem has something to do with the video or graphics card.

Try to open the case of your CPU (make sure that it's unplugged from the power source), unscrew the graphics card, pull it out from the slot, and then clean it using a clean cloth to remove the dust.

Then re-seat the card.

Thank you and good luck!

I booted up my computer this morning and my AL1916 monitor has a very red tone. I can't access the menu to change the display. What can I do?

Red tones are usually caused by a few things.
First try to reseat or use a differnent vga cable from your computer.
If that does not work, There may be a bad bulb in the lcd panel. (bad bulbs will show up red until they totally burn out, then the monitor wont stay lit.)
There is also a chance that the power board is getting weak and isn't putting out enough power to fully light the bulbs.
To check for the problem in the board or possibly the screen, the monitor would have to be opened up.
If you decide to try that and can send pictures of the boards, we may be able to figure it out.

Acer AL1916 can't start

If you press the power button and nothing comes on at all then something isn't providing power to the laptop as it should and you may likely need to replace the battery or the power cord.

Find a replacement battery. Change your battery with a new one then plug it up and turn on to see if this works.

If replacing the battery doesn't work then replace the power cord and trying turning it on again. If this doesn't work either, you have a more serious issue going on.

Not too long ago, I was on vacation, my laptop had been working fine until suddenly it wouldn't come on at all. I went into the office to grab a new battery and power cord. (I work on computers so I had spare parts in my office/Tech Room.)

I got home and replaced the battery then tried to turn it on using the old power cord...didn't work. This was a brand new battery so now I knew that I could rule out the battery as the issue...the only two things left to troubleshoot were the power cord and the laptop itself.

I put my old battery back in the laptop then tried to turn it on using a different power cord and it worked. I didn't need to replace my battery or laptop. The power cord had failed.

I hope that your issue is as simple as this solution. Try confirming whether your battery and power cord are still may just need to replace one or the other.

Red tinting with the Acer LCD monitor AL1916

Amazingly enough my monitor did the same thing and while looking for the serial number the problem got resolved. Since I don't know exactly how it got fixed I will tell you what I did. I turned the monitor off, removed the power cord from the unit, turned the surge protector off and back on, placed the monitor face down on my chair to read the serial number, reconnected the power cord and turned the unit back on. The problem was fixed. Go figure.

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!
