My monitor will only blink a black or white screen.

Ive had my acer monitor for less than 2 months now and all a sudden it stops working. it has a plain black screen and then blinks to a white screen then back to black. ive ruled out the cable and the computer i know its the monitor itself. id really like to get it working again.

Check the warranty online for your screen.. go the the acer support website and look up warranties, and it will ask for a really long number on the back of your screen, and it will tell how long the warranty is good for and what to do with it.
Mine is doing the same thing. flashes white then black and that is all

Hello there.

Try the monitor with ANOTHER computer,

This will prove whether it is the Monitor at fault or not.

Monitor works ok then suddenly loose picture(black screen) turn monitor off then turn it back on works for approx 5 secs then goes back to black screen

there are many reason why a monitor suddenly turned off then back to work again , over use may over heat that cause the soled parts on the printed board of your CRT go loosen , try to re sold it, sometimes your PC might stop viewing so the monitor automatically shot off stby mode , loose connection due to basted parts , capacitors,power regulators,resistors , even the cables also might be.

Ive had that problem recent, same monitor. Same months to be exact, though started around October 2010 then got worse. Do not send it back to Acer, I did and the cost was 20 bucks to ship to them and all I got was a note and monitor back saying they tested and then did Extended testing and found nothing. Not even had it for 1 year or 2 years to say, 3 year warranty. Just going to buy a new one and perhaps a LED from ASUS, the V stands for Value on Acer website, guess I got what I payed for. Think it was $166 I payed for this thing. It is shame, as its nice monitor but I cannot have it not trusty like this, cannot even play some games without it going off like this. Worst if I put the monitor in Graphics or Movie mode makes it worse it seems.

Sounds like a problem with the video board of the monitor. I would contact Acer, since it less than 3 yrs old, tell them the problem that you are having get an RMA number and they will fix it for free. You only have to pay for shipping it back. Hope this helps.

My monitor screen is black and the yellow standby light is blinking. I can not get the light to stop blinking or get the monitor to show anything, but a black screen. What can I do to coerrect the problem?

mcdevito75 here, Press the SHIFT key, a screen should come up telling you too click on your user name, left lower side of screen. If this doesn"t work, press the yellow blinking light on the monitor see if picture comes back, then follow the directions. If this doesn"t work, shut computer down with switch on the computer itself. Hope this helps.

Strips of 2 inch wide black and white, running top to bottom

Definately a damaged screen, no way to fix it for less than the cost of a replacement screen sorry.
