ACER AL 1912 Colors bad screen shakes

My Acer AL 1912 started having bad colors and a shaky screen. The colors seem washed out. It is not the video card, the computer, or the settings. It does it no matter what after about 1 minute. I want to open it and replace parts but what part might it be?

Contrast on my acer monitor is bad how do you adjust it

You can use the monitor's own settings, but that doesn't work very well. I just bought an Acer V233H monitor myself, and I am very disappointed about the quality of contrast and color.

However, I have NVIDIA video card, which comes with software that you can use to adjust gamma, colors, contrast etc. That worked better for me. Still not perfect, but better than the monitor's own settings.

Screen Goes Blank

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.

Acer AL 1912 (black) resolution issue

[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Screen flickers for about 20-30 seconds sporadically

Try looking at the LCD screen at a sharp angle to see if ghost-like video can be seen during the 'off' time of the flicker.  If video is still present even though not that visible, then either the backlight or its power supply are failing. The color problem could also be caused by a backlight lamp that is not ionizing completely.

White turns to pink on acer laptop

I had the same problem but the white color became cyan.
I "solved" the problem hiting the back of the monitor. I think that is a problem of contacts between the signal of the monitor and the pc.
I have an acer 5610z.

There are two types of lines.

Lines caused by a bad LCD screen and lines caused by poor sync.

A bad LCD will cause perfectly straight vertical and horizontal lines that don't move at all. This is because the row and column addressing ICs have gone bad, so you will end up with rows or columns of bad pixels.

Poor sync looks more like what you are describing. The picture will flip vertically and horizontally.

Poor or missing sync can be caused by a bad video cable, or a bad IC on the main board.

If the monitor has a removable video cable, borrow another one from a friend to test if the monitor is working. If it works, head to your local computer store and buy a new cable.
If the monitor still doesn't work with a different cable, you may have a bad main board. The only way to repair the monitor will be to replace the board.

If you open the monitor, be sure to check for bad capacitors. They can cause all sorts of strange faults. Look elsewhere on this site for how-tos on inspecting capacitors.

If your video cable is not removable, there's not much you can do. You will need a way to test that each pin on the cable connector on the main board conducts to a corresponding pin on the other end of the cable. You can do this if you have a multimeter, or a continuity tester.
