Question about Acer AL1716Bbd 17" LCD Monitor

Open Question

ACER AL1716 will power on but will not reponding to any input.

Okay i picked up a freebie from a friend didn't know what was wrong with it but hey its free and i play a lot of games and so forth so yeah. anyways the screen powers on but from what i can see tries to connect with signal but fails and will simply reboot and try again a few seconds later and than stays lite but black and blank. i do not us with a computer but have tried to use it with one. I tried first with my 360 with a VGA connector (i know it works cause i was using another LCD monitor before i picked this one up) and i would use a DVI input if i could but it does not come with one so I'm stumped, I've tried everything to my knowledge. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Bought a load of these for our office. Out of the 40 we have had around 6 that do exactly this. While under warranty they were replaced by Acer. Now they aren't we have to bin them. It appears to be a hardware fault with the Acer. I would love to know if they can be fixed with new capacitors or the like. Am happy to solder to fix.

SOURCE: monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

SOURCE: Acer AL1716 blank screen but powers.

Probably a bad inverter board, the inverter board powers the bulbs that display the image. this is VERY common problem on all LCD tv's,laptops and monitors.

usually a small transformer blows open on the inverter board. the innverter needs to be replaced if this is the this case.

SOURCE: 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.

Acer al1716 dont work


When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.
