Okay heres the problem it powers on and shows nothing, i get a green power light and the back light of the monitor but there is no input signal, no visual display all it will do is blink every some odd seconds. I've used it with other computers and it doesn't work, I've also used it on my 360 (which was the intended use) but it will do just the same (note: I've used another monitor for my 360 and it worked just fine with my Xbox 360 VGA adapter) so as of right now I'm in a complete rut.

Definitely a problem with the monitor. If you can get the back open
then look at the main board and the power board. You will want to look
for puffy capacitors. Instead of a flat top it will look puffy like its
If you find any like that then you need to replace
them with new capacitors that have the same Uf rating and at least the
same voltage or higher.
This will take some unsoldering and
soldering skills. Make sure the stiped edge gets aligned with the
striped edge on the board.
If you replaced them then the monitor
should turn back on. If it doesn't then its a screen problem and you'll
need to get a new monitor.
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.

The problem on your monitor is a bad power supply. Because of heat buildup in LCD monitors parts called capacitors overheat and blow out. You can go to our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and see what to look for. If you open your monitor and see blown capacitors that look like the pictures on our site then replace the bad ones and you should be back going. Email me if you have additional questions or if you need to get the capacitors, we carry them in stock.
i have experienced the same problem (power cycles on and off and on and off... nothing but Acer logo and black screen) on 2 Acer model 1706 A version 1706 Ab monitors both built in July 2006. Before the customer reported the 2nd monitor with the same problem, i sent the 1st one into Acer for warranty service (after testing in on 4 machines w/4 different video cards). They shipped it back with a paper saying the monitor was repaired. I returned the monitor to the customer and it exhibited the same symptoms (aka, not repaired). Could there have been a bad batch in July 2006? When I plug a new Acer AL1716 monitor into the same computers, I have no problems at all.
