Re: acer al1716 monitor problem

Dear gentlemen,

Hope this helps and give you hints what has caused the problem. After confirming the CPU or PC is good, please consider monitor has internal problem. If you can managed to open the chassis please check the HOT (horizontal output transistor) first, if good try checking primary and secondary components of SPMS (switching mode power supply), the control circuit, feedback, driver circuit, standby mini power supply if present and load of smps that makes the SMPS won't work fine. But please ask for assisstance in opening the chassis with certified technician guy due to High Voltage Shock risk.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

Powers on, screen is black

Try it on another computer, if it still does not work, then you will need to open it up. More likely to have bad caps (leaking/bulging tops). Please see my pictures here so you will know what to look for inside.
Please post back.

Black screen. Power light is on. Everything is plugged in properly. Rebooted several times. BLACK screen. Not even a flicker of light. HELP!

Have you tried reseating the cables? if not try it first, then if it doesn't work you'll notice that after you unplug the cable that's connecting the lcd from where it's plugged in , (make sure the lcd is on) if you see the colors that means the lcd is working properly if not then there is something wrong with the monitor, but if the colors came up the lcd is working fine,. Try to check where you plug it in.

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.

Acer AL1716 Power problem?

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.

Acer AL1716 monitor flickers

i Have the same problem, this screen is used on the spare computer we have in a loft conversion and the room does get rather cold, Warming the screen up with a fan heater for a couple of minutes gets rid of the problem. When the fault occurs the buttons on the front to adjust the picture quality don't work they just turn off the monitor.
